Prepare to be completely mesmerized, by the outstanding natural beauty, of the awe-inspiring setting that Alveley proudly nestles amongst.
With a magical charm, this delightful property stands enviably above the cliff tops, encircled by a spectacular panorama, of rolling fields, atmospheric sea and the dramatic coastline over to the World renowned Worms Head. Built in 1935, this detached four bedroom house takes full advantage of the natural light and hypnotising views in the principle living areas, providing an ambience enriched by the ever changing skies and sea moods, to create a unique family home or delightful holiday home. Located in the pretty hamlet of Pitton, near the coastal village of Rhossili, home to the glorious Rhossili Bay, voted amongst the top ten beaches in Europe. Alveley combines age-old charm, with the comfort of modern living, to include; a storm porch, hall, cloakroom, boot room, lovely open plan family living space, with stripped wooden floorboards, double glazed sash windows and a wood burning stove, comprising reception 1 and reception 2 with a sun room off, a stylish kitchen-dining room, with granite work tops and an oil fired Rayburn, split level landing, four double bedrooms, bathroom, separate wc, a loft room and a detached home office-studio. Externally the gated, sweeping circular driveway provides ample parking, and the first taste of the captivating setting. There are fabulous "low maintenance" grounds of roughly 1.8 acres, facing south, with extensive established lawned areas, a pond, summerhouse and natural meadowland that meanders down to a private stile that eventually gives access to the coastal footpath and beaches. Spoilt by the blend of a country and coastal retreat, this is the perfect haven to enjoy life alongside the picturesque splendour of nature, where you will be spell-bound by majestic views and sunsets and take the time to just stand and stare.
