Finding a first class property in a highly desirable location usually sits at the top of most people's wish list when it comes to buying a new home. Yet this distinctive and elegant 1920s detached residence happens to be situated on one of Seaton's most sought-after roads, so ticks all the boxes.
It is understood that the handsome house was originally built for the manager of Beer Quarry Caves around a hundred years ago. Its traditional design includes several attractive features such as a front gable with bay windows and a turret to the west with windows looking towards the sea. Its first floor balcony is simply a perfect place to sit back, relax and take in the breathtaking views of the sea, while the equally stunning views of the Axe Valley Nature Reserve can be seen from the landing window.
Inside, the property has been sympathetically restored, displaying several characterful features and quality fittings. The formal living room has a beautiful bay window and a separate study, while the spacious dining room has quality parquet flooring and a turreted bay with a feature fireplace and splendid views out to sea. The bespoke fitted kitchen includes solid wood units with Corian work surfaces and a handy breakfast bar. On the first floor, there are four double bedrooms and two bathrooms with quality fixtures and fittings.
Outside, the landscaped gardens are laid mainly to lawn and are interspersed and bordered by colourful plants and mature shrubs. The large sunny terrace has a convenient outdoor kitchen area, making it ideal for al fresco dining. There's also a double garage and a charming garden room which is an excellent spot for entertaining guests.
