Anchorage House is an impressive detached bungalow situated a little over a mile from Sidmouth town centre and seafront, and within walking distance of ‘The Byes’ riverside walk and cycle path. Believed to have been designed by the renowned local Architect R W Sampson in the mid-1920s, the property offers very well presented, spacious accommodation. The sitting room and separate dining room benefit from a southerly aspect looking into the rear garden, whilst all three of the double bedrooms have an easterly aspect. There is a good size kitchen with a utility room and cloakroom/WC, with a main bathroom serving the bedrooms.
The bungalow stands on an attractive plot, with timber gates opening into a parking and turning area with a single detached garage. Gardens are predominantly to the south side of the property, mostly laid to lawn, with mature boundaries offering good screening and privacy. There are also views in an easterly direction towards Salcombe Hill.
