A well-positioned, substantial detached family home tucked away at the end of a cul-de-sac in the village of Uplyme within walking distance of local schools. The property layout is `upside down` with the main living areas being on the first floor from where there are lovely views.

On the approach to the property, the private driveway provides parking and turning space and leads to the garage. The main entrance opens into a hallway with cloakroom, a large bedroom with en-suite shower and a further bedroom/office with walk-in storage. Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a fabulous large landing providing an excellent space for family dining. Off the landing are two further double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, utility room and kitchen. Last but not least is a beautiful, bright living room with views to the front and doors at the rear to the south facing garden. The living room is fitted with a wood burning stove. The doors from the living room open to a level decked seating area, which is sheltered and very private providing a lovely secluded sun trap. From here the garden continues to the side where there is an expanse of lawn and a garden shed. The flower borders are well stocked with an abundance of seasonal colour. A path continues around the side leading to the back door into the house through the utility room and steps from here lead down to the front of the house. The house is modern, having been built around 20 years ago with double glazing and gas central heating.

Uplyme lies just 1.5 miles to the north west of Lyme Regis. The village has a great deal to offer including a local pub, busy village hall, petrol station, with shop and post office, playing field, tennis court, cricket and football clubs and two local schools of excellent repute; namely Mrs Ethelston`s Primary and the Woodroffe Secondary school.

The seaside resort of Lyme Regis, famed for its historic connections and the Cobb Harbour remains popular with visitors. The town retains much of its original charm and a good variety of shops restaurants and places of interest to visit. There are many events throughout the year including a good range of live music and for those who would rather be on the sea, there are sailing and gig rowing clubs. This expanse of coast line has been designated a World Heritage Site and is affectionately known as the Jurassic coast. Bus services run regularly between the local towns of Bridport and Axminster, where the station runs a mainline service to London Waterloo and Exeter. The property is very well placed for proximity to the highly regarded Woodroffe Secondary School, which has been described by Ofsted as `outstanding`, with many house hunters seeking an address within the catchment area. Alternatively, the Colyton Grammar School, which is constantly ranked as one of the best in the country is approximately 8 miles to the west.
