This substantial, detached Victorian home occupies a delightful location on the western side of Sidmouth, less than a mile from the High Street and The Esplanade. Nestled within a private plot, the property is surrounded by partially walled gardens and has beautifully landscaped grounds.

Sidmouth Herald: The bright garden room forms the heart of the home

The house was originally built in the 1860s as part of the prestigious Balfour Estate, and today it still displays many period features, including ornate gable trims, moulded ceiling cornices, and high ceilings, which add to its charm and character.

Inside, the property is presented to a high standard having been thoughtfully improved and subject to various upgrades in recent years. The sitting room is a bright reception space with a focal electric coal effect fire. The adjoining dining room has a delightful outlook over the front gardens and glazed French doors that lead into the garden room. This bright and airy versatile room has been the heart of the home since its construction in 2014, with its tall windows and motor-operated skylights offerings panoramic views of the gardens, truly bringing the ‘outside in’.

Sidmouth Herald: The kitchen is sizeable enough to accommodate a table and chairs

The stylish kitchen/breakfast room has been subject to a tasteful upgrade in recent years and now features an extensive range of cream-fronted, shaker-style units with composite work surfaces. A study, that would work equally well as an occasional bedroom, completes the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are three generously proportioned bedrooms, each maintaining the property's signature high ceilings and picture rails. The principal bedroom is particularly spacious and benefits from views of Muttersmoor and glimpses of the sea, and an ensuite shower room. There is also a family bathroom on this floor.

Outside, the gardens surrounding the property have been beautifully landscaped and feature a large patio, raised beds, a pond and water feature, a variety of established shrubs and plants, a well-maintained lawn and a magnificent 40' Victorian greenhouse.
