At the top of a lane and with a direct sea view, 8 Ranas Place is a charming but substantial stone-built detached cottage with outstanding potential as a family home or investment property. Typical of this style and age of the property, it is entered straight from the street, with the entrance opening into a tiled hallway. Built-in approximately 1900, the property has been extended slightly and is a substantial 111 m2. The house has been decorated in white and has white panel doors and retains many traditional features.

A fabulous country-style kitchen is in an L-shaped layout arranged along two long walls, leaving space in the centre for a large kitchen table and plenty of room for free-standing furniture. A sizeable stainless range with six burners and an extractor hood lend a contemporary edge. The cabinetry is white with wooden-style worksurfaces complemented by white tiled and black and grey mosaic splash areas. This clean palette gives the room a delightful, fresh feel and ensures it captures the plentiful natural light, further enhanced by the original window that looks into a later extension that now houses a large utility room.

The living room features a deep chimney breast and cast-iron stove set into a hearth that is finished with a beautiful beam as a mantel. A coombed alcove created by the rise of the staircase makes an exciting shape and lends considerable character to the room. The bathroom is generously proportioned and well arranged, with a large bath, separate shower enclosure, WC and wash hand basin.

Straight, carpeted stairs lead to a landing with a unique window with a stepped sill that faces south-west. The first-floor features delightful sloped attic ceilings on both sides and a window in the north-west eave. There are three large bedrooms, one of which is a double aspect with views to the front and rear of the property. The others are also generous and each have dormer windows offering fabulous views of the sea. There is also a fourth box room, an ideal home office or craft space.

Accessed from the utility room, the exterior consists of a white-washed courtyard, with steps leading to a shed and wood store. This space has enormous scope to create a fabulous contemporary outdoor space. A gate opens onto an open parking area. This is an incredible property steeped in history. It boasts beautiful original details complemented by modern touches. The house is available to walk into and offers a beautiful family home or an outstanding investment opportunity, especially as a potential holiday let. Early viewing is recommended to appreciate this beautiful house.
