Elegant Edwardian village house with over 4,700 sq ft of accommodation, level gardens, sea views, horseshoe drive and double garage.
The Gate House occupies the major part of a beautiful Edwardian house dating from 1906. This wonderful family home with original features typical of the Edwardian era offers elegant and generous proportions with high ceilings, ornate moulding, beautiful panelling and large sash windows, some with floor to ceiling shutters. The house and gardens have been meticulously maintained and are presented superbly throughout, although a little updating might be required. The entrance hall is decadent in size with a huge floor to ceiling sash window and beautiful fireplace. The drawing room has a triple bay window with window seat overlooking the gardens and open fire. The dining room also benefits from an open fire and has French Windows leading to the glazed covered veranda and gardens beyond. There is a generous study, again with two large sash windows and an open fire. The kitchen / breakfast room is farmhouse in style with a herringbone parquet floor, a range of units and an oil fired Aga. The utility is situated off the kitchen and offers a large walk in larder, cloakroom and a rear door leading to the courtyard with three outdoor stores.
The first floor comprises five double bedrooms and a smaller single bedroom. There are four bathrooms in total and a first floor kitchen area. There are glorious sea views from the front elevation.
The basement measures over 400 sq ft and is divided into three rooms, offering ample storage and housing the boiler.
The grounds are simply gorgeous, being well-established, full of colour and offering sea views. The gardens are level and mainly laid to lawn with shrub and flower borders, mature hedging and stone walling. A gate leads to the walled kitchen garden which is again lawned and offers vegetable beds, fruit cage and large Victorian style greenhouse.
The Gate House is approached through large stone pillars with double gates and the horseshoe drive leads to the double garage and ample parking.
