This beautiful Grade II family home in 1.08 acres comes with a holiday apartment and coach house
Colway House is a stunning Georgian/Regency house situated above the sought-after coast town of Lyme Regis. Believed to date from the 1820’s, the house has taken on a range of guises over the years as a restaurant, a nursery school and even a small hotel. The current owners have lovingly updated the house throughout, tastefully blending modern features and style with the elegance of the original building to create a stunning family home.
Four of the elegant reception rooms and the superb open plan kitchen/dining/family room each have French doors opening onto the gardens. Upstairs, a clever design either offers 6 bedrooms, or provides a self-contained apartment sleeping 4, and successfully let throughout the year. With a sound-proofed home office and a basement for storage/games, the house really does offer everything for the family needs.
Approached via a tree-lined drive, the private gardens and grounds extend to approximately 1.08 acres, with lovely lawns to the south and west, mature boundaries and fruit trees. A former coach house provides a double garage with stores, and plans have been drawn up to convert this to additional holiday accommodation, subject to planning permission.
The views from the house are stunning, taking in the roof tops of the town and Lyme Bay beyond. With the coast and all the water-sports, fossil-hunting and fabulous walks it has to offer, golf, education and amenities all on hand, Colway House really does offer a wonderful life-style. It is on the market with a Guide of £1,650,000, contact Rickey Stoodley at Symonds & Sampson 01297 33122 for further information.
