Full description


This good quality detached bungalow was built in the early 1980's to traditional specifications with cavity walls part faced in natural stone.

It has just been comprehensively modernised and refurbished and is now in first class order throughout. The excellent improvements have included a newly fitted kitchen and utility, refitted bathroom and ensuite shower room, new floor coverings throughout and complete redecoration. In addition the garden has been much improved with landscaping and replanting.

Ethelstons Close is a small cul de sac of 8 bungalows situated in the centre of the picturesque village of Uplyme which is about 1 1/2 miles from the coast at Lyme Regis and 5 miles inland is the market town of Axminster (with main line railway station).

In Uplyme is a post office and general store at the petrol station, pub, excellent village hall, primary school and Parish church. There is a strong community spirit with lots going on (including cricket and football clubs, tennis court etc).

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 (5 miles inland from Uplyme). 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.
