This four bedroom, 1920s period residence sits in a quiet location overlooking the picturesque scenery of The Byes in Sidmouth. Typical of a property of that age, it benefits from character features, high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms. Its sense of space has been enhanced further as it has been sympathetically extended with a double-storey extension to the rear.
Inside, the property is well-presented and arranged over two floors. On the ground floor, there's a bright and airy living room with a dual aspect and a simple yet effective feature fireplace. French doors lead outdoors onto a raised decked terrace. There's also a formal dining room with an attractive bay window and fireplace.
The extension houses a large kitchen/breakfast room, toilet and additional ensuite bedroom. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with warm oak units topped with contrasting dark work surfaces. There's access to the rear garden via the French doors.
On the first floor, there are four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom has an interesting vaulted ceiling, an ensuite shower room and a Juliet balcony from where it's possible to appreciate superb views across the valley There is also a modernised family bathroom.
Outside, a shared path runs along the side of the dwelling and provides access to the rear gardens. With a favourable westerly aspect, the garden is a bit of a showstopper as it stretches to around 200 feet in length and extends to the edge of the peaceful River Sid.
The garden is primarily laid to lawn with a range of mature trees, shrubs and plant borders offering a variety of colour throughout the year.
There's a raised decked sun terrace, and various outbuildings including a timber garden shed, summerhouse and greenhouse.
At the rear of the garden, steps lead down to a lower garden with a large deck and riparian rights to the River Sid overlooking ''The Byes'.
To the front, there's an attractive wide driveway with a resin base, providing parking for several vehicles.
