ONE OF LYME'S SPECIAL PERIOD HOUSES (GRADE II LISTED) IN AN EXCELLENT TOWN CENTRE LOCATION.
The Lawn, we understand, has origins dating back to the 1600's when it was a coaching inn. In the Georgian period it was extended and later the bay windows were added resulting in one of the town's most imposing properties. It is Grade II Listed.
A more recent wing (South Lawn) was separated off some 25 years ago.
Fortunately, whilst the property would benefit from thorough refurbishment it has retained its inherent character and represents a great project for a new owner who is sympathetic to historic buildings.
A particular feature of The Lawn is its setting (with good sized mature gardens of about 1/4 Acre) close to the town centre and seafront. There is a footpath at the end of Stile Lane just below the property which leads to the delightful Langmoor and Lister public gardens and down to the harbour and Marine Parade.
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.
