Full description


Charton Rise is a beautifully presented period house set in a peaceful countryside location. It probably dates back to the 1700's.

In recent years the property has been the subject of a major refurbishment project under the strict supervision of the co-owner (an interior designer). Great care has been taken to provide quality contemporary facilities whilst retaining the original character features and the result has been to create a delightful family home. The extensive 5 bedroomed accommodation offers flexible space including a ground floor guest suite (ideal for b&b accommodation).

The location really is excellent. The house is situated at the end of a private lane which makes way to the unspoilt East Devon countryside with the coast also close by. As well as views towards the sea, the property also has superb aspects of the surrounding farmland and woodland beyond.

A particular feature of the property is its attractive mature gardens which measure approximately 0.25 acres. There is a natural stone outbuilding that has previously had outline planning permission (now expired) to be converted into ancillary accommodation or a separate holiday let. This can be found on East Devon District Councils planning portal using reference number: 12/2145/VAR. The owners have also designed and constructed 2 stunning tree houses.

Charton is a tiny community on the south (seaward) side of the Lyme Regis to Exeter Road. In total there are 4 houses and a farm quietly tucked away from traffic in a delightful rural setting about 0.5 miles from the sea. It is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The access lane to Charton terminates just past Charton Rise and then becomes a bridleway to Rousdon Estate to the west.

Lyme Regis and Uplyme are approximately 2.5 miles to the east. In Lyme there are a variety of excellent pubs, restaurants and shops as well as the highly regarded Woodroffe Secondary School. Also close by is Mrs Ethelstons Primary School in Uplyme.

Inland about 6 miles there is also the market town of Axminster with a main line railway station (Waterloo approx. 3 hours).

Please note: The property is currently successfully holiday let via Lyme Bay Holidays with commitments until September 2017. Completion can only take place after all existing bookings have been honoured.
