With a stunning setting and a name like Green Gables, one could argue this delightful property originates from a wonderful piece of fiction. Yet there's nothing imaginary about this Grade II Listed residence, which sits in a convenient spot on All Saints Road on the fringe of Sidmouth town centre.
The property was once a hotel and is now divided into separate dwellings, with the two-bedroom, ground-floor apartment being up for sale. Built in the early 19th century the building has been altered and modernised over the years, yet it has retained several characterful features such as its stucco facade and steeply pitched gables.
Number 2 Green Gables enjoys private access from the front that opens onto a large internal porch. This leads to a well-shaped and generous sitting room that despite its many qualities, it is the beautiful bay window with a southerly aspect that steals the show. From here, French doors open to a covered verandah outside.
A dual aspect study/home office is accessed from the sitting room, while the nearby kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a modern range of units including integrated appliances. The apartment benefits from a modern family bathroom and two double bedrooms, with the master bedroom having a quality fitted shower room.
Outside, the communal gardens at Green Gables are well-maintained and enjoy plenty of sunshine having an advantage of a southerly aspect. The gardens, largely laid to lawn, are landscaped with pretty borders bursting with well-stocked shrubs, plants and trees. Number 2 also has a private sunny patio area.
There is a parking space allocated to each apartment along with a visitors' parking area.
