Tenure: Freehold

Extensively renovated and landscaped throughout, this stunning property is ideally situated within a secluded position, a short distance from Birdham Pool Marina. Project managed by Joanna Jefferson architects with colour washed and cedar wood elevations, the renovation pays particular attention to space and natural light along with providing flexible accommodation. Converted to suit disabled access the first floor is accessible via an elevator from the central hallway. The main sitting room, with feature fireplace, leads through to a charming south-facing garden room with a large roof lantern and westerly rural views. To the side of the reception room the kitchen/dining room has garden doors opening onto extensive patio areas. To the rear of the property there is a spacious utility area with access to a wet room (with underfloor heating) and a smart integral double garage. Completing the ground floor there is a double bedroom/study and a cloakroom. Upstairs both principle bedrooms are accessed from a large landing area, and each provides extensive en suite bath and shower rooms with underfloor heating. Further features include a west-facing balcony from the main bedroom and a Nest security system which also controls the central heating.

Outside the garden and grounds have been extensively landscaped with an al fresco dining area, expansive patio leading to a 17' Hydropool (for use all rear round), large areas laid to lawn and assorted bedding areas for shrubs and plants in the borders, and two garden stores. To the front parking is provided for a number of vehicles. Further features include electric uplighters within the bedding areas and a hydrating Soaker hose watering system.

In all, the property is set in gardens and grounds which extend to approximately 0.3 acres.
