Ever yearned for a cottage on the coast with great size gardens and a distinct rural aspect ? La Rocque is all this and more. Substantially extended by the current owners in 2004 and 2008, the result is a beautiful home which exudes charm and class.
Offering up to five bedrooms serviced by three bath or shower rooms, the master suite encompasses one end of the house whilst the reception rooms include a formal lounge and a separate snug. The superb hand made kitchen also boasts an Aga within an inglenook fireplace with adjacent furze oven, whilst also leading into the most recent addition - a sun room overlooking the gardens. Sitting on a site of approx 1 acre and enjoying large lawned gardens at the back together with an English Oak styled double garage, store room, playroom and stable, there is something here for all the family, in a truly idyllic location.
