Full description


A substantial terraced house believed to be of cavity wall construction with rendered
elevations and a slate roof. Originally a Local Authority house but now privately owned and subsequently improved by a loft conversion providing a 4th bedroom and study area on the second floor. The rear garden has been landscaped to provide a lawn and decking areas.

The house has been well cared for with recent improvements, including refitting the kitchen and bathroom.

Kingsway is an established residential area to the east of the town centre and seafront. Close by is the primary school, playing fields and general store/off license. There is a regular bus service to the centre. The property is just a short distance from the picturesque walk through the old town (Mill Green and Coombe Street) to the shops and Marine Parade. Number 43 has the benefit of an attractive open aspect at the front overlooking the Woodland Trust at Slopes Farm. There are views over the town to the sea from upstairs.

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.

Please note:
As this is an ex Local Authority house it is subject to a Housing Act condition that it is to be sold to applicants living and working in the locality. However, other cases will be considered on their merits.
