A TASTEFULLY MODERNISED DETACHED COTTAGE SET IN GOOD SIZED SOUTH FACING GARDENS AND WITHIN A SHORT WALK OF THE TOWN CENTRE AND BEACH
This substantial detached cottage was built in the early 1900's and in recent years has been comprehensively modernised whilst retaining character features.
The property sits in a good sized, south facing walled garden. There is also a charming old brick built potting shed which has been part converted to a studio (with shower and WC installed). In addition there is a parking area for two cars. 'Hernelee' was originally the gardener's cottage to an imposing period house, 'Westhill' (now an Abbeyfield residential home). The town centre and seafront are close by, just a few minutes 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.

Was originally used by the gardeners to the big house. It is a charming brick and tiled building with potential to be converted to a studio or annexe - this has partially been carried out by recent installation of a shower/WC. It measures in total 16'6 x 9' (5.03m x 2.74m) and has a useful loft above.
