Property description

A truly stunning contemporary home enjoying outstanding views to the sea and across the historic town of lyme regis

Pinehurst is an impressive contemporary style house with an 'art deco' flavour featuring a circular staircase tower.

In recent years, the current owners have transformed a substantial detached bungalow to create this unique two storey contemporary home providing tastefully appointed light and bright 4/5 bedroomed accommodation. Undoubtedly a major feature of the property is that of the breathtaking sea views it offers from both the ground and first floors, together with its wrap around balcony accessed from the bedroom suites.

The house is set within good sized mature gardens and situated in the sought after Timber Hill area with Lyme Regis Golf course just 1/4 mile or so further up the hill. Some 250m away you will find 'The Spittles' famous for its beautiful Bluebell wood, which leads to an attractive cliff top walk with views to the Cobb and Harbour. The beach and town are within walking distance, taking approx 15 minutes where you will find an abundance of activities, including sailing, paddle-boarding, mackerel fishing, bowls and its own Marine Theatre which hosts a variety of shows, musical events and comedy throughout the year. If you love to eat out, Mark Hix presides over one of the best seafood restaurants in the country at Hix Oyster and Fish House overlooking Lyme bay, and Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's River Cottage hq and Canteen both a 10 minute drive.

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. There is a main line railway station at Axminster which is 6 miles inland (Exeter to Waterloo line, the journey time to Waterloo is approximately 3 hours).

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset ‘Jurassic Coast’ awarded World Heritage Site status by unesco in December 2001.

All in all, this would make a wonderful primary or secondary home, and offers further scope to extend or indeed the potential to provide additional accommodation within the grounds if needed, (stpc)
