This bright and airy dwelling on Fortescue Road in Sidmouth has been beautifully updated by its current owners into a most charming, homely property. The three-bedroom house was constructed at the turn of the 19th century yet it has been sympathetically modernised without losing its original character.
Inside, from the entrance porch, a door opens into a light and spacious kitchen/dining room which has a modern country cottage look to it. A lovely white, oil-fired Aga sits at the heart of this room and is indeed a pleasant focal point. Also on the ground floor, there's a traditional lounge with a bay window and an attractive tiled fireplace. To the rear, there is an impressive breakfast/garden room that harmonises the indoors with the outdoors, creating a bright, welcoming and relaxing space. The room has a vaulted ceiling, large west-facing windows and sliding patio doors that lead directly into the garden.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. On this level, there are stunning views towards Muttersmoor from the rear of the property.
Outside, the large rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect, making it a perfect place to relax on a warm summer evening. There's a raised decked sun terrace, and a wealth of mature trees, shrubs and plant borders offering an abundance of colour throughout the year. Outbuildings include a timber garden shed, a studio/office and an insulated cabin.
