Full description


A first floor apartment in a Grade II Listed Georgian house which was converted into seven apartments when the building was completely renovated. The flats are arranged on four floors with No. 6 being fully self contained on the first floor and featuring superb views over Lyme Bay and the West Dorset Coastline around to Portland in the distance.

The property is ideally suited as a permanent home or as a holiday retreat. Regrettably, the lease does not allow holiday letting.

Portland Lodge is an imposing detached Georgian house in an elevated location on the favoured western side of the town, in an established residential area about 1/2 mile from the town centre and seafront.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster (6 miles inland). In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset ‘Jurassic Coast’ awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.
