Tamarisk is an exceptional house set in a prime beachfront location with glorious sea views across the Solent to the Isle of Wight. Renovated to a high standard by the current owners, particular features of note include the wonderful open-plan living space with balcony overlooking the sea, the landscaped gardens that give both access to and privacy from the beachfront and the double garage with loft room and versatile accommodation set over two floors. Set on one of the most sought-after roads in Bracklesham Bay, this rare opportunity is ideal for anyone looking for a holiday home, permanent beachfront home or a property that offers the prospect for a Bed & Breakfast business.
On entering the house, a porch leads through to the hallway. The majority of the bedroom accommodation is situated on the ground floor whilst the living space on the first floor has the benefit of wonderful sea views. On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom and the other with an en-suite shower room. In addition to these, there is a further bedroom suite comprising two rooms and a bathroom. A bright garden room provides direct access to the rear gardens via bi-fold doors. This room has a small kitchenette in one corner, making it accessible for use from the beach and gardens. The ground floor also features a study and good sized utility room with storage.
To the first floor, the open-plan living space epitomises the quality of the house, making excellent use of the light and superb views that the beachfront location enjoys. The dining space and quality kitchen flow through into the sitting area without any visual barriers to the glass wall created by the six-part bi-fold doors that lead to the balcony. When these doors are fully opened, the balcony and sitting room amalgamate into one space which exhibits the spectacular views. The balcony is enclosed with a stainless steel balustrade with glass panels, allowing for minimal interruption of the sea views and a staircase from the side of the balcony leads down to the rear gardens. A nook to the open-plan space creates a small study area and a well-planned area to the rear of the kitchen provides generous storage and shelving space. In addition, on this first floor there are two further bedrooms, one of which offers generous wardrobe space and the other features an en-suite shower room. There is also a family bathroom.
Tamarisk is finished to a high standard with attention to detail taken in to account at all times, from the internal and external lighting system and kitchen fittings, down to the flooring and garden landscaping.
Tamarisk is approached via a stone paved drive and gravelled parking area, leading to a detached double garage. Internal stairs to the double garage lead up to a loft room, which would make an ideal hobbies or games room. Planning permission was granted in 2013 for a conversion of the double garage into a studio/workshop/single garage (Planning Ref: 13/01939/DOM).
The front gardens to the house are attractively presented with an area of lawn edged by flower beds stocked with a range of bedding plants and small shrubs. The stone paving continues along the side of the garage to an open courtyard area that leads to the front door, with side access to the rear gardens along both sides of the house.
The rear gardens have been landscaped providing privacy from the beachfront while still retaining an open coastal feel. Predominantly laid to lawn, sculpted side beds draw the eye to a most appealing decked area which is set in front of the raised beds which are planted with subtropical plants, giving shelter from the beachfront beyond. This area creates a well-screened seating area with direct access to the beach via a timber gate. Beyond the gate is an area of shingle enclosed by a low-level post and rail fence with access gate that separates this privately owned area from the beach.
