Property description

Tenure: Freehold

This single storey house built around 1945 in the post war housing rush, has recently been the subject of a comprehensive renovation. A harmonious flow of open-plan living space spans almost 1,450 sq ft across the single storey main residence and annex, with sliding glass walls creating a symbiotic relationship between inside and outside and inviting in an exceptional quality of natural light. The area is renowned for its beautiful beaches and open countryside.

Externally, the house presents a modest façade of brick and coloured render, set behind a crushed granite driveway with raised planters and slatted fencing. Entry is via a generous entrance hall, where there is also a cloak cupboard and a large storage cupboard.

The primary living spaces are arranged in a predominantly open-plan layout at the western end of the house, where full-height sliding walls are perfectly orientated to frame views of the garden and invite an exceptional quality of natural light to flood in whilst a log burner living room and is a natural focal point for the space. A modern kitchen spans the length of one wall, while a large peninsula has been positioned centrally to delineate the space creating natural lounging and cooking areas. Featuring white Corian worktops, the kitchen also has an integrated sink, induction hob and extraction fan, with all requisite appliances neatly hidden within the cabinetry. The kitchen leads seamlessly through to a combined laundry and utility room with a shower room positioned adjacently.

The plan extends off the entrance hall to a sitting room and the sleeping quarters. Decorated in soft, warm tones to create a calm aesthetic the two bedrooms are generously sized with excellent provision of in-built cabinetry. The family bathroom is located off an inner hall and is illuminated by sun tubes over the bath.

Further bedroom space is found in the detached annex which features bi-folding doors opening to a large ensuite bedroom, with sun deck.

Outside the house opens up to a private garden at the rear, which has been paved and lined with mature plants and climbing shrubs, creating evergreen views from the house. The current owners have set up an outdoor dining area opposite the indoor dining area, establishing a wonderful extension of the internal space.
