  • Bedrooms: 3
Outstanding contemporary detached house with double garage, external studio/home office, beautiful gardens and impressive views of the sea.

The property lies in an elevated position in the rolling Dorset countryside above the village of Charmouth, a short drive to the beach and with far-reaching views over the fields towards Lyme Bay. Lissadell was originally built in the 1970s but in recent years has been the subject of extensive remodelling and enlargement to create a stylish and very modern home. In 2011 a substantial and contemporary extension was added with vaulted ceilings and large picture windows, more recently a complete remodelling of the interior has created a large, open, light space combining kitchen, dining and living areas refitted to the highest standards.

The property is arranged with a central hallway off which is a shower room, cloakroom, utility room (with double stainless steel sink and space for washing machine), and two double bedrooms. The other side of the hallway opens into the newly created kitchen/dining/living area with sliding patio doors and picture windows running along one side of the room taking in the panoramic views. The kitchen area has a large island unit with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted cupboards and drawer units- all with Minerva worktops. Integrated appliances include dishwasher, eye level electric oven plus combination microwave oven, and a venting induction hob. There is a spacious seating area to the front with views of the sea and also a TV area to one side, while to the rear is a separate dining area overlooking the walled rear gardens. The kitchen area has access to the back garden via double glazed French windows and adjacent to this is another door leading to a pantry. To the far side of the kitchen there is a door leading to an inner lobby, off which is a vaulted sitting room with double doors to the front aspect and, to the rear of the lobby, the principal bedroom with two sets of fitted wardrobes. Off the lobby is the main fully tiled bathroom with bath and shower. The entire property is beautifully presented, the floors are a mix of ceramic tiles, carpeted bedrooms and Karndean flooring in the new living/kitchen area. All the windows are aluminium double glazed and of the highest quality. The property benefits from gas central heating and insulation properties to give it an EPC rating of C.

To the front of the property is a gated vehicular access leading to the driveway. To the left of the entrance gate there is a substantial double garage (presently being used as a workshop) - this is equipped with light, power and drainage and has been constructed to a standard commensurate for living accommodation should this be desired (subject to the necessary planning consents). At the top of the concrete driveway is an extensive area of gravel providing parking and turning for several cars. To one side of this area and adjacent to the house is a recently constructed, fully insulated, oak frame studio/home office with cart lodge attached. The studio would make an ideal work/office space - power, light and TV connections are all in place. Across the entire front of the property is a south facing paved terrace with several seating areas and panoramic views of the sea. The gardens to the front are for the most part laid to lawn with herbaceous and shrub borders enclosed by mature hedging. To one side of the drive, below the studio is an attractive wildlife pond with seating above. The gardens to the rear of the property are a particular feature - the current owner of the property has had the gardens completely restored and landscaped to make the most of the unique setting of this property below the Manor House. The old walls are well maintained and the water trough is now a feature pond, there is a substantial area of level lawn, a pergola, greenhouse and numerous paved seating areas.
