Situation And Amenities - Maroc House is situated close to the heart of the quaint and quirky Lyme Regis with its iconic Cobb wall and bustling town. Lyme is part of the stunning Jurassic Coast. The area has also been the inspiration for many famed novelists and playwrights, with John Fowles and Ann Jellicoe, to name but a few. The town has a thriving heart offering convenience and bespoke shopping of a surprising variety for a town of its size, as well as a number of renowned popular restaurants and hotels. The town's day to day amenities include banks, a health centre, churches, well regarded primary and secondary schooling, library, museum, a charming independent theatre and a local cinema. There are a variety of excellent beaches to cater for all tastes throughout the region whilst on your doorstep Lyme's beach and Cobb are a short stroll away for a spot of bathing, fishing or rock pooling. The area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent walking and riding out opportunities. Maroc House is a convenient 6 miles away from the mainline station at Axminster with services to London Waterloo, making the area an ideal weekend or holiday retreat with excellent road and rail access further westwards into Devon and Cornwall.

Description - Maroc House is an imposing detached home set in an elevated position with simply stunning 180 views of Lyme Bay, yet only a few minutes walk from the heart of the town. Views can be enjoyed not only from the south facing private terrace extending the width of the property but also internally from all three floors. The property offers over 3,000sqft of accommodation and a automated watering system. The large entrance hall gives access to a spacious sitting room with dual aspect via double doors to allow you to enjoy the ocean views and the garden. There is a feature fireplace and wood burner, making it a cosy retreat during the winter months. Also accessed from the entrance hall is the dining/family room, again with double doors giving you that beautiful view over the coast line. This room is semi open plan through to the fully fitted kitchen, including double oven and wine cooler, and utility room, both of which have access to the garden. The room also allows access to another small room(boot room) from which the double garage maybe entered and where there is a staircase leading to an area, currently, used as an office but which has possibilities to be converted into a self contained annexe(STRC). On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, including the master and guest bedrooms, both having ensuite facilities, and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are 2 further double bedrooms and a cloakroom. All floors avail themselves of the delightful 180 views over the spectacular Jurassic Coast Line.

Outside - Maroc House is approached by the road via a shared driveway which sweeps up towards the front of the property where there is parking for a number of vehicles. The informal garden and the front south facing private sun terrace, provide an excellent spot to take in the ocean views and watch both the sunrise and sunset. The principal garden lies to the rear of the house and has been thoughtfully landscaped to make as low maintenance as possible with secluded seating/ sunbathing areas over the terraces, again many stunning views can be enjoyed. From the top of the garden there is a panoramic view across Lyme Bay, which really has to be seen to be appreciated!
