Bramhall, built in 1982, was designed by a chartered surveyor to make the most of the stunning sea views. All front facing windows are expansive. The Sitting Room window is floor to ceiling, stretching almost the entire length of the room, with a double glazed glass door opening out onto the patio, ideal for barbeques in the summer. Bramhall has the potential to become a stylish and modern home, a new kitchen would update the property and the store could be converted to a utility room. The Master Bedroom has a wash hand basin with hot and cold water, and space to convert the room to an en-suite room, with the appropriate planning consents. The Cellar is the full length of the house and has both electricity and cold running water. The cellar ceiling height gradually reduces from 2m down to 1.6m, it is currently used as a workshop but could be transformed into a gym or offices, subject to obtaining all necessary consents, or simply provide useful storage space. Bramhall is within walking distance of the local primary school, shops and harbour; steps leading down into the village from East Cliff provide a short cut to the sea front. Bramhall sits under a tiled roof, is heated by night storage heaters and is double glazed throughout. This property would make a wonderful family home, or holiday home for those who would like to escape to a village by the sea.
