Sidbury House is a most imposing Grade ll Listed property and is situated within this popular and sought after East Devon village. Occupying a slightly elevated position, the property takes full advantage of its westerly aspect with lovely views over the village to the surrounding countryside.
The property is understood to have been re-built during the mid-nineteenth century, having originally been the vicarage. The property is now split into three units comprising a house and two self-contained flats. Flat 1 occupies part of the ground floor and benefits from having its own private garden. The majority of the garden is to the front elevation and includes a sweeping driveway and parking/turning area. There is also a timber garage, and within the garden there is a brick built barn, garden store and summer house.
This attractive ground floor flat is now in need of general modernisation, however does retain much character and charm and worthy of particular mention are the well-proportioned rooms and large sash windows. The flat also benefits from having gas fired central heating.
The popular village of Sidbury offers local amenities comprising a butchers/convenience store, public house, primary school and historic church. There is also a bus service to the surrounding area. The popular coastal resort of Sidmouth is within four miles, where there is an excellent range of amenities and facilities, as well as the popular Regency esplanade and seafront.

Continue along this road for approximately a mile and a half, and on meeting the A3052 at Sidford traffic lights turn right, then immediately left, signposted Sidbury and Honiton.
