Property Description

It is an oft overused cliché but in the case of Ocean View, it is hard to imagine that many other local market properties could compete with the quite spectacular sea views enjoyed from both the house and gardens as seen here. Extensively renovated and upgraded by the existing owners and superbly redesigned to ensure that the views are enjoyed and treated as the focal point of the property, the stylish accommodation provides four bedrooms together with three bath/shower rooms, with the master bedroom and its open ensuite bathroom being particularly spectacular whilst also leading onto a large first floor terrace overlooking the grounds, across L'Eree Bay and towards Lihou Island. The ground floor is dominated by a large open plan living and kitchen area providing the most spectacular of views amidst an ever changing scenic backdrop, together with a separate utility room, office and three of the aforementioned bedrooms. With the site encompassing 1.47 acres and incorporating a heated swimming pool together with separate decked and patio areas enjoying those stunning views, this home truly does have something for everyone. Throw into the mix a separate garage block with gym and approved plans for a further two storey extension incorporating a new master bedroom suite and two further reception rooms and a glazed link to connect old with new, the scope and potential is endless. At the same time, it would be true to say that the pictures really do not do this property justice and viewing is undoubtedly highly recommended.
