A charming detached period cottage with studio annexe and paddock in a delightful country setting. EPC Band F


Coombe Cottage is a very attractive detached period cottage dating back over 300 years. Under the current ownership it has been subject to extensive enlargement and refurbishment, all sympathetically carried out to a very high standard. The accommodation is very well presented, good sized and enjoys great open views over the surrounding countryside. It benefits from oil fired central heating, bespoke fitted kitchen with electric oven/hob, hardwood sealed unit windows, oak framed conservatory, solid oak internal doors and a bespoke solid oak staircase. Lovely character style features include window seats, exposed stone, inglenook stone and beamed fireplaces and exposed beams. The studio annexe is equally ideal for a dependent relative, guest suite, someone working from home or a letting unit/airb&b. The very extensive gardens and grounds are a further feature facing principally South and West, together with a paddock, double garage/workshop and extensive off road parking.


There is off road parking for several cars and a detached double garage/workshop with the studio annexe located above. The formal gardens are very attractively laid out, very private and enjoy the views comprising a large crazy paved terrace, extensive lawns with sunken garden and ornamental pond. Further parts are terraced with vegetable garden and greenhouse. There are also two sheds (one a former Wendy house with power). Beyond is a large paddock with a line of trees and separate vehicle access onto a long sweeping gravel driveway with small orchard and log store.


The property enjoys a private setting with lovely long range country views in the hamlet of Harcombe. Uplyme, 2 miles away, has facilities including a post office/petrol station, church, school, village hall with cricket pavilion and play area, and a friendly pub with a delightful beer garden. About 3 miles away is the picturesque town of Lyme Regis, part of the stunning Jurassic Coast, offering convenience and bespoke shopping as well as good day to day amenities, a health centre, well regarded primary and secondary schooling, library, and a charming independent theatre. Lyme has a fantastic beach with golden sands, shallow waters and the famous Cobb. The whole area is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has excellent walking and riding opportunities.
