It's hard not to be impressed by this distinctive Grade II listed manor house. With origins dating back to the 1800s, the presence and grandeur of this elegant Gothic residence will certainly turn heads. It was separated into three dwellings just after the second world war, one of which is now up for sale.

Lovingly refurbished and cared for by its current owners, the property has retained its original character and unique touches that are typical of its age and history. Period features such as high ceilings, wooden floors and large stone mullion leaded windows are sympathetically coupled with stylish and modernised touches that give it a fresh clean look overall.

The accommodation has an open and welcoming feel to it and stretches across three floors. The kitchen doubles as a family room and has an individual charm with a notably appealing feature staircase and a traditional Belfast sink. The kitchen leads to a study or fourth bedroom and a shower room.

On the first floor, there are two large and tastefully decorated reception rooms with beautiful stone mullion windows that let the light flood in.  On the second floor are three good-sized bedrooms and a shared family bathroom.

Outside, the property is approached via a private driveway that opens to a parking area with a detached timber garage with workshop space.
The attractive gardens, laid mainly to lawn, are surrounded by mature hedge boundaries and extend to just under a quarter of an acre.

Appleby is conveniently situated on the south-eastern fringes of Axminster and is four miles from Lyme Regis.
