Stunning marine-side house


This stunning marine-side house is situated in a no-through private road in Aldwick with direct access to the beach and commanding far-reaching views over the coastline.

Tamarisk, in Aldwick Avenue, is set in the most beautiful landscaped gardens with beach-side areas for entertaining.

It has been the subject of an architect-led project of refurbishment and re-modelling, creating a unique home.

The property is designed to reflect a colonial/Caribbean style, with cedar panelling, plantation shutters and elegant floor to ceiling windows maximising the impact of the sea views.

The interior amounts to just under 4,000sqft and provides beautifully appointed accommodation equally suited as a full-time family home or beach-side retreat.

A spacious reception hall with polished limestone flagged floor opens on to a south-facing sitting room of some 30ft in length, with garden/dining room beyond having full length windows and plantation shutters looking out over the landscaped gardens.

This communicates easily with the adjacent kitchen/breakfast room, specially designed by Grech & Grech.

An extensive range of bespoke matching units have polished stone and hardwood work surfaces and an excellent range of Miele integrated appliances, including eye level oven, plate warming drawers, steam oven, coffee maker and wine cooler.

An informal breakfast area also has full length windows with direct access on to the gardens.

On the northern side of the house there is a family room and study, both with bleached oak floors, providing alternative areas for relaxation away from the main reception rooms.

A discreetly located utility room and plant room provide ample ancillary storage space.

On the first floor, a turned bleached oak staircase rises past an elegant three quarter height arched window to a galleried landing which opens on to an impressive sitting/dressing room, flooding the first floor with natural light.

This impressive room has a dramatic vaulted ceiling and picture doors opening on to a balcony commanding far-reaching marine views.

The bedroom accommodation is generous, including both principal and guest suites, each enjoying stunning sea views.

Three further bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and an additional shower room en-suite to the third bedroom.

All bathrooms are beautifully appointed, several with Villeroy & Boch suites and a new water softener system has been installed.

Outside, a discreet walled approach to the property has been professionally landscaped providing ample casual parking and access to the integral garage.

The professionally landscaped gardens are a particular feature of Tamarisk, designed to provide a series of sheltered sitting and entertaining areas with different planting themes, with a bleached stone terrace, central area of lawn, pebble strewn areas, greenhouse/nursery/potting shed, sitting areas and a boat house.
