Originally a brick-built Georgian cottage, the property has been subject to an extensive and imaginative extension and reconfiguration, which now provides a wonderful family home with striking contemporary accommodation. Cleverly designed and executed with great attention to detail the accommodation is principally on a single storey built around a central courtyard, whilst the main rooms and landscaped gardens make the most of the distant westerly views. The large open plan living spaces have a series of bi-fold doors that open to both the courtyard and garden making for light and unusually spacious accommodation, ideal for entertaining. The bedroom accommodation is mostly situated within the original cottage with the main bedroom suite occupying the entire first floor. High quality fittings have been used throughout and the house is complimented by an unusually large village garden extending the west of the house including a series of terraces and lawned garden within which is a substantial detached garage.

The majority of the extension is built under a series of Standing Seam aluminium mono-pitch sloping roofs with all new wooden double-glazed windows fitted throughout the entire property. As part of the extensive modernisation the house benefits from new electrical, plumbing and heating systems throughout. The hallway and all living areas all have large floor tiles and multi zoned underfloor heating.

This detached contemporary home occupies a superb position within this popular coastal village with the seafront, sailing club being within about 500m whilst the village shop, a café and pub are all a short walk away.
