An exceptionally well appointed and individually designed 'Wow House' set in a charming rural location with stunning coast and country views. Built without compromise, this low maintenance, energy efficient home offers ample flexibility and with scope for annex/ letting unit (subject to consent).

The main house is constructed from a timber frame and clad with natural stone and slate roof. Hardwood double glazing complements this design with large feature openings, glazed gable windows and bi-fold doors. Internally the house offers the following accommodation: Entrance porch, inner hall, double height vaulted sitting room with modern wood burner, contemporary kitchen, utility room, WC, three bedrooms with the master being vaulted and enjoying stunning views with an impressive en-suite bathroom, a mezzanine (that can easily be used as a guest bedroom) and a luxury main bathroom.

Outside, there is a larger than average detached double garage with studio space over. The studio has separate access to the side, a kitchenette, WC (room for a shower) and a large studio room/office/store over the garage. This building lends itself (subject to planning) for conversion to an independent annex of holiday let.

Both the house and garage benefit from underfloor heating throughout, the main house is heated with a Ground Source Heat Pump and the Studio via an Air Source Heat Pump. There is also a 4kw pv solar panel system generating a Feed-In Tariff.

Homes of this calibre are rarely available and an internal viewing is highly recommended to really appreciate what this home has to offer.
