There are few clues to its original purpose but Renown Cottage, in Seaview, was once a functional agricultural building.

This unique property, on a tucked away private road, was comprehensively rebuilt in 2016.

Traditional materials counterbalance the contemporary feel, with an exposed interior stone wall, timber beam structure and vaulted ceilings.

The extremely high standard of finish is immediately noticeable — there’s hand-carved joinery to all of the doors, door architraves and bespoke shelving units.

Modern comforts include underfloor heating through the ground floor, automated Velux roof lights and LED floor and ceiling spot lighting.

Its superb architectural design incorporates a large open-plan kitchen and living area, with a fully glazed elevation at one end.

This is a fantastic family room with generous space for seating around the Charnwood free-standing stove, so cosy winters won’t be a problem.

The sleek kitchen space is well-equipped, with an extensive range of under-counter and full-height storage units, with two Siemens mid-level ovens and five-ring induction hob, a microwave, grill and plate warmer, remote-controlled extractor, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

Sliding patio doors onto the decked terrace are a superb feature, which will be much used on summer days.

There are four good-sized bedrooms, two of which are en-suite.

Renown Cottage offers a particularly versatile arrangement, with one of the bedrooms over the garage, within a self-contained studio.

It boasts patio doors onto a balcony overlooking the adjacent fields, with a delightful southerly aspect.

This room creates an excellent opportunity as potential letting accommodation or for multi-generational families not to be in each other’s pockets.

Outside is a garage and enclosed terrace for alfresco dining, as well as an access route past the rear of the old Seagrove Manor House.

There is a short walk down to Seagrove Bay, with its sandy beach and fantastic coastal walks.
