A splendid Edwardian home combining period features & contemporary style with exceptional sea views. EPC Band C.

THE PROPERTY

Number 1 Rotherfield House forms the significant portion of an individual Edwardian house, part of a sympathetic redevelopment of this character house into three individual residences. The property is arranged over three floors and has the bearing, charm and period style of a home of its era, whilst having been thoroughly and sympathetically modernized. The current owners have elevated the home to an exceptionally high standard, offering a truly unique and attractive proposition. The property has outstanding sea views and the convenience of being a stones-throw from the beach and amenities of Lyme, whilst being situated in a quiet residential street, adjacent to woods, footpaths, pretty walks along the river Lim and away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist thoroughfares.

The property benefits from its own private entrance leading to a courtyard style garden, which has been professionally landscaped and extensively planted. Entering via a custom made solid timber front door, the ground floor hall is light and spacious with attractive Herringbone Karndene flooring and wooden shutters to the character windows. There is a spacious downstairs cloakroom/utility room with a rear door providing direct access to the garden.

The original staircase leads to the first floor where the main living space and master suite is situated. Upon entering the open-plan living space you are met by breathtaking panoramic views over Lyme Bay and far beyond. The kitchen/dining room is very well appointed with built in appliances including: an induction hob, extractor fan, two ovens and grill, integrated dishwasher and a large integrated fridge and separate freezer. The kitchen design really makes the most of the space whilst not competing with the outlook; it leads your eye directly outside via the full height, wooden French doors which frame the expansive view and lead out to the terrace.

The sitting room, which is partially divided from the kitchen/dining area, is a generous size and also benefits from a second set of French doors onto the terrace. The room, like much of the property exudes many period style features such as deep skirting boards, ceiling roses, cornicing, cast iron radiators and a period style decorative fireplace, whilst feeling fresh and contemporary.

The master bedroom is also on the first floor. With wooden window shutters, a plethora of fitted wardrobes as well as a small separate dressing area leading to the large en-suite bathroom which is fitted with a free-standing roll-top bath and separate oversize walk-in rain shower. This bedroom is a really lovely space which can easily accommodate a king size bed.

Stairs from the first floor hallway lead to the second floor where it becomes evident that this unique property is more a house than a traditional apartment. It is of generous proportions with an unexpected and large second reception space which lends itself to a variety of uses: home office, cinema room, playroom, studio or an additional sleeping area for occasional guests all of which benefit from more fabulous views. There are two further bedrooms, both of which are good sizes - one comfortably fitting a king-size bed and the other suitable for a variety of bed configurations. A modern, stylish family bathroom completes the accommodation on this floor.

OUTSIDE

The first floor decked terrace is a real treat: surprisingly large, privately screened and lushly planted, it s the perfect spot for relaxing, dining and enjoying the morning sun and the expansive sea views. The two sets of French doors allow for the perfect indoor/outdoor experience from the main living area.

The private gated entrance leads to a hidden courtyard-style garden that has been professionally landscaped. It now offers an exceptionally secluded and quiet spot, forming an excellent outside entertaining space, which provides both sun and shade, seclusion and a completely different ambiance to the 1/F terrace. This attractive setting is very well planted and has a stylish decked seating area. The garden benefits from outdoor lighting around the front door and porch, but is also pre-wired for additional outdoor lighting to be easily installed if desired.

The property benefits from level, private off-road parking for at least two vehicles, together with plenty of additional space for storing bicycles, paddleboards or canoes etc. There is guest parking for another vehicle which is shared between the three residences.
