A quintessential stone period house under a thatched roof set in grounds of about an acre with ample parking, double car port and detached barn for storage.


Watercoombes is a fine detached period house understood to date back to the early 19th Century with later additions. It has attractive hamstone elevations under a thatched roof. Worthy of it's Grade II listed status with many period features such as exposed ceiling beams, flagstone flooring, and inglenook fireplaces, yet enjoying a modern kitchen extension with vaulted breakfast area overlooking the gardens. On the ground floor are four reception rooms, shower room, kitchen with utility and breakfast room- a former attached garage has been converted into an artist studio with hidden spiral wine cellar under the floor, giving capacity to store a significant wine collection in a temperature controlled environment.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, a family bathroom serving two bedrooms whilst the master has a modern ensuite bathroom and dressing room. An occasional fourth bedroom can be created in the large galleried landing or used as an office space.

Outside the current owners have created wonderful gardens, carefully curating areas for wildlife to thrive, with a pond, and wild bog garden, a coppice of birch for shade loving wild flowers and many established ornamental, native and fruit trees. A detached timber framed carport gives under cover parking for two cars with a very useful attached barn/store for garden implements and machinery.


The property has mains drainage, electric and is serviced by propane gas, with a recently installed, efficient boiler producing much cleaner heating than oil.


West Milton can be accessed from a number of directions, but heading North from Bridport Town Centre on the A3066 cross straight over the Gore Cross roundabout and take the next right hand turning onto Townsend Way following Mangerton lane for about 2 miles. On entering the village passing houses either side of you, you will see a turning to your left, take this turn and the property will be found a short way on your right hand side. Please feel free to park on the driveway on your right hand side.
