FOR REFURBISHMENT
A GENEROUSLY PROPORTIONED WING OF AN IMPRESSIVE COUNTRY HOUSE IN A LOVELY RURAL SETTING

Woodhouse is a substantial Victorian House (1879) - a gentleman's residence for the Prescott family until 1983. It is now being subdivided into 3 spacious family homes.

Middlebrook House is the centre house (part of the original property) and features one of the main reception rooms.

The property is being offered for sale with services laid on (water and electricity and there is already a private treatment plant for drainage).

The purchasers will be acquiring a large period house which can be refurbished and fitted out to their own taste (subject to Local Authority consent). It is Grade II Listed.

The principal elevations are faced in dressed stone up to first floor level with tile hanging above and decorative Stucco panels.

Woodhouse enjoys a parkland setting amidst the beautiful unspoilt countryside of the Lym Valley. It is approached via a long tarmacadam roadway off the B3165 Lyme Road and then through substantial wrought iron gates on stone pillars with secure entry system. On the upper side of the house there is vehicular access to Woodhouse Fields above which is the Pinetum (a mature woodland managed by the Woodland Trust).

In the vicinity are lovely country walks and bridleways.
In the village of Uplyme (about 3/4 mile away) is a good range of facilities including village stores and post office at the petrol station, excellent village hall, highly regarded primary school, pub, parish church, cricket and football clubs and a thriving community spirit.

The coast at Lyme Regis is only 2 miles or so and Axminster (4 miles approx.).

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centurys 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.
