Dunscombe Cottage is an imposing Grade II Listed house, with its earliest origins dating back several hundred years. Today the property offers spacious, extended accommodation retaining a wealth of period features, including two inglenook fireplaces, exposed timber panelling and beams, and a wonderful curved timber staircase. The property is presented in very good order throughout, with an impressive bespoke Farmhouse style kitchen, three modern bathrooms and oil fired central heating. The cottage stands on very well kept, manageable grounds and enjoys a southerly aspect to the rear, with a stunning view to the west over neighbouring fields.
Situated in a delightful, semi-rural location on the outskirts of Salcombe Regis yet within two miles of Sidmouth, the property is also only a short drive from the A3052 (Exeter – Lyme Regis Road) and as such, an ideal location for those looking for rural living with added convenience. Weston Beach is under a mile’s walk away and the Donkey Sanctuary is within half a mile. The neighbouring town of Sidmouth offers a broad range of amenities, including numerous independent shops and High Street chains, Waitrose, a Theatre, Cinema, modern Health Centre and Regency Esplanade, together with Sports Clubs including rugby, cricket and an eighteen hole Golf Course. Regular bus services are also within half a mile’s walk.
From our office on the High Street in Sidmouth, proceed up the road to the mini-roundabout, continuing straight ahead and turning right into Salcombe Road, opposite the Radway Cinema. Follow the road over the bridge and around to the left, taking the next right onto Salcombe Hill Road. Follow the road for a little over one mile, turning right signposted Salcombe Regis. Follow the road down to the Church, bearing left and then taking the first right onto Dunscombe Lane. Follow the lane for a little over half a mile and Dunscombe Cottage will be found on the right hand side.
