A fabulous `upside-down` house with the most fantastic sea, coast and country views situated in the ever sought after Jurassic coastal village of Charmouth. The detached house is set at the end of a no-through road, along a short private driveway. The beautiful accommodation is set over three levels with the lower level providing two guest double bedrooms, hallway, large shower room, utility room and access to the garage. A half flight of stairs leads to the stunning master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and French doors to the garden as well as the large en-suite bathroom and built-in storage. Another half flight leads to the bright living room with windows to the fabulous views and doors to the large balcony, where there is ample room for entertaining. Also on this level and enjoying the same views, is the very attractive kitchen with Aga. Steps lead down from here to a snug/study area which in turn leads to a fabulous dining room with lantern window and doors to the garden. The back garden enjoys a good deal of privacy and seclusion. At the back of the garden is a large timber chalet, with cloakroom and kitchenette, which provides spacious over-flow accommodation or hobby space. This also offers the potential to generate an income through holiday letting. A wrought iron staircase from the garden leads up to the balcony.

Famous for fossil hunting and forming part of the Jurassic Coast, Charmouth is situated between Lyme Regis and Bridport in West Dorset. The village has a good range of pubs, small shops and cafes and remains a popular tourist destination as well as a desirable place to live. Charmouth has a long beach and gently shelving waters which make it ideal for swimming. The village is very pretty with a wide range of property styles, many of them period houses and cottages. The coastal path runs through the village providing good walking with stunning scenery. There is a regular bus service which serves the coastal towns as well as providing services to Axminster, where there are regular rail services to Waterloo and Exeter. The nearest secondary school is the highly regarding Woodroffe School at Lyme Regis in whose catchment area, Charmouth lies. A little further afield (about 12 miles) is the Colyton Grammar School, which consistently appears in the top ten Grammar schools in the country.
