Full description

A rare opportunity to acquire both a fine and grand example of a 1920's style detached family residence. Occupying an elevated hillside position affording some splendid coastal and countryside views particularly from the first and second floor windows. The architectural styling draws heavily on the arts and craft movement of the time and this translates into the home with character and charm.

Burley House offers an extensive accommodation over 3 floors and is currently arranged with both an indulgent master bedroom wing to the first floor and two further bedrooms and shower rooms to the second floor. This property would lend itself well to a multi generational occupation.

Of particular note, as well as refurbishment works including a new second floor shower suite and décor to name just a few of our vendors activities since they have resided at Burley House, attention should be paid to the extensive work they have undertaken restoring the gardens and grounds. This has been a particular focus of our vendors to make the gardens multi-functional to appeal to both the keen gardener with an extensive and exotic range of established plants shrubs and trees but also to provide a garden which can be used, enjoyed and shared offering entertaining opportunity with its lawn, terraces and elevated decking space.

Without a doubt this is a home of distinction. In brief, accommodation on the ground floor comprises, entrance hall, living room, formal dining room, large kitchen/breakfast room, utility room and study. To the first floor can be found the master bedroom. This wing of the accommodation also incorporates the first family bathroom and our vendor has chosen to adopt the adjoining double bedroom as a dressing room, therefore becoming a magnificent master suite. There are two further bedrooms and another family bathroom on the first floor and to the second floor can be found two gorgeous bedrooms and further shower room.

All this along with gardens, off street parking, location and privacy should encourage an early internal inspection.

The gardens have been the focus of attention for our vendors who had a clear idea that that they wanted to restore them to their former glory but also create practical space to sit and enjoy, to entertain the family and with regards to the rear garden take full advantage of the outstanding views.


Double gates open into a wide driveway with parking for multiple vehicles. A wide evergreen hedgerow affords privacy from the road and steps descend into the lawn area. With boundaries defined with new fencing and cleared bordered there is an abundance of mature plants, trees and shrubs including acers, weeping and lavender to name but a few. A well situated summerhouse allows views down to the sea and a central plant bed serves as a focal point for the front.

As you face Burley house to the left, or easily accessible from the kitchen/breakfast room; is a lovely terrace area ideal for alfresco dining with a good degree of privacy and similar space to sit on the right hand side of the building.


Burley House enjoys an elevated position by virtue of its hillside setting. What we believe to be a striking feature and once again our vendors have striven to enhance the path which runs around the slopes taking you to an elevated decking area specifically created to take full advantage of the outstanding views.

Whilst the grounds are extensive and well stocked our vendors have created a garden which is both beautiful but manageable and that showcases the elevation the house enjoys.


Up and over door with power.
