Little Greyfriars was originally a wing of a large early Victorian house which was divided into 3 detached properties in the early 1950s.
The house presents shallow red brick elevations under a tiled roof with magnificent chimneys and attractive leaded windows, a feature of the local architecture. Internally the house has two well-proportioned reception rooms each with a brick fireplace and both providing views towards the sea. The kitchen/breakfast room has an oil fired Aga and an adjacent room provides a large walk in pantry. Off the reception hall is a study and a shower room.
On the first floor there are five double bedrooms and a large family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have fabulous views across the gardens and grounds towards the sea.

Little Greyfriars occupies a wonderful setting accessed via a sweeping driveway through an area of woodland leading to a large parking and turning area.
The stunning gardens and grounds extend to approximately 12 acres in total. Immediately around the house the gardens include areas of lawn interspersed by shrub and flower borders. There is an attractive area of walled garden accessed from the kitchen which in turn leads out to the main gardens to the east. To the west of the house there is a further small courtyard adjacent to which is the brick garage and garden store beyond which is a sheltered, partly walled kitchen garden.
Beyond the immediate gardens a wide swaithe of meadow leads down to the cliffs, bordered on one side by attractive mature woodland. The meadow extends to the cliffs, beyond which is the beach.
