An idyllic village house in desirable coastal village just 8 miles from a station. Beautifully finished with masses of character and a large eat-in kitchen with access onto a cottage garden.
The property is Grade II Listed and occupies an idyllic location in a conservation area at the heart of the village. A quote from the listing states "
C17/C18 or earlier. Timber framed and rough rendered. Grey slate double range roof. 2 storeys. 2 window range of vertically sliding sashes with glazing bars, moulded surrounds
..To the right is a forward gabled crosswing with grey slate and red pantiled roof, part plastered, part painted brick faced
probably a former shop window."
The house has been the subject of a number of key improvements by the present owners since they purchased it in 2009. These include a two-storey extension, which has created a considerably larger eat-in kitchen with access straight onto the garden, a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and another first floor bathroom. They have also treated the timber frame and renewed the windows, upgraded the insulation, replaced the boiler and central heating system and reconfigured the stairs.
The interior provides a comfortable, spacious living area, with an impressive sitting room (believed to have been at one time a wheelwright's workshop) with vaulted ceiling and mezzanine floor, a dining room, a snug, a 23' kitchen, a utility room, four charming bedrooms with attractive outlooks over the front and rear gardens, a first floor shower room and a first floor bathroom.
A substantial outbuilding to the right of the house was previously used as a carpenter's workshop and the rear has been converted to provide a centrally-heated self-contained office, store and WC. The building also has its own three-phase electricity supply and access via a separate driveway. Because of its height, the workshop could easily be used for boat storage but also offers enormous potential for conversion into additional living accommodation (subject to the necessary consents).
The house stands in well-established gardens and grounds and is screened at the front by a beautiful, well-established cottage garden. A driveway to the left of the property leads towards the rear of the house, a detached garage and the back garden, which has a large lawn edged by herbaceous borders, a vegetable garden and a greenhouse.

If you are looking for the very best of village life then this really is it. The house is in the perfect spot, close to the village pub, within walking distance of the water and best of all it's immaculate, so all the hard work has been done for you. I love it!Phaedra Howard
