A unique detached 4 bed property in an exceptional position with panoramic sea and country views, a large garden and an income

This is a uniquely positioned four-bedroom family sized property, with wonderful elevated views over Lyme Bay and the surrounding countryside, and with flexible accommodation that has been run in recent years as a successful bed and breakfast.

The property can be split into three distinctly different areas. On the West side of the property there are two bedrooms each with an en-suite shower room that can be operated from the main body of the property and have been used over the years as successful bed & breakfast. On the East side of the property, to the front of the house, there is an attractive and generously proportioned sitting room that faces South and has a series of picture windows that look out over the gardens towards the sea and the focal point of a fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove. To the rear of the property there is a kitchen that is equipped with a range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with an island unit, off which there is a substantial utility room that has plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer. There are two further bedrooms on the ground floor the principal of which enjoys a view out to the South, with both bedrooms sharing a family bathroom. To the centre of the property there is a good sized central lobby that has been used as a formal dining room as has the conservatory which lies to the rear of the property and which has double doors out onto the gardens behind. The third area lies on the first floor which is known as 'the Turret'. The Turret is an attractive and unique space, used as an additional sitting room opening onto a large balcony on all four sides that allows 360' panoramic views to be enjoyed to the South from Portland to South Devon and to the North into the Bride Valley.

The property sits within a generous and well-tended plot. The approach to the property is via a large arched driveway with ample space for parking of up to four vehicles. A particularly large garage sits on the eastern side of the plot, measuring 10 metres in length, with an up-and-over door and power and light. From the rear of the garage, a door leads to a further workshop space which is well equipped with storage and work space.

From the front driveway, a path leads to an area which separated from the garden via a hedge-line and houses several fruit trees and raised beds, making an ideal vegetable garden. The path continues to the far boundary of the plot and opens onto the substantial area of lawn which is surrounded by beautifully planted borders which are well stocked with a plethora of mature shrubs and trees.
