Attractive double fronted substantial family home with parking situated a very short distance from the seafront and beach. Currently running as a successful B & B.
The Property: Beachcroft is a double fronted detached, substantial 1930's house situated in Burrow Road - a small no through road which leads up to the seafront and beach. The town centre, shops and facilities are also just a short walk away.
The property has been run by the current vendors as a successful bed and breakfast for the last seven years. The property could equally be purchased as a family home with very little alteration required.
The property has recently been externally decorated along with the roof tiles having been cleaned and restored. Externally the gardens are all laid out for ease of maintenance having been landscaped recently.
An external porch with front door with attractive stained glass panel opens to the entrance hall with central stairs rising. On the left, a door opens to what is currently the dining room for guests and a sliding door opens up to a breakfast room where the floor mounted gas central heating boiler can be found. A large arch opens up to the kitchen and a door opens to an inner hallway with door to deep understairs cupboard and beyond to the sitting room. The kitchen is fitted with a matching range of base and wall units with large range style cooker, 1.5 bowl sink, space and plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher and has a large window overlooking the rear garden. A door gives access to the rear garden and an inner door opens to a shower room/WC. The sitting room is a large double aspect room with bay window to front and large arch opening to a slightly narrowed garden room area with sliding patio doors to the rear garden.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, two with en-suite shower rooms and one with a larger en-suite bathroom. A separate door opens to the stairs to the second floor. Bedroom 4 is a good sized double room which has a velux window to the rear with views towards Hawksdown Hill and two windows to the side both with views towards the sea and there are two fitted wardrobes. Bedroom 5 is also a double bedroom with velux window to the rear with the same views and a window to the side. There is a separate WC with expelair extractor fan to serve these two bedrooms.
Outside: A central resin bound pathway leads to the front porch with two gravelled areas either side. In front of the property there is space for 2/3 cars and a driveway leads down one side of the property to the front of the detached garage.
The rear garden has been landscaped with ease of maintenance in mind. There is a paved patio area along with a resin bound garden area and an attractive astro turf garden with pergola over. New double gates open to the driveway to the garage. A detached building is situated at the rear of the garden and is currently used as a utility/storage room but could equally be used as a home office/art studio or gym. Next to this is a large detached garage and workshop with workshop to rear and garage to the front with double opening wooden doors.
