A SPACIOUS AND TASTEFULLY MODERNISED GROUND FLOOR FLAT OVERLOOKING A PLAYING FIELD WITH VIEWS OVER THE TOWN TO THE SEA
This spacious ex-Local Authority flat occupies the ground floor of a two storey property built about 60 years ago of brick faced cavity walls beneath a tiled roof. In recent years the property has been extensively modernised and redecorated.
The property enjoys a level location opposite a playing field within walking distance of the town centre and has the benefit of attractive views across the town to the sea.
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.

The good sized front garden enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and views to the sea. It is mainly laid to lawn with a patio area and is fenced around the boundary.
Note: Neighbouring properties had created a parking space in their front gardens and we believe it is feasible here (subject to Local Authority consent), but there is residents' parking outside in Anning Road (please contact Dorset Council for more information: 01305 251010).
To the rear is a shared courtyard, brick built store shed and a further garden which is mainly lawned.
We understand that the flat is held on a 125 year lease from 1998 at an annual ground rent of £10. There is an annual service charge to cover external maintenance and insurance of the structure. We understand that the current service charge is £46.96 per month (as at October 2020).
Under the 1985 Housing Act there is a rural restriction that applies to ex-Local Authority properties. This means that the proposed purchasers must have lived or worked within the County of Dorset for a continuous period of 3 years or more. If the proposed purchasers are unable to comply with the rural restriction, then it would be necessary to obtain the specific consent of Magna Housing Association to purchase.
