Unique is an understatement when used to describe this amazing home that bursts with character in every nook and cranny. The heady mix of stone and warm wooden tones add to the sense of solidity and permanence of this residence. Beautifully maintained and presented, the house belies its front-most façade with accommodation spread over three floors.
Not an inch of space has been wasted and this home has been cleverly designed to provide snug corners to read a book or a place to play the piano. There are some unusual features that a new owner might like to take up the challenge of slight re-design and thereby adding their stamp on the history of this property. One such feature is the contra-current swim pool and Jacuzzi that sit just off the kitchen, in this open plan kitchen, living, dining space (with underfloor heating) which has cloister-like arches that make up the whole of the ground floor. The pool has been drained and covered with a floor as the current owners have small children but another solution would be to install partition walls in either a contemporary glass or some other medium. The kitchen also boasts an Aga. There is a utility room and a shower room, handy for the pool. Three sets of French doors from the living space and pool open to the garden.
The middle floor is level with the front entrance and includes the sitting room and two bedrooms which share a Jack and Jill bathroom. One of these bedrooms is currently utilised as a workshop but this can be restored to a bedroom easily. The upper floor has three further bedrooms and a shower room. The master bedroom has another unusual feature of a free-standing bath in the room and a walk-in closet.
Parking is available nearby and the residents permit scheme is coming into force in October 2019.
The train station is a few minutes walk from the house making this an ideal commuter location and the park and beach are just at the end of the road. If you are an aficionado of a period property, this is one for you. If you are looking for a stylish, elegant and quirky residence of character, this is also a home for you. If you are looking for space to spread out in or entertain frombe quick. This home is exquisite.
