1960s Sun, Seclusion & Sea Views

Here is a rare gem that offers peace and privacy from an elevated, leafy spot. Blessed with sunshine and sea views, a special charm exists inside and out. Over two floors are 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and wonderful outdoor spaces including decks and an enticing, circular brick patio off the master bedroom. Gardens have been lovingly developed to provide ultimate pleasure, with the need only to maintain and tame. Back inside, the spaces are equally delightful. There is a reassuring feeling of solidity. Character features and a textural palette add interest and comfort. The original 'hostess kitchen' has been pristinely preserved and is open plan to the living/dining room. There is an internal access garage, a carport and 2 further off-street spaces. Come along soon and feel this house for yourself - I think you'll love it!

Enter the character filled entrance hall from your internal access garage, or enjoy the thrill of arrival up the leafy path and into the front door.

This lovely room is light and bright, with gorgeous views to the harbour. This room is filled with texture from the timber ceiling and floor, plus a gorgeous schist surround to the atmospheric open fire. A floor standing heat pump adds instant heat efficiency.

The instructions on how to care for your Hostess Kitchen remain inside a cupboard door.
