A unique property standing alone in a splendid prominent position on the Coast Road close to Marsden Grotto, a short distance from the historic picturesque Whitburn Village, commanding magnificent uninterrupted panoramic sea and coastal views. Six windows on the front elevation maximise the dramatic coastal aspect.
Well placed for access to the regional road network and A1(M).
It has the splendid setting of a Site with a frontage of approximately 34.44m (113ft) and a depth of approximately 29.10m (95ft 6ins). The boundary on three sides is of natural stonework – the remaining side high timber fencing. The extensive land area has been imaginatively laid out to provide landscaped gardens, block paved effect driveway and large patios plus a raised lawned area with the possible future plan of constructing a swimming pool.
Built in the 1930’s and in the present Ownership since about 2003.
The property has been transformed by reconfiguration of the internal layout and complete upgrading to provide a family sized residence.
Offered with early vacant possession.
Internal inspection is essential for full appreciation.
