This prominent 1930s country residence in Rousdon, only three miles west of Lyme Regis, is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and grounds approaching an acre. Constructed with colour washed elevations under a tiled roof, the house was built to an individual design in 1938 and has been maintained to high standard.

Inside, the detached house is bright, spacious and well-presented, and has several vantage points that take in the far-reaching countryside views.  On the ground floor, there's a dual aspect living room with an arts and crafts style open fireplace. The dining room has a circular feature fireplace and a lovely bay window. The well-proportioned study, a perfect home office, is equipped with an impressive range of fitted bookshelves and storage cupboards. 
The kitchen is generous in size and has stylish country cream units topped with wood effect laminate work surfaces. A square archway leads through to a bright breakfast room that provides outstanding views over the garden and out to the hills beyond.
