A spacious detached two storey residence of approaching 3500sqft, conveniently situated in the delightful fishing village of Beer: Regional winner of Channel 4's Village of the Year competition in 2018
Stonecourt stands in a landscaped garden which is set on a number of levels providing shelter and some interesting terraced areas including a circular patio affording views over Beer.
We understand Stonecourt was constructed in the 1970s and typically built with part stone and part mellow brick exterior elevations under a concrete tiled roof with the benefit of low maintenance double glazed windows, as well as a recently installed double glazed front door with side panels.
The property has undergone many improvements over recent years undertaken by the present vendors, all of which combine to create the most appealing and well presented home we find today.
The accommodation is surprisingly spacious and extends to 2,720sq ft over two floors. Worthy of particular note is the first floor accommodation which comprises a large room currently used as a guest sitting room off which is a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and a useful study thus offering the property a great deal of adaptability.
The kitchen and breakfast room have been re-fitted with granite worktops and Bosch appliances. The property also has modern fully tiled en-suites and bathroom and the two principal bedrooms both have fitted wardrobes.
On an energy note there is a modern Worcester Bosch boiler (installed in 2015) as well as Smart meters fitted for the monthly billing of energy used.
The property is approached from Southdown Road to a private drive (shared by three properties) that leads to Stonecourt where there is a tarmacadam parking and turn around space in front of the very large integral double garage.
The gardens are laid on a number of levels, recently re-fenced, and have areas of lawn, summerhouse, a terraced area with rockery and water feature, and is well stocked with plants and shrubs.
There are also two useful garden sheds and a greenhouse, and on the higher level is a recently created area of garden with a circular paved patio which commands lovely views over the village to the countryside beyond.
Stonecourt is situated in a convenient location enjoying a slightly elevated position commanding views over the village. The property is within just a few minutes walk of the centre of the village and the wide pebble beach opening onto Lyme Bay.
Beer nestles on the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline and is a typical example of an unspoilt Devon fishing village with a wealth of history attached to it. It has a past steeped in tales of sea faring and smuggling and the quarried stone in Beer has been used in many historic buildings such as Exeter Cathedral, St Paul's Cathedral, and parts of Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London. It has a variety of shopping and recreational amenities which include restaurants, public houses, post office, galleries, primary school and sailing club.
Glorious country and coastal walks are close at hand over the myriad of footpaths in the near vicinity and the popular South West Peninsular Coastal Path stretches (for some 80 miles) along the south coast from which there are dramatic views over this ancient coastline.
Some 8 miles to the West is the larger Regency town of Sidmouth which is one of East Devon's premier coastal resorts. It has beautiful parks and walks and an extensive variety of shops including an out of town Waitrose. It also
has a cinema, theatre and range of sporting facilities.
The city of Exeter is approximately 25 miles to the West and has an excellent shopping centre, sport and leisure facilities, university, main line rail link to London (Paddington) and international airport.
Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools is also within easy reach, being about 4.5 miles away.
Proceeding along Fore Street in Beer towards the beach turn right by the Dolphin Hotel and follow this road into Clapps Lane taking the third turning on your left into Southdown Road, and then immediately on your right will be found the driveway leading to Stonecourt.
