Beautifully presented 4 bedroom detached former vicarage offering the best of both Coast and Vale, set in approaching 1 acre

The house was built in 1975 to the centre of its plot and has handsome stone elevations under a slate roof. The house and gardens have undergone a comprehensive programme of renewal and refurbishment including a traditional but stylish handmade kitchen, two bathrooms, a shower room, the central heating system, the oil fired boiler, plank and carpet flooring and redecoration throughout. This is a very polished house indeed.

The scene is set on entering the house, through an entrance lobby, into a spacious hallway laid to Oak herringbone style parquet flooring, with an elegant staircase rising to the first floor. The principal rooms are accessed off the hall and face due South, looking out over the formal gardens taking in the sun throughout the day. To one end of the hall there is a study complete with built-in bookshelves, beside which there is a cloaks/shower room. The sitting room lies to the centre, with a handsome fireplace equipped with a wood burning stove as its focal point and doors to one end opening out onto the terrace and gardens. The kitchen/dining/sitting room lies to the other end of the hall with a kitchen area to one end and a dining/sitting area to the other. The kitchen is handmade with an island unit to the centre and granite worksurfaces, a Falcon induction range cooker and NEFF integrated dishwasher. To the other end of the kitchen is a walk-in larder and next to it a door leads through to a utility/dog and boot room complete with a butler's sink. Beyond there is a gardener's WC and a door through to the integral garage. Upstairs there are four good bedrooms served by two individually equipped and stylish contemporary bathrooms, one en-suite. There is a large boarded attic that has windows in each gable end. The property is double glazed and has private drainage.

The house is approached through a wall-flanked gated entrance, with a drive that sweeps up to the front of the house providing parking for a number of cars and access to the garage. The gardens (0.87 of an acre) are a particular feature of the property, with formal gardens to the rear of the house laid to lawn with a striking formal border in an Ammonite form to the South West and a woodland garden to the South. Each area is well stocked with an array of herbaceous, shrub and tree planting designed to give shape, colour and form throughout the year. Adjacent to the house is a large paved terrace, ideal for outdoor entertaining. To either side of the driveway at the front of the house there are more natural areas flanked by trees, while to one side there is a fenced vegetable garden, equipped with a series of raised beds constructed of railway sleepers. To one side is a greenhouse. The garden is fully fenced, with planting to the edges providing privacy whilst allowing views over the surrounding hills and countryside.
