Available for the first time in over 40 years, this fully renovated apartment offers an incredibly rare opportunity for seafront living.
Step inside and let a first class parquet floor lead the way to the beautifully light filled kitchen and living/dining room that combine to give a wonderfully fluid feel. With natural light tumbling in through sea-facing sash bow windows, the tranquil living/dining room is an enviable place to relax and entertain. An excellent multi-fuel burner sits within the exposed brickwork of the fireplace giving a homely focal point, while discreet infrared heating is subtly incorporated into the ceiling negating the need for radiators. Heavenly for those hot summer evenings or lazy afternoons, French doors entice you out into the private courtyard garden for al fresco dining. Made by local craftsmen, the superb kitchen is supremely appointed with Shaker-style cabinets and wood countertops housing an array of integrated appliances and a butler sink. Its clever design allows for a breakfast table and American-style fridge freezer, and has the added benefit of a bar stool dining area.
The high spec heating and parquet floors continue in a tremendous principal bedroom with a wealth of fitted wardrobes. A demi-glazed door gives further access to the garden, while a fabulous en suite has underfloor heating, a glass-framed waterfall shower and superior freestanding bathtub. The second double bedroom has French doors to a terrace and a large fitted desk space, and deep heritage blue walls add a sultry splash of colour to a shower room that echoes the cohesive themes that make this apartment so special.
Enclosed and private, the commendably sized south-facing courtyard garden is a secluded spot to sit back and relax in the sun and offers direct access to the promenade, which means that you can be dipping your toes in the sea in a matter of seconds. A separate terrace has steps that lead discreetly up to the apartment’s off-road parking space.
“The sea facing garden gets the sun all day and fills place with light. One of the many joys of living in this privileged place is that when you open the windows you just hear the sea, not traffic and of course you are right on the seafront so you have no roads to cross to get onto the promenade.
The location is amazing. Just a couple of minutes along the road is one of the best bakers in town, followed by an organic grocer and an old fashioned pub. Recent additions have included a coffee shop and Co op supermarket amongst other useful shops and restaurants.
Not so much now, but when I first moved here and was doing regular trips to London, it was very handy having the train station just a 15 minute walk away.
The flat itself is spacious with plenty of storage. It keeps cool in the summer and warm in the winter thanks to the double glazing and heater panels in the ceiling.”
