The exceptionally bright, light filled interior includes wonderful period features which are testament to an age when attention to detail was paramount. Original features such as ornate ceiling coving and cornicing, working window shutters and period fireplaces have been retained and are offset by superb modern touches including polished natural stone floors, solid hardwood flooring, Design House bespoke kitchen, fitted wardrobes, bookshelves and state of the art bathrooms.
The formal interconnecting drawing and dining rooms are some of the finest you will encounter and the study on first floor level enjoys dramatic panoramic coastal views. The drawing room opens onto a spacious veranda. This house is ideal for those who wish to entertain at home or for more intimate family occasions.
