Why you’ll like it:

This unique, gated development designed to be energy efficient centres around a former Benedictine convent and the architect has been careful not to destroy the character of the grounds by creating peaceful inner courtyards which as well as providing parking and cycle stores are also attractive as they are planted with trees. A wild life pond adds to the relaxed atmosphere and these exquisite apartments are in the imposing centre piece of the site.

Built in 1906, St Augustine’s Villa, now known as The Lees, has the generous proportions that its ecclesiastical architect Edward Goldie was known for, together with his sophisticated blend of sweeping bays and arches. The imposing front door has a grand glass arch above it and the lobby inside is clean and well organised with an inner door, secured by an answer phone, opening into a bright hallway with thick carpet and sensor lighting. Climbing the broad steps, right at the top beneath a skylight a fire door makes the front door to this apartment not only quiet but also absolutely private.

Thoughtfully designed the two bright bedrooms are away from the main living space and on either side of a luxurious bathroom which is chicly decorated and has a shower above the bath and a heated towel rail to hand. The first spacious bedroom is beautifully decorated with high ceilings, a fitted wardrobe and dormer windows bringing in plenty of light and open views. Past storage, the master bedroom has dreamy spires and the sea peeking through the south facing window whilst the evening sun pours through the large west facing window. A spacious wardrobe is already in place for you and the new carpet and fresh paint means that this room is ready to move into.

At the end of the hallway the glamorous living room has stunning views sweeping in through the generous windows in two walls from the golf course to the sea over characterful roof tops and deep sills on which to lean to admire them. The streamlined kitchen is tucked away to the left forming an L shape so that although it is sociable, it does not dominate the space. There are plenty of units in a fashionable Cashmere topped by smooth Alpine White work surfaces. All of the appliances, including the brand new gas hob are, as you would expect of a build of this quality, integrated and of high specification so this is a room ready for the housewarming and with two levels of lighting, you can choose the mood.

Bear in mind:

The Lees has been converted to an exacting standard achieving a BREEAM rating of very good. The energy efficient features include high specification acoustic/heat insulation and LED lighting- which uses a quarter of the electricity of a standard lightbulb.
