The Old Coach House occupies a quiet, peaceful and private location set down its own driveway which meanders through the established woodland.

Steeped in established woodland the ground extends, in all, to approx. 2.28 acres with levelled lawned garden areas which adjoins the dwelling with pretty stream border.

Sea views are enjoyed from the front elevation of the accommodation. The ground floor provides; an entrance conservatory, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, a study/ground floor bedroom and a large sitting room featuring a woodburning stove. The main landing leads to four good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. A secondary staircase leads to a further fifth bedroom with adjoining shower room, providing ideal guest accommodation or dual occupancy needs. Adjoining the conservatory is a useful utility room/store.

A private road meanders down to the property which is set perched overlooking the stunning scenery and provides ample parking. The adjoining gardens form a most attractive feature of the property and contain variety of lawned areas, established pond, stream border which hosts an abundance of wildlife.
