A newly refurbished detached, individual home located in a tucked away position at the heart of a sought-after village and enjoying far-reaching views to the sea. Well presented accommodation including 4 bedrooms. South and west facing gardens. EPC Band D.


Lambrook is a superb detached home which is located in a tucked-away position at the heart of ever-popular Shipton Gorge backing on to fields with stunning, seemingly endless views of the surrounding countryside to the sea. Built to an exacting, individual specification in 1982 by highly-reputed local builders, C.G Fry and Son, the property has been thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of the glorious outlook whilst maintaining spacious proportions and great flexibility, including scope to create an annexe on the ground floor if required. Under the current ownership, an extensive programme of refurbishment and updating has been carried out to a high standard, resulting in a comfortable, convenient and stylish home suitable for a broad variety of lifestyles.

As a result of the extensive improvements carried out, numerous superb features can be found throughout. The list is seemingly endless but amongst those of particular note are the fitted kitchen with quartz worktops, the contemporary bath- and shower room suites, the oak veneer internal doors and the new wood burner in the sitting room. A useful utility room and separate store/workshop have been created from the former garage, and some of the uPVC windows and doors have been upgraded.

Karndean-style flooring and fitted carpets have been used to great effect whilst less visible improvements have included a new boiler and unvented tank, new radiators throughout, and fitting of mains-operated smoke alarms. Outside, landscaping works have transformed the gardens and the balcony adjoining the kitchen has also been refurbished to create a wonderful setting for spending time out of doors.

The versatility of the accommodation is most prevalent on the ground floor where there is are three well proportioned bedrooms including the principal bedroom which has potential to create an ensuite shower room if desired. Also on the ground floor is a shower room with a walk-in shower, the utility room and adjoining store room/workshop and a charming sun lounge which enjoys direct access to the garden. With the ability to easily create all facilities on this level, there is great potential to create a self-contained, step-free annexe. Upstairs the accommodation includes a further bedroom; a bath/shower room; a relaxing sitting room with dual aspect windows, a wood burner; and the kitchen/dining room from which a door opens directly to the balcony.


The property is approached along a long, gated driveway which leads to a parking and turning area, providing space for several vehicles. Facing principally south and west, the gardens are arranged to the side and rear of the property and, owing to the set back position in which Lambrook stands with nothing beyond the rear boundary but open fields, have a wonderfully private aspect which makes spending time out of doors a true joy. The fantastic views can be enjoyed to their fullest advantage from the gardens and in particular on the balcony to which steps rise from the garden. Primarily laid to lawn with well-stocked flower and shrub borders and a dedicated produce garden, those with green fingers will be well at home here whilst those who prefer to relax outside will no doubt appreciate the two ornamental ponds, the summerhouse and the very secluded sun deck, all of which provide an inviting setting. There is also a shed, providing excellent storage for garden equipment.
