Positioned towards the end of a private no through road, the property has a wonderful elevated position, with views towards the sea. Positioned so wonderfully close to Sidmouth centre it is however elevated above the hustle and bustle of the town.

The stunning Regency town of Sidmouth is positioned part way along the rolling coastline of East Devon, noted for its long esplanade, beaches and beautiful public gardens. The town has a range of independent shops and amenities, including a cinema and a theatre. Its recreational facilities include a swimming pool, sailing, cricket, rugby, tennis, bowls and croquet clubs, and a popular golf course. Sidmouth is within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is on the spectacular Jurassic Coast, a designated World Heritage Site.

The cathedral city of Exeter is an easy commute to the west and offers a wide range of facilities, as well as rail links due to its positioning on the Paddington and Waterloo lines. The city also has easy access to the M5 at Junction 30 and Exeter International Airport.


Built by the family of the owners in the mid 1970's, this unique home is positioned within the former kitchen gardens of Sidmount House, alongside the potting sheds and outbuildings of this former working garden. The bungalow has in recent years been used as a second home and let as a holiday cottage, so the property may be available with furniture etc, subject to negotiation.


This unique split level bungalow has large picture windows/sliding doors with views across the roof tops and trees to the sea, there is easy access from the parking area to the front door.

A large enclosed entrance porch leads to the hall with a few steps down to the main living accommodation which has two raised patios accessed from French doors and sliding doors. There is a kitchen fitted with a Range master cooker 5 ring hob as well as space for a fridge and a dishwasher, with a door on to a large utility room with fitted cupboards and on to the third double bedroom.

Back to the entrance hall there are large storage cupboards and access to two further double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and sink units. There is a family bathroom with a separate shower and an additional shower room.


The large plot of 0.6 acres offers considerable development opportunities. Planning consent was granted 7th Oct 2013 (Ref 13/1238/FUL) for a detached contemporary dwelling within the gardens to the north of the current bungalow. This planning consent has since lapsed, further information from the agents and on the East Devon DC planning website.
