Named after the 19th Century Whistler painting, 'The Little Rose' is a Grade II Listed town centre property, reputedly dating from the 16th Century, constructed principally of stone walls rendered externally beneath a slate roof. The property is arranged over three floors and provides spacious accommodation with the additional benefit of a cellar storage area running the length and width of the house which may have potential to convert into ancillary accommodation (STPP and conversation consent).
Great care has been taken to modernise No. 1 in order to retain its inherent character features that give the property its quaint charm. Improvements include installation of gas central heating (we understand that the hot water system can also be supplemented by the multi-fuel stove) and a new ensuite shower room - all combined with delightful period features such as exposed beams, wooden flooring and wall paneling and an impressive large open fireplace.
The Living Room, with its own door leading directly onto Church Street, was formerly a shop and has the potential to be re-instated (subject to necessary Local Authority consents). The property is only a few metres from the seafront, beaches, town centre shops and amenities, a rare feature which further enhances The Little Rose s excellent reputation for Bed & Breakfast.
Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.
The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset Jurassic Coast awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
