This charming cottage, sited in a favourable location in Sidmouth town centre, was originally built by Kevin McCabe, a local cob specialist who has been featured on the popular television show Grand Designs.
It is a most attractive detached cottage which is constructed with mainly rendered elevations under a slate roof.
Currently, 'Heydons House' is being used as a successful holiday let, but would work equally well as a private residence.
Inside, the dwelling offers well-presented accommodation and retains several interesting features, with glimpses of exposed beams, along with 'cottage style' windows, traditional doors and charming feature fireplaces.
On the ground floor, there's a useful cloakroom and a spacious living room with a beautiful fireplace and parquet-style flooring giving the whole space a clean but cosy look. The adjoining kitchen has been designed with a fresh, modern look in mind, and it features built-in appliances, a fitted Aga and there are French doors that open to the rear courtyard garden.
The first floor offers deceptively spacious accommodation, with the master bedroom benefiting from an adjoining dressing room or occasional bedroom and an en-suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Outside, there is a private courtyard garden with established palm trees, a seating area and a large patio. Benefiting from a favourable south-easterly aspect, this is a wonderful place to be when the sun shines.
To the front, there is an integral single garage.
