Property description

A lovely arts and crafts house, with all the detailing one would expect of properties of this era, this fine detached residence offers bags of space over two floors, with a characterful and flexible layout. The property is well-proportioned throughout in a traditional layout with a separate capacious kitchen-diner, formal dining room and front-to-back living room plus a study and utility space all on the ground floor, as well as a five double bedrooms and two bathrooms on the top floor.

The approach to this attractive home provides off-street parking for up to three cars, as well as a separate double garage with mezzanine storage. Beyond the solid wood front door is a vestibule leading onto the generous entrance hallway with lovely wood flooring leading to all the ground floor rooms and with a handsome feature staircase to the upper floor. To the left is a super sitting room running the full depth of the house, with a striking brick inglenook fireplace, commensurate with the architectural period of the building. Double doors lead out to the stone patio at the rear and garden beyond. Ahead are the study and WC and to the right at the front is the dining room and the spacious kitchen breakfast room, which in turn leads to the side return which houses a useful utility area and also provides access to the integral garage. The garden is again accessible here through a further set of double doors leading onto the patio.

Upstairs the master bedroom occupies the space directly over the sitting room so again benefits from the front-to-back triple aspect, affording it distant sea views across the rooftops, as well as a roomy en-suite bathroom with bath and separate shower. Across the landing is a further smaller double bedroom and then along the hallway are two further double bedrooms, the principal bathroom and the final fifth bedroom at the end, currently used as a second study. The hallway also houses a storage cupboard, a separate airing cupboard and the access to the attic.

This lovely property has an abundance of arts and crafts features throughout, to include attractive light wooden doors and frames with wrought iron door furniture, leaded light windows, fine large corner stones and a super 1920s porticoed front door with charming and individual terracotta relief panel above it. The internal space is unstinting in proportion and offers adaptable space, whilst outside the sunny, verdant garden is virtually entirely unoverlooked, with the added benefit of a completely private, well-maintained, heated swimming pool.

This not inconsiderable family property offers five double bedrooms, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and a study, along with garaging for three cars plus storage. There is even scope, subject to the necessary consents, to further increase the square footage if required by extending into the loft. A real period gem, in a superb location, great space in- and outside, this really is an outstanding home.
