Beautifully Presented Victorian Terraced Cottage With Three Bedrooms, Spectacular Sea Views & Central Village Location.
5 Mount Hill, Long Hill, Beer EX12 3HX
This beautifully restored Victorian end of terrace cottage is situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Beer, just a short walk from the village amenities and the beach. Immaculately presented throughout, this character property would be an ideal investment or holiday let and would equally work well as a family home. Since purchasing in 2005, the current owners have improved and refurbished the property throughout being sympathetic to its character and age. The most significant of changes has been the reorganisation of the rooms within the property, with the living and kitchen area being relocated to the first floor to make the most of the impressive sea views and providing direct access to the rear garden. In addition, major works have included complete replacement floor and joists to the downstairs front bedroom and full damp proof course; installation of oak doors throughout; smoke alarm installations; new wood effect uPVC windows and a loft conversion with matching staircase to the original adding a second floor en-suite bedroom. The front door leads into a small entrance porch with original floor tiles and additional door leading into the main entrance hall with original red quarry tiled floor. To the lower floor are two bedrooms - bedroom 2 is a large double room facing the front of the property with sash windows and wooden shutters, alongside a feature cast iron fireplace. Bedroom 1 is also a sizeable room to the rear of the first floor with exposed beams to the ceiling and large alcove alongside French doors leading out to the lower courtyard space. There is also access to understairs storage. Bedroom 1 benefits from a large en-suite bathroom with bath, separate walk-in shower, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.
Stairs rise and turn to the first-floor open plan living and dining room which has lovely views over the village and towards the sea, alongside a feature fireplace with electric fire. A floor to ceiling rectangular window from the dining area overlooks the staircase providing additional light as a charming additional feature to the room. From the dining space, there is a door into the first-floor shower room, which has part tiled walls, walk-in shower, WC and wash hand basin. A further door leads into the fully fitted kitchen which has white gloss base and wall units, worktops and sink, alongside space for a freestanding cooker with integrated extractor hood above, space for undercounter fridge and space for a slimline dishwasher. The gas central heating combi boiler is also in the kitchen. A stable door leads out to a utility space with sky light roof, wall mounted tap and fitted work tops with space and plumbing for a washing machine. A door leads out to the rear garden.
Stairs rise and turn from the first floor up to the second-floor bedroom which is fitted with Velux windows with spectacular views out across the valley, village and towards the sea. There is also plenty of under eave storage and a built-in wardrobe. The modern en-suite shower room is fully fitted with walk-in shower, WC, towel rail and bowl sink with freestanding tap.
This property must be viewed internally to fully appreciate the quality and space within as well as its ideal central location.
Outside: To the front of the property is a low stone wall with iron gate leading into a small fully paved front garden. The rear garden is terraced and landscaped over several levels with a combination of mature shrubs, hedges, flowers and bushes laid over the many levels with ease of access for maintenance. To one side is a wooden fence border and to the other is a stone wall boundary. At ground level, there is a small courtyard area to the rear which is fully enclosed and can be accessed via bedroom 1. Accessed from the first floor is the remainder of the rear garden with paved steps to one side leading up the many levels of garden beyond. The lower garden is a fully paved patio area which is enclosed by stone walling with ample space for a table and chairs. To the top of the garden is a wooden decked seating area perfect for alfresco dining and enjoying the amazing sea and coastal views with wooden summer house.
N.B: Due to being the end terraced cottage of five, this cottage has several rights of access to gain entry to the rear garden externally. There is a ground floor right of way across all cottages leading into the lower courtyard via a rear pathway adjacent to the properties with wooden gate. Access is also available across the neighbouring gardens from Berry Hill via an iron gate halfway up the rear garden and a wooden gate at the top of the garden. Due to its situation at the end of the terrace, no neighbours have access across the garden of number five.
