St Michael's Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, Lyme Regis (0.4mi.)
The Woodroffe School (0.5mi.)
Mrs Ethelston's CofE Primary Academy (1.0mi.)
An impressive and extremely versatile detached family home, quietly positioned within walking distance to the coastal town of Lyme Regis, with stunning countryside views and glimpses of the sea
Architect designed and built in 2007 of brick elevations under a slate roof, with a later oak framed extension, Amity sits in a secluded and quiet position in this very sought after seaside town.
The property itself boasts great space and versatility following the conversion of a double garage in 2014 into a two storey annexe/bedroom suite, together with a most attractive oak framed extension that seamlessly connects it to the main house. The current owners have successfully holiday let the annexe, and indeed the whole house, through Airbnb in recent years thus providing a great additional income stream if desired. Its versatility may also be useful for those who work from home, or to those exploring the possibility of multi-generational living.
The layout has been expertly designed to offer light and
well- proportioned rooms that are presented to a very high standard throughout. On the ground floor both the kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room face west, and benefit from French doors that open onto a raised decked terrace leading to the garden, with distant sea views as well as stunning views across the valley and to the countryside beyond. A great place to enjoy al fresco dining and to watch the sunset of an evening. The addition of the family room further enhances the already spacious ground floor accommodation and would suit a variety of purposes, perhaps as a formal dining area or hobby/music room. An interconnecting door in turn leads into the annexe/fifth bedroom suite, offering the flexibility to be incorporated into the main house or locked if used independently gaining access through French doors to the front.
Stairs from the hall lead to an L shaped galleried landing area, with the master en suite bedroom, one double bedroom and large single bedroom situated at the rear enjoying sea and countryside views. A further double bedroom and the family bathroom are situated to the front of the property.
The annexe is a welcoming and characterful double height room, offering a generous sitting area and full bathroom at ground floor level with French doors leading outside. An exposed solid oak framed mezzanine platform /bedroom 5 enjoys lovely countryside views and together with glass balustrade makes for a very light and bright social space
The property is approached via a private lane leading to 2 other houses. A private driveway in turn leads to Amity offering parking for several cars, with a carport at the very end adjoining the house. There is an attractive low maintenance gravelled garden to the front, with a variety of tropical plants arranged in raised beds. To the rear of the house a delightful full width raised decked terrace affording a great deal of privacy overlooks the garden, with glorious sea views and views across the valley and countryside beyond. Furthermore, the garden is mainly laid to level lawn, with a variety of mature shrubs, hedges and trees, together with a thriving apple orchard, shed and summerhouse.
