    About this property

    • Bar Lodge, a well presented semi-detached property, was built in 1902 and is typical of the Edwardian period.

      The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, a well presented kitchen/living area, double bedroom and a shower room. From the entrance hall, stairs rise to the first floor which offers a further 3 bedrooms and a further large family bathroom.
      The lower ground floor offers a second kitchen, sitting room, dining room and shower room. Alternatively, the lower ground floor makes an ideal self-contained annex with the dining room becoming a spacious double bedroom if required. All three floors benefit from direct access to adjoining terraces and needless to say all the principle rooms enjoy truly spectacular views.

      The gardens are a delight at Bar Lodge and offer a lovely setting for alfresco entertaining in the sunshine whilst enjoying these glorious and hard to beat views. The gardens are well established and home to a large variety of coastal shrubs and flowers with potential access (currently unsafe and in need of repair) leading to a small private beach. There is off street parking for 2/3 vehicles.

      Please note permission has been granted for the owners to build themselves a new detached house within the grounds on the south elevation. FYI, if looking at the house from the sea, the permission includes the demolition of the ground floor side extension to the left, including the flat roofed garden room. Please visit planning reference number 2224/18/FUL to see the decision notice and approved plans.

    Although Bar Lodge has been the main home for the current owners for over 20 years, they describe it as their holiday home because they always feel like they are on holiday!
