THE PROPERTY

Woodhay is a charming individual cottage-style house set in more than half an acre of gardens and located in a peaceful semi-rural position yet within very easy reach of the highly regarded seaside town of Lyme Regis. The origins of the property are obscure but there was certainly a small building on the site before the end of the 19th century. Over the years Woodhay has been considerably transformed by sympathetic enlargement, but The Hut , as it was once known, still exists within the current property, providing a characterful downstairs reception room, dining room or study. Under the current family ownership, which has lasted since the late 1980s, Woodhay has served as a much-loved home, yet there is now scope for further improvement inside and out, giving the new owner a fantastic opportunity to personalise this substantial country home and it's large, secluded grounds.

Internally, the accommodation is very well proportioned with a sociable emphasis, particularly throughout the ground floor accommodation which includes four reception rooms. In addition to the historical dining room, which also features an original (but now secondary) staircase, there is an expansive family room with an exposed natural stone fireplace and wood burner, a similarly large sitting room and a conservatory which overlooks the rear garden. Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, which benefits from a utility area and a cloakroom. Upstairs there are three bedrooms including a large principal bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe, and the family bathroom.

OUTSIDE

Woodhay is set in a large, primarily level plot amounting to approximately 0.65 of an acre, much of which extends to the rear and side of the property and is arranged as a well stocked, varied garden which offers an atmosphere of great seclusion and privacy. Within the garden are several outbuildings and sheds, in addition to the two garages which are sited at either end of the plot: the double garage benefits from an adjoining gated parking area.

ADDITIONAL LAND

An adjoining field amounting to approximately 6.07 acres of level pasture land is also available by separate negotiation, Guide price £100,000.

SITUATION

The property is located in a wonderful semi-rural position on the edge of the popular village of Uplyme and therefore within easy reach of Lyme Regis. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are glorious walks in the area and the South West Coast Path can be joined at Lyme Regis. Within the village there is a healthy range of amenities including a petrol station/shop, pub and an active village hall.
