Being sold as one entity. A large and spacious classic home and property with Coach House and extra lot with outline planning permission for another home. Incredible views of the Jurassic Coast and the sea.

Highlands is a substantial detached house built in the 1930's by Caddy - a local builder renowned for quality houses in Lyme Regis.

The house offers generously proportioned accommodation constructed to an individual design with character features including extensive wall panelling and an impressive staircase, half timbering to the front elevation, wide bay windows etc. Whilst the property has been generally well cared for it does now require updating.

It enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is set in extensive gardens of about 1 Acre in a private road (Greenway, off Somers Road) which serves just 5 individual detached properties. This is a much sought after residential area on the western edge of Lyme Regis with views of the sea. The town centre and seafront are about 3/4 mile away.

Tucked away in the top corner of the site is a Building Plot with outline planning consent for a detached dwelling. This is included in the sale and it is of course entirely the choice of the buyer whether or not to undertake the development.

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.
