Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A spacious detached bungalow close to Charmouth Beach with stunning sea, coastal and country views. 3 double bedrooms. Large plot of just under 0.25 of an acre. EPC Band D.


Old Fossils is a delightful detached bungalow which is superbly located just a stone's throw from Charmouth's fabulous beach. Consequently the property enjoys glorious sea views which, twinned with a generous, level corner plot and the soothing sound of the waves, makes both indoor and outdoor living an immense pleasure. Having been under the same ownership since it was built 22 years ago, the property has been maintained to an exacting standard yet scope remains for enlargement, either by extension or converting the loft, subject to any necessary consents.

Internally the accommodation is spacious and beautifully proportioned. The front door opens into a light and welcoming entrance hall from which each of the principal rooms can be reached including three sizeable double bedrooms, one with an ensuite shower room, and the family bathroom. Arguably the centrepiece of the property, the elegant and expansive open-plan reception room features clear areas for dining and sitting and is the perfect place to enjoy the views from indoors, next to the charming gas fire place. Enjoying a fantastic outlook towards Stonebarrow and the countryside surrounding Charmouth, the kitchen is fitted with traditional farmhouse-style units with spaces for the usual appliances and an integrated oven and hob, and is serviced by a useful, adjoining utility room with plumbing for laundry facilities.


Owing to its corner position, Old Fossils benefits from a generous plot amounting to just under a quarter of an acre, offering a wonderful outdoor lifestyle. With the glorious beach and sea as a backdrop, excuses for spending time out of doors are abundant, particularly on the large sun terrace from which sliding glass doors lead directly to the sitting room; al fresco dining and entertaining is a joy. Those with green fingers will recognise an opportunity for further landscaping if desired, aided by the useful potting shed. To the front of the property is a sweeping brick paved driveway offering parking for a number of vehicles and giving access to the up-and-over door of the single garage.


The property enjoys an enviable position just a stone's throw from Charmouth's unspoilt, fossil rich beach which forms part of Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site, and within an easy, level walk to Charmouth Primary School and the village centre. Charmouth's amenities include a good range of shops, two pubs and a church. Woodroffe School in Lyme Regis and Colyton Grammar (accessible by school bus) are both nearby. Lyme Regis and Bridport are within easy reach, offering unique shopping, leisure and cultural experiences. Walking opportunities are abundant including the wonderful South West Coast path.
