Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
An individual character coastal home enjoying a private elevated situation above the village of Beer with enclosed garden and full width covered decked veranda providing southerly views to the sea.

The Bungalow is an intriguing and private character home having been carefully developed from an original double bay fronted bungalow with sympathetic extensions providing additional and possible annexe/multi-generational living possibilities.

The result is a coastal home of considerable versatility with the period influences of the early 19th Century evident in the aforementioned bay windows, open fireplace and exposed brick detailing. The Sitting Room and Study lie either side of the original hall with double Bedroom at the rear served by a separate Bathroom. Fitted in bespoke cabinetry with granite work surfaces, the focal point of the Kitchen is a gas fired AGA performing supplemental heating and culinary duties. Linking the Kitchen with the outside is a Utility Room with further cabinetry and gas fired combination boiler. Also accessed via the Kitchen is a second Sitting/Dining Room which together with a ground floor double bedroom and en suite provides a separate self-contained 'annexe' suite of accommodation.

A spiral staircase from an ante room climbs to a useful 'occasional' Attic sleeping area with en suite cloakroom within one section of the first floor. A traditional staircase in the original part of the property rises to the principal double bedroom with sloping ceilings and an en suite shower room.

The property is conveniently situated on the elevated outskirts of the village being away from the bustle of the centre but within easy walking distance

 

One of the jewels of the Jurassic Coastline, Beer is a historic fishing village nestled between the larger coastal towns of Seaton and Sidmouth, a worthy finalist of Channel 4's village of the year 2018. Its maritime heritage is still evident today and it supports a lively local community with an appealing range of facilities and conveniences along its picturesque streets including a small supermarket, post office, doctor's surgery, church, restaurants, inns and several independent shops including a delicatessen. Beer is regarded as a truly special place to live and remains an unspoilt haven with some fine period architecture and a charming sheltered beach.

The town of Seaton, 2 miles to the East, offers a wider choice of facilities and is easily reached by car or bus, whilst the market towns of Honiton and Axminster both offer rail services to London Waterloo and Exeter to the West.

 

The Cathedral and University City of Exeter is 22 miles to the West and offers a comprehensive range of services with all the retail, leisure and cultural amenities expected of a county capital. To the East of the city is an international airport offering flights to a wide range of destinations.

The Bungalow is situated within fully enclosed private gardens and grounds enjoying an elevated setting nestled against the south facing slopes overlooking the village and the sea. Arguably, its most attractive feature is a covered decked veranda spanning the width of the property to the front providing a sheltered area to take full advantage of the coastal panorama. There are steps from this terrace down to the lane for pedestrian access into Beer itself and there is a useful workshop/storage space beneath the deck and within an 'under croft' area. To the rear of the property and sheltered by mature boundaries providing complete privacy is a filtered and heated swimming pool, sunk to a depth of 4'6" throughout. The pool is served by a detached timber 'pool hut' for changing/storage etc and steps climb towards the rear stone walled boundary where there are further timber stores and lawned gardens.

Also accessed from Berry Hill at the western end of the plot is a driveway/forecourt providing parking for three plus cars with pathway through the gardens to the rear of the property.
