A unique penthouse style two storey home with lift and parking on the Sea Front.

With its attractive architecture, is this extensive 4,228 sq ft home over two floors with the addition of a cellar, all presented in good order having just had the exterior redone.

The accommodation sprawls across the first and second floors, providing generous, light-filled rooms of some elegance and making the most of the sea views; accessed by either a private lift or staircase from the private front door off the communal hallway on the ground floor. The two substantial south-west facing reception rooms with beautiful bay windows and access to the veranda style balconies are a real feature of this fine home, and are coupled with three further useful rooms, the kitchen/breakfast room with utility and a cloakroom; all of which flow from a central hallway.

With both lift and stair access, the top floor comprises five bedrooms, two with en suites and a family bathroom; one of the bedrooms is currently utilised as a dressing room. From this floor, is the ideal spot to watch the boats at sea, with the road below hidden from this height, and from here is access to the rear roof terrace. An extensive cellar space is accessed from separate stairs and lobby and offers great storage and also allows access to an outside courtyard with a path to the rear.

The property has its own private lift and staircase, which is accessed through its private front door off the communal entrance hall. Once in your private area, you also have stairs down to an extensive cellar ideal for storage.
