Full description


The Chalet is a timber built detached bungalow in an attractive village location with country views.

Whilst the property offers the principal modern amenities, including gas central heating, it would now benefit from general refurbishment. The exterior was re-clad in timber shiplap about 15 years ago.

In our opinion the property can be a comfortable home, holiday retreat or a purchaser may look to redevelop the site (subject to Local Authority consent).

It is situated in a picturesque lane close to the centre of the village and within a 5 minute walk of unspoilt countryside with many nearby footpaths and quiet country lanes to enjoy.

The village amenities in Uplyme are unusually comprehensive with an excellent village hall, highly regarded primary school, post office and general stores at the petrol station, pub, parish church and many local organisations - a thriving local community.

The sea at Lyme Regis is only about 2 miles away and inland at Axminster is a mainline railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line).

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, century's 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.
