19 Jul Edwardian elegance overlooking Dawlish and out to sea
Robert Williams, the Experts in Property estate agency in Exeter, is thrilled to offer for sale a beautiful Edwardian home in an elevated position overlooking Dawlish and with glorious views out to sea and the horizon beyond.
With its large, full-height bay windows, first floor balcony and sun terrace, this home is a local landmark sitting on the side of the valley above the pretty seaside town, just 12 miles from Exeter and the M5, and a 10-minute walk to Dawlish Town Beach, taking in Dawlish Lawn and the pretty Dawlish Water with its famous black swans along the way.
Having been lovingly and superbly restored, the elegant house still has plenty of its original Edwardian features including fireplaces, tiling, stained glass inner windows and a lovely staircase rising from the generous reception hall.
On the ground floor is an inner porch and welcoming hallway, three generous reception rooms, a study, kitchen/breakfast room fitted with shaker style cabinetry as well as a central island unit and Aga, rear hallway/store, utility room and a large adjoining room, which would make a great home office or orangery (subject to any planning permissions). A second staircase offers annexe potential and adds to the versatility of this fabulous property.
The central landing on the first floor runs from one staircase to the other and leads to four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master ensuite bathroom is impressive and the second bedroom has its own balcony overlooking the town and out to sea. There are two more bedrooms on the top floor sitting either side of a large central ‘lounge’ area, an ideal space for teenagers.
Immediately to the front of the house is a paved patio area and to the side is a sun terrace, on which it would be easy to while away many hours watching over the town and the water.
There is a BBQ area and pergola with a productive grape vine, and a driveway ascends from a parking area and double garage up to a car port. The rest of the gardens, which sit mainly to the front of the house, are terraced and thoughtfully landscaped with hedging, shrubs, a mature palm tree and steps leading up to the house.
Graham Coton, Associate Director of Robert Williams, said: “The Red House really is a jewel of a property – its Edwardian elegance combined with stunning coastal views and great location perched high above the pretty seaside town, make for a beautiful home just perfect for a family or extended family with enough space to keep the home and home working separate, or even to create an accommodation business, subject to consents.”
