3 bedroom House - Terraced located at Lyme Regis - Guide Price of £ 350,000
Full Description:A SYMPATHETICALLY MODERNISED 3 BEDROOMED PERIOD PROPERTY ON AN EXCLUSIVE COUNTRY AND COASTAL ESTATE SET 3 MILES FROM LYME REGIS
This pretty end of terrace cottage forms part of an imaginative conversion of a Victorian outbuilding, formerly used for part of the day to day running of the impressive Peek House Estate and Allhallows School.
The elevations are faced in natural stone and sit beneath a tiled roof. The accommodation has been sympathetically refurbished with charming character finishings such as beautiful oak crossed and braced cottage style doors (some with intricate stained-glass panels), wooden flooring and exposed beams.
The property is one of 4 buildings that form Home Farm South. It has a sunny south facing garden and allocated parking for one car. Surrounding the estate are the beautifully kept 350 acre grounds of which each property owner has access to and allows quiet enjoyment of the woodland and countryside walks as well as exclusive use of the private Charton Bay Beach.
The Rousdon Estate is a remarkably intact late 19th Century Estate, including the Grade II* Listed Mansion, Estate buildings, Chapel, Lodges, walled garden (with some buildings and structures Listed Grade II), gardens, drive, private beach and park. The nearby 'Undercliff' is a National Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, whilst the whole Estate lies within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In 1870 Sir Henry Peek, MP for Wimbledon, who had been engaged in the tea trade since the end of the 18th Century, purchased the village of Rousdon. He commissioned Sir Ernest George to design a Mansion and other buildings to take advantage of the superb position 500 feet (some 150m) above sea level. Being some distance from the nearest town, the house had to be self-sufficient with laundry, coach houses, harness rooms, wine cellars, bowling alley, rifle range, china stores, bake houses, larders, museum, observatory, walled garden, tennis courts, farm buildings and numerous cottages to house the Estate population, which at the end of the 19th Century extended to around 600.
The Estate was sold by the Peek family in 1930 to Allhallows School and was acquired by Rousdon Estate Limited in 1999 when the school closed. The Mansion and Estate buildings have now been converted into residential properties.

Each property has the benefit of walks within the Estate and access to a private beach (Charton Beach) and also the famous 'Undercliff' coastal footpath between Lyme Regis and the Axe Estuary and Axmouth.
