Property Description

Built by the current owners in the early 1980s and further developed on two separate occasions, this beautiful home is a deceptively extensive property providing highly flexible accommodation and which sits on an elevated site in the heart of the island, enjoying superb views across the Island and coast beyond from a number of its rooms. The split level nature of the house provides a number of large and versatile reception areas, with just three highlights being the very large kitchen / dining / family space; the equally large conservatory running alongside and the beautiful first floor sitting room offering the best of the aforementioned panoramic views. There are two superb bedroom suites with ensuite bathrooms and separate dressing areas, together with a further 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom. Externally, the gardens are beautifully maintained and provide a number of sheltered private seating areas, there is extensive parking in addition to the double garage, whilst the undoubted final highlight are the two most recent additions - a leisure complex incorporating pool and sauna, with a quite beautiful, fully glazed home office situated above and which again enjoys stunning views. An amazing home in a quiet location with accommodation to suit a wide variety of needs.
