With stunning direct sea views over 'The Downs', this substantial period home is in need of some updating but offers incredible potential.
This deceptive property offers much larger than average living accommodation with four good size bedrooms (two with direct sea views), two reception rooms, a kitchen with granite work surfaces & amtico flooring, downstairs WC, a utility cupboard and a family bathroom.
As soon as you step into the grand 17ft entrance hall, you instantly get the feeling that this property is a lot bigger than you would have imagined!
The front reception room is open plan to the kitchen, proving to be extremely sociable and the definite hub of the home with views out to sea.
The rear sitting room is large yet cosy, overlooking the south facing rear garden, allowing a copious amount of natural light to flow through.
An attached garage not only provides storage and further off-road parking, but also a vacant room above with direct sea views. Currently accessed via the half landing, with some changes, this room could potentially become an amazing snug, artist studio or home office with spectacular sea views.
An original Edwardian balcony is found off the third bedroom, wrapping around the rear of the property and overlooking the garden.
The 40ft rear garden benefits from a southerly aspect, enjoying sunshine throughout the day and provides a good degree of privacy.
Ample off-road parking is provided to front which leads to the attached garage.
