This grand two bedroom ground floor apartment is beautifully decorated and has a fabulous, private garden with its own studio. You’ll also have access to 6 hectares of manicured gardens which have a tunnel to the beach, and there are local cafes, restaurants and shops where you’ll find everything you need.

Why you'll like it

Inside, the welcoming hallway has a remarkably high ceiling and ahead is an elegantly proportioned living room with ample space to relax or to dine with friends. The soaring ceiling is decorated with intricate vines and a hand made ceiling rose, whilst afternoon sunshine and garden views stream through the two generous windows at the front of the building, which have retained their original shutters and now have window seats beneath them, so you can fully appreciate the view. The wooden floor is dark and lustrous, the walls are painted in a subtle hue and there's a period fireplace adding to the sense of history.

Next door, the first of the double bedrooms is quiet and serene, with shelves on each side of the fireplace and a large window which reaches the ceiling with carefully preserved cornicing.
Past under stair storage, the hallway opens to a bright kitchen large enough for a table and chairs, and a light touch has skilfully blended contemporary needs with traditional touches, so the room is in keeping with the age of the building. Stylish sage units conceal sophisticated storage and are topped by wood, which segues into a breakfast bar with Zanussi electric hob opposite. The fan oven is built in beneath it and the steel hood, and the fridge and the dishwasher are also already integrated for you. There’s also room for an under-counter freezer at the other end of the room, and a cupboard to one side also has plumbing for a washing machine.

An inner lobby has more, discreet storage and leads to a luxury shower room which has original, leaded windows to the light well. The shower is dual headed, but traditional in style, and the square hand basin resting on a vanity unit and the heated towel rail also have a timeless appeal.
At the end of the hall, the magnificent master bedroom has restful dimensions and both a big window and floor to ceiling French doors with original brass. Ready to move into with soothing décor and two fitted wardrobes, the floor is smoothly sanded and delicate roses adorn the top of the walls.

Perfect for breakfast, the decked garden faces east for the morning sun and is planted with lavender and rustling bamboo, and the glass walled studio at the back enables you to enjoy this charming space whatever the weather.

Agent's thoughts

This property is a fantastic example of a ground floor Regency flat. The ceiling heights are magnificent in all rooms and the kitchen is modern. The fact it has a garden just tops it off.

Owner's secret
