Full Details

This much-loved home has been owned by my clients for nine years and during this time they have significantly upgraded the property throughout. Meonshore House is set behind a brick wall with an extensive block paved driveway providing ample parking, in addition to a single garage. The front porch is a later addition built by my clients in 2022 and has been fitted with bespoke cupboards, Karndean flooring; double doors leading to the Entrance Hall showcasing the wonderful high ceilings, picture rails, black and white tiled floor and the original staircase. The gracious reception rooms to the front of the house are beautifully proportioned and feature large picture windows overlooking the sea; the Study has been fitted with bespoke oak bookshelves, a desk and sideboard as well as centring on a cast iron fireplace with gas coal effect fire with granite hearth and oak surround. The adjacent dual aspect Sitting Room is filled with light and has been fitted with an elegant Chesneys woodburning stove with stone hearth and surround. To the rear of the house is a superb open plan Kitchen/Dining Room providing the perfect space for a modern lifestyle with picture windows and double doors leading to the garden. The Kitchen itself was refitted by my clients in 2017 with cream shaker style cupboards with solid oak worktops, a large Butler’s sink, a walk-in pantry cupboard and a large breakfast bar. Bi-fold doors lead from the Kitchen into the gorgeous Amdega Sun Room offering a relaxing space showcasing the garden. There is a further Cinema Room leading off the Kitchen, which could easily be converted to a Guest Bedroom Suite (with plumbing still in situ for an ensuite bathroom). A large Utility Room and Cloakroom complete the ground floor. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, all featuring the original Victorian cast iron fireplaces; Bedroom 1 benefits from wardrobe cupboards and vanity dressing table by Hammonds with a stylish ensuite Shower Room, fitted by my clients in 2019. A further Family Bathroom fitted in 2019 compliments the other bedrooms. The spacious landing features a picture window framing the view and offers the opportunity to convert the large loft space into additional accommodation if needed, subject to the necessary consents. A particular selling feature of this wonderful home are the glorious gardens which have been professionally landscaped and planted with perennial borders providing all year-round interest, as well as specimen trees such as cordyline, chestnut, bay and holly. There are terrace areas for entertaining and relaxing and meandering brick pathways weave through the garden to a woodland area including a glade of Himalayan birch trees surrounded by Inkarho scented Rhododendrons and beyond to a beautiful bespoke Cedar Summerhouse creating an area of repose. There is also an attractive pond with a water feature, as well as a greenhouse and large wooden gardeners shed.
