There is a comprehensive burglar alarm system which also covers the detached double garage. The whole house has gas-fired central heating which is controlled from 2 separate boilers which allows flexibility in heating the property.
The house itself stands comparison with any modernised and refurbished properties in the area but the unique feature of this house is its position.

The glazed back door from the rear garden is in the kitchen which gives it a feeling of a double aspect room.

A double glazed walk- in bay window with a second side double glazed window gives 180 views of the estuary stretching from The Pier to the Leisure Centre and beyond. The views from this window never seem to be the same from day-to-day dependent upon the tide, weather and the time of day. The estuary itself is busy so this is not simply a view of sea and sand but the opportunity to watch how one of the busiest seaways in the country goes about its business. The double glazed window to rear gives a view of the garden but more importantly it lends space and light to this delightful room which is fully appointed for home cinema and hi-fi and has generous storage cupboards. Take the stairs up the remaining 2 double bedrooms on the 2nd floor.
This room could easily be altered to accommodate a 4th bedroom and still leave a beautiful Lounge with sea view.

Double Garage - The garage is accessed from the rear of the house on North Street via an electronically controlled roller door, there is a courtesy door to the side of the garage and also alongside the garage there is a pedestrian gateway into the garden.
The Gardens - The front garden is typical for the age of this property, it is a shallow walled garden and is gated and block paved. The back garden however is really beautiful, it is a patio garden which is paved with granite set and is walled all around. It enjoys the sun as it faces south-west. There is a small garden path from the back gate and the entrance is security controlled from within the house. The garden is big enough for entertaining but small enough not to involve too much work, with raised flower beds. There is presently a fishpond in the garden with a filtration system housed within the garage. There is electricity and water and lighting inside the garage and outside in the garden. There is a sound system fitted in the garage with outside speakers for music on those BBQ days.
Our Thoughts - We believe this is a unique opportunity to buy a Family house, an entertaining house of substance and character overlooking the sea. A walk along the seafront will give an insight into the development which has taken place over recent years as a result of which we think this is the only house left which offers the accommodation and the position enjoyed by Elizabeth Terrace. The sun rises are amazing. The views continually change. This is a house you should view if you feel the seaside is for you and you want to be be in easy walking distance of many of the local attractions, shops and restaurants.
