Relax in complete privacy at the beautifully restored Rousdon Estate water tower

Located on the border between Devon and Dorset, The Water Tower is an exceptional luxury holiday home on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. Boasting a magnificent indoor heated pool and an impressive media room, this unique property is a tale of two halves. Situated on the 350 acre Rousdon Estate, the former water tower began life in the late 19th Century, accompanied by two large tanks. The historic site is now enjoying a new lease of life, after undergoing an incredibly sympathetic transformation into an exclusive, one-of-a-kind holiday home. Occupying the private north west corner of the estate, The Water Tower is extremely secluded, with sweeping farmland views and a myriad of rural country and coastal walks nearby. For the adventurous types, there’s even access to the remote private estate beach at Charton Bay.

Moments from the coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Seaton, The Water Tower will sleep 10 guests across five sumptuous bedrooms – three en-suite and one ‘Jack & Jill’ shared en-suite – located within the footprint of the original water tanks. The proud central tower has been partially reconstructed in a respectful nod to the plot’s former function, creating a grand entrance hall. An open plan kitchen, living and dining area floods with natural light from a vast wall of floor-to-ceiling sliding doors that open out onto the spacious patio, expanding the already generous social space. Complete with a Sonos music system, hosting a special occasion or reunion of friends couldn’t be easier. Further respite can be sought in the Games Room, complete with PS4 – a veritable rainy day den.

With an indoor heated pool worthy of a luxury spa, a sleek steam room and a unique games room, the lower ground floor at The Water Tower is the ultimate playground for all ages.

Swimming pool

Taking up most of the lower ground floor, The Water Tower’s expansive pool is set to a balmy 29° C at all times. The neutral tones, comfortable loungers and calming atmosphere are evocative of a luxury spa, and it’s the perfect space for relaxation. However, if you’re after a more lively environment, the Sonos speakers and multi-coloured in-pool lighting transform the space in seconds. What’s more, at 1.2m deep, the pool is ideal for leisurely swims, so the fitness enthusiasts can keep up with their exercise routines on holiday.

Changing Room, WC and Steam Room

Just to the side of the pool is a dedicated changing room and WC. With a dual-purpose shower and steam room, this space is both practical and luxurious.

 

Games Room

The well-equipped games room is tucked away in the corner of the lower ground floor. With a glass wall overlooking the pool, it’s the ideal spot to watch the rest of the party whilst relaxing on the sofa. With a 75 inch Samsung Smart TV, full Sky package, PS4 and surround sound, everyone will be kept entertained. There’s also a football table for added fun.

Utility Room

You’ll find a handy utility room next to the changing room on the lower ground floor. With additional storage, a washer and a dryer, you’ll be able to catch up on mid-break washing with ease.

Spread across two wings are five double bedrooms as well as three en-suites and a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom.

Entrance Hall

The second you open the grandiose front door and step inside The Water Tower, you are struck by the arresting beauty of the architectural design. With detailed brickwork beautifully lit by spotlights and LED strips, and a view of the luscious garden through an expansive archway, the grand entrance hall sets the tone for the rest of the property perfectly. A nod to the building’s fascinating past, the brick detailing mimics the original tower that stood in its place, between the two water towers.

Sitting Room

The bright and contemporary sitting room occupies the far corner of the open plan living area. Bedecked with cushions, the spacious sofas provide a comfortable space to gather around the LG curved Smart TV, set up with a full Sky package. The sleek electric fire is cut into the far wall, and creates a warming ambiance with just one touch of the remote.

Dining Room

The exquisite custom-made dining table sits centre stage within the open plan living area. Comfortably seating ten guests, the table is beautifully lit by a shimmering low-hanging light. With Sonos speakers dotted around the room, your choice of music will set the tone for every meal.

Kitchen

Through the use of contemporary matt grey and gloss white, the modern kitchen blends tastefully into the surrounding interiors, and doesn’t detract from the detailed exposed brick walls. Finished to an extremely high standard, the kitchen is minimalist in style but not in function. With two Miele ovens, three warming drawers and a microwave, all neatly aligned on the far wall, there’s an abundance of space for cooking for a crowd. There’s also a four ring electric induction hob set in the middle of the central island, which invites socialising whilst cooking. The two dishwashers, full size fridge and half size freezer are also neatly concealed behind the sleek kitchen doors. Complete with a Nespresso machine and boiling water tap, this space has been designed with convenience and ease of use in mind.

Please note: guests with pacemakers should avoid using the Induction Hob as this can interfere with the device.

Bedroom 1

The first of five bedrooms, this beautiful room can be made up as a twin or super king. Designed in soft, glamorous tones and furnished with an abundance of cushions and soft lighting, this space invites immediate relaxation. With a wall-mounted TV and a Sonos speaker in the ceiling, it’s an ideal spot to take some time away from the group. The spacious en-suite boasts a stylish waterfall shower and large sink and mirror.

Bedroom 2

With two windows looking out across acres of fields, you could spend long, lazy mornings enjoying the serene view from the expansive super king bed. Alternatively, this room can be made up as a twin, depending on the group make up. There’s also a wall-mounted TV to keep you entertained. Almost a mirror image of the en-suite next door, this bathroom also features a spacious waterfall shower.

Bedroom 3

With its own en-suite and waterfall shower tucked away up a couple of steps, this beautifully styled room is decorated in soft bronze and cream tones. The patterned wallpaper and feature mirror add a unique character to the space. You’ll have the added flexibility of choosing whether this room is set up as a super king or twin, depending on your group make up. Just like the other bedrooms, the wall-mounted TV and Sonos speakers will help make this room your little haven.

Bedroom 4

Set in the opposite wing to the first two bedrooms, Bedroom 4 is styled in contemporary navy, black and brown. Trendy and opulent, this space can also be set up as a twin or super king.

This room shares a ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom with the bedroom next door, which features a sumptuous free-standing bath tub and separate waterfall shower.

Bedroom 5

This elegant room is styled in soft creams and pink, and boasts peaceful views across the estate. The glamorous dressing table is topped with a shimmering mirror, and adds a touch of decadence to the space. There’s also a wall-mounted TV, so you can shut yourself away and catch up on your latest programs. Again, this room would suit a couple or friends, as the zip and link bed can be made up as a twin or super king. The stylish ‘Jack & Jill’ bathroom is shared with Bedroom 4.

Additional Information

There are steps around the internal areas of the property and unfortunately it is not possible to fit stair gates. Access to the private beach at Charton Bay is challenging and uneven, so we’d only recommend this route to experienced and adventurous walkers. For families and those with limited mobility, the lovely Lyme Regis beach is just a short drive away. If you would like to check any specific information that may not have been covered in our property description, please call 01208 895570 to speak to one of our Property Advisors.
