Property Description

Opportunities to purchase an apartment of this calibre in this location are rare to come by. 8 Challacombe at Byron is a superb and very spacious, high quality 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom purpose built top floor apartment situated in a central and convenient location. The property is located in the garden area of the development and is centred around an attractive landscaped courtyard. There is a large south facing balcony that stetches across the entire width of the apartment and provides a great space for al-fresco dining and sun bathing.

8 Challacombe is part of the impressive Byron development which sits in a fantastic position on Woolacombe sea front and is just a few hundred metres away from the stunning golden sand beach that stretches for 2 1/2 miles across the bay. The apartment is one of the largest properties in the building and it is unusual to find an apartment with 4 bedrooms making this a perfect retreat for the larger family or for holiday letting to larger groups of people. Indeed, the holiday rental income for this property is very strong with the 2022 season pulling in a gross income of £45,676. Tariffs have been increased since then for the current season and weekly rates range from £1,050 in the low season up to £3,500 in the peak summer weeks. (a full breakdown of figures are available upon request).

The spacious accommodation comprises four bedrooms and three bathrooms and a fantastic 27ft x 27ft L-shaped bright and airy open plan living/dining/kitchen area which has virtually the whole of the front elevation devoted to full height glazing. There are double doors that open onto the huge privately owned balcony as well as further large bi-folding doors that can be fully retracted to provide a seamless link between the living accommodation and the outdoor space. The glazed doors perfectly frame the views out over the communal courtyard and over the rooftops to the village, Potters Hill and the coutryside and out towards the golden sand beach, Baggy and Hartland Points. The kitchen is equipped with a range of integrated appliances which include an oven and microwave/combination oven, a fridge and freezer, a dishwasher and wine fridge. There is an island unit which also forms a breakfast bar and with plenty of space for several stools. Along the hallway, the four bedrooms are all generously sized with two of them having their own en suite facilities and there is a further family bathroom. Bedroom 1 also has fully retractable b-i-folding doors onto the balcony and also enjoys the pleasant and open views over the village to the countryside, the beach and Baggy and Hartland Points. All of the bathrooms have attractive tiling and modern white sanitary ware with the two en suites having large walk-in showers and the family bathroom having a full bath with a shower over. There are contemporary, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout and a passenger lift access from all floors within the building, including from the underground car park where there is an allocated parking space for the apartment. The passenger lift provides a safe and a easy route for persons of all abilities to access all areas of the building and the leisure facilities.

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 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 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 2½ miles of golden sand that stretch across to Putsborough, there are 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 and the South West Coastal Footpath provides miles and miles of walking to enjoy 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.
