Unique, 5 bedroom Arts & Crafts style detached house with beautiful far reaching views to the sea, set in an envious position in a sought after location.
Seaton is located between the ancient harbour of Axmouth and the white cliffs of Beer. Its mile long beach, which is part of the Jurassic Coast, opens onto the waters of Lyme Bay. The town itself has many small shops, a local hospital, doctors' surgeries, primary school, banks and building societies. Seaton is a popular resort for holiday makers, and boasts a wealth of activities including golf, tennis, bowls and sailing. There are good secondary schools nearby along with the renowned Colyton Grammar School, which is just 3 miles inland. The County town of Exeter, with its regional airport, is some twenty miles to the west, and the mainline rail link to London (Waterloo) is at Axminster, approximately seven miles distant.
An attractive and popular East Devon seaside resort with a good size resident population which is increasing rapidly with many new developments planned and currently under construction.
It is located on the world famous Jurrassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
There is the unique Electric Tram Railway which operates from its Terminus nearby traveling through the Axe valley bird sanctuary and wetlands to the historic inland town of Colyton.
The famous Beer Caves and Pecorama railway and visitor centre are closeby in the fishing village of Beer.

Lone Pine we believe dates back to 1908 and was built to an Arts & Crafts style. Both the house and grounds enjoy spectacular sea and coastal views from the majority of the rooms. This unique detached house we understand was originally 1 acre and was purchased from the nearby Wessiters Estate. It now sits on a plot approaching just over half an acre of beautiful gardens and grounds. The property enjoys many character features expected of the era, including a grand central entrance hall with sweeping staircase and parquet flooring. There are still the original working servants bells to be seen in a number of rooms. A delightful veranda wraps around the side and front of the property leading on to the main garden area from where you can enjoy the best of the views. Internally the accommodation is spread over three floors with an additional (originally servants) stairs at one side of the property. The rooms are flexible as to their use with three sizeable reception rooms, a kitchen and large utility, study and sun room all on the ground floor. In addition, there is a large walk-in pantry, boiler room and WC. On the first floor, access is gained to the stairs to the upper floor, four large double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities including the Master Bedroom which is delightful with French doors and windows either side affording beautiful views towards the sea. These doors open onto a balcony which further extends the views towards the Axe Estuary in one direction, the sea and beach and the tops of Beer Cliffs in the opposite direction. There is an additional fifth double en-suite bedroom on the upper floor, which again enjoys delightful far reaching views. The property has full gas fired central heating, a mixture of original windows some with attractive diamond detailing, and double-glazed windows to the upper floors. The property has recently had some external redecoration with redecoration to the ground floor wooden windows and doors as well as upstairs balcony and outhouse frames. We highly recommend an early internal viewing to fully appreciate this exceptional property.
Outside: 17' 4'' x 15' 5'' (5.279m x 4.698m)
The gardens and grounds extend to just over half an acre and wrap around the property with the house sitting in a fairly central position. Stone pillars with double gates give access from Marlpit Lane to the driveway to the property which has ample parking and turning for a number of vehicles. A very large garage measuring 28' 0'' x 20' 0'' (8.527m x 6.098m) sits to the side of the house with double up-and-over electric garage door. There is ample space for two vehicles along with space to the rear for storage along with a pitched roof providing additional storage. This purpose-built garage was built by the present owners and matches in perfectly with the original house. There is an additional two storey Coach House which measures approximately 17' 4'' x 15' 5'' (5.279m x 4.698m). It currently provides additional garage space with stairs leading to the first floor. (This could be converted to additional accommodation subject to any necessary planning consents). The gardens are a beautiful backdrop to the property with a large lawn sloping gently from the veranda with a number of trees, and flower beds to the outermost edges. There is a lovely greenhouse, shed and vegetable garden all accessed by a pathway which surrounds the property. To the side of the property there is a block paved terrace and a further paved seating area to the side of the sun room. Fantastic views can be enjoyed towards the sea from the majority of the gardens. The whole plot is surrounded by a mixture of mature hedging and fencing affording a good deal of privacy for the property and gardens.
