This week, we’ve chosen a lovely two-bedroom flat in Fortfield Terrace, being marketed by Harrison-Lavers Potburys, with a guide price of £450,000.

The house

A superbly presented top floor flat with lift access and stunning south-facing sea views. This is one of four flats within 6 Fortfield Terrace, and being on the top floor, offers uninterrupted views over the croquet and tennis lawns along with Sidmouth’s cricket field to the sea. Worthy of particular mention is the well-proportioned sitting room and main bedroom, both taking full advantage of the stunning views, the bedroom having an extensive range of fitted wardrobes. Adjoining the sitting room is a lovely dining area which has a serving hatch from the kitchen along with its own access from the reception hall.

The kitchen and separate shower room are both beautifully fitted, the kitchen having a good range of storage along with Corian worksurfaces and a built-in split level double oven, inset electric hob and integrated dishwasher and washing machine. The kitchen and shower room both have a pleasant outlook to the rear aspect, as does the second bedroom which is of a good size and is extensively fitted with an excellent range of fitted wardrobes, cupboards and drawers.

The spacious living room

The accommodation is wrapped around a good size reception hall which has fitted storage cupboards, along with a drop-down ladder accessing an insulated and partly boarded roof space.

The flat also benefits from gas-fired central heating (electric heater in Bedroom 2), the windows have been secondary glazed and the accommodation is neutrally decorated throughout, as are the floor coverings.

The building is approached via a most attractive Georgian entrance with double doors, and fan light above, opening into a spacious communal entrance hall which has allocated storage cupboards along with a passenger lift serving the first and second floor flats only. There is also a security entry phone system.

The residents of Fortfield Terrace benefit from a permit parking scheme with two permits per household.

The terrace is situated within a short walk of the town centre and seafront, along with regular bus services which can be found at The Triangle. The town offers a broad range of amenities, from numerous independent shops and High Street chains, to a cinema, theatre, indoor swimming pool, library and popular cafes and eateries.
