THE PROPERTY

Flat 1, Waterside is a very spacious and well presented self contained character ground floor apartment located in a superb, tucked away position near the River Lym and therefore close to riverside walks to Lyme Regis. Waterside is believed to date back to the 1600's, when it was built as the residence for the overseer of all eight cloth mills along the River Lym, and therefore has a rich and interesting history with some notable visitors and residents over the years including Judge Jefferies, who is thought to have stayed at the property in the 1600, and, more recently, Colonel P.H Fawcett (the notable explorer and mapmaker) is known to have lived at Waterside in 1911. The building has been converted into 7 unique apartments although the property still benefits from the many historic features with the former mansion house still in residence.

The apartment occupies a very attractive setting with a sunny south west aspect overlooking the communal gardens and fields and woodland beyond. It has been under the current family ownership since 2004 and a whole number of recent improvements have been carried out. There is a well fitted kitchen with a range of appliances, modern bathroom with a shower and double glazed windows. The property includes a wealth of character features typical of it's period including painted wood panelling, fireplace, panelled doors, storage cupboards, exposed beams and deep skirting boards.

The well presented and sizable self contained accommodation extends to: entrance porch, large living room, sun lounge/garden room, kitchen/dining room, inner hall, two double bedrooms and bathroom. External doors lead to a private stone terrace.

OUTSIDE

Flat 1 benefits from an allocated parking space along with visitor's parking.

The apartment also has the benefit of it's own adjoining stone terrace to enjoy the lovely south westerly views in addition to the use of the attractive communal gardens that are located to the front and side of Waterside and again, enjoying the sunny aspect. There is a seating area, an established lawn and well stocked flower and shrub borders.
