Every now and then you get a seller who has such an eye for detail that that you know they will have produced an amazing house.  This is one of them!  The cottage blends gorgeous period character and stunning modern facilities.  This is the first time I have seen a sedum roof on a property of this type too, the seller having lovingly propagated it!  We are all absolutely smitten with this one and want to find the perfect new owner – is that you?

Full description

This handsome period cottage has been lovingly and sympathetically modernised and extended by the current owner to a very high specification. The home features beautifully bright, sociable living spaces and bedrooms filled with charm and character. The cosy lounge is set at the front of the house, and this leads through into the dining room which has a wide opening into the superb kitchen extension which even has a stylish living sedum roof. This fabulous area is fitted with a range of smart matte cream units with lots of integrated appliances and underfloor heating. On the first floor, the well proportioned master bedroom sits at the front with a good open view down Albert Street and on to the Solent. To the rear, the bathroom is fitted with a fresh white suite including double ended bath and has a cleverly designed anti-mist mirror concealing a cupboard housing the gas fired boiler. A pretty period door conceals steep stairs up to a beautiful loft bedroom where another great Solent view can be enjoyed through the carefully renovated sash window. The sunny walled garden has been thoughtfully and decadently landscaped to create split level areas of wide Indian sandstone paved terraces illuminated by a Victorian style lamp post. It also has useful gated side access.
