Full description

Situated in a breathtaking position at the end of the original old Roman road high up on the western side of the village. This substantial detached property has outstanding panoramic sea views stretching from Lyme Regis to the west and over to Golden Cap and Portland to the east.
Cliff House was originally built in the 70s and constructed on a solid raft foundation to ensure its stability and longevity on the hillside.
This substantial detached property has been designed to take full advantage of the open coastal vista to the south, with all the principal rooms having lovely sea views. The large plot of approximately 0.66 of an acre stretches out to the rear and to both sides with several useful outbuildings.
Upon entering via a wide open porchway the entrance leads into a spacious hall with stairs descending to the bedrooms. On this level there is a generous triple aspect Living Room which has large picture windows affording stunning coastal, sea & inland views. A cosy centralised woodburner provides a focal point for dark winter evenings.

On the Lower Floor there are all the bedroom suites radiating from a central hallway. Three very large double bedrooms all with en suites, sea views and private external french doors. A fourth smaller double room with family bathroom opposite.  The current owners enjoy a thriving bed and breakfast business holiday letting two/three of the bedrooms which are large enough to accommodate a breakfast table and sofas.

Beyond the house there is a sizeable area for parking and turning with a detached garage. A five bar gate leads into the garden. Elevated summerhouse with decking. Detached studio. Small timber barn. A long wide expanse of cut grass takes the eye seawards leading eventually to the undercliff on the periphery which the owners have teased into a gentle circular track down to a small level seating area.
