This substantial five-bedroomed dwelling, sited on an equally generous plot of land, is overflowing with potential and could be a lucrative investment for a discerning buyer. Its location is first class, being in a highly desirable part of Sidmouth and conveniently close to the heart of the town’s action. It's unusual to find such a prominent home, set in just over a quarter of an acre of land, in such a prime location.
Its potential for development is plentiful. Outline planning permission has been granted to erect a separate new dwelling on the land that would lend itself as an easy-to-access home for elderly relatives or family members. From a development perspective, the house could be converted into three individual apartments, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The surprisingly large detached house was originally built in the 1920s and has been broadly extended in more recent years, with desirable results.
Inside, its rooms are bright, well-proportioned and incredibly spacious. The sitting room stretches to more than seven metres in length alone. Reception rooms include a comfortable home office, a tidy family room, a large dining room and a lengthy lounge. The kitchen is an attractive space and comprehensively fitted with traditional oak effect cupboards.
Upstairs, are five double bedrooms with three enjoying the benefit of an en-suite facility. A second staircase leads to a large loft space that could be converted into two further bedrooms if desired
Outside, there are pretty lawned gardens and an inviting patio that is perfect for outdoor dining on a warm summer's evening.
The property is approached via a pleasant brick paved driveway providing off-road parking for several vehicles and there is a detached double garage.
