Number One Coach House in Seaview.






Tel...01983 812266

A STUNNING, open-plan area, perfect to cook, eat and relax, is at the heart of a characterful period cottage in Seaview.

Part of the original farm buildings of Seagrove Manor Farm, Number One Coach House is one of seven homes set around a courtyard.

Although the cottage feels like a rural retreat, the village of Seaview is within easy walking distance. A short stroll away, down a footpath through beautiful woodland, is Seagrove Bay.

The stone cottage has been extended upwards and outwards by the owners and now has four bedrooms and two spacious reception rooms, laid out on several levels.

While it is currently a second home, also used for holiday lets, the house would make a luxurious permanent family home.

The front door opens into a large entrance hall, with stairs leading to the first floor. Solid oak flooring extends throughout the ground floor.

The cosy sitting room has an exposed ceiling beam and a deep bow window overlooking the garden. There is a corner fireplace with open grate, stone hearth and mantle beam.

Down a few steps is the kitchen/dining/family room, a fabulous, light, bright space with a bespoke fitted kitchen on one side and the dining room on the other.

The kitchen has duck-egg blue Shaker-style units, white Corian worktops and two inset sinks. Integral appliances include a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer.

There is space for a large range cooker, under a concealed extractor fan.

The dining/family room has a vaulted ceiling with Velux windows and an exposed stone wall.

Full-length windows and French doors provide panoramic views of the garden.

Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom and large, modern bathroom, with bath, separate shower cubicle, wc and washbasin. Above the bathroom is a loft room, suitable for use as a children’s playroom, with Velux windows.

Upstairs are three bedrooms, the large master bedroom, another double and a single. There is also a bathroom with bath, wc and washbasin.

The garden is laid out on different levels, with a paved terrace outside the dining room and a deck on a lower level. Children will love the tree house at the bottom of the garden.

Surrounded by woodland, the garden is beautifully peaceful and secluded. A large shed provides storage.
