With this property the dream of a possible change of lifestyle and a slower pace of life could become a reality. Gadshill is a delightful, detached house originally built in 1925. It has been totally renovated and refurbished within the past few years and incorporates a new roof, new plumbing, electrics, boiler, kitchen and bathroom and all the walls have been replastered and redecorated. Also included with the property is a separate building that houses the local village post office and general store. This has also been revamped by the owners who have been running it for the past seven years. It is well supported by the local community and it is hoped that new owners will enjoy continuing to develop this successful business that is such a focal point in St Lawrence village.


The front garden has been designed with dual curved paths to the front door divided by a dwarf hedge with a central paved feature and flanked by attractive shrub borders. There is a pergola on one side and a wooden garden shed accessed via double glazed doors on the other, with the same wood reflected in the charming porch. The entrance hall leads to the spacious open plan, light and bright lounge/dining room. In the lounge area there is an attractive fireplace you can cosy up to on a cold winter’s evening. However, in order to take advantage of the stunning views across to the sea there are windows on three sides as well as a large square bay window in the dining area with wide sliding patio doors to a decked veranda and direct access to a well fitted modern kitchen. This includes white glossy units housing a induction hob, double oven and dishwasher with space for a washing machine and an American style fridge freezer as well as French doors to the decked veranda and terrace.


On the first floor is a contemporary family bathroom and three double bedrooms that all have delightful views including the main bedroom. This has fitted wardrobes and a large bay with a wall of windows so you can sit up in bed with your morning coffee and revel in the panoramic vista. As well as the decked veranda and paved terrace, that is ideal for al fresco dining, the rear garden provides a Mediterranean style ambience with its palm trees, plantings and rockery as well as a lawn and covered pergola where you could have a hot tub or seating area. Although the front of the property is on Undercliff Drive the shop and post office are accessed from round the corner in Spindlers Road so it does not interfere with the house. However, it does include the garage and a parking space as well as the shop, a very useful office as well as a kitchen area, storeroom and a cloakroom, so it is self-sufficient.
