Watch Hill

This is the first in a series of 11 homes that will be featured on the upcoming Christmas Home Tour fundraiser being organized by the Saugeen Shores Chambettes and the Tara Curling Club.

This first location, the Myers Home, located on south Rankin Street in Southampton, was designed and built in a 1920s style beach home by Devitt-Uttley in 1987. It was - the first home that the company built. The yellow Victorian overlooks the Saugeen River and Southampton Harbour and, with 3,900 sq. ft., every room was carefully thought out to ensure that each has a view of the river, lake or both.

Its original owners, the Weichel family, named the home "Watch Hill" and it is meticulous in its construction with custom cherry and pine woodwork, a coffered wood ceiling, 14 inch baseboards, raised wood panels, trim mouldings, cabinetry and flooring.

"Watch Hill" now owned by Lorin and Michelle Myers will be decorated for the tour by August Skies Home Decor of Port Elgin and Shoreline Stone and Garden Centre.

The Tour is this Friday and Saturday (20th & 21st) ... Friday 6 - 9 and all day Saturday.
