why you’ll like it
Designed around the glorious sea views and access to the south garden, this luxury home is set back and down from an exclusive, quiet street behind landscaped gardens with a granite pathway where l.e.d lights set into it guide you home.
Inside, a glass atrium stretches up a full three storeys, oak is underfoot and a rich walnut staircase with a frameless glass balustrade rises above you. Skilled attention to detail extends to the Tom Dixon light fittings and broad walnut doors with designer Tupai handles. Built conforming to the strict ‘lifetime home’ standard, a discreet practicality runs through the design with zoned underfloor heating and tucked away is the secure door to the garage, a large cupboard for coats and a chic guest cloakroom.
the kitchen diner and utility
Sunshine streams through the south wall which is predominantly glass, the energy efficient Hybrid Raynaers doors bringing the glorious vista in and sliding open to a porcelain lined sun terrace ideal for al fresco entertaining and admiring the sea. Inside, there’s ample space to relax and to dine, so it’s a room to enjoy both with family and friends. Behind you, a Zakuna slate wall shimmers in the sun and Lutron ambient lighting ensures the room is always inviting. To your left, safely tucked away from the main flow to the garden, the Scavolini Italian kitchen is carefully tucked away from the main flow to the garden behind a sociable central island which doubles as a breakfast bar. There’s plenty of storage and the working surfaces are smooth quartz. The Siemens 5 touch induction hob’s integrated beneath a Falmec extractor and at eye level four ovens offer fan, steam, combi and microwave options. All integrated appliances, which includes a tall fridge, are high spec and there’s a Quooker tap above the Franke steel sink. As you would expect, there’s a separate utility room next door with an integrated tall freezer and plumbing in place for machines.
the family room and study
Quiet and bright, the family room at the front of the house has views over the front garden and a deep cupboard to ensure the space remains clutter free.
The private study at the back of the house is light and full of mesmerising sea views. This room also opens to the sun terrace, and with a chic en suite shower room it could also be a sixth bedroom for visitors or an au pair as there’s also a side door.
four double first floor bedrooms, en suite bathroom and shower room, first floor balcony
This floor flows exceptionally well, with central Jack and Jill en suite bathrooms linking the front and back bedrooms. On the right side of the house, you can bathe beneath the stars in a fabulous contemporary bath or enjoy the luxury of the spacious walk in shower which has a rainfall head. There’s storage beneath the hand basin and a heated rail for towels. To the left of the building, the en suite shower room is light and airy, decorated in designer tiles, also with storage under the hand basin and with a skylight- which makes it very private.
The two front bedrooms are large and partly vaulted, and both are ready to move into. At the back of the house, the third double room has spectacular views over the Marina and access to the glamorous first floor terrace. Next door, the fourth bedroom also leads to the balcony and has sweeping views across the harbour to the open sea, and there’s the benefit of a dressing room with views and a door to the terrace.
the master suite – second floor
Accessed via the sculptural staircase, the vaulted master bedroom has a wall of glass to the apex of the roof which fills the room with ever changing views. The private south facing balcony looks over the garden to the English Channel whilst the glass balustrade ensures that direct sea views are enjoyed even from bed. Sunsets can be appreciated from the fabulous baignoir which sits within the room beneath a refreshing waterfall tap. Hidden from sight, a dressing area has the space for all the storage you could dream of and by it, a large walk in en suite’s lined in marble and has a shower with a rainfall head. The Swiss twin hand basins also provide chic storage, and there’s twin heated rails for towels.
Private and with lighting, you could be on holiday in the white rendered sun terrace which runs along the whole of the back of the house where raised beds are stocked with palms, and paved with porcelain, it becomes an extension of the living space during summer. Broad steps lead to a child and pet friendly lawn bordered by mature shrubs and trees, and there’s a hidden play area scented by an orchard.
bear in mind
Making the most of its cliff top position and private plot – there are no houses between it and the sea- this luxurious house is ideal for entertaining but it’s also a quiet, welcoming and practical home.
