A handsome and detached yachtsmans house with beautifully maintained gardens located within this much sought after harbour side village.

Upon entering there is a spacious reception hall with the west facing sitting room situated towards the front. Features include an attractive window seat and an ornate fireplace and surround. The ground floor provides excellent circular flow with a superb kitchen/dining/day room located towards the rear. Off the kitchen there is a walk-in larder. To the side there is a useful boot room, a utility room and a cloakroom. Upstairs the four bedrooms (all with built in wardrobes) are accessed from a wide central landing area. A particular feature is the superb double height rear bedroom with exposed beams and distant rural views towards the South Downs. There are two en suite shower rooms and an additional family bathroom. Above there is substantial loft space.
Gardens, Grounds and Outbuildings
Situated within beautifully maintained grounds of just over a third of an acre, Coltsfoot is approached on a gravel drive where there is ample parking, access to an attached garage, and next to the property, gated access to a parking area which in our opinion is ideal for trailer or dinghy storage. The front garden is bordered by mature hedging and attractive post and rail fencing.
Central to the rear garden is a feature pond housing a variety of specimen plants. Surrounding the pond there is a large area laid to lawn with flowering plants and shrubs within the borders.
Accessed from double doors from the kitchen there is a stunning covered al fresco patio dining area supported by attractive hardwood pillars and pitched glass roofing. Towards the rear of the garden there is a further west facing seating area under a pitched tiled roof.
There are two garden stores and attached to the property there is a useful workshop/craft room.
