This substantial period house has been extended in recent years with a wonderful, large, high-quality sunroom which is a perfect for entertaining or as a large family games room.
This period house has been meticulously maintained and has immaculate grounds with formal gardens to the rear and side. An extensive lawn leads down away from the house in an eastward direction and is enclosed with hedging on both sides. The grounds are well stocked with wonderful specimen plants and mature trees giving a stunning backdrop for the manicured garden.
There is an imposing formal dining room located between the kitchen and sitting room which enjoys high ceilings and excellent proportions. Most of the principal rooms in the house enjoy spectacular views and an entrance hall that reflects the period features of the era. A large sitting room with feature fireplace and high ceilings is located on the southerly side of the house and leads through to the sunroom. A modern bespoke kitchen has been fitted in recent years and has the benefits of an adjoining breakfast room, utility room and larder. A side-door leads out to the terrace and garaging.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms – all of which offers fabulous views. An attractive and large landing leads to the bedrooms and family bathroom. There are good views from the window at the top of the stairs. The principal bedroom suite has superb views over the River Yar and Downs and benefits from a large bathroom with central feature bath. There are plenty of bespoke wardrobes in the double aspect bathroom and bedroom. At the north end of the first floor is a guest suite with a bathroom. There are doors leading to the stairs to the second floor, which comprises of a vast open attic (partly boarded) space, which would be perfect for conversion should further bedrooms be required (subject to obtaining planning permission).
The house has a high level of privacy and seclusion and is a short walk from the centre of Yarmouth. An attractive sweeping asphalt driveway leads up to the house alongside majestic beech and apple trees to a turning circle area directly alongside the front door. A large utility room adjoins the house. Attached to the utility room is a triple garage. There is close by access out to the River Yar Footpath and it’s a short walk from the Harbour and River Yar Boat Yard – perfect for keeping a boat close to the house. The historic harbourside town of Yarmouth has a good range of amenities, regular ferry service to Lymington and there are well supported/ vibrant sailing and yacht clubs.
