High Cliff House is an elegant Grade II Listed Regency period property dating from the early 1800s and for many years it was the home of Lord Lister who was president of the Royal Society. The property has retained many beautiful period features and benefits from high ceilings, large windows and sea views. On the top floor there is a separately owned penthouse which is accessed from behind the property.
The property provides almost 5,900 square feet of accommodation (this includes the garage, carport and log store), briefly comprising a welcoming reception hall, a feature circular reception room to the front aspect, a very spacious dual aspect sitting room with a feature fireplace and glazed bay window. There is also a well-proportioned dining room and a generous open plan kitchen/breakfast room and family room. The kitchen has a range of bespoke fitted units with integrated appliances together with an Aga, while the family room offers ideal space for entertaining, relaxation or for a table for more informal dining. Two of the bedrooms are situated on the ground floor, serviced by a large cloakroom/shower room with sauna. A generous landing with double doors to a roof terrace gives access to the three remaining bedrooms on the first floor, one with rounded walls and an en suite shower room, and to the generous family bathroom with corner bath.
There is planning permission to divide the property into two separate apartments.
High Cliff House is approached from Sidmouth Road over a drive, which provides parking for several vehicles and gives access to a detached single garage and to the property’s integral carport, which in turn gives access to the generous self-contained dual aspect office with cloakroom and to stairs down to the rounded cellar room. Well-maintained communal gardens surround the property and offer superb panoramic views over National Trust land to the sea.
