RECENTLY TASTEFULLY REFURBISHED
A SPACIOUS FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT FORMING PART OF A COUNTRY HOUSE CONVERSION IN A DELIGHTFUL RURAL AREA

Until the mid 1980's St. Mary's was the home of High Wych School. The school was originally established in Lyme Regis and then moved to this site in 1953.

It is believed that the existing buildings were constructed on the site of an ancient monastic centre called St. Mary's reputedly a small outpost of Glastonbury. We understand that some of the original walls and garden terraces still remain,

Situated equidistant between the coast at Lyme Regis and the inland market town of Axminster (with a mainline railway station Exeter to Waterloo), the properties are approached by a long and imposing tree-lined drive of nearly 3/4 mile, through coniferous and deciduous woodland, with rhododendrons.

The Nature Reserve and woodlands which surround St. Mary's are extensive and are, we understand, held on a lease by the Forestry Commission. This is very much an unspoilt rural area, quiet and away from busy roads but not isolated.

From the buildings an imaginative scheme of conversion and redevelopment was completed in 1987 including the main house (a substantial and attractive three storey building) which was converted to provide three self-contained apartments.

Due to the split level nature of this site, the first floor flat (Flat 2) is approached from the rear at ground floor level. Access to the ground floor flat is from the front of the building.

We understand the property was originally built in 1920 of solid stone and flint wall, beneath a tiled roof.

The first floor flat features a good sized Living Room with Beer stone fireplace, enjoying delightful views over woodland from a southerly aspect.

Since acquiring the property the current owners have undertaken comprehensive refurbishment including acoustic insulation, new kitchen and bathroom, replacement uPVC double glazed windows to the Living Room and Bedroom 1 (the remainder had already been replaced) and tasteful redecoration. Particularly attractive is the garden which has been landscaped and planted in a cottage style with flowers and shrubs, vegetable garden and fruit trees and an excellent timber summerhouse.

Tenure And Maintenance - The flat is held on the remainder of the 999 year lease. The freehold interest has been conveyed to a management company, the directors of which are the three flat owners. Nominal ground rent and maintenance of the structure and cost of insurance for the structure is borne by the three flat owners. We understand from the vendors that the 2018 maintenance charge is £83.33 per month to include buildings insurance.
St. Mary's is also responsible for contributing 1/8th of the upkeep of the private roadway. Payable when required.
Note: Holiday letting is not permitted and regretfully pets are not allowed.
