Property Description


Opportunities to purchase an apartment of this calibre in this location are rare to come by. 5 Castle Rock is a beautifully appointed and very spacious three bedroom waterside apartment in an attractive purpose built block, enjoying an exquisite southerly aspect with magnificent uninterrupted views across the whole of Woolacombe Bay and the rugged coastline, taking in the 3 miles of the golden sand main beach out to Putsborough and Baggy Point, onto Hartland Point and across the Bay to Lundy Island and Morte Point. The property is located on the first floor and can be reached by both the stairs and a lift. The sunny, elevated location offers a quieter position away from the hustle and bustle of the village centre yet still allows easy access to the local amenities, the picturesque walks along the South West Coastal Footpath and of course, the fabulous golden sand beaches. The property provides a great vantage point for the stunning sunsets that are regular throughout the year.

The current owners have kept the apartment in show home condition since they first purchased it. It has been utilized as a holiday home for the family, who have all thoroughly enjoyed coming to Woolacombe to simply relax, unwind and enjoy the spectacular views. The apartment is ideal as a high quality holiday home or holiday let but equally would afford a very comfortable and low maintenance permanent home as well. The building is well-maintained and efficiently run by the Management Company, which is made up of the 11 apartment owners.

There are many wow factors once you step inside, not least the welcoming feel that you get in the entrance hall creating the ultimate first impression. The entrance hall has a couple of useful storage cupboards, video door entry system, intercom and has all doors leading off to the principle rooms.
From the hallway, it's hard not to gravitate toward to rear of the property, from either the living room or the main bedroom, where the breath-taking coastal views are immediately evident. The real heart of this home is the impressive, light filled and beautifully presented open plan living room/diner/kitchen, which has been designed with modern living in mind and provides ample space to entertain family and friends. This room has new sliding doors that lead out onto the balcony. The balcony is a real stand out feature and is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the wide vista coastal views. The kitchen area is ultra-modern and is fully equipped with a range of high quality surfaces, units and integrated appliances. The open plan really does make the most of the natural light and views from every inch of the room. The main bedroom is a good size double room, which features built in wardrobes, a newly fitted and stylish en-suite shower room, and access out on to the balcony. The views from this bedroom are quite simply stunning. There are two further bedrooms, both of which are good size double rooms, together with a well-presented separate family bathroom, which again, is ultra-modern and has only recently been installed.

The imposing yet attractive building was built back in 2002 and is a high quality purpose built development. The property sits in large privately owned grounds approached via a driveway and located on the water’s edge, immediately adjacent to the South West Coastal Footpath which meanders its way through the neighbouring National Trust headland. The closest beaches are Grunta, a quieter rocky cove and Combesgate with its golden sand and plethora of rock pools to explore; both are within a few hundred metres of the apartment. The centre of the village of Mortehoe is just over 500 metres away with the further amenities and beaches in Woolacombe are also within easy reach. Within the grounds there is plenty of on-site parking with each apartment having an allocated space but plenty of additional spaces for visitors too.

Outside, Castle Rock is approached via private driveway which has a rising bollard for security and leads down to the various parking areas that the property has. Each apartment has its own allocated parking space with number 5's space being conveniently located. The large lower car park provides numerous additional parking spaces which are for the shared use of all of the apartments within the building.

Woolacombe sits on the rugged North Devon Coast and amidst the surrounding National Trust land. It is an extremely popular and well known village throughout the UK primarily due to its stunning golden sand beach. Many visitors flock to the area throughout the year but especially through the summer months. 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 medical centre, pharmacy and a primary school which has an 'outstanding' rating from Ofsted. As well as the 2 1/2 miles of golden sand that stretches across to Putsborough there is 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. There is also Grunta beach which is a smaller and quieter private cove. 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. The Exmoor National Park is also just a short drive away. Mortehoe, at the top of the hill, has a village store, post office, two public houses serving food, a church, take-away restaurants and a tea rooms.

Barnstaple is North Devon's main trading centre is approximately 12 miles away and has many of the bigger name shops, a rail link to Exeter which has direct trains to the London Stations and direct access on the main A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27. There is a helipad at Chivenor and the nearest airports are at Exeter and Bristol.

A full internal viewing is an absolute must to fully appreciate the grandeur and quality of this outstanding coastal home.

The property is leasehold with the balance of a 999 year lease which commenced on the 1st April 2002. The freehold is vested in the Management Company which is made up of the 11 apartment owners. Peninsula Management are the appointed Managing Agent and they oversee the day to day running of the building. The service charge is currently £4,000 per annum which is paid annually in June, this is the same for all apartments within the building. We understand that pets are allowed within the building and a written consent for the pet is given by the Management Company. With regard to holiday letting, any request for any apartment to be holiday let is reviewed by the Management Company and a decision given based on the best interests of all of the shareholders (apartment owners). Currently, there are no apartments within the block that are used for holiday letting purposes but there have been in the past.
