Full Description:

ONE OF THE FINEST LOCATIONS IN THIS PICTURESQUE FISHING VILLAGE
A CHARMING 4 BEDROOMED PERIOD COTTAGE RENOVATED TO A VERY HIGH STANDARD
SPECTACULAR VIEWS OF BEER BEACH, LYME BAY AND THE DORSET COASTLINE

This generously proportioned period cottage must occupy one of the finest seaside locations in East Devon. It enjoys stunning views of the sea, beach and West Dorset coastline to Portland. Inland there are views across the village to the countryside beyond.

Within 100 metres is the delightful Beer beach which is in a sheltered cove protected from prevailing winds by the limestone cliffs of Beer Head. Not only is this a great meeting place for locals and visitors alike (with 3 beachside cafes) it is also home to a small fleet of working fishing boats, Beer Sailing and Lugger Club and has space for boat parking (subject to availability).

The cottage has been tastefully renovated, improved and maintained to a very high standard. Works have included a new roof and loft conversion in 2008, double glazed traditionally styled sash windows (timber on the top floor and uPVC elsewhere) which provide easy tilt for cleaning; fitted kitchen, rewiring, replumbing (including quality sanitary ware) etc. The result is a well proportioned 4 Bedroomed house with light and bright accommodation ideal as a holiday retreat, stylish permanent home or a great holiday let.

Beer is much admired for its many character houses and cottages and is unspoilt by commercialism. It has a thriving local community, a selection of shops for day to day needs, pubs and restaurants, primary school, parish church, village hall, doctors surgery etc. Close by to the cottage at the top of Common Lane is a lovely cliff top walk to the neighbouring village of Branscombe to the west and also Seaton eastwards.

There is a regular bus service to Axminster Station (Waterloo 3 hours) and Exeter Airport is only 17 miles away. Nearby are the larger towns of Sidmouth and Lyme Regis.
