Full Description:

Portland Heights is a small collection of 5 newly built colonial style houses occupying an elevated site on the western fringes of Lyme Regis

This must be one of the most spectacular sites in West Dorset. It is located high on the western outskirts of Lyme Regis with superb panoramic views taking in Lyme Bay, the unspoilt West Dorset coastline and across the picturesque countryside of the Lym Valley

It is quietly tucked away and approached by a private driveway in one of Lyme's most prestigious residential locations about 3/4 mile from the town centre and seafront.

Portland Heights is an extensive small development of 5 detached houses and Plot 5 probably occupies the largest plot in a secluded corner on the southern edge of the site.

The houses are of highly energy efficient timber construction with a natural slate roof and clad in an attractive New England style.

Features include bright and spacious accommodation, underfloor heating (downstairs), extensive use of engineered oak and travertine tiling, designer kitchen with Neff appliances, 4 bedrooms (2 with ensuites and a family bathroom) and enjoying super sea and coastal views. Outside Plot 5 enjoys a good sized secluded garden with an excellent timber and glazed verandah running across almost the full width at the rear.
