Located in a semi-rural position between the picturesque fishing village of Beer and the coastal town of Seaton is Seaton Hole, home to a select group of properties. This location gives access to Seaton Hole beach with its seasonal cafe and the South West Coast Path. Beer is a highly sought after fishing village situated on the Jurassic Coast. A crystal clear brook runs down the main street to the pebble beach with its colourful fishing boats. The quaint village centre has various eateries, galleries, shops, gardens, primary school and Pecorama with its steam trains. Close by are delightful coastal and country walks, including cliff-top walks to Seaton Hole and Branscombe. Seaton is located between the ancient harbour of Axmouth and the white cliffs of Beer. Its mile long beach, with level promenade, opens onto the waters of Lyme Bay, which is part of the Jurassic coast. 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. A tourist tram line connects Seaton to Colyton with its exceptional grammar school. The County town of Exeter, with its regional airport, is some 20 miles to the west, and the mainline rail link to London (Waterloo) is at Axminster, approximately 7 miles distant.
From our offices in Seaton, follow the signs to Beer along Beer Road (B3174). As the road leaves Seaton, it turns to the right and enters a wooded area. On the next corner, take the left turn into Old Beer Road. Follow the road towards Seaton Hole Beach. At the triangle just before the cafe, take a right and the entrance to The Glen will be found on the right hand side.
The Glen is believed to have been built in the 19th Century and used as offices for the Royal Navy until the mid '90's when it was converted into 9 apartments. In more recent years, another floor has been added to the property with 3 more apartments which has benefitted the building with a new pitched, tiled roof and water main among other cosmetic improvements to the communal areas and exterior redecoration. This impressive building sits in beautiful grounds of approximately 1 acre with seating areas and a stream running through. There is also a private car park at the end of a long, sweeping driveway for residents and their guests to the rear of the property. Apartment 11 is one of the three apartments which were added in recent years. As such the apartment has all the modern facilities expected of a newly built property yet in a period building. The apartment has an entrance hall with entry phone system with doors to all rooms. There is a delightful, double aspect, modern open plan living/dining/kitchen with French double doors and a 'Juliet' balcony. From here delightful views can be enjoyed over the communal gardens towards the sea and Seaton Beach in the distance. A focal point is the log effect Dimplex electric fire. The kitchen area is at the rear of the room and is extremely well fitted with a matching range of base units with a breakfast bar, electric hob, oven, under unit fridge with a space for a washing machine. There is a stainless steel sink unit and tiled splashbacks all around as well as an extractor hood above the hob. There are two good sized bedrooms. The Master Bedroom has the benefit of French doors which open to a balcony with glass railings which enjoys the same fabulous views as the living room. The bathroom is well fitted with a 'P' shaped bath, wash hand basin and WC. There is a large airing cupboard which houses the pressurised hot water cylinder and the flat benefits from electric heating throughout. This apartment must be viewed internally to appreciate the space and views enjoyed from within.
The communal gardens are a particular feature of the property, extending to approximately 1 acre. They are laid mainly to lawn with a wide range of trees, mature bushes and flower beds. A small stream flows through the gardens with two wooden footbridges across. To the rear of The Glen there is ample communal car parking and single garage plus refuse and drying areas for washing.
