PROPERTY SUMMARY With panormic sea front views, 'Shorecroft' is indeed unique and one of those properties many would aspire to live in. The current owners, together with their Architect, designed this lovely home with the focus around three key elements; modern family life, the wonderful waterfront setting and the ever changing seasonal light. The kitchen/dining/family room is without doubt an impressive addition to this seaside home. It is far more than just a room for 'dining'. It's the heart of the house. The vendors wanted to create a large space which equally suited family life and entertaining. There's even enough space here for a work desk and piano! The two roof lanterns capture sun all day and evening, although the underfloor heating is a good back up for cooler winter days, and the beautiful 'blue eyes' granite worktops ensure a long lasting and interesting surface with the blue flecks picking up the sunlight shining through the roof lanterns.

Upstairs, the open-plan sitting room, with access onto the decked balcony which spans the front of the property and can also be accessed via the master bedroom, is a very clever addition indeed. Designed to take advantage of the panoramic sea views over The Solent and out to the Isle of Wight, the vendors consider this "an ideal spot for quiet reading or enjoying a 'sundowner' cocktail". The windows to the upstairs sitting room and master bedroom have one-way privacy coating ensuring one can enjoy looking out knowing those outside aren't looking in. In addition to all this, their design has thoughtfully made it easy to create annexe accommodation, if desired, without the need for any reconfiguration of the current layout.

Externally, the gardens were created with low-maintenance in mind so that the owners could enjoy their lovely coastal surrounds. The quality finish also includes; solid Oak interior doors, 'silver shadow' marble flooring with underfloor heating, Bosch & Neff kitchen appliances, 'Roper Rhodes' fitted bathroom furniture, quality sanitary ware, upvc double glazed windows and patio doors.

Hayling Island offers many attractions including award winning beaches, windsurfing and kite surfing centres, horse riding facilities, a Links golf course, walkways along the Hayling Billy Trail and two Marinas. Day to day needs are catered for on the island, whilst nearby Havant provides more extensive shops and a mainline railway station for commuters to reach London Waterloo within 1½ hours.
