This impressive five-bedroom family home sits on a small no-through road off Lime Kiln Lane, on the edge of the pretty village of Uplyme.

The detached dwelling, named Sea Drift, is situated within easy reach of Uplyme’s amenities and has spectacular views of the countryside and out across Lyme Bay with Portland in the distance.

Midweek Herald: The sitting room has the wow factor with triple sliding doors to the terrace.

From the property, there is an easy 30-minute walk along the banks of the river Lym, across a field and through the woods into Lyme Regis.

The substantial dwelling has been subject to an extensive refurbishment by the current owners including recent extensions and reconfiguring to make the most of the fantastic views.

Midweek Herald: The gardens have been extensively landscaped

Inside, the house is beautifully presented throughout and has many fine features. The sitting room certainly has the wow factor with roof lights, a charming wood-burning stove and triple sliding doors to the sandstone terrace. The double-aspect dining room is a bright and light-filled space, and the stylish kitchen is fitted with a range of glossy white units and has a stainless-steel Range cooker. The ground floor is completed with two double bedrooms, where one room could be used as a study, and a shower room.

On the first floor, there are a further three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the gardens have been extensively landscaped, and feature two level areas of lawn terraced with sleeper walls and well-stocked borders. A meandering pathway leads down to a wildflower grass area sheltered by hedging and there is a generous sandstone terrace, flanked by lavender and low topiary trees, from where it is possible to appreciate the spectacular views.

At the front, there is a concrete and gravel parking area and a well-sheltered garden.
