Characterful stone farmhouse, set in a small hamlet just a short distance from Lyme Regis, Uplyme and the magical Jurassic Coast.
Lower Holcombe is a beautiful and entirely unspoilt grade II listed building, which dates from the late 18th Century. The property has been in the same family for five generations and is offered to the market for the first time in over 80 years.
Set in about 1.87 acres, this wisteria clad, detached stone farmhouse, which requires modernisation throughout, retains many original period features, including wonderful flagstone floors, fireplaces and sash windows.
The entrance hall has an original flagstone floor, which leads to the kitchen/breakfast room with an oil-fired AGA and pantry area. The charming sitting room has a working fireplace and there is a spacious drawing room, with concealed inglenook fireplace and lovely views over the pretty south facing gardens. Also on the ground-floor is a delightful dining room, and a utility/boot room with shower and WC.
The first floor landing leads to seven bedrooms, six doubles and one single/study bedroom. There is also a family bathroom on this floor. At the back of the house, there is a workshop/storage area, possibly a former apple store, which conveniently serves as an integral garage too.
The well-established south west facing gardens extend to approximately 1.87 acres, bordered by the lane to the north and a stream to the south. Whilst predominantly laid to lawn, there are various mature borders, and a variety of trees that provide year-round colour and interest. A pretty stream with a walk over bridge runs through the grounds, and paddocks, once orchards, lie to the front and back of the house, completing the heavenly setting.
