DESCRIPTION
Balcary House is a charming, yet unique, single storey property. Every window benefits from a stunning view, either across the bay or towards the mature garden grounds. The spacious dining/living room provides a fantastic entertaining space with sliding doors to the patio helping to bring the outside in. The bright kitchen is complimented by having space for dining and living, and the four double bedrooms and single bedroom/office provides accommodation suitable for family life and hosting guests. The heated swimming pool is an excellent addition to the property and offers a space to relax and unwind whilst taking in the views. The adjoining garage provides parking for two cars and could also be used as a boat shed.

The 1970s built bungalow is rendered, under a slate roof and benefits from double glazing throughout. Balcary House has a pressurised heating system which is run from the conventional oil boiler.

GARDEN (AND GROUNDS)
Balcary House sits within large garden grounds predominately laid to lawn with a variety of mature shrubs and trees. A patio wraps around the house and provides a smart space for outdoor entertaining whilst enjoying the stunning coastal views. The gravel driveway surrounding the property has ample parking for a number of cars. Immediately adjacent to the property is an area of established woodland. A small stream runs along the boundary of the garden and creates a tranquil atmosphere. The beach in front of the property is accessed directly from the garden with the ability to launch a boat, making this an ideal holiday home or place for a relaxing lifestyle.
