PROPERTYSUMMARY With the seafront on your doorstep, panoramic views, wide open spaces and nothing to interrupt your outlook other than the rolling waves, this is a home that makes for 'happy families'. No matter what stresses there may be, they probably feel less important here than in a noisy suburb! Many parents are more relaxed when their children are happy and have plenty to do. With the beach literally on your doorstep, they can be outdoors getting lots of fresh air and exercise and, what's more, enjoying it whilst they do.
The current owners bought this as a holiday home and set about a modernisation project which included; re-building the sun room, refitting all the bathrooms and the kitchen and re-decorating throughout to their own taste. A new boundary wall, with open railings on top now allow lovely views over the beachfront from the house. There's approximately 2,675 sq ft of accommodation, offering a large open plan sitting room leading through to the sun room with lovely beachfront views. The kitchen/dining/family area is also an open plan space which is conducive to modern-day living. There's a ground floor shower room next to the study, which could be a bedroom if desired. Upstairs the master bedroom is very spacious and has an ensuite bathroom. Another four double bedrooms and a large bathroom with walk-in shower make this an ideal family home.
Hayling Isand itself has most of the required everyday amenities and education establishments. For recreation there's plenty to choose from; sailing clubs, nature reserve, award winning surfing facilities and recreation grounds and blue-flag beaches.
