The house has been substantially extended and modernised to a fantastic standard to make a delightful property in a frontline position for the beach.
It is entered by a wide entrance hallway with a double height stairwell where light streams in from high windows. The master bedroom suite is on the left in a room with an amazing floor-to-ceiling window cleverly designed and angled towards the water to give an astounding vista to wake to in the morning. Wardrobes are discreetly in the corner of the room and are adjacent to the en suite shower room.
Rising to the first floor via the timber staircase is a vast and impressive open plan living room with an abundance of light from the multiple windows and bi-fold doors. The room is loosely divided into the sitting room and dining area. The focal point is the incredible sea view. The bi-fold doors open onto the covered decking which is the perfect place to enjoy alfresco dining, looking over the beach and out to sea.
The dining area is adjacent to the well-appointed kitchen which has a range of wall and floor mounted units in a country kitchen style, butler sink, AEG double oven, induction hob, integral dishwasher, larder cupboard and the always popular wine fridge.
