Full description


This must be one of the most spectacular sites in West Dorset. It is located high on the western outskirts of Lyme Regis with superb panoramic views taking in Lyme Bay, the unspoilt West Dorset coastline and across the picturesque countryside of the Lym Valley. It is quietly tucked away and approached by a private driveway in one of Lyme's most prestigious residential locations about 3/4 mile from the town centre and seafront.

The developers Country & Coast Homes ( are committed to building exceptional new build homes in beautiful locations across the South West. Each house will have the benefit of a 10 year build warranty.

Portland Heights is an extensive small development of 5 detached houses and Plot 5 probably occupies the largest plot in a secluded corner on the southern edge of the site. The houses are of highly energy efficient timber construction with a natural slate roof clad in an attractive New England style. Features include bright and spacious accommodation, underfloor heating (downstairs), woodburning stove in Living Room, extensive use of engineered oak and travertine tiling, designer kitchen with Neff appliances, 4 bedrooms (2 with ensuites and a family bathroom) and enjoying super sea and coastal views. Outside Plot 5 enjoys a good sized secluded garden with an excellent timber and glazed verandah running across almost the full width at the rear.

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.
