A substantial individual detached house with annex with south facing gardens and distant country views to the coast. EPC Band E.


Wishover is an attractive and substantial detached individual house with a separate annex occupying an elevated and peaceful location in a no through lane on the southern slopes of the National Trust Hardown Hill. The house is estimated to date back to the 1930s/1950s and has been substantially altered and extended over the years to include the building of a large double garage/workshop with an annex over. It is traditionally built with rendered and colour washed elevations.

The house would now benefit from general updating although there is oil fired central heating, oil fired Rayburn cooker range to both the main house and annex and UPVC sealed unit windows/doors.

Offering extensive and versatile accommodation, taking in distant views over Golden Cap and Langdon Hill and to Charmouth with Lyme Regis beyond.
