Guide Price £1,600,000
A very stylish and contemporary detached home, recently renovated throughout and extended to exacting standards, located on the edge of this much favoured coastal village with the benefit of beautifully landscaped gardens and a stunning self contained annexe.
Seaview is an extremely well-presented and modern family home, having undergone a complete renovation and extension project by the current owners. The property has been beautifully finished adding many stylish and contemporary elements including an integrated Sonus audio system, underfloor heating, Cat5 wiring, wifi system (including within the garden) and smart heating.
A particular feature is the stunning and open plan kitchen/sitting and dining area. Flooded by natural light via concertina doors overlooking the landscaped gardens, this contemporary space is ideal for families and entertaining. Features include integrated and modern appliances, exposed steel beams and recessed LED lighting above the dining area.
Accessed from the central hallway there is a further sitting room (with feature fire place) and a substantial utility room, cloakroom and ground floor shower room, ideal for coastal living.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms. The double height rear main bedroom provides ample built-in storage cupboards and access to a large balcony (with teak decking and glass balustrades) overlooking the garden. The main bathroom is a stunning feature with underfloor heating, contemporary fixtures, attractive wood panelling and double walk-in shower unit to one end.
The two forward double bedrooms both have access to independent second floor accommodation, one of which provides a smart en suite bathroom, dressing room and far reaching viewings towards the coast and sea. A fourth bedroom/study completes the first floor.
Outside and to the rear of the property there is a substantial detached outbuilding which comprises a garage and a self contained two storey annexe. In our opinion this accommodation is ideal for use by an au pair or relative or Bed and Breakfast opportunity. On the ground floor there is good sized L-shaped and open plan kitchen, dining and seating area with a wood burning stove, and a shower room to one side. Stairs lead to a first floor landing off which lead two double bedrooms, both with access to eves storage.
Seaview is approached via electric gates where to the front and side of the property there is parking for a number of vehicles. To the front of the property there is a modern detached garage store. In all the property lies within a quarter of an acre with the main garden situated towards the rear. This is mainly laid to lawn with many flowering shrubs and plants within the borders. Immediately outside the house there is a substantial patio, ideal for al fresco dining, and further down the garden there is a decked seating area. The annexe provides a further decked seating area behind and a detached garden store. An outdoor shower (with hot water) is also provided along with plumbing for a hot tub. The front and rear garden has a water irrigation system along with electric lighting and a Sonus sound system.
Throughout the property a comprehensive and modern security system has been installed.
