Situated on the outskirts of the charming coastal village of Ardfern, Higher Hey is a beautifully presented detached property sitting in a tranquil location.
The property is accessed from the private gravel driveway, leading through a central hallway and into a large, open lounge. Patio doors open up to a paved area at the rear, flooding the room with natural daylight. A wood burning stove is complemented by maple wood flooring, giving the room an inviting and homely feel.
Adjacent to the lounge, a stylish fitted kitchen offers practicality and convenience in equal measure, with bespoke moulded grey worktops complimenting the modern white units. A glazed door leads through to a sun lounge, a more recent addition to the property. With its elevated garden position, this triple glazed lounge offers superb views across the rear lawn and to the countryside beyond.
The kitchen extends into a dining room through an open plan arch, giving a practical space to dine with the family. A trapdoor in the kitchen leads to a half height cellar space which has recently been used to house a wine collection.
The ground floor is completed by a well-equipped utility room, wet room bathroom, complete with walk-in shower and storage cupboard.
An open wooden staircase leads from the lounge to the upper floor, where a main landing and a stepped landing lead to four bedrooms, three of which are double in size, with one additional twin bedroom. The master bedroom also offers full en-suite facilities. A family bathroom and landing study area complete the upper floor accommodation.
Higher Hey would make a delightful family home, and with its desirable location, could easily be operated as a holiday home with significant income potential.
Externally a double garage is accessed from the driveway and offers flexibility for storage and workshop space. A detached woodshed is located to the side. The property benefits from mature gardens, with the rear garden mostly laid to lawn. Other areas have been set aside for the planting of shrubs, plants and trees. An area of amenity ground surrounds the property, with beneficial use granted to the owner.
