This detached chalet bungalow was originally built in the 1960's to traditional specifications and has subsequently been much improved by an excellent loft conversion providing additional living/bedroom accommodation.

Particular features of the property are the extensive mature gardens and super views to the sea and West Dorset coastline from a sunny south easterly aspect.

Beyond the garden is a small meadow which has great potential for cultivation if required.

Clappentail Park is a quiet close of good quality properties well away from main roads and about 1/2 mile from the town centre shops and seafront.

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.
