Guide Price £1.25 million.
Understood to date from the 1930s with later additions, the property is an exceptional and handsome house providing well-proportioned and interesting accommodation.
The ground floor rooms are ideally arranged for modern day living and formal and informal entertaining. The reception hall has a wide oak turned staircase to one end, and to the other end glazed doors lead through to the large conservatory, from which there are stunning sea views. Both the drawing room and dining room have polished wood floors and attractive fireplaces.
The kitchen/breakfast room is a particular feature of the property and has a two oven Aga, two stainless steel fronted Imperial ovens and a large sub-zero American style fridge/freezer.
On the first floor there are five/six bedrooms (two of which are currently utilised as dressing rooms and are fitted with an extensive range of cupboards and drawers).
In addition, there are two bathrooms and a shower room.
The property is approached via an electrically operated gate, from which the drive bordered by mature shrubs and trees leads down to the house. Adjacent to the house there is a parking area with a detached brick and tile garage to one side with an adjacent workshop and garden store.
On the south eastern side of the house, and adjacent to the conservatory there is a wide paved terrace with an adjacent lawn.
Beyond the lawn there is an area of woodland with attractive mature trees and shrubs. From the entrance drive, a short flight of steps lead up to a large level lawn with a summer house and greenhouse to one side. The garden has been landscaped over the years and is well-stocked providing a secluded setting for the house, and from the garden there are some stunning sea views. In all about 1.25 acres.
