Why you’ll like it:
Offering the best of all worlds, you can enjoy all that the coast and the countryside have to offer from this glamorous house which has recently been refurbished to an exacting standard with the energy efficient windows and most electrics and plumbing all being renewed over the past six years although, unusually, there remain exciting possibilities within this large home.
With glorious uninterrupted views of the sea, this house stands out even from its prosperous neighbours as it steps up and back from the road and the garage, past terraces deep enough for tables and chairs and which have lighting already in place. The practical porch has doors at each end, perfect for muddy paws, and the glass roof gives an indication as to the importance of maximising light to the interior design. The front door opens into a welcoming hall, broad enough for a home office and which opens beneath an arch into a stunning living room flooded with sunlight and panoramic views of the English Channel which stretch as far as the eye can see. The south wall is almost all glass and the deep bay has a door on the left opening onto a sophisticated decked sun terrace, ideal for al fresco dining. Behind you, the spacious kitchen is discrete beyond the dining area, the glamorous black units providing plenty of solid wood work surfaces. The steel Delonghi multi fuel range could stay and is sociably placed in the centre of the far run. The dishwasher is integrated and there is plumbing for a washing machine and space for a drier secreted behind two of the glossy doors.
Central to the ground floor, the luxury bathroom is decorated in natural tones and has a raised bath and attractive storage beneath the contemporary hand basin – and there is a sumptuous heated towel rail to hand. Next door and across the hall are two of the bedrooms, each light and airy and with fitted wardrobes already for you.
The master bedroom spans the whole of the width of the back of the house and it would be simple to re- open the arch leading into the bedroom behind it which was the dressing room at one stage, although the room is lovely and spacious as it is and has a chic en suite, and wide French doors with window to each side open out into the private garden for breakfast.
Outside, the fabulous garden is discreetly zoned with an area currently used for barbeques carefully separated from the play area whilst raised decking provides a place to party, and there is potential in the brick built out house which has plumbing and power.
The top floor currently has two double bedrooms, each with dormer windows bringing in westerly views of the coast and there is also a deep attic space. The current owner’s had considered turning this whole floor into a luxury master suite with an en suite at the back, a dressing room and a small balcony at the front, but decided to stay downstairs whilst the children were little.
Bear in mind:
This detached home is beautiful as it is but also offers interesting possibilities regarding the top storey and also, planned development would probably allow for the creation of a new floor beneath the first, paved south facing terrace.
