A fantastic contemporary property with four bedrooms and far-reaching sea and countryside views. THE PROPERTY Tucked away in an elevated position a short walk from the centre of Charmouth and the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, first glimpses of The Sail Loft are most impressive with its hugely attractive faade constructed of natural French Oak boarding and old stock brick under a slate roof. As soon as you as you enter this exquisite property it is immediately obvious that it has undergone a fastidious programme of works spanning at least three years, with a huge amount of flair and attention to detail. Every room in this property puts a smile on your face! The principal bedrooms are cleverly situated on the ground floor keeping them cool in the summer, yet with lots of natural light, including a large master bedroom with adjoining dressing room, en suite shower room and direct access to the garden and gravelled terrace, ideal for sitting and having a morning coffee. There are two further beautiful bedrooms on this floor, one with an en suite shower room, a separate family bathroom, a utility room and an integral garage/workshop. A beautiful wooden staircase leads up to the first floor which is quite simply 'as good as it gets.' There is a truly magnificent open plan sitting area, kitchen and balcony boasting staggering countryside views on one side and sea views to the other. At one end of this magnificent room is a sitting area with a log burning stove and timber beams. There is also a separate double bedroom which could be put to a number of other uses, including a study or a playroom, and a separate cloakroom, small study and a huge dining area leading out to the balcony with its magnificent sea views. To the other end is an open plan bespoke kitchen incorporating a range of attractive units and a breakfast bar. A large balcony leads down to a delightful garden with a lawned area and gravelled terrace ideal for al fresco dining. This garden has cleverly been designed to be totally manageable, with a lawned area and well stocked borders. There is also plenty of gravelled parking to the front of the property. All in all, this would make a truly magnificent primary or secondary home in an idyllic yet very convenient location. LOCATION Charmouth is a delightful unspoilt seaside village set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its Jurassic coastline being awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site Status in 2001. The blue flag beach itself is well renowned for its fossils, and it is a great attraction for both amateur and experienced hunters alike. The village offers excellent amenities including newsagents/general store, bakery, hairdresser, doctors surgery, library, restaurants and pubs. Much of the surrounding countryside is either owned or controlled by the National Trust, with an abundance of footpaths on the doorstep. The historic resort of Lyme Regis is just 3 miles to the west, offering sailing, mackerel fishing, theatre and hosting many festivals throughout the year, with many independent shops and restaurants including Mark Hix's Oyster & Fish House. Axminster is under 6 miles away with a large supermarket and a variety of independent shops and restaurants and a mainline railway station to London Waterloo. The larger city of Exeter lies some 32 miles away, with an international airport and large range of facilities and high street shopping with department stores including a large John Lewis.
