You enter the property through the vestibule with tiled floor and a small window to the front. A glass panel door leads into the hallway which in turn gives access to the lounge, wet room, dining room and staircase to the upper floor. A large cupboard under the stairs and another which would have been the original front door provide storage and a window to the front allows lots of light. The hallway, lounge, dining room, staircase, landing and 2 of the bedrooms are fitted with carpet while the kitchen and wet room have vinyl flooring. Bedrooms 1, 2 and 5 have bare floorboards.

The spacious lounge has a large bay window to the front with window seat making the most of the fantastic sea views, and another window to the rear. An imposing working fireplace and original features including the maid’s bell and picture rail make this a lovely room, ideal for entertaining.

The recently installed wet room is fitted with a white WC and wash hand basin. The shower area is fitted with an electric shower. 2 windows to the rear provide light and ventilation.

At the end of hallway is the dining room. This room houses an oil burning Aga and has a window to the front, built in cupboard and an exposed beam ceiling. A door leads off to bedroom 5/study which also has a exposed beam ceiling and has a window to the rear. A 2nd door from the dining room leads into the kitchen. The kitchen is basic and in need of modernisation. It has a window to the rear and a door giving access to the rear garden area. These 3 rooms provide potential for a more modern layout.
