Full description of the house for sale
The house is set on top of a rise giving delightful commanding sea views and offers three terraces, which is one of the features that we find so charming and useful. The house has been extensively renovated, at considerable expense, and now has a first class heating system, with immediate and continuous high pressure hot water from a new Firebird Combi 90 boiler.
The interior floor space is 105 sq metres. This has been retiled using Italian Porcelain Richetti Vitruvius tiles with an antiqued cream finish in all the rooms bar the kitchen, bathroom and WC which have been tiled with genuine black slate. There is detailed 5 year planning permission for a further 45 sq metres which we would pass on to the new owner along with the architectural drawings.
The house carries a RECCI certificate and has been rewired with a new RCB safety system fuse box. Examples of some of the advance features are recessed lights with dimmer switches throughout the house, auto floodlights all around the house and into the garden, power sockets on the front lawn as well as on the front terrace. Lack of sockets is extremely frustrating and therefore we have ensured that there are plenty available, especially in the kitchen, and most of them are metal faced.
The Accommodation features :-
A very large reception room having sliding French windows onto one of the terraces and also panoramic windows delivering sea views in two directions (double aspect in Estate Agents' jargon). There is also a charming fireplace which draws very well indeed.
There are three good sized bedrooms with the master bedroom having sea views.
The bathroom has a new pedestal bath with combi shower tap unit, a Villeroy & Boch washbasin featuring a Grohe swivel tap, a WC, genuine black slate floors and two chrome ladder style radiators and two stainless steel mirrored medicine cabinets.
There is a separate WC with wash hand basin, genuine black slate floors and an attractive porthole window overlooking the sea.
The large square Kitchen is again double aspect with large sea view windows. It has been fitted with classic style cabinets in a creamy white colour with stainless steel T bar handles and the entire work surface has been created using a beautiful black granite, the latest Neff stainless steel double oven unit, a Siemens gas hob unit and a special double drainer basin and cleaner unit with shower style tap.
There is a good size utility room, with washbasin, radiator and cupboards, which could be used to make a fourth bedroom.
The boiler room is housed in a small conservatory and this could be expanded to become a new utility room.
There is a good sized hall with fitted cupboard and sea view windows.
There is a huge garage with enough space for a separate workshop and which has plenty of power sockets, with its own RCB fuse board and several lights.
The loft has been floored the entire length with thick high grade ply wood and has lighting throughout.
Outside in the landscaped garden there are two timber framed garden buildings with good size windows. The mains power and light has been professionally installed and is covered by the RECCI certificate. The larger building has windows to the front and to the back and there is a view of the fields. This building is approached by its own flight of steps in particular. It has the tranquillity and space that would be ideal for use as an office or a writer's den. The smaller building at the back of the house, which also affords privacy, might be more suitable as a workshop.
The landscaped garden is about half an acre and has a front lawn with a fully set handmade double swing made out of telegraph poles. This overlooks the sea to the front and has fields with dairy cows on one side and a steep embankment with hedge on the other side hiding the next door garden.
The entire property has been made suitable for keeping dogs as there is now secure fencing. To the front there is a stone wall and attractive hedge which is high enough to afford privacy from passing traffic The property is entered via a wrought iron arrow head gate which is lockable and was handmade for us at the local forge.
