The superb accommodation is spacious, well laid out and arranged over two floors with the principal rooms facing south with marvellous far-reaching views. An adaptable open plan living space has been created comprising large sitting room/dining room with double glazed triple aspect windows and a fabulous bespoke kitchen/breakfast room with large central island and bi-fold doors leading onto a south facing terrace. Both reception rooms have oak flooring throughout and a feature ash spiral staircase has been installed leading up to the first floor. The splendid master bedroom suite on the first floor includes a luxury en suite bathroom with freestanding bath positioned to take advantage of the sea views. Bedrooms four and five have been constructed so that if required they could be joined together to create one larger double aspect room. Whilst the internal proportions of Lark Rise are generous there is scope to further extend, subject to the necessary building and planning consents and possibly create a self-contained annexe by incorporating the existing attached garage.
