The stunning Jurassic Coast is within a half an hour drive, and has a lot to offer with its natural beauty and activities in Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth.


This penthouse apartment was sympathetically converted in the early 1990's within this beautiful Grade II Listed Old Coach House formed around a paved courtyard.

Built by Lord Sidmouth in the 19th Century as the stables and coach house to serve Upottery Manor next door (now demolished), it is constructed of local stone and flint, with Membury stone ashlar dressings under a recently renovated slate roof.

The property has been recently renovated and would make an ideal full-time residence, or second home.


Set at the top of this impressive property, Cabriolet, has a wealth of light, character and lovely views over the countryside.

The entrance way (shared with one other property) leading up to the apartment with its large arch windows and exposed stone work is a welcoming start to this individual home, with private storage on the ground floor for this apartment.

Upon entering the property there is an entrance porch with space for coats and shoes. A further door provides access to the central hall way with a stunning arched window and provides ample space to be used as a work from home office. The cosy sitting room has a double aspect and features exposed beams and stonework, this room flows through into the triple aspect kitchen/ diner with its recently replaced range of units and integrated appliances.

There are two double bedrooms, the largest bedroom has an en-suite with under floor heating, built in wardrobe and similar exposed beams and stonework that are echoed in the sitting room. There is also a recently replaced family bathroom.

Providing useful storage is the large loft space with loft ladder access, there is also an airing cupboard that has a new tank.


There is allocated paring for 2 cars, one in the courtyard at the front of the property and the second located adjacent to the shed.


To the side through the small arch is a large timber garden shed (the end one) with a concrete floor and electricity connected, adjacent to this is space in front of the shed for addition parking.


The property is a long leasehold with the remainder of a 999 year lease, starting on the 1st Jan 1992. The 6 apartment owners of The Coach House share the overall freehold of the building with each property owning one share. The leaseholders currently pay £160 per month to cover general maintenance including planting and building insurance for the properties, as well as building a maintenance fund reserve to allocate as required. Please note the whole roof of the building has been recently re-felted, battened and replaced natural slate where applicable.
