Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Windgates has its origins dating back to the 1930's but has subsequently been considerably remodelled and enlarged to offer light and well proportioned accommodation. Boasting a large kitchen family room with vaulted ceiling, triple aspect living room, master bedroom with balcony and stunning views from all principle rooms. Worthy of particular mention is the loft room with pull down wooden stairs offering access to the roof terrace with commanding coastal views.This beautiful family home is traditionally built with rendered and colour-washed exterior elevations on a brick plinth under a tiled roof and has the benefit of replacement double glazed windows and a recently installed high specification Worcester gas boiler (with 10 years guarantee).The accommodation is adaptable in its layout and incorporates a number of impressive features such as the huge, part-vaulted kitchen/dining room with oak flooring; a large and delightful 'L' shaped living room; and a principal bedroom with bay window and window seats that, like all the principal rooms, take full advantage of the stunning aspect. There is also a ground floor double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a notable feature if anybody has mobility difficulties, and ideal for guests; this room could also serve as additional living space or home office.Also worthy of particular note is the attic room approached from a wooden pull down ladder and offering access to the large roof balcony with commanding views. Had the current owners stayed they had intended to convert this into a sixth bedroom with a spiral staircase from the landing and dormer windows overlooking the sea. There are many contemporary style oak internal doors.OUTSIDEThe property is approached from Cliff Road over a small lane that gives access to three other select properties, with Windgates occupying the prime, secluded situation at the end. Five bar timber gates lead to a large gravelled, parking and turn around area with space for numerous vehicles. Towards the top of the drive is a detached double garage with a second floor providing ample storage.Adjacent to this is the double garage building with twin oak doors. The gardens create a most apt and colourful setting for the property itself and lie principally to the west and consist of sweeping areas of lawn bordered by profusely stocked shrub and plant beds. A small shrubbery divides the main lawns from the orchard area with its apple and pear trees, a large aluminium framed greenhouse, vegetable garden, and two useful timber garden sheds. Immediately adjoining the front of the house is a large brick paved terrace overlooking the sea, a delightful place for a meal on a summer's day, or to watch the sunset on a balmy evening. In all the gardens and grounds extend to about two thirds of an acre.
