SELLER'S INSIGHT GUIDE PRICE: £ 550,000 TO £ £ 575,000
Millbay is a generous and elegantly presented six-bedroom Edwardian family home that occupies a coveted seafront location and boasts spectacular views across Dovercourt Bay. The residence sits in a slightly elevated position adjacent to the beach, so the views are magnificent for a tremendous seaside lifestyle.

The owners have enjoyed 15 wonderful years at Millbay and during this time they have meticulously restored this beautiful residence and reinstated features in line with the traditional Edwardian era, to offer a stylish and contemporary home, whilst retaining the character and charm. For example, the Minton tiled floors both externally and internally have been fully renovated and looked after to preserve the beauty of this property. Furthermore, there is a framed picture of the property commissioned by the original occupants of Millbay and tradition has it that it is passed on to the new owners.

The property is laid out over three levels with bright spacious rooms bathed in natural light offering extremely conducive living for modern family life. The accommodation is versatile throughout with three generous reception rooms along with a study, which still houses the original Edwardian steel safe embedded within the chimney breast. The lounge on the first floor or 'captain's deck', as the owners like to call it, is simply beautiful, with an original fireplace enhancing a perfect ambiance when the evenings draw in. "It's a very inviting room and it has French doors that lead out onto a little balcony, so the views are absolutely stunning. I love sitting in the upstairs living room, cosy and warm, just watching and listening to a storm blowing in." Adds the owner.

The garden is fully walled and edged with some beautiful mature trees that not only shield the space but also create a lovely outlook. "We have a large lawn, a pretty gravelled seating area either side of the French doors of the dining room and at the far end is a block-paved courtyard where we used to keep the sailing dinghies. It was ideal because we have a rear access gate, so it was incredibly easy getting them in and out." Continues the owner.

"The thing that I'll miss most when we leave is waking up every morning to those views; even after fifteen years, they still take my breath away," says the owner.

 

LOCATION Dovercourt is a pretty seaside town within the Tendring district. The blue flag beach is adjacent to the home and there are many activities for a range of ages. It offers a wide choice for those who love food from something as basic as enjoying a bag of freshly made chips maybe, whilst watching the ships sail in, to fine dining at the renowned Harwich Pier Restaurant and Thai Up At The Quay which has been rewarded best restaurant at the Essex Awards. Dovercourt Town offers an array of amenities from small independent shops to larger chains. Primary and secondary schooling is also with easy access. "It's enabled us all to enjoy a superb quality of life, and an added bonus is the fact that we have everything we might want or need within very easy reach. We even have Dovercourt station just a stone's throw away, so it's a fabulous location for a commuter."

There is a wide range of clubs including two sailing clubs, sea scouts, swimming and sports centre to name a few. During the summer Harwich hosts a number of festivals which really ignite the community spirit, providing enjoyable days out for all of the family. The Electric Palace cinema, Harwich, is one of the oldest purpose-built cinemas in the country and regularly shows films and live streamed events.

The A120 is approximately a 5-minute drive away and offers access to the A12/A14. Harwich International Port provides convenient access by ferry to neighbouring Netherlands, home to the famous Gouda cheese and historic architecture.
