This substantial four-bedroom residence occupies a prime position on Moorcourt Close, a quiet cul-de-sac located in the desirable west side of Sidmouth, roughly half a mile from the town centre.

Aptly named Seascape, as it has striking sea and coastal views, this Tudor Revival house was designed by the renowned architect R.W Sampson and has retained much of its character from when it was built in the early 1900s.

Inside, the house is presented to a high standard and has a delightful dual-aspect sitting room with a fireplace and direct access to the rear garden. The dining room has a lovely bay window, a focal fireplace and fitted bookshelves on both sides of the chimney breast. The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has a good variety of cabinets, a range-style oven and several integrated appliances.

An open staircase leads to the first floor, where there are four double bedrooms. The principal and main guest bedrooms benefit from striking views of the sea as well as ensuite shower rooms. The two other bedrooms have lovely countryside views and there is also a family bathroom on this floor.

Outside, the rear garden offers a high degree of privacy and backs onto open fields. A paved pathway leads around the perimeter of the house and paved steps lead up through tiered garden areas stocked with a variety of colourful shrubs, plants and fruit trees. A raised patio area provides the perfect vantage point to enjoy the beautiful garden and surrounding coastal and countryside views. A handy timber summer house sits in one corner of the garden.

To the front, a driveway leads to an integral garage and a paved pathway passes mature Trachycarpus palm trees screening the house to the front door. The house has the merit of a detached parking area approximately 50m away.
