Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Handsome three-bedroom village house with a studio/garage and with wonderful sea views over Lyme Bay.

Wayside is believed to have been built in the 1930s and was designed specifically to take advantage of its elevated position, enjoying some wonderful far-reaching views over Lyme Bay. In addition to the house, at the top of the garden there is a studio/garage that, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, could be used as additional accommodation or perhaps a home office.

To the side of the house an entrance hall with useful storage cupboard flows through to the sitting room. To one end of the room there is a fireplace (not in use) which provides a focal point for the sitting area beyond which double doors lead out into the conservatory. The conservatory is undoubtedly the hub of the house during the daylight hours as it takes in the best of the views over the surrounding countryside, down to the beach and ultimately the sea. Behind the sitting room a door leads through to the back lobby, off which there is a cloakroom and a kitchen. The kitchen stretches along the rear of the property with a dining area with space for a substantial dining table to one end and a fully fitted kitchen to the other. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with built-in appliances include a microwave, an electric oven, a ceramic hob, fridge, a freezer, and a dishwasher. There is also space for a wine fridge. Beyond the kitchen there is a utility room that has additional units and cupboards with plumbing for a washing machine and, to one side, a door out the back garden.

Upstairs there are three good bedrooms the principal of which has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath, with two remaining bedrooms sharing a family bathroom with an electric shower over the bath. The property has propane gas fired central heating (equipped with contemporary boiler) and UPVC double glazing.

To the front of the property there is offstreet parking for at least two cars with the whole area laid to block paving, with steps to one side that lead up to the front door. The gardens are terraced with a series of areas laid to lawn or paving edged by mature shrub planting, designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the year. The studio lies to the top of the plot with a further paved terrace in front which takes in the best of the views. Behind the studio there is a garage which is unusually long with a parking space in front. It is suggested that, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents, the studio and garage could be developed further. Vehicular access is to the side of the house along a private road over which there is a right of access.
