* * * * SOLD AND SIMILAR PROPERTIES URGENTLY REQUIRED * * * * Located conveniently on the eastern flank of Devon`s ever popular Dawlish, this spacious first floor apartment boasts bags of charm and character and benefits from many period features including panel doors, ornate cornice work and two period fireplaces. Dawlish is an attractive, traditional seaside town on the iconic red sandstone main railway line of the historic GWR. With a thriving network of shops, pubs, restaurants and community amenities, including doctor`s surgery, schools, theatre/cinema and leisure centre, there are excellent transport links to nearby Torbay, Newton Abbot and Exeter (8 miles.)
The sought after Sea Lawn Terrace community occupies a unique waterfront location minutes from the town centre. Following the famous storms of 2013, multi-million pound restoration by government and Network Rail has given the entire location a long-lasting facelift. The rail line and seawall have been totally reinforced/rebuilt and the private access road completely resurfaced; sizeable government grants to each property have further enhanced this, giving each sea fascia a long-term weatherproof lifespan, reflected in the freshly painted Victorian frontages.
Hidden by a rambling oak, the apartment is discreetly reached by descending steps beside its own garage (only one of four), then over a small bridge to a gated, garden patio area (ideal for BBQ). Beyond a solid front door, a spacious lobby accesses a just-refurbished bathroom and toilet, and hallway into the main flat. The bay fronted lounge is the real gem of the property with its imposing tiled marble fireplace and windows offering an immediate panorama of Lyme Bay, Jurassic coastline and even Portland on a clear day. The window in the neighbouring kitchen, newly double glazed, offers a similar breathtaking aspect; summer steam trains immediately below, revive the history. An open, potential hallway study area (or kitchen relocation, to facilitate a second bedroom), introduces the generous, double bedroom with its plumbed washbasin, wardrobe bays and another period fireplace.
From Sea Lawn Terrace, a path alongside the garage leads to steps down to a bridge across the roof garden with outside light. Obscure glazed and timber front door to
