6 Bedroom House For Sale

This historic Grade II listed property is a three storey townhouse originally built for the town's wheat Merchant, who, it was rumoured, was a smuggler. The property boasts a wealth of original features such as fireplaces, Venetian and Sash windows which flood the property with natural light. At the top of the property, the two bedrooms and a spy window enjoy panoramic views over the Harbour and coastline, from which the merchant watched his boats come in. The property is minutes from both the quay and main shopping area and a short distance to the coastal path.

The Normans is beautifully presented throughout and the accommodation briefly comprises; entrance hall with tiled floor and open winding staircase, stunning vaulted modernised kitchen, three principal reception rooms, two with open fires, one currently housing a full size snooker table, providing an amazing space to retire to after dinner. The ground floor accommodation continues with a bedroom and adjacent shower room with french doors opening on to the walled rear garden, a study/bedroom six with en-suite bathroom and utility room.

To the first and second floors are four double bedrooms all with en-suites and double aspect with views to the sea and over the enclosed walled garden and front of the property.

Accessed via an external staircase to the rear of the courtyard garden is a substantial cellar (5.79m x 4.57m) which has been completely restored with terracotta tiled floor, a vaulted ceiling, power and lighting.

Outside there is ample off road parking with allocated parking for six vehicles and a garage, the enclosed rear walled garden is incredibly private and makes a fantastic space to relax with patio area perfect for dining outside.

The Normans is not only an outstanding home but it is also currently an extremely popular holiday let, no doubt due to the its location, generous level of accommodation and beautiful interiors. The property lets for an average of £574 per night and as much as £6000 per week high season, making it a wise investment for those who may wish to purchase as a second home with the view of holiday letting.
