Full description


As the name suggests Church Cliff Flats are on the top of Church Cliff, just to the east of the Parish Church, and as a result must occupy one of the most spectacular sites on the south coast of England.

The views from Flat 4 and its garden are genuinely spectacular-taking in the beautiful Jurassic Coastline including Stonebarrow, Golden Cap, Portland Bill and of course a great expanse of Lyme Bay's sea.

Flat 4 is on the first floor (together with an attic conversion) of a substantial 2-story property converted into 4 flats many years ago. We understand the building was originally the Church of England School built in 1840.

Recently the area around the property has been stabilised by a £19 million coastal protection scheme ensuring the preservation of homes and infrastructure in the East Cliff area together with an impressive cliffside footpath.

As a result of the scheme the garden to Flat 4 has been landscaped to include sitting areas and vegetable beds, decking etc.-all taking in the views.

The property is quietly tucked away from busy roads and traffic close to the Parish Church and the seafront.

It is approached via a footpath at the side of the churchyard, passing the headstone of the famous paleontologist Mary Anning.

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.

Flat 4 is on the first floor and is approached either by an external staircase from the garden on the seaward side or the internal staircase on the western side of the building (we understand Flat 4 owns the staircase and Flat 3 has a right of access over it).


Approached via the main staircase:- glazed entrance door at first floor level to the Entrance Lobby with built-in airing cupboard housing the insulated hot water cylinder.

SITTING ROOM 18'4 x 13' (5.59m x 3.96m)
