Situated in a beautiful location to the west side of town, a most attractive detached house set in a large mature garden and enjoying lovely views in a southerly direction over an adjoining National Trust meadow and beyond towards the sea.
This substantial detached house occupies a slightly elevated position within one of Sidmouth’s most sought after residential roads to the west side of the town. The property is understood to have been constructed in the early 1920s and was designed by the renowned Architects Sampson and Dingwall, who were responsible for the design of many large gracious houses built within the Sid Valley.
The house offers spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over three floors and is tastefully decorated throughout. All of the principal rooms take full advantage of the southerly aspect and all enjoy a lovely outlook over the grounds and beyond, over the National Trust meadow and to the sea.
The property boasts many features, including large bay windows to the drawing room and the sitting room, the drawing room also having two sets of French doors. The master bedroom suite also has a bay window with window seat and a door giving access to an attractive covered balcony. From the kitchen/breakfast room there are also French doors leading into the garden and the separate dining room enjoys lovely views towards Salcombe Hill. From the reception hall an attractive turning staircase rises to the upper floors, where the spacious landing areas give access to five bedrooms, the master bedroom suite having a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. In addition to this en-suite there are also two separate shower rooms and a cloakroom.
The house is set in a larger than average garden which extends to approximately two thirds of an acre. The majority enjoys a southerly aspect and takes full advantage of the views. To the lower side of the property there is a garage and parking area. (The garage is now in need of repair.)
Planning permission has been granted for the construction of a new detached double garage with new vehicle access to the higher side of the house. (Full details of the planning permission can be found on the East Devon District Council website.)
