The period property is set within the centre of its acreage with holiday letting cottages close to the Dorset and East Devon Coastline which was available at a guide price of £1.95 million.

Furzeleigh House provides a 4/5 bedroom property with views over the surrounding countryside and valley and incorporated a 1 bedroom apartment/annexe which could be used as a holiday letting apartment or occupied by a family member.

The property is set down a ¼ of a mile asphalt driveway which gives it a high degree of privacy. Adjoining the house is a two storey, 2 bedroom annexe and the house includes a walled garden with orchard, vegetable patch and a greenhouse. Set away from the main residence are two semi-detached holiday letting cottages and the property has the potential to let the 3 cottages and the apartment out as a holiday letting business.

Furzeleigh House is set in approximately 37 acres including paddocks, woodland, a lake and nature pond. The land has potential for glamping (yurts, shepherd huts and pods).  Outbuilding include stores, guest laundry/cloakroom as well as an agricultural steel portal framed barn.

Stephen Richards, Head of Humberts Leisure comments “It is unusual to find a property of this size in the centre of its acreage nowadays and the property is located only 4 miles from the harbour town of Lyme Regis on the Dorset Coastline.  We received strong interest for the property as soon as we brought it to the market and had several bids on the property before agreeing a sale on behalf of our clients.

The new owners are looking to run the property as a holiday letting business due to being in a prime holiday area.  The majority of the potential purchasers that viewed Furzeleigh House were coming from London and the South East looking to move to the West Country for a change in lifestyle.”
