A DETACHED FORMER COACH HOUSE CONVERTED TO A MOST ATTRACTIVE COTTAGE
IN THE GROUNDS OF AN ELEGANT EDWARDIAN PROPERTY

'Glen Andred' is one of Lyme's impressive period properties, built as a private residence in the early 1900's. It was comprehensively restored in the late 1980's when the main building was converted to five luxury apartments, and the former Coach House became a pretty cottage. This was subsequently sympathetically extended to provide a master bedroom with ensuite and it has been maintained to a high standard.

The external elevations are in mellow brick with rendered upper elevations beneath a clay tiled roof. There is gas central heating and double glazing installed.

The Coach House is quietly tucked away in a secluded corner behind 'Glen Andred' with its own private garden at the rear and 2 parking spaces. There is a service charge to cover insurance, all external maintenance and communal aspects. As such the property would make an ideal 'lock up and leave' or a delightful home in a secure location. It is situated in a sought after residential area about 3/4 mile from the town centre. Just a few hundred metres below the property is the River Lym alongside which is a picturesque walk inland to Uplyme and eastwards through the historic old town to the town centre and seafront.

Lyme Regis is an historic coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and delightful 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 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.
