A SPECTACULAR PENTHOUSE APARTMENT WITH GENEROUS THREE BEDROOMED ACCOMMODATION AND EXCEPTIONAL SEA AND COASTAL VIEWS
This must be one of the most impressive apartments in Lyme Regis, not only does it feature generous three bedroomed accommodation, but it also enjoys spectacular views of the sea and West Dorset coastline from Lyme to Portland.
Buckfields is an excellent quality development of 14 flats on four floors including the Penthouses. It was completed in early 2007 and subsequently maintained to a high standard. Features include a level approach and passenger lift (suitable for wheelchair access) and a secure gated environment accessed by key pads and an entry phone system, and a most attractive communal garden.
Although quietly tucked away the property is within easy access of the town centre and seafront (just a few minutes walk away).
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.
