DESCRIPTION
Kingfisher House was designed as a family home, with the potential to live and work by the sea, in a truly stunning coastal location. The open plan kitchen/living room/dining area provides the hub of the home, forming a sociable and practical space at the heart of the property. A Smeg range cooker with a six ring gas hob, hot plate and two electric ovens provides cooking facilities, and the central island has two sinks and drainers, an integrated dishwasher and an abundance of storage space with a range of fitted unit space. The Spanish slate flooring continues in to the dining area, where French doors open out to the patio.
The living room is a cosy space, with a multi-fuel stove set in to the first of two eye-catching red brick fireplaces, and a door opens through to the study, and one of three staircases leads to bedrooms on the first floor. The sitting room is a more formal place to relax, with a second multi fuel stove and red brick fire place, creating a striking feature within the room. The room connects with the grounds through French doors opening to the garden whilst also benefitting from a flood of natural light. Double doors open through to a grand entrance hall, with double doors front and back, and a mezzanine walkway above. A utility room and laundry/drying room complete the ground floor rooms, with a stair case leading from the utility room to the studio/home office on the first floor, which is currently utilised as a hair dressing salon. This bright and spacious room with a vaulted ceiling is extremely flexible, and it opens out on to a balcony from which you can enjoy the sunsets and sea views.
The master bedroom on the first floor has a dressing room and en-suite bathroom, with a Jacuzzi bath and circular shower/steam cabinet, with both a central rainfall head and side jets. In addition the master bedroom has French doors opening out on to a balcony, where there is space to sit and enjoy the last of the evening light. The remaining three bedrooms each have a Juliet balcony, Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a bathroom, and bedroom 4 has an en-suite shower room.
Kingfisher House has been finished to a very high standard throughout, and has been a much loved family home for a number of years. The property sits under a slate roof, has oil fired central heating powered by a Worcester Danesmoor 26/32 boiler, with temperature controls for each zone (ground/first floor). A covered parking area is situated next to the garage and a workshop/shed is situated adjacent to the property.

No one overlooks Kingfisher House, it offers privacy, direct access to the beach, a few acres of land and the potential to work from home or run a small business from home, it really has something for everyone.
