SUPERB SEA/COASTAL AND COUNTRYSIDE VIEWS
OCCUPYING ONE OF THE FINEST SITES IN LYME REGIS
LOT 1 A SPACIOUS DETACHED BUNGALOW AND OUTBUILDINGS IN 0.9 ACRES
LOT 2 APPROX 10.5 ACRES LAND

LOT 1: THE BUNGALOW

Upper Knapps has been in the same family since 1964. At that time it was a derelict farmhouse, with a range of outbuildings, occupying a spectacular site on the western outskirts of Lyme Regis. A detached bungalow was constructed in 1966/7 which was largely rebuilt in 1980 following a fire when the present property was created.

It is a spacious light and bright bungalow with cavity walls faced in natural Purbeck stone beneath a tiled roof offering 3 Bedroomed principal accommodation plus a separate annexe/flat.

The property has been well cared for (including installing uPVC double glazing) but would now benefit from general updating.

Upper Knapps enjoys a unique rural location on a plateau at the top of the Lym Valley with superb views across surrounding countryside to the sea and impressive West Dorset coastline.

The bungalow has the benefit of an extensive range of outbuildings providing stabling, workshops and storage and these would be especially useful if the purchaser also acquires the adjoining fields (Lot 2).

Note: The owner of the 2 fields to the north east of the bungalow has a right of access 25’ / 7.62m wide running along the southern boundary within the garden. This has never caused problems for the vendors but a future owner could readily screen off the access way if they wished to.

LOT 2: THE LAND

This comprises 3 pasture meadows extending in total to about 10.5 acres (approx. 4.39 hectares) and also enjoys super sea and country views.

Note: Lot 2 will be sold Subject to an Overage Clause if planning consent for development of the land is obtained. 30% of development value will be payable to the vendor.

The Devon/Dorset county boundary runs along Shire Lane and the Western boundary of Upper Knapps. Accordingly the bungalow is within Dorset and the land in Devon.

Outside - The property is approached off the private lane via double timber gates, and a tarmacadam driveway leads to the south west of the house and the main entrance door where there is also a gravelled parking/turning area around a mature ash tree. Along the western boundary is a range of Outbuildings which are primarily stone built with various forms of sheet roofing and which comprise an open fronted implements store, various stables, workshops and additional stores, and a hay barn. The main buildings are some 90’ (27.43m) in length and a maximum depth of 22’ (6.71m) added onto which is the hay barn which is about 22’ x 13’9 (6.71m x 4.19m) and part clad in corrugated iron. To the rear is also a potting shed and greenhouse.

The gardens lie primarily to the south and east of the bungalow and are laid mainly to lawn with a variety of shrubs and small trees. There is also a useful vegetable garden to the south of the outbuildings and, separately sited, is a kitchen garden which includes a polytunnel. The whole is estimated at just under 1 Acre.
