A SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED HOUSE IN AN IDYLLIC COUNTRY SETTING WITH GENEROUS GROUNDS INCLUDING STABLES, FIELDS AND WOODLAND
SITUATED JUST A SHORT DRIVE FROM THE POPULAR SEASIDE TOWN OF LYME REGIS

South Watch is an imposing 6 bedroomed detached house situated in a peaceful countryside location in the charming hamlet of Harcombe within easy access of the popular coastal town of Lyme Regis.

The property started its life as a quaint 1920’s house, built using externally rendered walls beneath a tiled roof, and has since been extended and remodelled by the present owners to create versatile and generously proportioned accommodation.

Whilst some further work is required in order to complete the renovations, this presents an excellent opportunity to provide an individual personal touch to the finished design.

From its elevated position the house has superb unspoilt easterly views across the valley, with the sea also visible in the distance, and takes full advantage of the early morning sunrise and afternoon light.

A real feature of the property are its extensive and part-landscaped 3.3 acre grounds which include a generous stable block (with tack room, water, power and light), 2 outside stores, a separate 0.9 acre field and tranquil woodland.

Subject to Local Authority consent, there may also be potential to earn a useful income by converting the stables into a self-contained holiday letting unit (already with its own vehicular access) and by utilising the fields for an outdoor ‘glamping’ woodland experience.

Although in a rural location in the tiny hamlet of Harcombe, the property is not remote. The coastal town of Lyme Regis is about 2.5 miles away with village facilities close by at Uplyme and some 3 miles inland is the market town of Axminster with a mainline railway station (Exeter to Waterloo).

Lyme Regis is a picturesque coastal town noted for its many character buildings, centuries old Cobb Harbour and unspoilt surrounding countryside. The town centre provides good shopping facilities for day to day needs and the larger centres of Taunton and Exeter are both about 28 miles away. In Lyme Regis there is also a sailing club, bowls, golf course, theatre and numerous local societies.

The town is situated on the beautiful and unspoilt Devon and Dorset ‘Jurassic Coast’ awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in December 2001.

There is pathway leading down from the garden to a hardstanding stable area (see OS plan) with 4 good quality timber built stable enclosures, a Tack Room and 2 good sized timber outbuildings all of which have their own access via an entrance gate to a private lane leading to Harcombe Road.

Japanese Knotweed - We understand that there is a small area of Japanese Knotweed present at the property which is approximately 17 metres away from the house - please see OS Plan. In recent years the vendor has had professional spraying carried out and has personally carried out remedial spraying.
