About this property

  • Pyne Cliff is an attractive stone house draped in wisteria in a glorious setting within beautiful mature gardens with views out to sea. It is not listed but believed to be of Georgian origin and many of the period features remain adding to its overall charm. Of particular note is the fine cornicing, pretty fireplaces, large panelled and shuttered windows, elegant oak parquet flooring and all of the ground floor front facing rooms have the original stone window frames.

    Outside, the mature gardens and grounds offer all the pleasures of an English country garden and are naturally dominated by the coastal views. There are generous herbaceous borders, large expanses of lawn, magnificent trees, wild grass paths through woodland, a natural spring stream flowing to ponds with ornate bridges, sculpted hedges and a vegetable garden.

    The array of colourful plants include wisteria, magnolia, rhododendrons, viburnums, hydrangeas and camellias. Where there used to be a swimming pool next to the conservatory is a levelled lawn perfect for croquet or large scale outdoor entertaining. The walled vegetable garden is positioned behind the house and is flanked by a pretty avenue of trees which connects the house, cottage and outbuildings.

    The grass pathways are surrounded by a carpet of blue bells in the Spring and ascend to a magical outlook point offering breathtaking views that stretch both east and west along the coast. Perfect for sundowners.

    In addition, there is Pyne Cliff Cottage, converted from a former coach house over two floors, which has recently been modernised.

    At the rear of the property, a separate tarmac drive leads from Ware Lane to a substantial parking area for both the cottage and the main house. Behind a mature beech hedge is a Heritage-style double garage and workshop. A further barn provides ample garden storage.
