Full Description:


A charming detached house built we understand in the 1920's (with a later addition) in a cottage style.

The property has recently been comprehensively refurbished to a high standard and tastefully redecorated (in 'Farrow and Ball' shades). Works have included refitting the cloakroom and 2 bathrooms, enlarging the kitchen to create an excellent Kitchen/Breakfast Room with quality units (oak carcassing and granite worktops, upgrading the electrical installation etc.). Great care has been taken to keep and enhance much of the character of the property whilst providing modern amenities.

A particular feature of Thyme Cottage is its setting with delightful secluded gardens extending to about 0.4 acres and superb views across surrounding countryside.

Whilst quietly tucked away the property is within easy access of village amenities and just 1.5 miles or so from the Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis. There is a main line railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line) at Axminster some 5 miles inland.

Uplyme is a popular East Devon village with a thriving local community and a good range of facilities including a post office and general store at the petrol station, village hall, excellent primary school, public house, parish church, tennis courts, cricket and football clubs etc. More extensive facilities are available in Lyme Regis including a sandy beach, centuries old Cobb Harbour and golf course.
