A beautifully situated property with a delightful garden of close to half an acre located in a pretty valley within a small community of individual properties. Harcombe is a little tucked away hamlet within just 3 miles of Axminster. The seaside town of Lyme Regis is just a little further at around 3.5 miles to the south. The property is a detached single storey dwelling offering three bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, hallway, lounge with multi-fuel stove, kitchen and utility room. Situated a short distance away in the garden is a self-contained timber garden lodge which provides further bed-sitting room, kitchenette and shower room. The lodge has been used to provide an income for the owners through AirBnB but could be used for overflow accommodation or would make an excellent art studio. The outlook from both house and lodge is stunning, with views out to the partly wild garden with stream running through, which is a haven for wildlife. The property benefits from double glazing, oil fired central heating (to the main house) and multi fuel stove, with independent electric heating to the lodge. This is a most unusual property, the likes of which are rarely available on the open market.
The seaside resort of Lyme Regis, famed for its historic connections and the Cobb Harbour remains popular with visitors. The town retains much of its original charm and a good variety of shops restaurants and places of interest to visit. There are many events throughout the year including a good range of live music and for those who would rather be on the sea, there are sailing and gig rowing clubs. This expanse of coast line has been designated a World Heritage Site and is affectionately known as the Jurassic coast. Bus services run regularly from Lyme Regis to the local towns of Bridport and Axminster, where the station runs a mainline service to London Waterloo and Exeter. The property is very well placed for proximity to the highly regarded Woodroffe Secondary School, which has been described by Ofsted as `outstanding`, with many house hunters seeking an address within the catchment area. Alternatively, the Colyton Grammar School, which is constantly ranked as one of the best in the country is approximately 8 miles to the west.
