This charming property was originally built by The Rev. H G Watkins in 1891 and has now been completely renovated by the current owner to a brilliant standard with a luxury specification. Throughout the property the quality of workmanship and attention to detail is unrivalled and has brought this original house back to life with a contemporary 2020 finish.
Internally the property boasts a whole host of character features including stunning wood panelling, large fireplace, window seats and more which have all been beautifully restored, really giving the feeling of grandeur and quality. These timeless features are complimented with carefully chosen natural materials, a sympathetic yet modern elegant design.
The house is configured in an upside-down living arrangement to make the most of the breath-taking view from the main, principal rooms. Each room is very well proportioned to give the feeling of great space throughout and the large windows allow the property to be flooded with natural light.
Outside there is a good sized level rear garden and an extensive raised patio which is ideal for al fresco dining. There is also access to the large balcony upstairs via a classical spiral stair case as this is where the water views are at their finest.
