Boughfield stands in what is regarded by many as the premier location in this delightful Regency coastal town. The location is slightly elevated yet sheltered, and the property enjoys an attractive aspect in this quiet and much sought after road. Standing in mature gardens and grounds of approximately an acre, Boughfield stands well back from the road in a garden which is beautifully presented and profusely stocked with a myriad of colourful plants and shrubs which create a most attractive and apt setting.
Sidmouth boasts many independent shops as well as the usual multiples including a large Waitrose store. In addition to the delightful esplanade and long beaches about 0.75 mile away, Sidmouth offers an array of leisure facilities including a cricket pitch overlooking the sea, croquet, tennis, sailing, indoor pool and beautiful scenic walks along the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. There is also a good mixture of schooling both private and comprehensive, as well as the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of Englands top mixed state schools, which lies about 10 miles to the east. The market town of Honiton is about 10 miles to the north and offers a variety of shops and recreational amenities as well as a main line rail link to London (Waterloo). Exeter the county town, is some 16 miles distant with an excellent modern shopping centre, theatres, restaurants, beautiful Cathedral, along with comprehensive transport links including direct access to the M5, main line rail link to London (Paddington) and international airport.
4 Boughfield is a delightful garden apartment and one of four apartments in this Edwardian conversion in the favoured Bickwell Valley area of Sidmouth. The apartment is beautifully presented to an exceptional standard, having been fully refurbished and re-designed by our vendors over the past 6 years.
The comprehensive schedule of works included cavity wall insulation, new combination boiler plus the addition of a stunning pitched, glazed roof conservatory with doors to the private terrace. The kitchen and bathroom have been refitted to a very high standard and thoughtfully planned to maximise space and storage with the additional benefit of a separate utility and storage cupboard. The apartment has also benefitted from additional sound proofing with suspended acoustic ceilings and a replaced pitched and tiled roof over the kitchen with a velux window to allow for extra natural light.
The property is approached up a long driveway which runs alongside the beautiful tended gardens to a communal parking area. The gardens which extend in total to just under an acre are divided between the properties and flat 4 owns a sizeable share of the grounds. This includes a terrace leading from the conservatory with a circular paved area surrounded by pebbles and steps down to two areas laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders and a garden shed.
