This elegant, Edwardian residence occupies a third of an acre plot in a prime, residential location on the boundary of the Bickwell Valley Conservation Area in Sidmouth.

The detached house is close to Muttersmoor, the golf course and is just over half a mile from the town centre and seafront. The four-bedroom property is understood to have been built in the late 1920s and today it is presented in good decorative order throughout.

Sidmouth Herald: The modern and stylish kitchen is a highlight

Beyond the entrance hallway, with its parquet flooring and excellent storage, there is a double-aspect sitting room with a bay window, a log burner and connecting doors to a separate living room. The modern and stylish kitchen is a highlight of the property with its open-plan layout, quality units, granite work surfaces and large breakfast bar. The room is bathed in natural light due to its south-westerly aspect and has sliding doors that open to a secluded patio making outdoor dining an easy option. The ground floor is completed with a larder, a pantry and a stylish shower room.
