With stunning southerly views towards the coast Gypsies End occupies an enviable position in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with exceptional walking and riding opportunities from the door. Nearly all the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust, affording spectacular views over unspoilt countryside to the sea. Here stretches Dorset's Jurassic Coast - designated a World Heritage Site as much for its stupendous beauty as its unique geology. Though blissfully tranquil and secluded, Fishpond offers quick and easy access to the market town of Axminster, with excellent shopping, supermarkets and department store, swimming pool and sports facilities, library and health centre, and the popular River Cottage Canteen. The recently upgraded rail service offers an hourly direct train to London. The coast is accessed at Charmouth and Lyme Regis.


Gypsies End is an enchanting bungalow built from an original chapel, that dates back over 200 years. It was sympathetically extended over 50 years ago to create this unique and individual home. The accommodation is well laid out with a few split levels creating accommodation which makes the most of the spectacular views. Many of the rooms are of dual or triple aspect and overlook the gardens which encircle and encapture the house. The house is nestled into the plot, making the most of the views towards the sea and the Char valley, with a beautiful open aspect over the rolling West Dorset hills. The accommodation contains three bedrooms, the master benefitting from a triple aspect and plenty of built in storage space. There are good ceiling heights throughout. From the hallway there is a utility room and a sizable sitting room, in the original chapel part of the property, as such this part of the house has many feature windows and multi fuel burner whilst enjoying aspects over the garden. There are two family bathrooms both of a decent size, one sitting on one side of the house to service two double bedrooms and the other just sitting next to the master bedroom making this almost an en suite! The master bedroom has a beautiful bay window overlooking the garden and giving you direct views across the Charmouth Valley. NB: Please note there are pylons in the area, for further details please contact the agent.


There is a single garage to the top of the plot. There is a sizable fruit cage and a decent sized shed with power connected and electrical doors. The gardens are predominantly laid to lawn, interspersed with an abundance of mature shrubs, specimen plants and trees dotted around creating lots of lovely vantage points to enjoy the views and areas of shady interest. There is also an enchanting walk down to the house. Towards the bottom of the garden there is a sizable vegetable plot and a feature pond which has been beautifully landscaped. Lawns sweep around this area on a couple of different levels, again making the most of the stunning aspect and vistas.
