Occupying a prestigious corner plot, the exterior handsome grandeur of this substantial home will likely steal your heart from the moment you step upon the pretty tiled front pathway. Stepping inside, the vast interior pours in front of you, sumptuous deep Farrow and Ball tones highlighting the Edwardian details and complimenting the contemporary design flourishes. The sitting room, a warm and comfortable room, bursting with natural light which floods through the large box bay window contrasting beautifully against the plush Stiffkey Blue décor which highlights the crisp white grand cornicing and original period panelled door. leading down the spacious hallway, the striking bold interior will continue to entice you further battling against the temptation to momentarily pause to just take in the the awe-inspiring features that are bursting with character at every turn. The family room is up next, a wonderfully versatile space which could be used for a variety of purposes, whether you need an additional sitting room, study or even a more formal dining area. This room is again full of natural light from the side aspect box bay window but also features double doors leading out to the garden, allowing a beautiful indoor/outdoor flow for the warmer months. Now for the kitchen, dining room… draped in rich colour, this room is another treasure trove of contemporary boldness against magnificent character. Whilst the quirky archway allows a degree of separation between the kitchen to the dining area, this room is very much the open plan kitchen space we are searching for, versatile and spacious with room for all the family. Fitted with a range of deep blue cabinets, the slick walnut handles are another fashionable feature thoughtfully chosen to compliment the stylish granite work surfaces and traditional butler style sink. The creative owners have spent years carefully crafting each room whilst sympathetically respecting the historical past of this glorious home which is evidenced throughout, such as exposing some of the historical brickwork here in the kitchen and to add some ingenious quirk, the original kitchen door has been artfully upcycled as the dining table. Now often classed as an essential feature in addition to the ground floor cloakroom which leads from the hallway, the utility room leads from the kitchen and then onto the back garden.

Rising to the first floor, the space continues to spread before you as does the sumptuous deep décor. Three double bedrooms can be found on this floor, all incredibly unique and exceptionally spacious. The bedroom to the rear has been re-modelled to benefit from an en-suite shower room whilst an additional room to the front has been designed as a comfortable home office. The chic family bathroom suite features a large corner shower unit and has been thoughtfully finished with a ‘spa like’ finish, ideal tones to enjoy whilst relaxing in the deep tub. Rising further to the second floor, two more double bedrooms lead from yet another spacious landing with an additional snug area to the front. Elevated sea views are glimpsed through from the front bedroom, a serene reminder of the beautiful coastal location and perhaps a nod to the aptly named house, ‘Seafield’.

Franks Thoughts...

An absolute privilege to list such an eclectic home, boldly taking interior design to where we don’t often see and completely nailing it. So much space, yet such versatility within it. A home I will be sad to see sell, as I would love it myself!
