An exceptional house in an exceptional location. Without doubt ‘Seagrove’ is one of the most outstanding houses to be built in The Bay in recent years, when coupled with its fantastic location abutting the National Trust owned cliff tops with wonderful panoramic views over the bay and Channel this really is a very special opportunity not to be missed.
Built by a well-respected local building company, Seagrove was completed in 2021 to the vendors exacting specifications. The design maximises on the wonderful location and views. The house is U shaped with the principal rooms looking out over the Channel and into a central open courtyard. Most of the windows are floor to ceiling to give stunning views but also to let light flood in. You enter the house through a spacious hall with windows overlooking the landscaped front garden, this leads into the dining hall, an impressive double height space with double height floor to ceiling windows, this opens into the Kitchen/Breakfast room. Sliding pocket doors hide a Utility room and a Snug/TV room. The sitting room leads off the dining hall, a double width pocket door gives the option of shutting it off to create a cosy room or open plan for entertaining.
From the hall an oak staircase leads up to an impressive Galleried Landing, with great views down over the dining hall and through the double height windows to the Bay and Channel. There are 2 self-contained bedroom suites, both have uninterrupted views over The Bay and Channel.
