The property Lark Cottage is deceptively spacious having been extended and altered over the years by the current owners providing versatile accommodation. The property offers a fantastic opportunity for a prospective purchaser to make their own as it could now benefit from some updating.

An initial entrance porch leads onto the main entrance hall with doors providing access to the double aspect sitting room and the master bedroom with built in wardrobes, both of which enjoy panoramic views over the shingle beach and out to the sea. Also accessed off this hallway is the main family bathroom and the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room has ample storage provided by matching wall and base units as well as a larder cupboard. From the kitchen there is a door leading through to the side hall with further doors to a utility room, bathroom and door to the courtyard garden.

The inner hall to the right hand side of the entrance hall provides access to bedroom three with built in wardrobes and a further double aspect reception room with panoramic views out across the beach and sea.

The rear of the bungalow provides scope for the property to function as a bed and breakfast, having its own guest bedroom with built in wardrobes, wet room and light and airy reception with double doors out onto the courtyard garden. This area can be completely shut away from the main bungalow. The rear entrance hall also has a door leading to the courtyard and access to the old cottage which has two further reception rooms.
