Ground Floor With an idyllic setting, enter this imposing property via a lovely hallway with a seat bench and storage for coats and shoes. This then leads to the superb ?living kitchen? with a dining area which has a baronial feel ? the lovely high ceilings with the magnificent original beams give the living space a spacious and light atmosphere and it's an ideal spot to sit with a glass of wine and watch the chef hard at work! Very well-equipped with quality appliances such as a retro Smeg fridge and Smeg kettle and toaster, plus a separate integral freezer, dishwasher, a large range gas oven plus, during the winter months, a wonderful Aga, this is an excellent kitchen with plenty of work surfaces to prepare meals. In the dining area, which has a wall-mounted TV, is a long oak dining table with upholstered chairs to seat ten people ? perfect to enjoy breakfast or to light candles in the evening and enjoy a long, leisurely dinner, sharing the day's adventures.
Beyond the kitchen is a useful utility room which has a washing machine with integral dryer and space for airing clothes ? such as bathing costumes as the family come in off the beach in the summer or outerwear for walkers during the autumn and winter months - plus an iron and ironing board. The main living space is truly impressive; bordered by a unique and open staircase, there are essentially three areas to this vast room. Centrally is a small study area with a desk ? ideal for writing postcards ? plus comfortable leather chairs and book shelves ? perfect to relax and read.
At one end is a wonderful seating area, framing a log burning stove with comfortable leather Parker-Knoll style sofas, book cases, large screen TV with integral DVD player.
