An imposing detached residence situated on the lower slopes of Salcombe Hill and set in attractive gardens that extend to approximately two thirds of an acre.
Squirrels is situated in an exclusive private cul-de-sac of only a handful of other similar properties and enjoys a slightly elevated, yet sheltered location, on the eastern side of the town and enjoys views in a south westerly direction towards Bulverton Hill.
The grounds create a most colourful and mature setting for the house with large sweeping lawns and well stocked shrub borders. The rear garden enjoys a lovely south westerly aspect and has extensive paved patios that take full advantage of the aspect and are ideal for entertaining. The property is architect designed and was constructed approximately twenty years ago with rendered exterior elevations under a slated roof and has the benefit of double glazed Regency ‘gothic style’ windows which include large bay windows to the rear elevation.
The accommodation is both spacious and adaptable and arranged over three floors, the principle rooms all enjoying a southerly aspect. The total internal floor area exceeds 4,000 square feet. The house offers many features and worthy of particular note, are the impressive drawing room and master bedroom, both having a large bay window. The separate dining room has French doors leading into the garden as does the breakfast room which has a glazed vaulted ceiling and adjoins an attractively fitted kitchen. Gas fired central heating is installed throughout.
The property is situated with an almost level walk to Sidmouth town centre and is within a stone’s throw of The Byes, a delightful riverside walk and cycle track running alongside the River Sid. 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 at Lyme Bay. Within eight miles is the market town of Honiton where there is a main line 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 away.
From the Sidmouth office proceed up the High Street and straight over the mini roundabout turning right opposite the Radway Cinema 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.
