This very well presented and substantial detached property has versatile accommodation laid out over two floors and has superb sea and coastal views, views of Nare Head and Gull Rock.

The property currently forms a large three bedroom detached bungalow with a substantial lower ground floor two bedroom self contained apartment, both with their own gardens and driveways.

The bungalow would make a nice permanent home with the annexe/apartment being ideal for a second family member or to rent out to provide an income.

Both properties could be used as holiday homes as currently are, again providing great income potential or could be ideal for two families looking to buy a holiday home together.

When the property was originally built, it was built and designed with a stairwell in place, and subject to a new owner inserting a staircase, the property could then be used as one large detached two storey house if required.

The current owner has updated the three bath/shower rooms, updated both kitchens and had replacement UPVC double glazing fitted.

The property is within a short walk of the beach, shops, doctors surgery and village facilities.

The accommodation comprises:

The Bungalow:

Hallway with door in place to the interconnecting stairwell (subject to inserting a staircase), large lounge with open fire and superb sea and coastal views, dining room with similar sea and coastal views, kitchen with sea views, three double/twin bedrooms, family bathroom and a further shower room. Garden with sea views, driveway and garage.

The Apartment/Annexe

Lounge/dining room, inner hallway with access to the store room/stairwell (subject to inserting a staircase), kitchen, double bedroom, twin bedroom and family bathroom. Garden, driveway and sail loft style store.

The village of Portscatho offers a range of shops and facilities including a village shop with post office and off licence, butchers, art galleries. The Boathouse restaurant serving impressive food, sea views with inside or outside dining.

There is also the waterside Tatams Coffee Hut with its outside sitting area, Tatams Taverna with wood fired oven, inside dining, sea views and also offering takeaway's. Within walking distance is the renowned Hidden Hut that is perched just above Porthcurnick Beach, with either takeaway or outside dining available, with the superb vista across Porthcurnick Beach and out to sea.
