Charming cottage in need of renovation, offering much flexibility to be a main home or split down into two or three smaller units. Council Tax Band D, EPC band G, Freehold.


Uplyme is a very popular village with a variety of local amenities, including a petrol station/Post Office/village shop, church, highly regarded primary/secondary schools, village hall with cricket pitch and tennis club and public house. The popular coastal town of Lyme Regis is very nearby with lovely beaches, harbour and the iconic Cobb. This thriving town offers bespoke shopping and dining as well as good provision of day to day amenities, including a health centre, churches, library and an independent theatre. The whole area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with excellent walking opportunities easily accessible from the property, including the lovely walk along the River Lym to Lyme Regis.


Formerly three separate cottages, Eveleigh has more recently been inhabited as one detached house offering much flexibility to a buyer wanting to renovate and create a superb main home, or split into two or three cottages for multi-generational living or holiday let purposes. There are many ways the property could be redesigned and laid out to suit your needs. Currently the property is being sold as one unit under two separate title deeds. Not being listed gives more flexibility to a buyer wishing to make changes and we understand the thatched roof is suitable to be rethatched if wished, or removed and replaced with a more modern material. The thatched roof is currently under corrugated iron.


Accommodation is arranged over two floors with many original features such as inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and floorboards offering so much character and potential. With three separate staircases centrally and at either end, it would be possible to divide the accommodation into two or three smaller cottages or retained as one. There are attractive rear gardens offering much privacy with a newly renovated stone outbuilding to one side, a summer house and access around the side of the house. At the front is off street parking, for two small cars or one larger, but by removing a front wall a further space could be created.

The current owners have achieved planning consent for demolition of rear extension and replacement with a two storey rear extension. Plans can be viewed on the planning portal under 22/2687/FUL.
