As soon as we viewed the house, we were drawn to the living room windows and as we were stood there gazing at the sea views, we just knew we had to buy! Since we moved in, we have never taken the views for granted, the sunrises are spectacular and full moons light up the sea. We’ve enjoyed and have really been spoilt being able to spot pods of dolphins from our bed, and peregrine falcons diving over the cliffs.
We have found Woodland Avenue to be the friendliest we have ever experienced with welcoming neighbours and a strong community spirit, it has been lovely. You really feel in touch with nature here, not just at the house but in the immediate area too. There is a private footpath (reserved for Woodland Avenue residents) that winds its way down through the woodland to the railway line where there is a secure gate allowing access over the line and on to the sea wall. You can also take a more leisurely walk through Cliff Walk and Mules Park which takes you down towards the town via the promenade.
The property itself dates back to 1929, has an art deco feel to it and is arranged over three floors, our friends love staying in the garden bedroom when they come to stay. We love the fact that when we have a house full, everyone has their own space. We particularly love our bedroom - the view is really special - we’re always taking photos of the sunrise over the sea!
We have loved living here, but it is time for us to move on to our next adventure. It is a great home, that still has lots of potential. We’ll be sad to go, but we’re sure the new owner will love it as much as we have done.
The front door opens into the entrance hall, which has a door to the cloakroom, stairs to the first floor and under stairs storage. You’ll naturally be drawn through the hall and into the spacious living room, straight to the box window to admire the commanding views over the gardens and out to sea. The living room bright thanks to the south easterly orientation and a further window to the side. There is also a modern wood burner (low emission eco multi fuel) installed on a slate hearth which is perfect for letting heat go through the house – ideal when you think about today’s energy prices!
Off the hall there is access into the dining room which has space for a good size table thanks to the front aspect bay window. A cleverly placed window on the living room wall, allows plenty of light and glimpses of the sea too. On from the dining room is the kitchen, with modern units, polished granite worktop, Neff gas hob, Neff double oven and Neff integrated dishwasher. There are French doors which open onto a balcony, which is perfect for morning coffee, as well as a side door to give access to the front and rear gardens.
On the first floor there are two bedrooms at the back of the house, one a double and one a single, where you could spend hours just gazing out to sea. The second double bedroom is to the front aspect and has a lovely feature fireplace. A luxury shower room with multi-jet shower and Carrera marble tiling, completes this floor.
Lower Ground Floor.
Accessed from the garden, there is a conservatory which leads into the self-contained flat. The main room has space for a double bed, and has a door on one side to a shower room and on the other side there is a door to (what could potentially be a kitchen) the utility room, which also houses the gas central heating boiler for the house. To the back of the utility room there is access to the under-house store, a large dry space consisting of four areas, perfect for storage.
There is plenty of potential with the lower ground floor. Had the current owners stayed, they would have investigated taking away the conservatory and building a garden room in its place, which could have also provided a wonderful terrace off the living room.
The rear garden is accessed from the kitchen or from the path that leads from the front of the house. The garden is a great size and gently slopes away from the house, following a paved pathway through the lawn. There is mature hedging to the boundaries and towards the bottom of the garden there is a paved and gravel area with plenty of space of outdoor furniture, the garden has cherry, apple, plum and pear trees along with wisteria and old English scented roses, as well as a pond and greenhouse.
