Today this much loved family home radiates elegance with its sweeping roof lines, clad in slate tiles and vast gable ends that have been entirely glazed. An entrance lobby gives access via glazed doors to a sitting room on the ground floor and a stair that rises to the first floor.
The first floor accommodation is the main living area. The stairs rise to a beautiful kitchen with a high, vaulted ceiling and a range of high-spec fitted kitchen units featuring many integral appliances. The magnificent vaulted ceiling continues on throughout the entirety of the first floor into a huge, dual aspect drawing room and dining area where one can't help but be transfixed by the vast glazed gable end that brings the fantastic views of open countryside and the sea into the room; a focal point that far out does the attractive log burner that sits at the opposite end of the room. To the other side of the kitchen lies the master suite that spans the breadth of the house. Again, the master suite is dual aspect with the same vaulted ceiling giving a tremendous feeling of space and elegance with the entirety of one gable-end being glazed in the same fashion as the drawing room and offering magnificent views down to the sea. A sheltered balcony to the opposite side of the room has views over the garden and surrounding countryside. The ensuite has been luxuriously appointed with both shower and separate bath and views across open fields via a series of windows.
The ground floor sitting room features large patio doors that open on to the level rear garden whilst a superb modern log burner acts as a further focal point. Two double bedrooms are accessed directly from the sitting room whilst a passage way leads to a further double bedroom with ensuite, a family bathroom, separate cloakroom and the ground floor kitchen. From the kitchen, a door opens into a vast twin garage with sliding garage doors and a further pedestrian door opening on to the front terrace. A plant room is also accessed from the garage which contains the powered units for the properties various systems. GARDENS AND GROUNDS

The paved sun terrace acts as a path to the front door, continuing around both sides to the larger rear garden bordered by a mixture of mature trees and fencing affording a great deal of privacy.
