Full description


The Leas is a substantial detached family house believed to have been built in the 1930's to traditional specifications. Whilst the property offers goodsized 4-5 bedroomed accommodation with modern amenities (including uPVC double glazing to most windows and gas central heating) there remains a lot of potential to extend/further improve.

The house occupies a generous south facing plot in a private road of just 5 detached properties. It is located off Higher Sea Lane in a much sought after residential area on the western side of Charmouth about 1/3 mile from the shops and village facilities. Higher Sea Lane is within easy access of the beach via a public footpath about 200 metres from The Leas.

The picturesque village of Charmouth features unspoilt coastal scenery (much of the coastal area belongs to the National Trust) and extensive beaches. There is a selection of local shops, doctors practice, library, primary school, pubs, church etc. Lyme Regis is only about 2 1/2 miles to the west and Bridport about 6 miles eastwards.

The coastline here forms part of a World Heritage Site (The Jurassic Coast).
