Refined style is evident throughout this six-bed home, even extending to the garden where there is a raised terrace, perfect for evening drinks.

Set on 0.3 acres of land close to the sea, 2 Sloperton is a large family home where everything has been finished to a high standard. Built in the Victorian era, it has been modernised throughout, while still retaining many of its period features that give it such elegance. 

Granite steps lead up to the front door, and the beautiful entrance hallway sets the tone for the rest of the house perfectly. It features a marble floor, ceiling coving, a sash window with working shutters and an archway through to the inner hallway.
