SOLD BY BRADLEYS - A superb detached R.W.Sampson house, located within a short, level walk of the town centre and sea front.

Sunglow was the first of a number of houses built in Sidmouth by the architect Robert William Sampson (1866-1950) for his own occupation. The house was built in 1899 and was initially named Wychwood Cottage. The name originates from the village of Milton under Wychwood, the village where Sampson's wife, Helen, was brought up.Perhaps the most interesting external feature of the building is the render panel set within the rear elevation. The decorative panel features the inscription "RWS & H 1899". Whilst date inscriptions are not uncommon, and occasionally they might include the initials of the person for whom the house was built, it seems particularly unusual to include the initials of partners - "H" of course standing for Helen, Robert Sampson's first wife.

Accommodation Offering spacious and flexible accommodation, the property has been upgraded by the current owners, retaining many character features such as high ceilings and picture rails, with quality fitted kitchen and bathroom suites. An entrance vestibule opens into a split level reception hallway, with doors leading to all principal rooms. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect with large bay window and attractive Victorian style fireplace. There is a formal dining room or second lounge, with large bay window overlooking the beautifully kept gardens in addition to an open plan kitchen dining room. The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with cream wall and base units and granite work surfaces over, whilst the open plan dining area has an attractive inset fireplace with wood burning stove. French doors lead out to the garden, with an internal door opening into a large utility with access to the cloakroom/WC and door to the rear.

A split level landing on the first floor has stairs rising to the second floor, where between the two levels there are five double bedrooms with three quality bathroom suites. The principal bedroom benefits from a dressing room and ensuite shower rooms, with superb views towards Salcombe Hill and the sea from the southerly facing windows.

Outside The property has vehicular access via Seafield Lane opening into an expansive car parking area leading to the detached double garage, with electric up and over door and stairs to a first floor store room. The gardens are a particular feature of the property and benefit from a southerly aspect, with a large level lawn having historically been designed as a tennis court by R.W.Sampson. The gardens are extremely well established, having a variety of well stocked shrubs, plants and trees providing colour throughout the seasons, with a timber summer house nestled within the plot to take advantage of the morning sun. Steps to the rear lead down to a pedestrian gate onto Seafield Road for easy access into the town on foot.
