Occupied by the present owner since it was built in 1972, the house offers great potential for modernisation and extension, subject to planning consent. It is of traditional construction, with facing brick elevations under a concrete tiled roof, and is connected to all mains services, with gas central heating (the boiler for which was replaced approximately 3 years ago) and some UPVC double glazed windows. The dining room was constructed in the 1980s.
The ground floor comprises an enclosed entrance porch, a utility room, an entrance hallway, a cloakroom, a large living room (with hardwood block flooring and brick open fireplace), a dual aspect dining room (with sliding doors to the garden) and a kitchen/breakfast room with worktops, sink, oak units, Hotpoint double oven, 6-burner stainless steel gas hob, extractor unit, dishwasher, space for fridge-freezer, and space for table and chairs. On the first floor there are 3 spacious double bedrooms (2 of which have outstanding views towards the coast), a single
bedroom/study and a shower room (formerly a bathroom).
Vehicular access leads to a tarmac driveway with space for at least 3 vehicles, and an attached garage with up-and-over door. The gardens surround the house on 3 sides. The main garden area, to the south, is enclosed by close boarded fencing and high conifer hedges, offering almost complete privacy, and has a large lawn, a tiled terrace, well stocked flower and shrub borders, a greenhouse, a workshop, a timber store, a mature apple tree and established camellias.
