Bedrooms: 5
Outstanding detached 4/5 bedroom period property, with a contemporary interior and wonderful panoramic southerly views to the sea, stretching from Golden Cap to Lyme Regis taking in Stonebarrow and Charmouth.

The sale of this property is a once in a generation opportunity to own a house with truly spectacular views. The house faces South with all the principal rooms taking in the sea views between Golden Cap and Stonebarrow and Stonebarrow and Lyme Regis. Although the house was built in the 19th Century and retains its character, looks, high ceilings, large picture windows and fireplaces, the house has during our clients' tenure undergone a rolling programme of extension, renewal and refurbishment to create a beautifully balanced house that takes full advantage of its position. The most striking of those changes has been the creation of a sunroom across the rear of the property with three huge sliding glass doors that lead out to the terrace, allowing the views to be taken in from the kitchen/ dining/ living room throughout the year. And the view is something to behold.

Across the rear of the property facing South there is a sitting room arranged around a working fireplace which in turn gives way to a snug, a sunroom and the kitchen/living/dining room. The kitchen/living/dining room has a kitchen area to one end equipped with a range of contemporary floor and wall mounted units and cupboards with hardwood work surfaces over, with space for a range cooker and a dishwasher, with a dining area to the other end. The sunroom stretches across the rear of the kitchen/living/dining room and the snug with three substantial sliding doors that give way to the terrace, which is enclosed by a glass and steel balustrade. Off the hallway there is a cloakroom, while the formal entrance hallway lies to the front of the property with useful coat and boot storage and a utility room. Upstairs the principal bedroom has views to both the South and the West. It has three large built-in double wardrobes with storage cupboards above and leads through to a dressing/fifth bedroom. The principal bedroom and the second bedroom have en-suite shower rooms with the two remaining bedrooms sharing a family shower room. With the exception of the stair carpet the property is laid to attractive quality laminate flooring and tile, that both enhances the feeling of light in space throughout the property and is practical. The property has UPVC double glazing throughout, oil fired central heating, bottled gas for the range cooker and private septic tank drainage.

A wall-edged private drive meanders up to a large area of hard stand providing parking and turning for a number of cars, with access to a timber built double garage.

The gardens lie on the South side of the property and are well stocked with an array of herbaceous, shrub and tree planting designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the seasons and are arranged for ease of maintenance. The planting is interspersed with areas of lawn with a series of gravel paths threading through. The star of the outside spaces is of course the terrace that is enclosed by a steel and glass balustrade and is laid to slate making it an outstanding outside entertaining area during the Summer months. To the rear of the property the boundary borders National Trust land on Hardown Hill that rarely has livestock on it and is ideal for dog walking throughout the year with views to the North across the Marshwood Vale. The plot extends to approximately 0.58 acres.

Agent's Note: The furniture in the house is available to purchase by separate negotiation.
