With its wonderful sea views, the beach only yards away, village amenities almost on the doorstep and sailing facilities close by, a Seaview home is one you would never want to leave.
It has been that way for the owners of 24 Sandcove Rise, who moved into the superbly located detached property when it was built around 30 years ago.
They have loved the spectacular double-aspect views of a wide stretch of the eastern Solent taking in St Helens Fort, from its elevated spot in a quiet cul-de-sac and being a short walk from the village centre.
Arranged in upside-down style to make the most of its glorious outlook, the home has flexible accommodation, warmed by gas central heating and with PVCu double glazing.
This includes four bedrooms, an exceptionally airy lounge with magnificent sea views, a separate dining room, also with a sea outlook, a kitchen with space for a small table, a shower room and a wet room shower.
A sunny south-facing back garden, which can be reached via steps down from the kitchen, is a delightful area, with a lawn and a wide array of shrubs in a bed and borders.
There is also a concealed clothes drying area and a gate to a grassed rear park area, a communal space maintained by the residents and for their use only.
At the front of the house and with side access to the back garden are grassed areas, with shrubs and parking space for up to four cars.
A double-sized integral garage has a remote controlled electric up-and-over door, light and power, plumbing for a washing machine, a storage area and a door to the ground-floor lobby.
Quarry tile steps rise to the front door opening into a bright hallway, with neutral coloured carpet, a built-in coat cupboard and a large airing cupboard.
An abundance of natural light streams into the good-sized sitting room through floor-to-ceiling front windows framing glorious sea views and through a side window looking out to the sea and the fort.
Also with a sea view is the front-facing dining room, with a serving hatch to the kitchen.
Looking onto the back garden and with a door to steps down to it is the kitchen, which is fitted with a range of beech-effect wall and floor units and has a built-in gas hob, with an extractor and electric oven under.
The two bedrooms on the first floor — one with built-in wardrobes — are both rear-facing, with views over the garden to the green communal area.
Completing this floor is a wet room, with walls fully tiled in white, non-slip flooring, a WC, pedestal hand basin and large walk-in shower.
On the ground floor are two more bedrooms overlooking the back garden and a shower room, with a shower cubicle, WC and handbasin.
