Full description

The property occupies a spectacular cliff top site to the east of the pretty seaside town of Sidmouth in East Devon. The house is approached from the small lane running up from Sidmouth to Salcombe Regis, via a National Trust lane and then its own driveway.

This unspoilt coastline is known as The Jurassic Coast and is so designated for the distinction of the geological landform. It forms the 95 miles of coastline from Exmouth in the west to Swanage in the east. Sidmouth is a well known town running alongside the beach. The town itself offers good everyday amenities including shops, restaurants, Waitrose supermarket, golf course, cottage hospital, as well as business opportunities. Inland, the unspoilt countryside is designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and runs up to the Blackdown Hills to the north. The county town of Exeter with its wider range of regional facilities including transport links, University and commercial activities is only 14 miles beyond Sidmouth.

Further development in the area is tightly controlled, with the coastline being designated a Coastal Preservation Area, much of the immediately surrounding land belonging to the National Trust and inland, the area of Outstanding Natural Beauty designation ensures that the beautiful surrounding environment is unlikely to be changed. From the house itself there are wonderful cliff top walks.


The property is a substantial home that makes the most of its cliff top location. It is set within its own mature gardens and is surrounded by National Trust land. The house is approached up a lane, across the adjoining land to a large turning and parking area. Off this, a forecourt leads to the carport and garage

A pedestrian access through a wrought iron gate leads up to the front porch. The ground floor offers plenty of space and light, with the principle reception rooms facing west and south. The luxurious indoor swimming is cleverly incorporated into the structure of the house, so it can form an integral part of the entertaining space inside. One wing of the house provides an additional reception room and bedrooms which make an ideal guest suite.

Upstairs, the main bedroom enjoys the best of the spectacular views, with the balcony making a superb vantage point to enjoy the setting sun. Outside the landscaped grounds provide a high level of seclusion and amenity for the house, with seating areas all around to make the best of the season, time of day and weather.

In all, this is a special property in an unspoilt and beautiful coastal area of Devon, offering spacious and well appointed accommodation.
