Property description

The perfect setting for a very modern styled detached family home which is truly versatile in layout and in fine decorative order throughout. The property has been designed to maximise the breathtaking outlook to the North, out to sea and along the sea front. The lounge is located at first floor level to maximise the sea view and create a real feeling of refinement which will grab the attention of any onlooker.

You could potentially utilise the accommodation as a 7 bedroom home, with a large kitchen/family room and separate utility area, and the bedrooms are arranged over the ground, first and second floor levels.

There is a wealth of parking on offer with a substantial block paved driveway and a large integrated garage.

Every room in the house has sea views and allows sunlight to pour through. The rear garden is easily maintainable and the perfect size for anyone that doesn't want their time monopolised by gardening.

This idyllic setting is also only a short walk to the railway station for weekends away or the commute.

The property is being sold with vacant possession which will reduce the stresses and strains of worrying about an onward chain and will enable any potential buyer the opportunity of moving forward quickly.

Please refer to the footnote regarding the services and appliances.

What the Owner says:
This unique property has been our fantastic family home for over 14 years, during which time we have extended and modernised it to provide spacious and flexible accommodation for our growing family. You can see the sea from every room, and the view from the lounge is particularly fabulous!

Living on the seafront is a joy, whatever the season. We love that we can be on the beach in a moment, or walk into town in a few minutes. The colourful beach huts along the front are always cheerful to look at, and there is a real community feeling too. This house is all about quality of life, whether you enjoy being on the water or simply viewing it.
