Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
Believed to have been built in the 1970s, this bungalow forms part of a select development towards the end of a cul-de-sac designed specifically to take full advantage of some wonderful views over Lyme Bay and the surrounding countryside. Many of the principal rooms are equipped with large picture windows organised specifically to frame the views, while the potential to expand the living accommodation in the house is clear with a large double garage below, a large roof space above and a substantial front garden, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The main living room is the showstopper. With the principal and largest window looking out across Lyme Bay towards Golden Cap and West Bay and a second window to the East looking out over the Marshwood Vale. On the East side is an open fireplace equipped with a gas fire, with an archway to one side that leads through to a formal dining room with French doors out to the garden. Beyond the dining room there is a well organised kitchen that has been fitted out in some style with appliances that include an electric oven, a gas hob with extractor fan over, a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher.

The kitchen has space for a family sized dining table and beyond the kitchen area there is a breakfast room with a set of French doors out to the terrace and garden and stairs down to the downstairs study/occasional bedroom and the integral double garage.

The principal bedroom takes in the same views as the main living room with to one end a dressing area fitted with extensive built-in wardrobes, beyond which there is an en-suite bathroom complete with a standalone shower. The two remaining bedrooms on the ground floor share a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Under the main body of the bungalow there is a study/occasional bedroom with a door to one side into the substantial double garage and to the other a cloaks/utility room. The garage is a spacious double with, in addition, a storage/workshop area to one side and is equipped with an electric remotely operated up and over door. The property is in immaculate decorative order throughout, has UPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating.

To the front of the property there is an extensive area of driveway laid to tarmac, providing turning and parking for a number of cars, with lawns either side edged by mature shrub planting. The gardens to the rear of the property are a particular feature with an extensive area of paved terrace running along the width of the house, with to one side a pergola-topped seating area ideal for entertaining during the Summer months. Steps from this area lead up to the main body of the garden that is also laid to lawn, punctuated by well-stocked herbaceous borders to the sides and a lovely meandering bed to the middle. The planting has been cleverly organised to provide shape, colour and form throughout the year while on the Northeast side of the garden there is a viewing platform which takes in the best of the views over Lyme Regis and Lyme Bay beyond - ideal for an early morning coffee or a sundowner.
