First time on the market since new this 20 year old traditionally constructed house, half of a pair, enjoys outstanding and unrestricted views from the church tower of St Anne, to the harbour and Braye beach and across to France seven miles distant.
This well appointed immaculately maintained architect designed property, with windows facing south, south east/ south, south west and north west catching sun all day and dramatic sunsets by night, sits in the middle of Alderney golf course surrounded by greenbelt land and close to the islands main beaches.
Set within traditional stone walls and mature hedges this ‘upside down’ house has an inner lawn accessed direct from the kitchen off a sun deck and its own private gate onto the golf course. An old stone wall separates this inner garden from an extensive lawned meadow with mown paths through it. There are several mature trees and even a flourishing walnut in this mature hedge bounded wildflower meadow. Also a small, fully screened by stone wall and hedge, secluded garden to the rear of the meadow with dramatic views of Fort Albert and the harbour through an arch in its hedge.
Built on several different levels on this elevated sloping site one enters the house off the private drive into a hall giving access to the integral garage, a family bathroom and walk in under stair storage. A few steps up gives access to a double and single bedroom.
On the next level landing is the main bedroom which runs across the entire stone clad front of the house with its ensuite shower room. This room enjoys unrestricted views to the harbour, Braye beach and Fort Albert across the golf course.
The next landing, a short flight up, gives access to a cloakroom and a wood floored kitchen and dining area. This sunny room has a glazed door onto a sun deck and thence the inner lawned garden. Windows on one wall look to the garden and Fort Essex the other, in the dining area, looks across the golf course to wooded areas maintained by the Wildlife Trust.
A short flight of stairs then brings one into the vaulted split level day long sun filled reception areas at the top of the house. Windows on three sides afford panoramic views.
Formal dining on the lower level of this dramatic beamed room affords views of the most spectacular sunsets right out to the Caskets lighthouse. It currently also doubles as an extra sitting room. The higher level, with its chimney breast and lintel housing a gas fire, is a comfortable sitting room with fitted bookcases enjoying views to Essex Castle, fields and beyond across the Alderney Race to France.
The oil storage tank is to the side of the house and the gas storage to the rear. There is parking on the drive and a roadside gate into the gardens.
The current owners have identified extension opportunities, if desired, subject to the usual planning permission requirements.
