With Georgian origins the charming stone built home offers 4 double bedrooms and 3 reception rooms in a most enviable position. The current owner has completed a quite stunning renovation with every room being subject to a stylish improvement with an excellent eye for detail. In addition, this beautiful arrangement offers 3 immaculate cottages, 1 of which with residential status but all let as holiday accommodation.


A front porch with stable door leads into a large kitchen with a range of base units with solid oak work surfaces and matching central island/breakfast bar. Exposed stone and ceiling beams add a farmhouse feel. A utility room to the rear of the kitchen creates further work space having matching cupboards and work surfaces as well as a Belfast sink and space for a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a convenient cloak room off the utility room. Adjacent to the kitchen is the comfortable sitting room with featured wood burner sited within a lovely stone fireplace with slate hearth. French doors allow light to stream in from the side of the house. The dining room to the rear of the sitting room, which also has French doors to the side garden, could easily become a child's play room or study. A large conservatory is accessed from the kitchen and is a superb room to enjoy the views over the garden. Throughout the ground floor there is American Oak Amtico flooring.

The first floor comprises four generous double bedrooms enjoying modernised décor with splashes of character appearing throughout, notable the gorgeous exposed stone in bedroom one and solid oak flooring. There is a family bathroom with a claw foot bath and separate shower and an additional shower room with a more contemporary finish in a marble style fully tiled floor and walls and a large shower. Two bedrooms enjoy balconies, one with distant sea views and the other overlooking and providing access to the beautiful rear garden.

Throughout, the house provides superb views over the surrounding countryside – particularly surprising given the convenient village location.

Every let is beautifully presented with impeccable style and perfectly equipped and arranged for a holiday homes with sociable open plan kitchen/living areas and each enjoy their own private outside space and parking.
