A very attractive semi-detached thatched cottage in a favoured location with garden, parking space and large two-storey attached barn/workshop.
No. 2 Birds Nest Cottages has been under the ownership of the same family for some 60 years and therefore, this is a rare opportunity to purchase this exceptionally attractive cottage. The property has benefitted from redecoration and rethatching works approximately 4 years ago and, therefore, is presented in good order.
2 Birds Nest Cottages is a semi-detached period property with origins dating back certainly to the early 19th century, however, it was extensively rebuilt and modernised in the 1970's and could now benefit from some further updating throughout. The property has copious amounts of potential, most notably with the large attached two storey barn/workshop/garage which could be converted into additional living accommodation in whole or in part (subject to necessary consents) but is, as it stands a wonderful asset to this central village property, offering parking for several vehicles along with the parking space to the front of the double wooden doors.
A further fabulous asset is the 'secret' garden which is slightly removed from the property and accessed via a decorative wrought iron gate from Questant Lane adjacent, complimenting the sunny courtyard garden to the rear of the property.
The property is situated on the corner of Sid Road and Questant Road with a parking space to the front of the garage on Questant Road. There is a courtyard garden to the rear of the property and also a beautiful garden just across the lane which is laid to lawn with established borders and a summer house a wonderful and peaceful retreat.
2 Birds Nest Cottages is situated on the eastern side of the regency coastal resort of Sidmouth in a conservation area, approximately ¾ mile from the town's amenities which can be accessed via a delightful river walk along the river Sid through parkland known as The Byes.
Sidmouth offers a good range of independent shops, small theatre and cinema and is located on the World Heritage "Jurassic" coast at Lyme Bay with an out of town Waitrose store just a couple of miles away.
The bustling town of Honiton is some 10 miles distant and has a direct main line rail link to London (Waterloo). The County town of Exeter is approximately 15 miles away to the west and has an excellent shopping centre, theatres, cinemas, main line rail link to London (Paddington), small international airport and M5 motorway access.

From the centre of Sidmouth proceeding Southwards to the sea, turn left immediately opposite the Radway cinema into Salcombe Road and follow this over the River Sid around a sharp left hand bend and continue into Sid Road. Follow this road for approximately a quarter of a mile, passing Sid Lane on the left and then Sidgard Road on the right and the property will be found on the left hand side opposite the large grassy verge.
