Company info

I am a local, I love that I can live by the sea but still be surrounded by farmland and natural forest, I am passionate about interior design and this village.

Property info

How many people can say they slept in an old Pub built in 18oo's! Built from Stone and timber, in colour she is still bold like all pubs were, but her interior is calm and simple to reflect her age, still surrounded by original gardens and buildings

Neighborhood info

Alexander Terrace is stunning from end to end, rich in history, there is a sense of pride from the beautifully kept buildings to gorgeous gardens. The Terrace winds along the base of the Nut and has the majestic Nut towering above and the bay in front. The village of Stanley has cafes, restaurants and beautiful beaches as well as historic buildings and the Nut!
