PROPERTY OF THE WEEK Whether you are taking in wide Solent views or looking at beautifully laid out back gardens, the outlook is great at Seaways.

There is always something to see through large windows at the detached, three-bedroom house, in Main Road, Bouldnor, on the outskirts of Yarmouth.

An ever-changing parade of boats, from Old Gaffers to naval vessels, ferries to dinghies, feature in the sea views from the kitchen and big bedroom two/study, which also has access to a small balcony.

Relax in the large rear conservatory, added by the owners, and whatever the season you will find lots to please the eye.

The gardens are the owners’ pride and joy and have been carefully planned. Roses, trees and shrubs abound in the back garden and there and in the front garden is an array of bulbs, providing spring colour.

Steps descend from the conservatory to an extensive paved patio, a sunny south-facing area. Beyond are gravelled areas, with inset shrubs and raised vegetable and fruit beds. A central path leads through an archway to a lawn, greenhouse and small shed.

Secure double gates open to the front garden. To the other side is a small deck and space for a small boat.

Planted borders front a lawn in the front garden. A gravelled drive provides parking for several cars and leads to a detached garage with electric up-and-over door and power and lighting.

Seaways is within easy reach of coastal and country walks, as well as Yarmouth’s ferry and shops.

The comfortable, double-glazed and gas centrally heated accommodation has fresh white paintwork, interior doors with glazed panels and calming, aqua-coloured walls in many areas.

Sea views start from the driveway and can be admired through a big front window in the enclosed entrance porch.

In the wide entrance hall beyond is a cupboard beneath stairs to the first floor. Leading off the hall is the airy kitchen, which has views to the mainland.

As well as white wall and floor units, there is a breakfast bar, built-in hob, extractor and double oven and space and plumbing for a dishwasher and fridge-freezer.

The versatile lounge/diner has a large window and door to the 17ft by 14ft conservatory, with a purpose-built cloaks cupboard and cupboard with plumbing for a washing machine.

Also housing purpose-built storage cupboards is rear-facing bedroom one, which has an en-suite WC.

The first-floor landing, which has a built-in bookcase and cupboard, leads to two more good-sized bedrooms and a spacious bathroom. This has a shower cubicle, WC, handbasin, storage and airing cupboards and a walk-in bath with whirlpool jets and a side sea view.

Sea and mainland views, taking in Yarmouth Pier and extending to Southampton Water, can be seen from bedroom two, which is used as an office.

Bedroom three overlooks the back garden and has a side countryside view.
