A most attractive, substantial four/five bedroom detached house, set in beautifully landscaped gardens and enjoying lovely views across the valley to the surrounding hills.


Kiftsgate House was constructed in the 1950s, to a pleasing design and offers larger than average sized rooms. It is set in a small, residential cul-de-sac on the eastern side of the valley. The house offers spacious and flexible accommodation arranged over two floors and benefits from having gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows; the sitting room, dining room and two of the first floor bedrooms having large, feature bay windows. In more recent years a large conservatory has been added and this has a vaulted roof and French doors accessing the garden. The majority of the accommodation takes full advantage of the south-westerly aspect and views across the valley to Muttersmoor. The kitchen/breakfast room is attractively fitted and has polished granite work surfaces along with integrated appliances and adjoining is a useful utility room. There is also a ground floor bedroom/study, along with a separate shower room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms, one currently being used as a study and there is also a bathroom and separate shower room, both fitted with attractive white suites.

SUMMARY Continued

The house is set in beautifully presented, landscaped gardens and there is a large block-paviour driveway providing ample parking and this leads to a double garage which has a hobbies room/storage area above. The Sid Valley is surrounded by some beautiful countryside and forms part of the Jurassic Coast. The town centre offers an excellent range of facilities, including numerous independent shops and High Street chains, along with public gardens and excellent sporting facilities - which includes an eighteen hole golf course.


Sidcliffe is conveniently situated for Sidmouth’s town centre and seafront, which are within a mile. Within a few minutes’ walk via Sid Lane there is an entrance into The Byes, a delightful riverside walk and cycle track, leading to the town centre.


From our Sidmouth office on the High Street proceed straight over the mini roundabout, turning right opposite the Radway cinema into Salcombe Road and over the River Sid. Follow the road around to the left, continue for approximately half a mile passing Sid Lane on the left. The second turning left is Sidcliffe, and the house will be seen towards the end of the cul-de-sac on the right.
