Karelia is a wonderfully secluded three-bedroom cottage of enormous charm and character. Built in the 1950s it has been recently modernised, including the development of some very good loft space which is now an upstairs sitting room with terrific sea views, two bedrooms and a bathroom. The conservatory gives further additional living space on the ground floor and there are enough bedrooms to use one as a study, if needs be.

The accommodation in total comprises: two reception rooms, three bedrooms, bedroom four/studio, bathroom, shower room, breakfasting kitchen and conservatory.

Outside the property has a timber garage and a car port and in the garden is a summer house, which also has sea views. The house is surrounded by a large, mature private garden with a patio, lawn and side garden while the summer house has a built-in barbecue. The land comes to around a third of an acre.
