Although to be honest, it straddles a couple of eras, hovering around the late 1960s and early ’70s in both construction and interior. Either way, it’s a period piece, very distinctive in look and very likely individually designed – although the agent is giving nothing away on that front.

Anyway, behind that staple of the ’70s, the pampas grass, is a house inspired by modernism and to be honest, looking quite stern. However, it is a house that offers plenty of space and as we hinted at above, plenty of original period style.

According to the agent, West Beach sits at the head of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in ‘well established’ gardens, with views of the wooded hillsides of Ilsham Valley, along with Meadfoot Beach.
