The Property Partnership are pleased to present Drakes Cottage, a simply stunning two double-bedroom character cottage with courtyard garden and off-street-parking, ideally situated within the very heart of Lyme's old town, just moments from the beach and seafront.
Set back from historic Coombe Street, this truly unique property is approached via a driveway with off-street-parking for one vehicle, as well as a very pretty courtyard garden, which includes a seating area and space for pot plants and herbs. Upon entering the cottage, one gets an immediate sense of the wealth of period features, including timber beams, exposed brickwork and original fireplaces. These combine beautifully with more contemporary additions such as the kitchen and bathrooms. Accessed via an entrance hall with storage, the ground floor offers a semi open-plan layout, including a gorgeous kitchen-diner with green slate worktops, butler sink and underfloor heating, a twenty-two foot sitting room with log burner and a WC. Upstairs, two generous, dual-aspect double bedrooms each enjoy their own en-suite underfloor heated shower/wet rooms. Both bedrooms, the landing and stairs have engineered oak flooring, while there is also a Velux roof light above the stairway with remote control opening plus a rain sensor for auto closing.
This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special home in the heart of Lyme's old town, perfect either as a permanent home, a holiday let investment or bit of both. The cottage is just moments away from the Town Mill, Lyme's artisanal hub and home to a micro brewery, gallery, working water mill and various creative and independent businesses.
Known as the 'Pearl of Dorset', Lyme Regis is a picturesque seaside resort nestling against the Devon border. Characterised by its sweeping Cobb harbour, the town overlooks the glorious expanses of Lyme Bay, and is located on the stunning Jurassic World Heritage Site, within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Truly a town for all seasons, Lyme maintains a thriving community, with excellent shopping, a vibrant cultural offering, its own brewery, an array of inviting pubs and a nationally recognised food scene. There is a mainline station at nearby Axminster, offering regular services into London Waterloo, while the historic market town and antique/vintage hub of Bridport is also easily accessible.
