Full description



Located in one of the most exclusive areas of Sidmouth on the western side of the town, this excellent double bedroom penthouse apartment, that has been beautifully updated by the present owner, has fantastic countryside and sea views from both within the property and its private roof garden/terrace. The apartment, one of five that were created in the most impressive and spacious period house known as Seaton Burn, also features a single garage (en bloc) together with additional parking areas, delightful communal grounds, gas fired central heating and double glazing. The internal accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall with dining/study area (that, in our opinion, has scope to be extended to create additional living/bedroom space), superb dual aspect living room, contemporary kitchen with utility area off, very good size double bedroom (again dual aspect) and bathroom with modern suite. The property has direct access to the private roof garden/terrace that, in addition to its wonderful sea and countryside views, offers the opportunity for alfresco dining. This lovely apartment would certainly appeal to a couple or single person looking for a main or second home or pied a terre. The views are just amazing. EER = E.


Seaton Burn is situated on the favoured and sought after western side of Sidmouth within the beautiful Bickwell Valley. Boughmore Road which is one of the most exclusive roads in Sidmouth features a range of individual and impressive detached properties and is in proximity to the golf course as well as local countryside walks to nearby Muttersmoor and Peak Hill whilst also being within 3/4 mile of the town centre and sea front. Located on part of the world famous 'Jurassic Coast', Sidmouth is a delightful, unspoilt, genteel resort town situated and along the lovely Sid Valley in East Devon. It has retained much of its Regency and Victorian charm and character and is well served by a range of amenities including both private and state schools, hospital, theatre and a town centre with a wealth of interesting, individual shops. Sidmouth is also well placed for transport links, lying less than 15 miles from Exeter and the M5 and within 10 miles of Exeter airport, Honiton and the A30, all of which provide links to London and many other parts of the country.
