A truly stunning residence with striking exterior elevations and interior structure. My clients have resided at the property for over 18 years and have undertaken extensive upgrading and refurbishment works during their ownership to now provide exquisite and characterful accommodation extending to approximately 2800 square feet, which has been fastidiously maintained.
***NO ONWARD CHAIN***
It is apparent as soon as you enter the property that this is no ordinary home; the reception hall is impressive with gloriously high ceilings, cornicing and the original staircase. There are three magnificent reception rooms on the ground floor, all generous in proportions with stunning fireplaces. The kitchen centres on a gas fired Aga and has freestanding shaker style cupboards with beech work tops and open shelving with brass Devol brackets, bi fold doors lead to the delightful gardens. Upstairs, are three impressive bedrooms situated over two floors, all with period fireplaces. There is also a superb guest suite, beautifully hidden and accessed via a 'secret door' from the snug. All bathrooms are beautifully fitted with both contemporary and traditional suites. Outside, the property is approached via wrought iron gates leading to an extensive area of parking. Gated side access leads to the rear garden. This has been lovingly landscaped by my clients creating a truly idyllic setting with mature specimen trees and shrubs, raised vegetable beds, greenhouse and a stone terrace. Situated to the rear is the wooden garage and brick outhouse; the space these occupy and the space adjacent to it offers huge potential to build an ancillary outbuilding if required, stpp. This really is an exciting opportunity to acquire a truly outstanding residence situated in a prime location a short stroll from Stokes Bay and the village amenities. For those looking to combine home and income, the rear of the property has been discreetly divided to provide a glamorous potential coastal lettings unit. It would be suitable for Airbnb, or short term letting (STPP) or alternatively can be used as a self-contained guest suite. The apartment does not intrude on the privacy within the main home, and has an independent door for toing and froing, without the need to enter the main residence. Alternatively, it would make a great office space, or separate wing for a family member wishing to be self-contained
