THE PROPERTY

Scatterbrook House is a stunning detached house located within the highly sought-after village of Uplyme and therefore very close to Lyme Regis, which can be reached via a pleasant riverside walk. The property is understood to date back to the 1920s but, with rendered and colour washed elevations beneath a slate roof and handsome uPVC sash-style windows to the front aspect, has the external appearance of a classically elegant Regency home. Under the current ownership, which has lasted since 2015, an all-encompassing programme of improvement and alteration has been carried out to an exacting specification, transforming this beautiful property into the stylish yet comfortable home seen today. With fantastic, far-reaching country views to the rear, a secluded, easily managed lifestyle garden and well proportioned, versatile accommodation, Scatterbrook House is ideal for a broad variety of purchasers and would make a superb permanent family residence, second home or home-and-income opportunity.

Throughout the works, high quality fixtures and fittings were chosen at every opportunity, alongside excellent modern conveniences. To list but a few of the many fantastic features now in place, the impressive specification includes; gas fired central heating with a combi boiler; uPVC part sash style sealed unit windows; white aluminium powder coated bifolding doors in the kitchen/family room; a superb, well equipped kitchen with extensive units, granite worktops, Bosch triple electric ovens, electric induction hob and Indesit integrated dishwasher; stylish bathroom fittings featuring designer mains showers and a free standing bath in the family bathroom; a handsome glass sided staircase; fitted wardrobes to two of the bedrooms, and Moduleo karndean-style flooring throughout the ground floor, bedrooms and bathroom/shower room.

Owing to the versatile ground floor layout the property offers excellent potential to create a self-contained annexe/letting wing. Bedroom 4 (which benefits from independent access, an adjoining utility room and shower room) has previously been successfully let via AirBnB. Furthermore, planning permission was passed in 2017 to further alter and extend this part of the house, allowing a new owner to enhance and enlarge the accommodation to suit their needs. Plans available on request.

Internally, the accommodation is family orientated with a comfortable, sociable emphasis. The heart of the home is undoubtedly the stunning open plan kitchen/family room which features

both bi-folding and French doors leading directly to the garden, allowing a highly desirable indoor/outdoor lifestyle. This expansive and very well appointed room offers ample space for entertaining and everyday family enjoyment alike alongside a superbly equipped fitted kitchen area. Across the reception hall is a delightful snug room which, with a feature fireplace, is a truly cosy, relaxing space in which to unwind. The ground floor also includes excellent domestic spaces including the utility room with modern fitted units and integrated Whirlpool washing machine, and an attractive fully tiled shower room as well as the fourth bedroom or study, and a very useful side porch/store. Three double bedrooms can be found on the first floor along with the very large family bathroom/shower room. Two of the bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes, and the principal bedroom enjoys a well appointed ensuite shower room. From the landing, which features a stained glass window with distant country views, there is a hatch to the large, fully boarded loft space with light.

OUTSIDE

Outdoor living at Scatterbrook House is an immense pleasure. The garden wraps around the side and rear of the property and, owing to the elevated position in which the property stands above its neighbours, enjoys an open aspect, allowing the views to be appreciated throughout the garden and ensuring seclusion as well as sun throughout the day. Having been re-designed by the current owners as part of the programme of improvements, the garden is set up to offer a wonderful lifestyle without the need for ongoing maintenance, including artificial grass, composite fences and decking with raised flower and shrub borders. A particular feature is the raised sun deck which, which LED lighting, provides an ideal setting for al fresco dining, relaxing or entertaining at any time of day. There is also a lower paved terrace with BBQ area and timber shed.

Parking is well provided for to the front where there is a large tarmac driveway offering space for a number of vehicles and useful external power points as well as pedestrian gates to both sides of the house.
