Despite new housing nearby, the heart of the hamlet retains its oldeworlde feel in the cluster around the parish church and graveyard. This listed house enjoys views over the countrysid­e, yet is a couple of minutes car journey to the Whitletts roundabout. It’s called ‘ St Evox’ which is an alternate spelling of St Quivox. And the bow windowed bay combined with the front facing twin gables and statement twin chimney stacks make it unique. Agents Corum say the present owner has cherished the home. They say: “This fantastic Grade C- listed home has been lovingly renovated and restored by the current owner over many years to form a truly unique and characterf­ul detached family home. “No expense has been spared on the interior or external fabric of the building, with both in truly pristine condition and including quality floor coverings, luxury fittings, a Worcester combi boiler, tasteful décor and gorgeous hard and soft landscapin­g.” guests stay over. No expense has been spared on the bathroom, which has a big bath and separate shower cubicle. The fittings here are delux Victorian, which works really well. Outside the mature grounds include a stone wall, garage and secret courtyard. Contact Corum on 01292 880888, offers over £ 295,000. Back in the old days it appears there was an inn on this site, keeping farmers and locals from thirst. From the front you can see both the sea and countrysid­e, and a south westerly entrance porch enjoys the sun. As well as the feature lounge, there is a large sitting room with high ceilings. St Evox has three double bedrooms, so plenty of space for a family or to have Mossblown 01292 521777 www. lloydkitch­ens. co. uk PRINTED AND DISTRIBUTE­D BY PRESSREADE­R PressReade­r. com + 1 604 278 4604 .
