Gateways is conveniently situated to the west side of Sidmouth town centre and is set in an attractive garden, the majority enjoying a southerly aspect. The house offers charming four bedroom accommodation arranged over two floors, with the ground floor offering three/four reception rooms, the sitting room, study and breakfast room enjoying a southerly aspect and giving access into the garden.
The four bedrooms are a good size, three having a fitted wardrobe and two enjoying a southerly aspect with a glimpse of the sea. There is also a bathroom and WC and in the roof space, there is a partially converted room, which has in the past been used as an occasional bedroom/hobbies room. However, this is only accessed via a loft ladder.
To the outside there are mature gardens surrounding the house on four sides, with the majority enjoying a southerly aspect, as does a patio seating area and the covered verandah.
Accessed from Knowle Drive, there is a driveway providing a parking space and access to a single garage.

Nearby, on Station Road and All Saints Road, there are regular bus services to the surrounding area. Sidmouth offers a comprehensive range of local and individual shops and there are lots of clubs, societies and sporting facilities including an Indoor Swimming Pool. Sidmouth also offers a Cinema, Theatre and ‘The Byes’, which is a delightful riverside walk and cycle track.
