A striking and contemporary detached residence, set within a generous plot in an elevated position, which afford spectacular views over countryside and out to sea. The current owners have spent the last three years almost completely rebuilding and renovating the property, which has culminated in a high specification family home with an interesting mix of rustic and contemporary styles.

To the left of the entrance hall, there is an impressive dual aspect sitting room, with a splendid exposed brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and double glazed sliding doors to the front terrace and the rear garden.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is a lovely triple aspect kitchen/dining room, also with double glazed sliding doors which open onto the front terrace. The kitchen has been fitted with an excellent range of traditionally styled wall an d floor units, set around wood block work surfaces, a Butler sink, an island/breakfast bar and an extensive range of appliances, including a range cooker, an American style fridge/freezer, a microwave, a dish washer and two wine coolers. Completing the ground floor accommodation, there is a useful cloakroom/utility room, just off the entrance hall.
On the first floor, a large central landing leads to four bedrooms (two of which are large doubles) and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a high quality traditionally styled suite, including a freestanding slipper bath, adjacent to a striking, split slate feature wall.
The master bedroom is a generously proportioned room, with distressed wood effect flooring, built-in wardrobes and a stylish and contemporary wet room, with a walk-in shower enclosure.
The property is set within a generous plot of close to a quarter of an acre and is approached via along, gravelled driveway. The house sits towards the rear of the plot, with a large front garden which is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by railway sleepers. There is ample parking for numerous vehicles and a brick built garage with an electric roller door. A split slate fronted set of steps leads up to a large, paved sun terrace to the front of the house, which affords wonderful views over the surrounding countryside and out to sea.
A five bar gate provides access to the rear garden, which measures approximately 67 ft x 30 ft. This is mainly laid to lawn, with raised flowerbeds enclosed by railway sleepers. There is a full width patio and decking across the rear of the house, with a hot tub which is available by separate negotiation.
