A STUNNING CONTEMPORARY APARTMENT IN AN ELEGANT GEORGIAN HOUSE CONVERSION WITH AN AWARD WINNING GARDEN.


St. Michaels House is a beautifully restored Georgian House Converted to 8 apartments and The Garden Flat was the last to be completed (about 2012).

The project has transformed a lower ground floor area with an exceptional contemporary apartment featuring a generous open plan living space approached via a glass and stainless steel staircase with a French door opening directly into the rear courtyard. This is an excellent quality conversion which is equally well suited as a second home, permanent residence or a potential holiday let.

Of particular note is the outside space that is for the exclusive use of this flat-a paved courtyard with Persian style pagoda leading into a secluded mature garden and finally, tucked away is a secret garden with a chalet overlooking the sea and Cobb Harbour.

The Garden Flat is quietly situated at the rear of St Michaels House but is only a short walk from the town centre.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre, cinema and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset 'Jurassic Coast' awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
