The Cliffs is a modern gated development completed in 2007 located on the very edge of the South Devon coast on the southern outskirts of Dawlish just off the Teignmouth Road. Dawlish has excellent transport links, with regular bus service to and mainline rail link to London Paddington. There is a Sainsburys superstore close by and the A379 is literally at the end of the lane, providing good access to the Cathedral City of Exeter with its wide range of educational facilities, fine dining, Princesshay Shopping Centre, a renowned university, an international airport and access to the M5 motorway. There are also good boating opportunities on the Exe Estuary, and an 18 hole golf course at Dawlish Warren. The coastal path and surrounding country side provides miles of footpaths, and there are nearby cycle paths leading along the Exe estuary/canal to Exeter.
Our vendor was one of the first to buy in this development and as such had the choice of any apartment, she felt this one was the best as it has a southerly orientation, getting the best of the sun throughout the day, as well as having views over the communal gardens and the Devon coastline. The apartment is occupies part of the top two floors of the building and is finished to a high standard throughout. From the large entrance foyer a lift whisks you to the second floor. The front door opens to the hallway where the Oak and stainless-steel staircase rises to the first floor. The fabulous open plan living room is double height over the dining area with a wall of glass flooding the room with light and opening to a balcony large enough to take a table and chairs for alfresco dining. The luxurious kitchen has oak storage units with granite work surfaces extending to a large breakfast bar, and there are all the integrated appliances one would expect. There is plenty of space for a sizeable dining table, as well as informal seating, forming a great entertaining and living space. There are two double bedrooms on this level with built in wardrobes, and that share a balcony taking in views of the coast and grounds, one with en-suite facilities, as well as a family bathroom. The majority of the top floor is given over to the master bedroom suite which consists of a large bedroom with balcony – again with views of the coast and grounds, shower room and dressing room, all accessed from a separate hall off the landing. There is a mezzanine sitting room in the vaulted ceiling with a glass balustrade overlooking the living room. This remarkable apartment really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Grounds measuring in the region of three acres are available for the resident’s enjoyment. The development is accessed through a secure automated gated entrance with entry phone which leads to the parking area. There is a garage for the apartment and visitors parking. The landscaped grounds are a mix of lawn and woodland and take in spectacular sea views to the north along the Jurassic Coast. A path winds its way down to a picnic area perched right on the clifftop with beath-taking sea and coastal views that stretch as far as Portland Bill on a clear day.
