THE PROPERTY

Greenways is a delightful detached home located in a fantastic position tucked away at the end of a no-through lane and set well away from passing traffic, with glorious views both to the rear across adjoining fields, and to the front towards Langdon Wood and Hardown Hill, particularly from the terrace. Dating back to 1938, the property was built in an Arts and Crafts style with colonial influences and therefore offers many interesting character features such as wooden floors and internal doors, fireplaces in the reception rooms, a fascinating front door, picture rails and high ceilings throughout. Under the current ownership, which has spanned 3 decades, the property has been lovingly maintained and improved including sympathetic extensions, creating a charming and comfortable home with the space and versatility to suit a variety of lifestyles.

 

Internally the rooms are well proportioned and comfortably balanced between living and sleeping accommodation with excellent storage throughout. The reception rooms provide the ideal setting for all types of entertaining as well as for everyday enjoyment, from family dinners in the charming dining room to relaxation in the comfortable and characterful sitting room or taking full advantage of the double doors to the south-facing garden from the sun room. Lying adjacent to the dining room, the kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with bespoke wooden units which befit the stunning outlook across neighbouring farmland which can be enjoyed from the windows. The three bedrooms are as equally appealing as the living accommodation; two are of double proportions, and one benefits from direct access to the shower room, which also adjoins the sun room in a Jack-and-Jill arrangement, enabling the sun room to be used as a fourth bedroom if desired. There is also a family bathroom/shower room accessed from the hallway.

OUTSIDE

Greenways is surrounded by established and primarily level gardens amounting to a quarter of an acre. Much of the garden is to the front, taking full advantage of the south-facing aspect, but is not overlooked and therefore offers a sunny, private haven. A paved sun terrace adjoins the house, part of which is arranged as a veranda, creating the perfect place for al fresco dining, relaxing or entertaining. There is also a large summerhouse. Parking is provided on the gated driveway which leads to an attached garage. The property is approached over a shared, private lane and we understand that Greenways owns the turning circle located just outside the gate.

SITUATION

The property is situated in a peaceful position at the end of Appletree Lane, tucked away from the main road in Chideock: a most charming village close to the beaches and sea at Seatown with facilities including two pubs, a shop/post office, churches and village hall. The area is designated as one of Outstanding Natural Beauty and close to National Trust land with spectacular cliff and coastal walks along the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast. Plenty of year-round arts, crafts and cultural events are held in Lyme Regis and Bridport, and regular bus services operate from the village to both towns.
