Vendor's View -

Our Time Here - It was mostly the garden that drew us to this property. Its well-established with lavender all the way down one side, and theres a summerhouse at one end; its just beautiful. We have a chocolate labrador and so for her it was ideal to have lovely big garden. We also liked the gates at the front, it feels very safe and you can hear if anyone is coming in, which gives a sense of security and privacy. The office also allows us to work from home.
My favourite room is probably the main bedroom, which has an en-suite and is a nice calming space. I also love the open plan kitchen/living space that we created when we purchased the property. It's great because we can do the cooking and watch the children play. We made the conservatory into a playroom, so it's a good family space where we can all be together.
We love the fact that you've got the beach on your doorstep. It's a dog friendly beach all year round as well, which is hard to find. Being close to the sea is lovely, we like to watch the ships on the water and there is always something interesting to see.
It's with great sadness that we have to leave this property to relocate to another county. We started our family here and the children have spent their formative years in this lovely house. It's such a great family home with the garden being a real highlight. There's a lovely willow tree that we used to put the Pram under to shelter the babies from the sun, and thats just one of many happy memories we will treasure of our time here.
