This charming three-bedroom thatched cottage sits within well-established grounds of around 1.25 acres in the pretty and popular village of Uplyme, near Lyme Regis. As a detached period property, it is rich in characterful features as one would expect, yet as it is 'unlisted' there is potential and scope for enlargement, subject to the necessary consents.
Inside, it is cosy with exposed beams and timbers, and an inglenook fireplace acts as a strong focal point in the main living area. The kitchen has a warm farmhouse-style look with pine units and it incorporates an oil-fired Aga with part granite work surfaces and a Belfast sink.
On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms, a well proportioned single bedroom and a family bathroom.
Outside, the grounds are filled with an abundance of mature plants and shrubs, and join onto open countryside where it is possible to take in some stunning rural views. There is also an orchard, an ornamental pond, a well, and an allocated fruit and vegetable patch. In the far corner of the garden, there's a wooded copse incorporating a variety of specimen trees.
A useful detached outbuilding, built from block and natural stone, is currently used as a tandem garage.
