A superbly presented ground floor garden apartment located in a magnificent R.W. Sampson designed residence in the prestigious Bickwell Valley.
4 Boughfield is a superb ground floor apartment which is located in a magnificent J.W. Sampson designed residence built in 1912. It sits in the prestigious Bickwell Valley in superb, manicured grounds of about an acre, a share of which is private and adjoins the apartment.
The accommodation is of exceptional quality and has been comprehensively refurbished and renovated over the past decade. Worthy of particular mention is the superb semi-vaulted kitchen with integral appliances, which opens into the glorious sun room which is a room in which the owners spend the majority of their time, having wonderful views over the gardens, Bickwell Valley and glimpses of the sea in the Autumn/Winter months. The beautiful sitting room is of good proportions and has a large walk in bay window, also with fabulous views. This room has an oak style fireplace with a living flame gas fire.
Gardens & Grounds.
Boughfield sits well back from the road and is approached over a long driveway which runs alongside the beautifully tended gardens to a communal parking area where number 4 has space for one vehicle. The gardens, which extend in total to just under an acre, are divided between the properties and Apartment 4 owns a sizeable share of the grounds. This includes a terrace leading from the conservatory with a further circular seating area and steps down to two areas laid to lawn with mature flower and shrub borders and a garden shed.
Sidmouth is East Devon's premier coastal resort and has a long esplanade with wide pebbled and sand (at low tide) beaches, and is situated on the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. There are some beautiful walks along this stretch of coastline over the myriad of public footpaths, which include the South West Peninsular Coastal Path which runs along the whole of the Devon coastline.
The town itself has many beautiful parks and a shopping centre with a great variety of independent shops and boutiques, as well as the usual multiples. There is also an out of town Waitrose store, cinema, theatre and range of sporting facilities including tennis courts, croquet lawn, indoor swimming pool, sports centre, golf club and a cricket pitch overlooking the sea.
The property is leasehold on a 199 year lease which commenced in February 2006 and owns a quarter share of the Freehold.
The service charge is currently £585 per annum (which includes the buildings insurance), half
of which is paid in December and half in June. The building has been very well maintained over the years and the exterior was redecorated in 2020.
Sidmouth lies approximately 9 miles from the busy market town of Honiton which has a main line rail link to London Waterloo. The Cathedral City of Exeter and Devon's County Town, is some 15 miles to the west with excellent shopping facilities, theatres, express rail link to London Paddington, M5 access and international airport.
