Sidgard is a refined Victorian residence standing within formal landscaped gardens on the eastern edge of Sidmouth. This property of distinction benefits from a commanding position and has far reaching views towards Bulverton Hill and, over the town. Despite its appealing semi-rural feel, the house has easy access to Sidmouth's town centre and long Esplanade.
It is believed the property dates back to circa 1885, and more recently, it has been sympathetically restored and modernised by its current owners, who have paid close attention to detail to create a home that blends the old with the new.
Inside, several features characteristic of a property of this period are apparent, such as oak strip flooring, sash windows, original timber doors, architraves and high skirting boards. The appearance is further enhanced with ornate cornicing to principal areas and re-plastered walls and ceilings. An extensive re-wiring and re-plumbing programme has brought the property completely up-to-date too.
The sitting and drawing rooms are well proportioned and have attractive working fireplaces, while the classically designed kitchen has a convenient u-shape, high-quality integrated appliances, and an adjoining breakfast area.
In total, there are five generously sized bedrooms and four bathrooms with quality fittings.
Outside, the formal gardens, laid mainly to lawn, have been well maintained and are surrounded by a wealth of mature trees and shrubs which help to offer a high degree of privacy.
