A rare opportunity to own a beautiful, seaside cottage with lots of style, character and space. Spectacular sea views are guaranteed throughout the year, along with easy access to sandy beaches and coastal walks. Located in the heart of the village of Allonby, the property is set back from the road by the village green, with access to the property and parking via a private road. A small, walled front garden is the only outside space, but the spectacular local environment on the doorstep more than makes up for this.
The heart of this home is the large, open-plan living space that combines a lounge, dining and kitchen area - perfect for both relaxing and entertaining. The current owner modernised the property approximately eight years ago with new windows, new stairs and a stylish makeover to make the best of this lovely home. A stunning wooden floor and exposed ceiling timbers enhance this gorgeous space. The lounge area has a feature gas fire, perfect for cosy nights in, which complements the modern, gas central heating system. The kitchen is fitted with cottage-style wall units that are in keeping with the style of the property. A Smeg oven and five burner hob offer a high quality cooking experience, although the sea view might distract you!
An extension to the rear houses the sun room with picture windows offering views of the adjoining countryside and sunrises from the East. Neighbours include well-behaved cows and chickens. An essential downstairs loo and spacious utility room offer added practicality. The original garage has been converted into a craft room, complete with full height patio doors that offer even more views of the sea and the spectacular Solway sunsets. This space offers flexibility of use as an office or play room, or could be upgraded to provide additional living space. A fully boarded loft area, complete with Velux window, offers lots of storage.
Upstairs, the main bedroom is light and spacious, with a large built-in wardrobe and plenty of room for other furniture - and we probably need to mention the amazing sea views ..... A second double and family bathroom with double shower cubicle, complete the first floor accommodation. The second floor has been converted to provide a very large bedroom/living area, complete with two Velux windows providing lots of natural light.. Perfect as a bedroom for older children, guests, home office or hobby room.
In summary, a gorgeous seaside cottage in a great location that offers space and flexibility throughout. This property would work equally well as a main home or holiday property. Beautifully presented by the current owner, it is both great to look at and practical to live in. Early viewing is highly recommended.
