Full description


Windrush is believed to have been built in 1922 to a traditional specification using externally rendered cavity walls which sit beneath a tiled roof.

The house has been designed with an ‘Arts and Crafts’ influence in mind and throughout the property there are a host of character features which include the charming wooden framed leaded light windows, an ornate glazed/timber doorway with brickwork surround and the impressive bay window to the northerly elevation.

Under its current ownership the property has been well cared for however, it would now benefit from some internal redecoration. There is also added potential to convert the loft space into an impressive master suite with fantastic sea and coastal views and an ensuite (STPP).

Windrush is situated in a much sought-after elevated position just a short walk to the town centre and seafront. The house enjoys excellent sea, coast and country views with Portland visible on a clear day.

In the late 1980’s the vendors replaced a pre-fabricated outbuilding with a good-sized detached garage that was meticulously designed in order to ensure that it was as close in appearance to the original property as possible with blockwork elevations that are externally rendered beneath a tiled roof. Not only did this result in the creation of an extremely versatile space, the repositioning of the building has also meant that there is a good-sized off-road parking area for several cars.

Whilst the property has been enjoyed as a main residence for many years now, there may also be added potential to provide a useful income from holiday or long-term lettings.

Hill Rise Road is a popular residential area set back from busy main roads and comprises a selection of modern and character properties situated just some 500 yards from the town centre. Close by there are main route and shuttle bus services and the highly regarded Woodroffe Secondary School is just a short walk away.

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.
