A pathway meanders throughout the front garden leading to either the front door or the generous terrace area set in front of the formal sitting room with French doors providing access into the property via the sitting room if required. From the front terrace there are the most outstanding countryside views on offer across the rolling hills towards the coastline in the distance. This view is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt this area has to offer. Further access into the home is also provided via the breakfast room, again via French doors via the front garden.

Doors from this room lead to the gym or the kitchen / breakfast area.
The gym is a reception room our clients have decided to arrange as an exercise room but could have many other uses. Accessed from the gym is the ground floor shower room with WC and wash hand basin. If any potential buyer wished to work from home yet in the comfort of the main home then this area would make a strong possibility.
