Situated in a very enviable beach front location just metres from the award winning golden sand surfing beaches is this much improved, bright and airy spacious and well-presented second floor apartment. The property enjoys views from the side of the building, from its own privately owned balcony, out over Woolacombe Bay and across to Lundy Island. The property is perfect for those looking for a high quality beachside retreat and is ideal as a permanent home or alternatively as a second home or holiday let. 8 Devon Beach Court is one of 14 apartments in this large former hotel that was converted in the early 2000's. The superb location not only gives quick and easy access to the beaches but also to the village centre shops, restaurants and amenities. The present owner has made several recent improvements including a new kitchen and en suite shower room, new contemporary internal doors throughout and an attractive and hard wearing grey oak style luxury vinyl tiled flooring in the hallway, living room and bathrooms.
The building has access from both the front and the rear; the front being from The Esplanade which gives the very quick and easy access to the beaches. There is parking at the rear, in Rockfield Road, and apartment 8 has an allocated parking space as well as there being additional shared visitors parking spaces. The rear entrance provides ease of access to the car park and the passenger lift to all floors makes navigating around the building trouble-free for all.
At present, the property is used as a successful holiday let and produces an annual income in the region of £21,000. The furniture and equipment is available to purchase by separate negotiation, if required, to enable the holiday letting to seamlessly continue.
Woolacombe sits on the rugged North Devon Coast and amidst the surrounding National Trust land and is an extremely popular and well known village throughout the UK primarily due to its stunning beach which has previously held the accolade as the No. 1 beach in the country by Trip Advisor.

The village has an array of facilities which include a variety of small independent shops, a selection of cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes, a health centre, chemist and a Primary School which has an 'outstanding' rating from Ofsted. As well as main stretch of golden sand, there is also Barricane and Combesgate beaches which have rock pools to explore and the former having a beachside kiosk selling delicious Sri Lankan curries through the summer season. The surrounding National Trust Land provides miles and miles of walking enjoying some of the finest coastal scenery on offer. There are a variety of leisure facilities and excellent nearby golf courses with the best known being the two links courses at Saunton, one of which is at championship standard.
