A CHARMING AND WELL-APPOINTED VICTORIAN VILLA, AFFORDING GENEROUS CHARACTER PERIOD ACCOMMODATION THROUGHOUT

Braeside is thought to date back to the late 18th Century, befitting of the period with its characterful charm and appeal. Once thought to be part of the old Georgian farmhouse situated on the land centuries ago, with extensions added at later times, the property provides light and bright accommodation with fantastic period detail including panelled walls and doors, picture rails and sash windows.

The house is positioned on the edge of Lyme Regis, affording views to the valley to one side and the sea to another from the first and second floors. It benefits from three good sized bedrooms (two with ensuite shower rooms), as well as two further attic rooms, a lovely kitchen diner with access to a utility and store, lounge, dining room, family bathroom and two separate WC's/cloakrooms.

A particular feature of the property is the private garden space, providing a large patio seating area as well as raised shrub beds, which is deceptively spacious, together with off road parking adjacent to the property for 2-3 vehicles.

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.

LOCATION, ACCESS AND OUTSIDE SPACE
Braeside is located along the Uplyme Road, positioned close to the Woodroffe School and the local medical centre. The front entrance for the property is approached via a small pathway leading to an attractive entrance porch, which in turn provides access into a grand entrance hall. The gardens for the property lie to the side and adjacent to Braeside. They are tiered, of a very generous size and surprisingly private. There is a large patio seating area to the lower level, whilst paths and steps provide access up to the elevated areas, mainly laid to raised shrub beds and borders, further interspersed with mature trees and with a timber decking area to the upper level. Parking is afforded by a tarmacadam driveway, with access off the Uplyme Road for Braeside and the neighbouring property, Blue Neptune. The parking area is also accessible from the garden via a timber gate set into the wall.
