Watcombe Corner: A well-balanced architect designed family home


About Watcombe Corner

Watcombe Corner is an architect designed 6 bedroom house. Originally built in the 19th Century, it was completely renovated in 2017 to create a well-balanced family home. There is a superb balance of space in the house over its circa 4000 sq.ft. 

At the heart of the home is the kitchen with a range of bespoke hand-painted units and white Corian work surfaces, a Total Control Dartmouth Blue 5 door Aga, island unit, log burner and good space for family dining, Siemens integrated dishwasher and original larder. 

The kitchen and hallway have a stone floor with steps that lead to the double aspect dining area. Off the kitchen, there is an office and boot room.

The drawing room is a wonderful addition to the house, with limed oak chevron wooden flooring, open fireplace with stone surround and mantelpiece, creating a classical reception room, which is enhanced by the 6 tall windows and doors giving the room a triple aspect. 

Connecting the drawing room with the rest of the house is the bespoke glazed hallway providing a range of uses.

To the first floor, there are 4 good sized bedrooms, including the impressive principal bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with underfloor heating. 

There are 3 bathrooms serving this floor, one with a lovely roll top bath. Two further bedrooms and a bathroom complete the 2nd-floor accommodation.


Double gates open to a gravel drive with parking for several cars. The walled garden is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders and hedging. 

There are some lovely mature fruit trees, including cherry, pear and apple. There is also a timber clad outbuilding which offers considerable storage.
