A unique detached bungalow with exceptional sea views OIEO £729,000
A unique spacious detached bungalow with exceptional panoramic elevated sea and coastal views over Charmouth and the Marshwood Vale. Situated within the pretty hamlet of Catherston Leweston on the outskirts of Charmouth on a private prestigious road.
Wood Rising has been in the same family ownership for over forty years, and now needs some refurbishing to update the accommodation on this spectacular site. All the principle living areas face south with idyllic sea and coastal views across to the Jurassic coastline below. Generous mature gardens to both the front and rear with a great deal of privacy.
The L shaped accommodation offers some flexibility for family living space with up to three reception rooms, useful perhaps as a home office or potential for self contained annexe if desired. Approx.1500 sq ft overall.
The current owners have also obtained planning permission recently for a unique architect designed eco property with three bedrooms which will take full advantage of the setting and views. Plans available courtesy of Saunders Boston Architects in Exeter.
