Woodlands Cottage occupies an elevated position to the west side of the Sid Valley and is set in good size, mature gardens which allow a great deal of seclusion and privacy. There are some lovely walks to Bulverton Hill nearby and although the property has a rural setting, it is only approximately three quarters of a mile from Sidmouth town centre and seafront, where there are an excellent range of services and day to day facilities.
We understand that the property originally formed part of the Balfour Estate, when the Golf Course was under the same ownership, and is understood to have been used by the courses’ greenkeeper.
In more recent years the property has been extended on more than one occasion and now provides a great deal of flexibility within the accommodation. There are three reception rooms to the ground floor, one currently being used as a study/hobbies room, although this could be utilised as a ground floor bedroom and has French doors leading into the garden.
The property offers many features, including a wood burning stove to the dual aspect sitting room, oil fired central heating and the windows have been replaced with uPVC double glazed units.
The grounds extend to in excess of half an acre and include a driveway providing parking and giving access to a timber double garage. There is also an additional parking bay. The gardens comprise of large sweeps of lawn, with adjoining well-stocked borders providing colour throughout the year and there are extensive patio areas adjoining the house. There is also a large timber workshop/store, along with a wood store and timber summerhouse.
