About the property

DESCRIPTION This pretty detached cottage style property, built by Reade’s in the 1950s, was substantially remodelled and extended some thirty years ago following a catastrophic fire. The local newspaper at the time reported that the elderly resident was only saved by the sharp wits of a local policeman who raised the alarm when he noticed flames coming from the house as he bicycled home late in the evening.

The downstairs accommodation is spacious with a good sized double aspect sitting room, another very good sized reception room in addition to the dining room, kitchen and a utility/work room. Upstairs are three bedrooms, the master with en-suite bathroom and a second family bathroom. A real delight is the very large garden which extends to some half an acre in total. The property has been well maintained by the current owners but could now benefit from some cosmetic updating.

This is a lovely home with a wonderful garden situated within easy distance of the town centre and sea. There is masses of potential for further development subject to appropriate planning consents. Properties such as this are rarely available and early viewing is essential.
