Full Description:FOR IMPROVEMENT
SELF-CONTAINED FIRST FLOOR FLAT IN AN ESTABLISHED RESIDENTIAL AREA WITH VIEWS OVER THE TOWN TO THE SEA AND WOODLAND TRUST
This self-contained ex-Local Authority flat is on the first floor of a 2-storey block of just 4 flats. It is believed to have been built in the 1930's and has the benefit of front and rear gardens.
The property does require modernisation although uPVC double glazed windows are fitted. A particular feature of the property is its first floor views over the town to the sea and across the valley to Woodland Trust at Slopes Farm.
The property is situated on the corner of Colway Lane and North Avenue and just a couple of minutes' walk down the lane is the tiny river Lym with a picturesque riverside walk to the Old Town, shops and seafront.
Lyme Regis is an historic 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.
