This substantial, elegantly appointed Victorian mansion house was built in 1890 of natural stone elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof and has some partial tile-hung elevations to the side and rear. Particularly impressive architectural features include a decoratively carved parapet which forms the entranceway to the building, impressive solid stone perpendicular arched doorways, trefoil windows and an octagonal glass-sided turret enjoying uninterrupted views out to sea. The main entrance hallway is also very impressive with a full-height ceiling, exposed carved timber 'A' frames supported on stone corbels and an elaborate balustraded staircase with carved wooden capitals. Many of the fireplaces are original and much of the period detailing is still in evidence.

At ground level, a spacious imposing HALLWAY with sweeping timber balustrade gives access to two wings; to the left, a DINING ROOM situated next to an L-SHAPED KITCHEN make ideal entertaining spaces served by a CLOAKROOM, LARDER and REAR HALLWAY affording access via a discreet stairway to first floor accommodation.

Returning to the hallway, an imposing staircase gives access to the first floor where space abounds throughout. A MASTER EN-SUITE affords stunning uninterrupted sea views from an external stone BALCONY whilst THREE FURTHER DOUBLE BEDROOMS have the benefit of a FAMILY BATHROOM and separate CLOAKROOM. A spacious FAMILY ROOM affords a wonderful seaward vista shared by a useful STUDY. There is also a UTILTY ROOM on this floor making the accommodation ideal for adaptation into Bed and Breakfast-style accommodation subject to the usual permissions. Returning to the landing, stairs give access to the second floor where ceiling voids reveal original timber detailing. Views from the front elevation at this level are truly breathtaking. FIVE BEDROOMS occupy the uppermost floor in addition to an octagonal seaward turret; ideal for use as an inspirational space for an artist of writer.

To the front of the property lies a tarmacadam driveway and stone paved parking area providing plentiful parking for a considerable number of cars. Immediately to the front of the property is a well-stocked flower border with a number of mature shrubberies and colourful all year planting together with a rockery area providing the ideal vista from which to enjoy the sea views (and Olympic events!) Pedestrian access to the side of the property leads to the main entrance. A small courtyard area to the side of the property and a private courtyard to the rear offer a secluded sun-trap. There is an extension to the rear of the property in matching stone elevations with perpendicular style archway through double doors giving access to an OUTBUILDING which is currently divided into a LOBBY, STORE and SEPARATE UTILITY/STORE.
