The privately owned Rousdon Estate is situated on the East Devon coastline about 2½ miles from the Dorset border at Lyme Regis. It is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt locations on the South Coast. It comprises parkland, farmland and extensive areas of woodland (extending in all to about 350 acres) including a Nature Reserve which is leased to English Nature. Each property has the benefit of walks within the Estate and access to a private beach (Charton Beach) and also the famous 'Undercliff' coastal footpath between Lyme Regis and the Axe Estuary and Axmouth.


The Paddock was originally built as a school master's house in 1989 and has undergone complete refurbishment to create a stylish contemporary home finished to a high specification with well planned accommodation enjoying unspoilt views over the gardens and across to the sea.

The property is ready to be used as a full time home. A beautiful farmhouse style kitchen leads to the large conservatory/garden room with bi-fold doors opening out to the garden. The lounge has French doors which open out onto a Victorian style veranda.
The master bedroom suite is particularly spacious having originally been 2 rooms and has an en-suite wet room. In addition there is a family bathroom and further en-suite shower room. The remaining 3 bedrooms are all double rooms.

The Rousdon Estate has been purchased by Allhallows Limited a company formed by participating Estate property owners. An opportunity to buy a share in the Allhallows may exist.


A gravelled driveway leads to the front of the property with ample parking for a number of vehicles with a good sized garage to the side with power and lighting. The level gardens to the rear enjoy a south and westerly aspect with views across fields to the sea. Adjoining the conservatory and sitting room is an extensive slate patio with glass veranda overlooking the gardens. There are large sweeping areas of lawn with a variety of trees leading to the small orchard and productive fruit and vegetable area. At the bottom of the gardens is a separate access with a five bar gate. In all the grounds extend to approximately 2 acres.


Take the A3052 from Lyme Regis or Seaton direction until reaching the village of Rousdon. The entrance to the Rousdon Estate is marked by a gatehouse and stone pillars. Follow the drive with the Mansion House directly ahead, turning right towards West Lodge. Continue along and The Paddock is the very last property on the left hand side.
