AN INDIVIDUAL DETACHED CHALET BUNGALOW SET IN DELIGHTFUL 'WILDLIFE' GARDENS IN AN EXCLUSIVE RESIDENTIAL AREA.
FINE SEA AND COASTAL VIEWS.
Pinecroft is believed to have been constructed in 1954 to traditional specifications with rendered cavity walls and a tiled roof.
The property enjoys a delightful mature setting with a sunny southerly aspect with excellent sea views, especially from the first floor.
Since purchasing the property 25 years ago the current owners have created impressive wildlife gardens which have achieved accolades from Dorset Wildlife Trust in their 'Wildlife Friendly Gardening' competition and also reported in the Daily Telegraph as "a haven for wildlife on the Dorset Coast".
Pinecroft is quietly tucked away in a private road (Greenway, off Somers Road) which serves just 5 individual detached properties and occupies a site of about 1/3 Acre.
Somers Road is an exclusive residential cul-de-sac on the western side of town and long established as Lyme's premier residential area. The town centre and seafront are about 3/4 mile 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.
