Skilful design has breathed new life into this historic building with an attention to detail rarely seen on the market. The house boasts generous room sizes with a mix of period charm and new mod cons such as triple-glazed windows and secondary glazing.
The living room with parquet floor stretches the full width of the main building and the ceiling soars over 10ft above your head, and has tastefully chosen seating, which comes with the property. The custom-made kitchen is exceptionally glamorous with dark granite worksurfaces and a magnificent Lacanche multi fuel range cooker which is included with the property, along with other kitchen appliances. Large south facing doors let in plenty of light and slide across, leading out to the private, landscaped garden which isn’t overlooked.
Up on the first floor and facing south the family room is light and airy with windows front and back. Twin sets of French doors open to Juliette balconies with garden views. All three quiet bedrooms on this floor have plenty of character of their own, two with period fireplaces, and tastefully painted in the historic tones of Farrow & Ball. The family bathroom is traditional in style with a fabulous claw foot bath, handsome marble fireplace, Burlington cistern and Victorian hand basin.
The master suite
On the top floor the vaulted master bedroom provides plenty of floor space, south facing triple glazed window looking out with glimpses of the sea and subtle touches such as USB plug sockets. The elegant en suite shower room is lined in natural black slate with a skylight and heated towel rail.
The garage and workshop
With natural light, the garage is large enough to store bicycles and the workshop, currently used as an artist’s studio, can also be accessed by both an external and internal door.
