A SPACIOUS 2 BEDROOM GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT, PART OF AN IMPOSING REGENCY HOUSE. MODERNISED TO AN EXCELLENT STANDARD.
This ground floor apartment is part of a gracious Regency House which was built in about 1812 and for many years was the home of Lord Lister who was president of the Royal Society. Subsequently it became a hotel and then in the early 1990's was converted into 5 spacious apartments.
No. 2 has recently undergone complete refurbishment and now benefits from good quality contemporary features and amenities, including new kitchen and bathroom suites, carpets, flooring, blinds and Italian wall coverings all whilst still retaining its elegant character feel.
Although holiday letting is not permitted, the flat can be made available fully furnished and would make an excellent holiday get away or a comfortable principal home. Alternatively it has potential as a long term letting investment.
Highcliff House is situated in an elevated position on the western side of the town about 1/2 mile from the centre and seafront. There are good sized communal gardens surrounding the property from which there are superb views towards the sea.
Close by in Ware Lane is access to the delightful coastal path which leads via the Undercliff to Seaton and also down through National Trust farmland to the historic Cobb Harbour.
