This spacious Grade ll listed ground floor apartment occupies a convenient position within walking distance of Sidmouth`s town centre where there are an excellent range of facilities and amenities including regular bus services to the surrounding area, and of course the popular Regency Esplanade and seafront. The property enjoys a lovely south-westerly aspect and retains many original features including good size rooms with high ceilings, feature windows and French doors. To the west elevation is a balcony which runs the whole length of the building and to the south side is a covered terrace overlooking the gardens which are conveyed with this flat. The majority of the accommodation enjoys a south or westerly aspect and from the drawing room and bedroom two there are French doors giving access to the garden. Although the flat is now in need of a little modernisation it does benefit from having gas fired central heating.
Claremont is understood to have been constructed in 1827, and has since been converted into three stylish apartments which we understand took place during the 1960`s. This apartment benefits from having the main area of garden situated to the south side. There is also a garage and adjoining workshop and to the west side of the driveway is a further tree-lined strip of garden which runs down to Station Road, this is also conveyed with this apartment.
