Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sea haze is an immaculately presented and modern detached family home situated in a very sought after area of the town and enjoying fabulous views to a wide vista taking in Hillsborough and Capstone, the harbour and Hele Bay and stretching across the Bristol Channel to the distant Welsh coastline. The property enjoys some wonderful sunsets and has a ‘reverse level’ design which takes full advantage of the fantastic views. The versatile accommodation can be arranged in a variety of ways and is ideal for the family market but also ideal for an elderly or dependant relative with considerable scope to create an annexe on the ground floor.

The home was built in the mid-1990’s and has an incredibly low maintenance brick built facade together with uPVC double glazed windows and doors and uPVC fascias, soffits, gutters and downpipes. The present owners have considerably improved the property during their ownership redecorating throughout and updating a lot of fixtures and fittings, including a new shower room/wc, presenting the property to a very high standard. The delightful garden has been extensively landscaped with new pathways, fencing, extensive planting with some rare and colourful shrubs, bushes and trees, a vegetable plot and a beautifully kept lawn and storage sheds. There is a large integral garage with an electrically operated door and a further adjacent large workshop/hobbies room/store with direct access on to the rear garden. There is also plenty of additional off road parking too.

Crofts Lea Park sits on the eastern side of the town and is approximately 1 mile from the high street and about a 1/2 mile walk to the picturesque harbour and sea front. Nearby Hillsborough is ideal for dog walkers and Larkstone, Rapparee and Hele Bay beaches are all within easy reach as is the town’s swimming pool. The local Tesco supermarket is also close by with town’s schools for all ages all being readily accessible.

The entrance hall at ground floor level has the stairs to the first floor with a useful store cupboard under, ideal for the household essentials such as the vacuum cleaner and the ironing board. There is also an internal door that opens in to the large integral garage. As mentioned earlier the house has a reverse level design and there are two bedrooms located on the ground floor, one double and one single (bedroom 4 is currently used as an office). Adjacent to the bedrooms is a family bathroom which has a modern white suite and tiled walls and comprises a bath with shower and shower screen over, a low level wc with a concealed cistern and a hand basin set in a modern vanity unit with cupboard under and a shaver socket over and a heated towel rail. There is a good sized utility room which has a sink unit with fitted cupboard under and work surfaces with plumbing for an automatic washing machine under and space and an external vent for a tumble dryer. There is a Baxi gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water.

Moving to the first floor, the landing has all of the remaining rooms leading off. The delightful bright and airy lounge has full height glazed sliding doors which open on to a sea facing balcony and take full advantage of the superb far reaching views over the town taking in the countryside, Hillsborough, Hele Bay and the harbour, around to Capstone and across the Bristol Channel to the Welsh coastline. There is a Gazco electric stove set in a feature fireplace surround and mantle and which provides a focal point to the room. A glazed door leads through in to the kitchen/dining/family room which again enjoys the delightful sea and coastal views. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of modern base and wall units and complimented by integrated appliance which include a Neff double oven and Neff electric ceramic hob with extractor canopy over. In addition there is a Siemens fridge and dishwasher. A central island unit provides further useful work surface with additional cupboards under.

Across the landing are two further double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a range of built in wardrobes and its own en suite shower room/wc. Bedroom 2 has a large wardrobe and an adjacent airing cupboard. The family shower room has been recently updated with a new suite comprising a large walk-in shower cubicle, a low level wc and a hand basin all complimented by attractive tiling and large heated towel rail.

Back down on the ground floor, a door from the entrance hall leads in to the spacious integral garage which is accessed from the rear of the building via a tarmaced driveway from Crofts Lea Park. There is an electrically operated insulated door with part glazed panels. The garage has light and power and interconnects with a very useful workshop/hobbies room/store which was formerly the second garage. There is light and power and a uPVC window and door at the rear which leads out on to the tarmaced drive/parking area within the rear garden. This room is ideal for a variety of uses.

Outside, at the front of the house there is an enclosed area of low maintenance garden. Double gates open on to the tarmaced drive at the left hand side of the building which leads down to the rear to a parking and turning area for 2/3 cars with an outside tap and on to the integral garage. There is a recently constructed decked sitting area in one corner which is ideal for a morning cuppa or evening drink. Shallow steps lead down on to the main part of the rear garden which has been extensively landscaped and remodelled in recent years. There is a large low maintenance ivy bank that runs alongside the steps down to the garden. There is a large coloured gravelled area which in turn leads on to a beautifully kept lawn which has delightful and colourful well stocked flowerbed borders which hold a wide variety of rare plants, shrubs, bushes and trees which are awash with colour through the growing season. Beyond the gravelled area is a productive vegetable plot with greenhouse and a further metal storage shed. At the bottom of the garden there is a further area of lawn and a recently added wooden garden store. New fences have been constructed around the rear garden providing neat and tidy secure borders.

Sea haze truly is a delightful family home with versatile accommodation in A1 order and with excellent facilities ideal for the family market. We fully advise an early internal inspection to fully appreciate the quality on offer.
