This handsome five-bedroom detached house occupies a prime position in the sought-after village of Berrow and is within an easy level walk of the long beach and the countryside.

The attractive red-brick property has been subject to several quality enhancements recently including the refurbishment of the bathrooms, a garage conversion into a studio/annexe and extensive energy efficiency measures such as floor and wall insulation and the installation of solar panels. The house has an Energy Performance Rating of grade 'B' which is very unusual for a property of this age.

Inside, the house is presented in excellent decorative order throughout with quality fixtures and fine finishes. The spacious living room has a bay window and a cast iron solid fuel burner, while the second reception room also has a bay window, a wooden fireplace and lovely period features such as coving and picture rails.

The kitchen/dining room has a classic look with glossy white units, solid wood worksurfaces, several integrated appliances and a peninsular forming a breakfast bar. The dining area is sizeable enough to accommodate a dining table and six to eight chairs.

On the first floor, there are five bedrooms and a well-appointed and recently renovated family bathroom decorated in a Victorian style, with a roll-top bath and underfloor heating. The principal bedroom benefits from an ensuite shower room with a newly installed white suite.

The house also has a stunning side extension, currently used as a gym, but has the potential to be used as a home office or with the necessary permissions, as an Airbnb.

Outside, the fully enclosed garden measures more than 100ft in length and is mostly laid to lawn with a paved patio immediately adjacent to the house. A wealth of fruit-bearing trees and shrubs softens the landscape and includes four apple and two plum trees, a gooseberry bush, blackberry shrubs and rhubarb.

At the front, there is a tarmac driveway with parking space for up to seven vehicles.
