Tenure: FreeholdDESCRIPTION: Sea View terrace, built at the end of the Georgian period is a Grade II listed property located in a conservation area where properties rarely come to the market. This fine period home is thought to date from around 1840 and offers a mix of Georgian and Victorian features with well-proportioned rooms, good ceiling heights, balustrade and floor to ceiling sash windows. The property is set over four floors with the kitchen/breakfast room, utility, cloakroom and study/dining room set on the first floor. To the second floor there is a large entrance hallway leading to two spacious reception rooms both with floor to ceiling windows and sash bays both offering coastal views. To the third floor there is a large landing with a seating area, master bedroom with the most wonderful views overlooking the historical harbour, marina, West Somerset steam railway and the coast line; there is a further bedroom and a family bathroom. To the fourth floor there are two bedrooms and a further reception room. The garden is mostly to the front which offers a good degree of privacy with its mature shrub borders and is laid to lawn with a large decked area. To the rear of the property there is a private courtyard garden which enjoys plenty of sunshine and a further garden which is accessed from the courtyard along a pathway; this is currently used by the owners for growing a variety of vegetables and fruits. The garden has been fenced to three sides and offers plenty of storage facilities and parking for many vehicles. To fully appreciate the position of this exceptional and individual family home viewings come highly recommended.

The coastline and the recently constructed marina, opened in 2001, are notable attractions of the area.
