Unique selling point: Distant sea views across the countryside further add to the desirability of this property, which has been refurbished to the very highest standards throughout.

Tu-Jays is a real gem of a property, having been thoroughly re-modelled by a professional surveyor and builder. Ready-made for one lucky family to move into, the heart of the home is the living room, which spans the depth of the property to one side. It incorporates both living and dining areas, with dual aspect windows and wide sliding doors to the pretty rear garden making it wonderfully light.

An attractive woodburning stove, made by Charnwood on the Island, is the focal point, and one of the many improvements made to this wonderful family home. Other additions over the summer have included new bathrooms, together with putting in a downstairs shower, new heating and hot water cylinder, improved electrics, oak doors, a garage conversion, a wonderful glass balustrade to the stairs, new flooring and full redecoration. In short, someone with an eye for fulfilling a property's maximum potential has gone through this place and done a very fine job.

The kitchen is beautifully fitted with contemporary stone-coloured fronted units, with chunky worktops forming a handy breakfast bar. There's an integrated double oven and hob, eye-level microwave, fridge and dishwasher, as well as ceramic sink unit, where you can appreciate distant coastal views over Thorness Bay to take your mind off the washing up.

Next to the kitchen is a study or play room, which could easily be used as a fourth bedroom or guest room as it would benefit from the newly installed ground floor shower room.

There is a useful utility area and a separate snug, which was formerly part of the garage (which could be re-instated). Currently this room provides an ideal den for the kids or movie room.

Upstairs, the light landing area has enough room to create a home office, or add shelving. There are three beautifully decorated bedrooms — all with spectacular views — and a huge family bathroom, incorporating a walk-in shower with deluge fitting and spray attachment.

Tu-Jays has parking for up to five cars.
