If sea views are on your wish list, this frontline Victorian residence provides these in abundance. Occupying an exceptional position on the seafront, the home is currently divided into a large four bedroom family home, with a self-contained two bedroom apartment accessed at the rear occupying the second floor. Adjacent to the property is a detached boathouse, with its own shower room, kitchenette and mezzanine sleeping deck. The current owners have benefitted from its accommodation as both a second home and a very lucrative income provider with holiday lettings, throughout the seasons, (the owners are happy to share detailed accounts information, with serious buyers).
The main house, Beach Holme, is beautifully presented with a large conservatory to the front offering a lovely area in which to sit and enjoy the views and this provides access to the large entrance hall. The ground floor accommodation provides three delightful reception rooms, the sitting room and dining room are both sea facing, with a cosy snug to the rear. The kitchen has been partially opened to the dining room to allow interaction between the rooms and to take in the wonderful outlook. Leading from the rear of the kitchen is a large area housing the boiler, plumbing for utilities and a door leading out to an outdoor store area. Additionally, to the ground floor is a bathroom, with cloakroom facilities.
The first floor offers four double bedrooms all accessed from the large open landing space, and both the master bedroom suite and bedroom two grant superb views over the English Channel. The master bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom, which is a substantial room, (once a fifth bedroom). There is extensive fitted storage within the en-suite, allowing this room to serve as both a bathroom and dressing room. There is a beautiful contemporary shower room serving bedrooms two, three and four, which provides a large shower enclosure and has been finished with attractive green contemporary glass tiles.
The two bedroom self-contained apartment, Sea Brae, has its own entrance door at the rear of the property. This leads into a large entrance hall, with ample space to be utilised as a snug, with its own original style fireplace. The inner hallway leads from here to a large second bedroom overlooking the sea, with an adjacent bathroom. Also overlooking the sea is a substantial living/kitchen/dining space, offering ample room for a family dining table, a relaxing seating area, and fitted kitchen with a wealth of cupboards.
The Boat House sits to the side of the main property, and has its own enclosed front deck, an ideal spot to enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful view over the beach and to the sea.
The property has two private parking spaces, and in addition to the front gardens of both the main house and The Boat House, also owns a large area of ground sloping up the rear of the property, through which the footpath which leads to the entrance of Sea Brae runs, and has currently been left wild. For a buyer seeking a property with a proven income alongside their main home, or perhaps just ancillary accommodation for guests, this seafront proposition offers three superb dwellings, all well-presented and spacious, with unobstructed sea views.
