Stunning Semi-Detached 2/3 Bedroom Ground Floor Apartment/Bungalow with Impressive Panoramic Sea Views over the Picturesque Village of Beer.
The Property: Pine Lodge forms a wing of a former Victorian House which was converted into 4 apartments in the main building, with Pine Lodge being the fifth separate property with its own private entrance, courtyard and roof terrace. The property enjoys stunning views over the picturesque village of Beer to the sea and is within walking distance of the amenities and beach. The property has been in the same ownership for approximately 5 years and prior to that was fully renovated in 2011. The current vendors have obtained planning permission for the construction of a new first floor extension over the existing flat roof area to provide an additional bedroom and bathroom. The current permission would look to mirror the existing building being sympathetic to the Victorian style. Plans are available for inspection via our offices. Please enquire for further details. This construction would, if finished, create a very impressive addition to what is already a delightful residence. The views in particular, which would be enjoyed from the first-floor bedroom and balcony would be outstanding. Plans are also in place to alter the ground floor layout to incorporate a new level entrance and alteration to enlarge a current bedroom to further improve the property. Currently the entrance is at the rear of the property with a door opening to a rear porchway and steps down to the kitchen. A separate door from here also gives access to bedroom occasional 3 with a rooflight.
The kitchen is comprehensively fitted with a matching range of wooden base and wall units with granite worktops and upstands, with electric hob and electric oven beneath, under mounted sink, and integrated fridge/freezer, slimline dishwasher, tiled floors and walls. An open arch from the kitchen leads to the dining hall which has ample space for table and chairs with two rooflights, large cupboard. A door leads off to the master double bedroom which has an en-suite which is fully tiled with WC, large walk-in shower and modern sink/vanity unit. Beyond this is a separate fully tiled bathroom with white suite with a ‘P’ shaped bath with shower over, WC and pedestal wash basin and tiled floor. Bedroom 2 is a double bedroom and beyond this is a large walk-in cupboard, which houses the gas central heating boiler with a wash hand basin and space and plumbing for a washing machine. At the front of the property is a very sizeable living/dining room with two large picture windows which take full advantage of the lovely sea views. The property has the benefit of full gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazing. This delightful property could easily be lived in as is, or further improved with the extension as planned depending on the needs of any potential purchaser and must be viewed to fully appreciate the spectacular views enjoyed from both inside and outside the property.
Outside: A private pedestrian gate to the side of Pine Lodge gives access to a private side patio area with storage with fencing surrounding. Low level steps rise from here to the front door with attractive raised flower and shrub beds with stone walling above surrounding. A further set of steps rise to a large roof terrace which has decorative stone walling surrounding. The views from here are very impressive with far reaching views over the valley to the sea and surrounding countryside in the distance. A communal garden is located at the rear of the building and is a large, raised lawn area with a paved seating area at the uppermost corner.
