An impressive detached coastal home, superbly located just a short walk from Lyme Regis town, and with exquisite views of stunning Lyme Bay. Benefiting from direct right of way access to the South West Coast Path and the beach. THE PROPERTY Situated just a few minutes' walk from the town and beach, Martins Mead is placed at the end of a quiet no-through road. The property has immediate and spectacular sea views, looking out to Lyme Bay and beyond. Martins Mead has recently benefited from a new extension and complete renovation. It has been finished to an exceptional standard and high quality specification throughout, with many practical features for modern coastal living. On arrival you step into the spacious reception hall, with doors leading off to the additional reception room and downstairs cloakroom and utility. The large carpeted additional reception room has sea views, and could be used as a second lounge, play room, office or 5th bedroom. The utility room has fitted cupboards and space for a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is ample space in the hall for shoes and coats, with an oak and glass staircase to the first floor. Walking through the hall, you enter the huge open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room, with beautiful oak parquet flooring. This delightful and extensive space has a triple aspect, with stunning coastal views from both the kitchen and living areas. There are patio doors which open onto the large dining terrace, with steps up to the garden. The fully fitted brand new kitchen includes a tall larder fridge, tall larder freezer, 5 ring induction hob, dishwasher, twin Miele ovens and a wine cooler. This room also benefits from a new wood burner. The stairs leading from the reception hall take you to an upstairs landing, with oak and glass balustrade. There are four large double bedrooms, 3 of which enjoy the stunning coastal outlook, and 2 have individually designed en suite shower rooms. Here is an example of the exceptional attention to detail taken with this home, with even the toilets being positioned to make the most of the spectacular sea views. A family bathroom with bath, and overhead shower, completes the upstairs. OUTSIDE The small front landscaped garden makes for a delightful welcome to the house. The rear outside space to Martins Mead is usefully gated; double timber gates at the side of the house lead to the private off road parking, with space for 3 cars. There is also a new electric car charging point, outside tap and double electrical socket. Walking around to the back of the house, there is a large dining terrace and BBQ area, to truly expand the wonderful lifestyle living this property provides. From here, a handful of small steps go up to the large lawned back garden. Within the back garden, which again has sea views, is a large timber garden room. This newly built room has lighting and power, and could be used as a home office, or with great potential for a variety of other uses. Adjacent to the garden room is an additional patio, with a new timber pergola.
