Imposing 4/6 bedroom village house with outstanding living spaces, a short walk to the beach and the shops.

Firlands House is believed to have been built in 1831 and has attractive rendered elevations under a slate roof. This house is all about space and position. The house has a series of outstanding living spaces with unusually high ceilings and large windows further enhancing the feeling of space throughout, complemented by sleeping accommodation that is infinitely flexible set over two floors above. In terms of position the property lies within walking distance of The World Heritage Jurassic coastline and a number of useful everyday shops and amenities.

To the front of the house there is a good-sized entrance hall which gives way to what can only be described as an outsized living room. To one end there is a sitting area arranged around an open fireplace, while to the other there is a formal dining area with the whole space laid to engineered Oak flooring. Beyond the living room is a similarly spacious kitchen, with an attractive lantern light above, that has a comprehensive range of floor and wall mounted units and cupboards to the sides and space for a large farmhouse style dining table to its centre. Integrated appliances include an induction hob, a microwave and an electric oven and there is a useful pantry to one corner of the room. The floor is laid to a plank floor. To the end of the kitchen there is a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble dryer with, to one end, a cloakroom. Over the two floors above there are 4/6 bedrooms depending on how you wish to use them with the principal bedroom having a bay window to the front and an en suite bathroom behind equipped with a ball and claw bath and a standalone shower. On the same floor there are three further bedrooms, a WC and a bathroom, while on the second floor there are two bedrooms, a shower room and a kitchenette. Off the second floor there is an attractive roof terrace that takes in the views out towards the Marshwood Vale while the second floor setup lends itself to being a bed-and-breakfast business should it be required. The property is in good decorative order throughout, has gas fired central heating and double glazing.
