Higher Manor Cottage is set in a beautiful garden, the majority enjoying a south westerly aspect. The property adjoins the impressive Balfour Manor Estate which has large parkland grounds and, therefore, gives Higher Manor Cottage a lovely semi-rural feel. Sidmouth town centre and seafront are approximately three quarters of a mile away, however, nearby along Station Road there is a bus service to the town as well as the surrounding area.
The property offers superbly presented accommodation arranged over two floors and retains much of its original character and charm. The ground floor offers flexibility with three reception rooms, all enjoying a dual aspect and there is an attractively fitted kitchen which is large enough to accommodate a dining table. There is also a ground floor cloakroom and adjoining the kitchen is a useful rear lobby which gives access into the garage
To the first floor there are three bedrooms, two enjoying a lovely dual aspect and one having a recently fitted en-suite shower room. In addition to this there is a separate bathroom with separate cloakroom alongside. Further features include gas fired central heating, a fitted gas fired Aga to the kitchen which provides hot water as well as cooking and the windows have been replaced with double glazed units.
Sidmouth offers a wide range of amenities and shopping facilities as well as the Manor PavillionTheatre, Radway Cinema, Sidmouth’s 18 hole Golf Course and the popular Waitrose Supermarket.
