A SPACIOUS GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT IN AN ELEGANT EDWARDIAN RESIDENCE.
SECLUDED SETTING WITH SEA VIEWS.
Glen Andred is one of Lyme's 'special' houses set in good sized secluded gardens in an elevated position with views to the sea. The house was built in the early 1900's and was carefully restored and developed in 1989/90 to create 5 luxury apartments with care taken to retain character features whilst providing modern amenities.
It enjoys a sunny southerly aspect in a sought after residential area about 3/4 mile from the town centre and seafront. About 350 metres below the property is the River Lym alongside which is a picturesque walk inland to Uplyme and eastwards a 10-15 minute walk along the pretty river into the town centre. There are multiple pleasant dog walking routes in close proximity to the property.
Lyme Regis is an historic 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.
