Full description


Shores is a good quality detached bungalow probably built around 1970 to traditional specifications. It has subsequently been well cared for and much improved by creation of 3 first floor rooms.

It is situated in a sought after, quiet, residential cul de sac on the western side of Lyme Regis about 1/2 mile from the town centre and seafront. The bungalow is set well back from the road with most attractive mature gardens.

A particular feature is the superb outlook over the sea and West Dorset coastline and country views to the rear.

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.
