Full description


Monks Way is a detached split level 1970s property which has just undergone a complete transformation. With great flair and imagination the vendors have spent 12 months creating a fabulous seaside home which really is unique. Their design has many influences (contemporary, vintage, industrial) and the end result is beautifully crafted yet decidedly quirky and fitted out to a very high standard.

The property is quietly tucked away off picturesque Sherborne Lane in the heart of 'Old Lyme'.

It is rare to find a contemporary property in a Conservation Area so close to amenities - just a short walk to the main shopping area and seafront yet well away from busy main roads. Going inland, there is a delightful riverside walk to the Devon Village of Uplyme.

Lyme Regis is an historic 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.

Monks Way is approached off Sherborne Lane (a pretty pedestrian lane) via a substantial garden door. In the lane is an entry phone which connects with the Reception Hall.

The sunny south facing garden has been creatively landscaped to provide interest and contrast and to ensure ease of maintenance. There are gravelled areas, beds in white pebbles and bark, a palm tree, 2 decking areas, in substantial reclaimed timber, raised lavender bed, galvanized steed balustrading and attractive 'vintage' outside lights, built in store. There are paved pathways all around the bungalow leading on the upper side (with raised bed adjacent) to the main entrance door and continuing to the rear where there is a paved patio with a garden tap.

Note: There is a possibility of negotiating a pedestrian right of way from the rear to Hill Road (close to one of the main car parks) via Hill Mead.
