About the property

A stunning and substantial period residence with a separate cottage and magnificent sea and coastal views.

Upcott House.
Upcott House is an imposing detached residence which was built in 1897 for a wealthy Naval Officer. The property was possibly designed by the renowned architect David Carr who was responsible for many of Beer and Seaton's fine Arts and Crafts residences and is of traditional construction with Beerstone quoined flintstone elevations under a predominantly tiled roof. It has a particularly handsome front façade with its central tile-hung gable, balcony and columned veranda, as well as its turret which has Beerstone mullion windows.

Upcott House has been the subject of a comprehensive and sympathetic programme of restoration and refurbishment and is now found in superb order with high quality fittings and features. The property retains a wealth of period character with elegant rooms with high ceilings, ornate cornicing and fireplaces etc. However, it has been designed with a modern approach and decorated in beautiful, neutral pastel colours.

The Lodge.
The property also benefits from the The Lodge which sits to the rear of the main house and did, at one point, provide garaging. However, this has also been converted to a further three/four bedroomed cottage with large games room/store attached. It has a variety of uses and adds a great deal of adaptability to the property. It would be perfect for those with large or extended family or as a holiday cottage which it has been run as very successfully in the past, providing a useful income.

Gardens and Grounds.
The property is approached over a long sweeping drive leading to a huge parking area. The gardens surround the property and are, in the main, laid to sweeping areas of lawn which have been well planted and have a huge amount of maturity.

To the front and side of the property are paved terraces which take advantage of the spectacular panoramic coastal and sea views. There is also a large lawned area of garden behind The Lodge which could provide a separate garden for the cottage if one so wished.

In total the grounds extend to about 0.9 of an acre.

Directions.
From Seaton, take the B3174 Beer Road (west) out of the town and continue for about 0.7 mile, turning left on a sharp left hand bend (in a wooded section of the road), onto Old Beer Road. Continue along this road passing a green on the right and Upcott House is the last driveway on the left hand side.
