The first floor landing opens into a very useful study area which would accommodate a small futon for the occasional guest. The bedroom is particularly spacious and has good fitted wardrobes. The contemporary shower room is a good size and is very smart. The property has good quality carpets and flooring throughout. The kitchen/dining room is fitted with hard wood work tops and a porcelain sink. There are base level cabinets and matching wall units.

It is ideally located for the attractions of the coast and the convenient local amenities (described below). The property would also provide a delightful full time home and deserves an early internal inspection.
