The Cottage offers lots of character and was design by the renowned local architect R W Sampson, who was responsible for many of Sidmouth's individual properties.
The property retains much of its original character and in more recent years has been enlarged to the ground floor. This has provided a well proportioned, dual aspect sitting room which enjoys a south easterly aspect and has a brick open fireplace along with French doors leading into the garden. A further extension to the rear elevation has provided a good size study/family room which also enjoys a dual aspect and has a useful adjoining utility room.
The ground floor also offers a separate dining room and a kitchen which has a good range of storage units along with worksurfaces, tiled splash backs and there is a built-in split level electric oven, inset gas hob and space for further appliances.
The entrance porch and reception hall offer a good range of storage cupboards, the reception hall having an attractive turning staircase rising to the first floor. The three bedrooms all offer storage cupboards, the master bedroom having a lovely view across to Muttersmoor in a westerly direction. There is a separate family shower room and the landing provides a lovely outlook into the rear garden and has further storage cupboards and access to a good size roof space.
Some modernising is required, however, the house benefits from having uPVC double glazed windows and gas fired central heating which is served via a wall mounted gas fired boiler which is situated within the utility room.
(our vendors have had plans drawn and planning permission granted to remove the wall between the Kitchen and dining room).
The property is conveniently situated within a short stroll of local amenities and bus services along Woolbrook Road, with Sidmouth's town centre being approximately a mile and a half away and offering an excellent range of services and amenities along with the esplanade and seafront.
A feature of this property is the delightful gardens which extend to approximately a third of an acre and provide much interest and privacy. The front and rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn with extensive borders containing numerous ornamental tress and shrubs and there are mature boundaries. Within the rear garden there are two timber garden sheds, along with a seating area and toward the top of the garden is a productive fruit and vegetable area.
A driveway leads through the front garden and leads up to the house, providing lots of parking and there is a turning area, along with an open fronted, under cover storage area.
