This grand, three-storey residence occupies a prime position in a quiet, yet central part of Sidmouth, and is on the highly-favoured east side of the town, so takes advantage of any early evening sunshine.

The house is directly opposite The Byes, with its picturesque riverside walks, while the town centre and seafront are just a short stroll away.

Sidmouth Herald: Well-established gardens can be found at the rear of the property

The substantial, semi-detached dwelling, named Westlea, was constructed in the Victorian era, circa 1840, and has beautiful elevations. Typical of this era, the property retains much of its original character and charm which includes sash windows with two bay windows at the front. Splendid views across the town towards Peak Hill can be seen from the upper floors.

Inside, the reception hall makes quite the first impression with its beautiful turning staircase and oak flooring. This leads to a well-proportioned sitting room with a feature fireplace and a bay window with a lovely westerly aspect. The dining room has French doors leading into the garden, while the kitchen has a traditional look with a good range of units, granite worksurfaces, a Range-style cooker and a Velux roof window. A small study and a further reception room complete the ground floor.

On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a family shower room. The principal bedroom has built-in wardrobes, an ensuite shower room and it has lovely views across the town and towards The Byes.

Three double bedrooms can also be found on the second floor, all with stunning views, and a family bathroom.

Outside, well-established gardens sit to the rear of the property and include an expanse of lawn with adjoining shrub borders, extensive paved patio areas, a vegetable area and a timber greenhouse. Also at the rear of the house is a gravel parking area with space for four vehicles and a large, detached garage.

The front garden gently slopes down to Sid Road and has an area of lawn, a wealth of mature shrubs and a pretty lily pond.
