Set over two floors this luxury penthouse apartment in an elegant Edwardian residence has three bedrooms, fine sea views, allocated parking and south facing communal gardens.
Glen Andred, an impressive Edwardian residence was built in the early 1900's and carefully restored and developed in 1989/90. The house was then sympathetically divided into five individual luxury apartments. Situated in a quiet sought after residential area about 3/4 of a mile from the sea front and beaches with picturesque walks along the River Lym to the town centre or inland towards Uplyme. Lyme Regis is famed for its many historic connections and character buildings, and of course, for its well known Cobb Harbour. As a resort, it is considered quite unspoilt, but has most of the shops and amenities that one could require. In addition to which there are numerous leisure activities including both sailing and power boat clubs, a cliff top golf course and a bowling club. The whole coastline with Lyme Regis and Charmouth at its centre has been designated a World Heritage Site commonly known as the Jurassic Coast, it lies approximately 5 miles from the market town of Axminster, with its main line railway connections to Waterloo (Approx. 2 3/4 hours). Taunton and Exeter are within a radius of about 30 miles with access to the M5 motorway and the county town of Dorchester is a similar distance. Locally there are excellent primary schools in Lyme Regis and Uplyme along with the well respected Woodroffe and Colyton Grammar Schools.
