A very attractive and imposing, individual detached house, set in large private gardens, enjoying beautiful sea views along the Jurassic Coast, in a highly sought after address.


Seathrift is a very attractive and imposing individual detached house set in large private gardens and enjoying beautiful sea views along the Jurassic Coast, occupying a peaceful location in a private road in the highly sought after historic town of Lyme Regis.

The property was built in circa 1946 in the exclusive, private road of Greenway, which comprises just five individual properties. It has been under the current family ownership since 1953.

The house faces southeast to the front, enjoying wonderful views over Lyme Regis and along the Jurassic Coast, taking in Golden Cap and Portland beyond. There is a host of character features, typical of its age and type, including high ceilings, cornices and fireplaces, plus the original servant bells. There is gas-fired central heating and replacement uPVC double glazed windows/doors.

The house is fairly original and would benefit from general updating with exciting potential to create a wonderful home.

The generous accommodation extends to just under 2,000sqft, as follows:

Ground Floor Sunroom, reception hall cloakroom, living room, dining room, kitchen/pantry, rear lobby, utility area, study/bedroom 5.

First Floor Landing, principal bedroom with access to large balcony, second bedroom with access to large balcony, two further bedrooms, two bathrooms, separate WC.


The house stands in extensive gardens and grounds of about 1/2 acre. It is set well back and approached over a long driveway leading to a turning and parking area plus timber garage.

There are extensive front and rear well established served gardens, principally down to lawn to the front and rear with shrub borders, mature trees. At the far end is a large vegetable plot with apple orchard to the side.


Seathrift, as with the neighbouring properties, is subject to covenants within the title. The vendors of Seathrift have retained a strip of land (approx. 1 meter) along the boundary to the west and north of the property to maintain similar covenants, land over which the new owners and their successors will exclusively benefit from right of way.


Seathrift enjoys a peaceful setting within the private road of Greenway, off Somers Road, on the west side of Lyme Regis town. Lyme Regis is a hugely popular and historic coastal town on the beautiful Jurassic Coast and famous for its iconic Cobb. It is a very pretty town and offers excellent shopping, business and leisure facilities together with primary and secondary schools. The immediate area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and from the property there is easy access to countryside and the South West Coast Path. The market town of Axminster is very nearby with mainline rail services to London Waterloo/Exeter
