A cloakroom services this area and there is also a very useful walk-in pantry planned off the kitchen area. A feature bridge walkway crosses the double height, fully glazed entrance hallway, leading across to the fabulous master suite complete with dressing room and en-suite. In a similar fashion to the main open plan living area, this bedroom makes the most of the wonderful outlook to the sea and countryside and fully glazed sliding doors lead onto a large balcony.
The remaining 4 en-suite bedrooms positioned on the ground floor, open onto the west facing terrace which surrounds the pool. The central hallway also offers access to this terrace and pool, where steps lead down onto the front garden area.
To this floor are located the home/office and the all important wetsuit drying area with shower for washing down after days in the surf and on the sand! A utility room, boiler room and double garage complete this impressive build.
