Exmouth Journal: The house was built in the early 1900s and it has retained many features from this era

The substantial five-bedroom house was constructed in the early 1900s and it has retained much of its grandeur and original features from this era.

Inside, an elegant oak-panelled entrance hall with a sweeping staircase and full-height ceiling with a chandelier makes a strong first impression. This leads to three large reception rooms, all very individual and each with an ornate fireplace. The sitting room and study have a dual aspect, while the dining room has a lovely square bay window overlooking the rear garden. The kitchen has a classic look, having been upgraded in more recent years with a range of wood-fronted units, granite worktops and a Range cooker. Multiple storage rooms lead off from the kitchen including a utility and a pantry.

Exmouth Journal: The outside space measures around 0.77 acres

On the first floor, a large galleried landing leads to the five bedrooms. Ensuite bathrooms are attached to three of the bedrooms, while the remaining two rooms share a shower room. Two bedrooms have beautiful views over the town towards Sidmouth along the coast and out to sea.

Outside, the rear garden measures around 0.77 acres and it is beautifully landscaped and stocked with an abundance of mature plants, trees and shrubs that help to provide a high degree of privacy. There are two pleasant terraces, one adjacent to the house and the second with a striking vantage point overlooking Budleigh and the back of Peak Hill. A detached timber summer house and lower garden further enrich the outside space.

There is ample parking space on the driveway and there is a double garage.

The property comes with no onward chain.
