A charming country house, set in a prime position enjoying splendid views of the valley, with gardens and grounds in all extending to 3.12 acres. EPC Band E.


South Watch is an imposing detached country house which has been sympathetically extended by the current owners to create this unique and versatile family home.

As its name suggests, South Watch enjoys a southerly aspect and far-reaching views across the surrounding countryside. The property has a number of original features including fireplaces with a log burner in the kitchen, high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms which you would expect from a property of this era.

This charming detached hideaway is set in a prime position in the hamlet of Harcombe with Raymonds Hill a short distance north, having a Post Office and village store, whilst Uplyme, about 2 miles away, has further facilities including a Post Office/petrol station, church, school and village hall.

Lyme Regis, about 3 miles away, is part of the stunning Jurassic Coast which enjoys World Heritage Site status. The town has a good provision of day- to-day amenities such as banks, health centre, well regarded primary and secondary schooling, cinema and a charming independent theatre.


The flexible accommodation includes entrance hall, stunning farmhouse-style kitchen, dining room, conservatory, sitting room, playroom and cloakroom on the ground floor.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms, two with en suite bathrooms and a family bathroom. Steps lead to the top floor in the attic where there is a master bedroom, again with its own private bathroom.


The property sits within its own private gardens and grounds with four paddocks, formal gardens, purpose built stable block and woodland.

Approached by the lane via a private drive which extends to the side and rear of the house. There are mature gardens which offer two level sweeping lawns, please note there is small area of Japanese Knotweed which has undergone treatment.

Set down below the property sits the stable block with four horse boxes and tack room. Beyond the stable block are gates leading to the woodland and a sloping paddock. On the opposite side of the lane a gate leads to three other paddocks which are ideally positioned to enjoy the views.
