Property Description

This fabulous waterside apartment has quirky, contemporary accommodation and is well-presented throughout and sits in an enviable location in the heart of Ilfracombe sea front, immediately adjacent to the sea. In fact, you cannot get any closer to the sea than where this apartment is situated; the outstanding views stretch across the Bristol Channel and along the immediate rugged coastline and across to the Welsh coastline in the distance on the other side of the Channel. Apartment 9 Oceanside sits on the top floor of this large and attractive stone fronted imposing building which was converted from a former hotel in 2006. There is the considerable benefit of a passenger lift to all floors within the building giving easy access for elderly or disabled residents. The property enjoys arguably one of finest locations within Ilfracombe and is located just a few minutes mainly level stroll from the picturesque harbour which is the home of Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue which has been responsible for attracting many visitors to the town over recent years. The bustling seafront has many good quality restaurants and bars along with small independent shops, a Theatre, Art Galleries and various beaches. The apartment is considered ideal as a low maintenance permanent home or alternatively would make a high quality second home/holiday let. The current owners have run the property as a very successful holiday let in recent years deriving an annual income in the region of £25,000.

Apartment 9 is one of two top (third) floor apartments with access via the communal stairway or the passenger lift direct from the ground floor lobby. The apartment offers quirky accommodation which makes it highly desirable as a holiday let and benefits from a large mezzanine floor. The entrance hall has all rooms leading off and has a security intercom connection to the main front door. The heart of the home is a cleverly designed open plan living room/kitchen which enjoys the superb uninterrupted sea and coastal views and has double doors leading directly out onto the generous sea facing balcony. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern base and wall units and is complimented by integrated appliances which include a double oven with a hob and extractor canopy over, a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. There is a breakfast bar and the lounge area which has a space saver staircase leading up to the mezzanine floor which can be used as an additional occasional bedroom, a study/office area or as an additional sitting room/chill out space. There are two large Velux style roof light windows allowing plenty of daylight to flood in and a modern glass balustrade which overlooks the lounge area below.

There are two good sized bedrooms with bedroom 1 having its own en suite shower room and view out over the town and towards the Torrs. Bedroom 2 is located on the seaward side of the building and enjoys the views over the channel and coastline. The family bathroom has a modern white suite with all the usual fittings and a shower over the bath.

The 20ft long balcony is an excellent amenity space and perfect to sit out and enjoy the magnificent and far reaching sea and coastal views. There is room for a table and chairs making it ideal for al-fresco dining or an evening drink after a long day on the beach!

The fabulous waterside location is a real treat and we fully advise an early internal inspection of this delightful and unique apartment to appreciate the accommodation on offer.

AGENTS NOTE 1: The property is leasehold with the balance of an original 999 year lease which commenced on 1st January 2004. The freehold is vested within the Management Company, 'The Capstone Management Company Ltd.' and each apartment owner has a 1/10th share in the company. The service charge which includes maintenance of the common internal and external areas is currently £175 per month (£2,100 per annum). There is no restriction on holiday or assured short hold letting and up to two domesticated pets are allowed with written permission from the management company.
