This impressive Edwardian detached house offers well proportioned accommodation retaining many original features including panelled doors, skirtings and architraves, dado rails and coving. Now in need of some modernisation, the property represents an excellent opportunity to acquire a period detached house in this desirable location that can be improved and altered to suit. The house stands on a generous level plot with ample off road parking, a double garage, and a secluded garden to the rear. Architectural features strongly suggest that the property was designed by the renowned local architect, R W Sampson, whose buildings are greatly admired locally.
Convent Road is situated in one of Sidmouth’s most desirable locations. The seafront and town centre are approximately half a mile away, regular bus services around a third of a mile, placing the property within a convenient distance of all local amenities. These include numerous independent shops, High Street chains, supermarkets, including Waitrose, a Cinema, Theatre, 18 hole Golf Course and modern Medical Centre.
