Situated in one of Sidmouth's prime locations and set in large beautifully maintained gardens, an exceptional detached house with an adjoining three bedroom lodge/annexe.


SUMMARY

Albanwood House was constructed in 1903, and designed by the renowned, local architect R W Sampson who was responsible for many of Sidmouth’s fine homes. Set in approximately three quarters of an acre, the house occupies a slightly elevated position and enjoys a lovely outlook into the Bickwell Valley. The town centre and Esplanade is within walking distance, where there is an excellent range of facilities and there are some lovely walks towards Muttersmoor nearby. Purchased by the current owners in 2000, the property was extensively altered and refurbished for use as a private house with an annexe/lodge attached. Prior to this the property was run as a successful residential home.

SUMMARY (CONT..)

The house enjoys a south and easterly aspect and is built to a very pleasing design, still retaining many of the original Sampson features. The accommodation to the main house is very spacious and beautifully presented, with the majority of the accommodation enjoying a delightful outlook over the gardens. The living space to the ground floor includes three well-proportioned reception rooms all having feature Minster fireplaces with the sitting and dining room both having bay windows. The kitchen/breakfast room enjoys a lovely dual aspect with French doors to the garden and offers a range of storage together with granite worksurfaces and built-in appliances. There is a separate utility room and ground floor cloaks/WC, the utility offering further storage and sink along with space for appliances.

SUMMARY (CONT..)

An impressive reception hall has the original staircase which rises through the centre of the house with the first floor having two large bedroom suites. The master bedroom has a large adjoining dressing room with extensive fitted wardrobes which originally would have been a further bedroom. A large family bathroom can be accessed from the dressing room or the main landing and comprises a bath, separate shower cubicle, wc and wash basin. Bedroom two has an en-suite bathroom and both bedrooms have original balconies. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, one currently being used as a study and enjoying a lovely southerly aspect with a view to the sea. This floor also includes a further family bathroom, storage and a walk-in loft area. Gas fired central heating is installed (boilers replaced 2021) and the majority of the windows are double glazed. The attached annexe/lodge offers three bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room along with an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. This has been used as a successful holiday let and would also be ideal for ancillary family accommodation.

OUTSIDE

The gardens are a real feature of the property, extending to approximately three quarters of an acre and enjoy a south, east and westerly aspect providing lots of privacy and interest. There are large areas of lawn and mature shrubs and trees and more formal flowerbeds adding lots of colour. Extensive paved areas adjoin the house to the south and west sides, ideal for entertaining and providing further privacy. There is a summerhouse which enjoys a southerly aspect and a useful workshop which provides further storage. The driveway runs through the gardens and opens up to a good size turning and parking area and adjoining Bickwell Valley Road is the original garage/store which measures approximately 3.45m x 5.5m.

Reviews

  • Once in a while, in this age of faceless call centres, you come across a gem of customer service. Parker's (at Backwell) were one such organisation. I'd wholeheartedly recommend them to sellers and buyers alike – the team represent the opposite of the poor rap estate agents get." Vendor - Backwell
  • Parker’s dealt with the whole process of selling our property. The valuation was a true reflection of market prices and we achieved a higher selling price than expected. Throughout the process the communication between Parkers and myself was excellent. In essence a very professional transaction very quick results selling and completing in about just over a month. I would recommend anyone to use these professionals." Vendor - Backwell
  • Parkers are very knowledgeable about the local area and were definitely the best local agent we saw when viewing various different properties. When we ended up buying our house through them, they were very easy to deal with and Lisa did a brilliant job at keeping us up to date with everything, meaning one less stress to worry about. Thanks to all!" Buyer - London
  • We used Parkers for the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one and have to say that they were very helpful, easy to work with and made the move a lot easier than I thought. They knew the exact kind of property we were looking for and we weren’t disappointed with what they found us. 5 stars from us." Vendor - Nailsea
  • I would highly recommend Parkers Estate Agents, their professional knowledge and experience of the local area and market is excellent. The service provided from start to finish has been exemplary, a house move can be difficult at the best of times, but the support and direction from the whole team removed the stress knowing the sale was safe in hands." Buyer - Bristol
  • The service provided by parkers was exceptional. The team were transparent and maintained regular contact with me throughout the process. From viewings to completion, Parkers worked hard to establish a sale." Vendor - Backwell
  • Just sold my house through Parkers estate agents in Backwell to the first viewer. Could not fault them from start to finish. Absolutely brilliant and thank you." Vendor - Backwell
  • I am writing to thank you and your excellent staff for your guidance and professional approach in dealing with the sale of our old home. From our initial instructions we were highly impressed with the preparation and speed of your response. Organising a series of viewings can feel very intimidating, but once again your guidance and preparation, even in the face of the COVID-19 restrictions, was both reassuring and sensitive to our circumstances." Vendor - Backwell
  • Brilliant service, everyone so professional and helpful. I have used Parkers in the past for letting and always had the same standard of service, would definitely recommend them to friends and anyone requiring their services" Landlord- Nailsea
  • I have used Parkers for many years and they have been very good at communicating and offering advice. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a helpful estate agent." Landlord - Backwell
