Victoria House is positioned within an exclusive private cul-de-sac of only a handful of other similar properties. Sidleigh is positioned on the lower slopes of Salcombe Hill and is within half a mile of Sidmouth town centre and seafront. Within a few minutes’ walk is an entrance into The Byes, a delightful riverside walk and cycle track leading to the town centre.
The house is set in a larger than average garden, the rear garden offering a good deal of privacy and there is ample parking, along with an attached double garage.
The house offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors and, although now in need of some modernisation, it does benefit from having gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows which includes a feature bay window to the drawing room which has French doors accessing the garden. The drawing room is an impressive triple aspect room and there is also a separate dining room, snug, study and kitchen/breakfast room. There is a useful utility room which has a personal door leading into the garage and, off of the spacious reception hall, is a useful ground floor cloakroom. To the first floor, there are four double bedrooms all enjoying a lovely outlook with two of the bedrooms having en suite facilities. There is also a separate family bathroom.
From the first floor landing a door accesses a further staircase which rises to the roof space where there is a very large boarded area with window which this offers potential to create further accommodation (subject to the usual consents).
Sidmouth is one of East Devon’s premier coastal resorts with a good range of independent shops, national chains, a small Theatre and Cinema and is located on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast of Lyme Bay. Within eight miles is the market town of Honiton where there is a mainline rail link to London Waterloo. Exeter Airport with its national and international connections is approximately eight miles away and the Cathedral City of Exeter and the M5 motorway is approximately thirteen miles.
From the Sidmouth office proceed up the High Street, straight over the mini roundabout and opposite the Radway Cinema turn right into Salcombe Road. Continue over the River Sid following the road around to the left and continue for approximately a quarter of a mile passing Brownlands Road on the right hand side. Within a few hundred yards, the turning to Sidleigh will be seen on the right hand side. Take the left hand driveway and Victoria House will be seen on the left hand side.
