The house itself, thought to originally be part of the grand Fairlight Hall Estate, is truly charming, the facade of which gives no indication of what lies inside. From the outside, it is every inch a period stone cottage which would not look out of place in the Welsh countryside, but inside, it is every bit a modernist home, exuding the warmth, texture and authenticity of the artists that have called this beautiful place home for more than 5 decades. While the interior retains much of its mid-Century character and may require some updating, it is still very comfortable. Having said that, its unique location and large plot offers huge potential, subject of course to the necessary permissions. There is scope here to either update the house as it stands, extend the property or rebuild to create a bespoke home that will take full advantage of the unrivalled views on offer. Outside, the gardens, which are mostly south east facing, are no less impressive. Having been lovingly tended over many years, they form an integral part of the overall experience of this special home, which also benefits from a large detached barn, smaller outbuilding and “in and out” driveway. Tucked out of sight in an elevated position towards the end of an unmade track, this beautiful coastal property may not be the easiest to get to, but it’s most definitely worth the effort if you do.


Entrance Hall

The front door opens into a hallway where U-shaped stairs lead to the first floor. Storage space under stairs. Doors to kitchen and main living room.

Open Plan Living Space

The heart of this house is this large triple aspect open plan living space, perfect for relaxing, dining, entertaining and socialising. A change in level in the room and a vintage fireplace with modern stove help to delineate two areas within the space that could serve different functions if desired. Sliding patio doors give access to the terrace and garden beyond.

Kitchen / Breakfast Room

Adjacent to the main living space is the very "cool" kitchen, brimming with mid-century character. Pine and painted cabinetry is fitted along two walls, with a window behind the stainless steel sink unit giving glorious views over the garden. Built-in Belling oven and Smeg electric induction hob. Baxi Boiler. Space for table and chairs and free standing fridge/freezer.

"Bererns" is set in a very peaceful, secluded setting at the end of a long private unmade track that very few people are aware of. As you approach the house, a five bar gate leads you onto a gravel driveway where there is parking and turning for a good number of vehicles in front of the large barn, which is at present divided into studio, storage and garaging space, but certainly offers further potential (subject to planning). Another useful smaller outbuilding is set on the other side of the gated access where there is also a pretty woodland area, full of bluebells and spring flowers. To the rear of the property is a more formal landscaped south facing garden where wonderfully mature trees, planting and yew hedging provide different areas of interest. A stone terrace along the back of the house provides a welcoming place to sit with a morning coffee and just take in the beautiful garden and amazing sea views.
