Property description

Tenure: Freehold

A detached 2 bedroom house with courtyard garden, garage parking and rooftop sea views situated close to the town centre. No onward chain.

Anchor Cottage is a detached house built in the 1980s of mellow brick under a pantiled roof and situated on a prominent corner plot with views towards the sea from the principal bedroom. The property is close to the town centre with its main shopping street just a few steps away making it ideal as a conveniently located permanent residence or a second home with holiday lettings potential.

There is accommodation comprising an entrance hall, cloakroom, kitchen/breakfast room and a good sized sitting/dining room with a galleried landing, 2 double bedrooms and a shower room upstairs. The current owners have carried out a programme of improvements including a new shower room and cloakroom, the installation of oak internal doors, new radiators and lighting, skimmed ceilings and redecorating. However, the property does require some finishing off with new floor coverings and, perhaps, a replacement kitchen. Planning Permission was also obtained in 2015 (now lapsed) for a 2 storey extension creating a dining area off the kitchen and a small 3rd bedroom upstairs. Please ask Belton Duffey for more information.

Outside, Anchor Cottage has a private walled courtyard garden which has been laid out for ease of maintenance and wraps around the property to the south and east and garage parking.

Anchor Cottage is being offered for sale with no onward chain.
