Full description


This individual detached house was built in the 1970's of cavity wall construction, part faced in reconstituted stone, render and tile hanging beneath a tiled roof.

The split level design of the house has enabled the principal rooms to take full advantage of the superb views of the sea, West Dorset coastline and inland across unspoilt countryside.

No.16 enjoys a mature setting in Somers Fields which has long been regarded as one of the town's most highly sought after residential areas. It is situated on the western side of Lyme Regis about 3/4 mile from the town centre and seafront.

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.
