This impressive two-bedroom apartment sits in Fortfield Terrace, a Grade II listed property that has a rich history dating back to 1793.
It was originally designed by Polish architect Michael Novelovski, and has accommodated many notable people of distinction in its time, including the Grand Duchess Elena of Russia and Elizabeth Barratt-Browning who stayed there during the 19th century.
The terrace occupies a most convenient location in Sidmouth and is just a few minutes walk from the Esplanade, seafront and town centre.
The apartment for sale can be found on the lower ground floor and benefits from a beautiful walled garden that is shared with the ground floor apartment above.
Inside, a substantial front door leads to a spacious reception hall. From here, there is a bright, airy and well-proportioned sitting room that has an attractive fireplace.
The stylish cream kitchen is large enough to accommodate a breakfast table and offers an excellent range of storage units.
There are two good-sized double bedrooms, one having mirror-fronted wardrobes to one wall and the other having an en-suite bathroom. In addition to the en-suite, there is also a separate shower room/utility.
Outside, to the rear is the walled garden which includes a level lawn and well-stocked borders containing numerous ornamental trees and shrubs. A gate in the rear wall opens onto a footpath, leading to Station Road.
This apartment also has a cellar for storage and a resident's parking permit.
