DESCRIPTION
Woodpeckers is an enchanting 1930's house built by Charliers, a local building company held in high regard who are still in existence today. Approached via a sloping driveway which provides parking for at least two vehicles and access to the detached garage, the property occupies a generous level plot and is surrounded by its beautifully secluded gardens to three sides.

The current owners have retained and enhanced as much of the original elements of the property as possible which exudes charm and character throughout both the attractively appointed interior and exterior. The well proportioned accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule, a wide and welcoming hallway with polished floorboards which extend throughout the ground and first floors, a comfortable sitting room with cosy fire and French doors opening to the garden, a dining room leading to the study with vaulted ceiling, kitchen/breakfast room also opening to the garden, utility area and cloakroom. On the first floor the wide galleried landing leads to three double bedrooms, the master with distant sea views, a bathroom and separate w.c.

The very private gardens are a delight. They have been lovingly planted over time for year round interest. They incorporate a lovely terrace and a large outbuilding which has been divided to create a garden room and separate studio, either would be most comfortable as a home office.

For room sizes refer to the floor plan.
