A stunning home that is about so much more than the sea views but what stunning views!
The view captures your attention as soon as you enter this home and time seems to stand still.
Subtle nuances float into your awareness, a change of light on the field, the gentle motion of waves on the sea, a glint of reflection on the Essex coast opposite and you begin to feel that time hasn't stopped, it has slowed and your senses have become more alive to the play of light.
After a while you realise that you have forgotten why you stand here and that so much weight has lifted from your shoulders, it's impromptu meditation; that is the magic of this view.
It is an experience the owners of this home had when they first visited. For them the drift back into the reality of the moment was in stark contrast to the experience you will have today.
They viewed a property that needed work, you will experience a home that is a testament to inspired design, choice and careful thought, plus hard work.
Here a home has been created that celebrates a wonderful coastal view, one that is constantly changing and full of interest.
Any sea view is special. When you have coastline and a view across the Thames Estuary like this, then you have a wholly different dimension to the pleasure a view provides.
Life is about more than a view, although you'd be forgiven for forgetting that here.
This is a home that is about taking a stroll out along the cliff top, following the steps down and walking along the shore of Leas Beach to Minster or Sheerness.
It's about popping in a car and driving to Shellness to take a walk through the Nature reserve and enjoy a superb meal at The Ferry House at Harty Ferry.
The sound of oyster catchers calling from the water’s edge will become a common accompaniment to life. The variety of birds that visit the shores and fields of Sheppey will keep you in touch with the changing seasons as does the seascape altering with lengthening and shortening days.
Sunsets from Minster Abbey or from a waterside retreat with a drink in hand and meal awaiting, these are some of the things that enrich island life.
Wonderful accommodation focuses upon keeping you in touch with the view. The original bungalow has been transformed to a dual level home, two bedrooms as you enter, a wonderful bathroom, utility room, storage and then an open plan living space that, well you'll be forgiven for glancing past this incredible space as the view hooks you once more.
Downstairs a stunning main bedroom is designed for you to wake up with that stunning backdrop and has a dressing room and delightful en suite.
A work from home area has been created, along with lots more storage. You need to be firm with yourself to focus upon work and not be lured into contemplation by the view again.
There are practical elements to this home, important ones. 16 solar panels provide electricity. Heating combines a conventional gas boiler with electric infrared ceiling panels to provide warmth in an efficient and cost-effective way.
Two balconies lure you to enjoy that view and a beautifully landscaped garden wends its way gently to a rose garden and seating area; this home is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends.
Trains connect Sittingbourne with Sheerness and the M2 is an easy drive from the island.
There's lots to discover on Sheppey from Bartons Point Coastal Park, beaches and the town of Sheerness, to Elmley Nature Reserve, three thousand three hundred acres of wilderness and beauty.
The view from this home will capture your heart; explore the area around and you'll understand why the owners love 'Island Life' so much.Get in touch if you like this home.
