OCCUPYING ON OF THE FINEST SITES IN LYME REGIS

LOT 2: APPROX 10.5 ACRES LAND
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.
LOT 1: THE BUNGALOW - SEE SEPARATE LISTING
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.
The Land - 3 pasture meadows which for some time have been used for grazing sheep and horses. We understand that each field has a water supply.
The Little Field and The Long Field are fairly level (unusual for Lyme Regis) and The Large Field slopes down the valley side to the north.
There is a Public Footpath running through the 2 small fields from Barbers Lane up to Shire Lane.
Shire Lane is a private road which is also designated as a public footpath.
Schedule - (Areas taken from 1:2,500 O.S. extract)
2.1 The Little Field O.S. No. 8360 which extends to 1.52 acres (.615 hectares)
2.2 The Long Field O.S. No. 7874 2.21 acres (.894 hectares)
2.3 The Large Field O.S. No. 8877 6.78 acres (2.744 hectares)
Total: 10.51 acres (4.25 hectares)
Within The Little Field is a Static Caravan. The Caravan has the benefit of a ‘Certificate of Lawfulness’ dated the 2nd January 2018. In effect we understand this means that there is a potential to replace exiting with some kind of “George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces” type structure provided it meets with the definition of a mobile home and is used in conjunction with the main residence (i.e. with the present consent commercial holiday letting would not comply). The Caravan has the benefit of utility connections from the existing bungalow - water, electricity and septic tank drainage.
