Amenities and special features of this house

Petite French Abode
Situated at the foot of renown Jacobs Ladder in St James and a very short walk to the beach, this charming 1900's stone double story "chateau" has been lovingly, tastefully restored and renovated by its current owner. High ceilings, ornate cornices, hand painted stained glass windows, chandeliers, beautiful woodwork, shutters and wooden floors throughout.
The entrancing picturesque garden is packed with features, a pond, statuary and ironwork.
Hand cut ancient marble stone steps welcome you to a generous veranda with marble flagstones, arches, pillars and shutters for all weather entertaining.
Eye catching hand painted stained glass windows and a potential open fireplace perfect this garden terrace.
Fabulous tall wrap- around arched doors open to an inviting entrance hall with the original panelled staircase. On the right, the extended kitchen/ dining room features floor to ceiling built-ins with shell and rose wood carved pediments. The open plan dining flows into the lounge with an exquisitely grand window of hand painted roses, and then back onto the veranda perfect for indoor and outdoor living.
There is a small walk in cupboard under the stairs and the double doors off the dining room lead to a covered area on the side of the house.
On the left there is a study/ third bedroom with a bay window and a guest toilet cum laundry, to which a shower could easily be added.
Upstairs you will find a second bedroom which is presently a spacious open plan sitting room featuring a bay window with hand painted glass and an en-suite bathroom. This delightful bright room leads onto the enclosed patio with spectacular uninterrupted sea views.
The main bedroom is vast, with a Juliette balcony and en-suite dressing room and bathroom.
The stairs continue to the large attic, which has the potential to be further accommodation or a sun downer terrace.
Properties such as this, are few and far between. Plenty of room to put your own stamp on this fabulous old world beach house where you can literally fall asleep to the magical sound of the waves below.
