THE PROPERTY

Devon Dene is an attractive detached chalet-style property located in a tucked-away position within the sought-after village of Uplyme and therefore enjoying close proximity to Lyme Regis and the Jurassic Coast. Under the current ownership the property has undergone a significant programme of improvements, transforming it from the original 1960's bungalow into the comfortable quality home seen today. This has included comprehensive refurbishment, reconfiguration of the ground floor accommodation and a completely new upstairs structure to raise the roofline and create two additional double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, as well as external landscaping. Consequently, the property has the feel, appearance and convenience of a newly built property with every modern convenience catered for.

It is clear upon arriving at the property that no stone was left unturned during the renovations. During the reconfiguration and enlargement works, the floor and roof insulation levels were increased to modern standards, and the attractive New England Style cladding has allowed the walls to be further insulated as well. Fine wood has been used to great effect throughout including an impressive solid oak staircase, oak veneer internal doors, solid oak window sills and front door and engineered oak flooring throughout much of the ground floor with floorboard-style laminated flooring in the kitchen.

uPVC sealed unit windows and bi-folding doors have been installed and a pillared oak entrance porch has been added over the front door. The kitchen, bathroom and cloakroom fittings have all been updated in a stylish, contemporary fashion, and the property has recently been redecorated throughout.

Internally, the accommodation is very well proportioned and arranged in a simple, classical layout. The front door opens into the entrance hall which leads through to the sitting room area where there is a contemporary wood burning stove on a granite plinth and dual aspect windows, taking in the superb far-reaching views. There are also two separate reception rooms on the ground floor, one of which could be utilised as a ground floor bedroom 3 if desired, a well-appointed cloakroom and the kitchen/breakfast room which features attractive fitted units with spaces for appliances and bi-folding doors leading to the sun terrace. Upstairs, there are two generous double bedrooms, each with dual-aspect windows to the rear and enjoying the views, and the family bathroom which has been fitted with a contemporary suite comprising bath, separate shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.

OUTSIDE

The property stands near the centre of a generous plot which amounts to more than a fifth of an acre and has been landscaped as part of the improvements. Mixed native-species hedgerows have been planted and much of the garden has been laid to lawn with a large paved sun terrace abutting the kitchen, onto which the bi-folding doors lead. There is also a raised bed which is currently planted as a kitchen garden.

The sun terrace also gives access to the pedestrian door to the garage, which leads into a useful, insulated office area, perfect for those working from home. A further pedestrian door leads into the rest of the garage, which can also be reached via the up-and-over vehicle door from the parking area and features an inspection pit. There is also off road parking to the front for 2-3 vehicles.

SITUATION

The property is located in a wonderful position in Uplyme, which is a well served village supporting a variety of local amenities including a petrol station, post office, church, highly regarded schools for children of all ages, village hall with cricket pitch and tennis club and a public house. 1.5 miles away is the popular coastal town of Lyme Regis, part of the stunning Jurassic Coastline which includes a fantastic beach and famous Cobb harbour. This thriving town offers bespoke shopping and dining, as well as good provision of day to day amenities including health centre, churches, library and an independent theatre. The whole area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with excellent walking opportunities easily accessible from the property including a lovely walk nearby along the River Lym to Lyme Regis.
