Property Description

The Beach House is a stunning, architecturally designed and very individual detached family home built for the current owners own occupation back in 2014. The home was built to a very high specification and has accommodation amounting to approximately 297m2 (3,197ft2) and is situated in a select and private enviable elevated position enjoying outstanding far reaching views to a wide vista over the town and the surrounding countryside taking in the picturesque harbour and Hillsborough, the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh Coast and across to Hele Bay and the Coastguard Cottages beyond.

This outstanding home really is one of a kind and has a real wow factor with its uniquely designed contemporary accommodation perfect for the family market and having a particularly bright and airy feel. The spacious reception rooms are all orientated towards the fabulous sea and coastal views with the two larger bedrooms also enjoying the same vista. A real feature of the property is the stunning 33ft long entrance hallway with its central oak staircase which provides a grand and particularly impressive welcome to the property. Equally, if not more impressive, is the huge 24ft x 18ft first floor galleried landing which has a plethora of glazing including a rear facing Juliet balcony and an array of roof light windows over, and a superb front study area/sitting room with a 14ft high vaulted ceiling and full height glass to the apex of the roof as well as direct access to a large sea facing balcony. Throughout the property there are high quality fixtures and fittings and tasteful, neutral modern decor and floor coverings with the external facade blending a combination of red brick, low maintenance weatherboarding, aluminium framed double glazed windows and doors and a solid oak and glass balcony feature which stretches the width of the property. There are 'green' features too. There are 19 solar PV panels on the south facing elevation of the main roof which provide a supplementary supply to the domestic electricity. In addition, there is also solar hot water system which supplements the job of the gas fired boiler. There is underfloor central heating throughout the house and double glazed windows and doors as previously mentioned.

The home sits in a predominantly level plot of just over 1/2 an acre and is approached via its own private driveway which provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and leads to a detached double garage/workshop. The gardens surround the property and enjoys plenty of sunlight throughout the day. The gardens also enjoy the far reaching views of the countryside and coastline and are a great vantage point for some of the stunning sunsets throughout the year.

Channel View is located approximately 1 mile from the high street and a similar distance to the picturesque sea front and harbour. The harbour is also home to Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue which stands at the edge of the pier. There are a range of restaurants, bars and shops in both the sea front area and the High Street and a modern theatre and cinema. Ilfracombe Golf Club is just a short drive from the property and has splendid coastal views and there is a championship golf course at nearby Saunton. The towns schools for all ages are also within easy reach and there is private education at the very well-known and respected West Buckland School which runs a daily bus service to and from the various towns and villages in the locality. There are local supermarkets including Tesco, Lidl and Co-Op. Barnstaple, which is North Devon's main trading centre is approximately 11 miles away and has many of the big named shops, a rail link and access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at Junction 27. The Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 60 miles where there is the nearest airport as well as direct rail links to the major stations in London. Likewise, Tiverton Parkway Station also has direct links to London and is closer at around 50 miles.

You cannot fail but to be impressed upon entering the property into the delightful, bright and airy entrance hall. The feeling of space and light is immediately evident and the hall provides a central spine for all of the rooms to lead off. The hall is more akin to an additional reception room with the rear of the hall providing a sitting area which has direct access to the garden via sliding door onto a large paved patio. The heart of the home of the home is the very sociable and open plan living and kitchen area which measures a very generous 30ft x 19ft overall and is great for family living and entertaining. The kitchen area is fitted with an extensive range of modern units complimented by black granite work surfaces over and integrated appliances. The majority of appliances are Neff branded (all expect the fridge and freezer) and include an oven and a separate microwave/combination oven with a warming drawer under. An induction hob with a pop up extractor unit is set into the island unit which also forms a breakfast bar. There is a dishwasher and a full height fridge and separate full height freezer. At the side of the kitchen a sliding door opens onto the side patio. The living room enjoys the delightful sea and coastal views from the sliding doors at the front which also open onto a front deck. Within the room there is a contemporary gas fire which provides a focal point and has provision for a wall hung television above. Across the hallway is a spacious separate dining room, again enjoying the views and having direct access from the sliding doors onto the front deck within the garden.

Furthermore on the ground floor, there is a cloakroom/wc and a large utility room which is fitted and equipped with a range of base and wall cupboards with black granite work surfaces over and plumbing for an automatic washing machine/dryer. There is an abundance of storage within the fitted cupboards as well there being two large floor to ceiling built-in store cupboards. These cupboards house the hot water tank and the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water as well as the controls for the solar hot water system. The utility room has direct access at the side onto the garden.

Moving to the first floor, light pours into the large and impressive galleried landing which sees the staircase sit centrally and all the remaining rooms within the house lead off. There is a useful store/linen cupboard and the hatch to the loft space. At the rear of the landing is a Juliet balcony with a glass balustrade and at the front there is a superb sitting/study area which has full height glazing to the apex of a 14ft high vaulted ceiling. The glazing perfectly frames the fabulous far reaching views over the town to Hillsborough and the countryside, down onto the harbour, pier and to Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue and to a wide vista over the Bristol Channel and along the rugged coastline. Sliding doors open on a large sea facing balcony with a glass balustrade.

The master bedroom suite comprises the bedroom, dressing room and en suite bathroom. The sea and coastal views can be admired whilst lying in bed. The dressing room has fitted wardrobes to the length of one wall and leads into the en suite bathroom which is beautifully appointed and attractively tiled and has a bath and a separate walk-in shower cubicle. Bedroom 2, has a similar set-up with views to be enjoyed from the bed. Whilst there isn't a dressing room, there is an en suite shower room which has contemporary fittings. At the rear of the house there are two further double sized bedrooms both of which benefit from views from the side of the house over the countryside but still also towards the sea. One of the bedrooms is currently used as a study/office. The family bathroom enjoys a modern finish with attractive tiling and has a bath and a separate walk-in shower cubicle.

Outside, the property has its own sweeping brick paved driveway which provides off road parking for numerous vehicles and leads up to the detached double garage block. Alongside the drive is a large, attractive and colourful well-stocked rockery/flowerbed with a variety of heathers and shrubs. The garage has two electrically operated up-and-over doors, light and power and the controls for the solar PV panels. There is access to a large boarded loft storage area which has Velux windows. Immediately behind the garage is a paved courtyard which accesses a part covered bin store/storage area. Adjacent to the large rockery flowerbed is a private gravelled sitting area.

There is a large and level front lawned garden which stretches across the width of the plot and enjoys the sea, coastal and countryside views. A raised decked terrace runs along the width of the house and can be directly accessed from the living room and the dining room. At the far left hand side of the house there are curved slate steps which lead onto a raised lawned garden and which is an area that has been earmarked for a swimming pool (if required). Immediately behind the house is a large 'L-shaped' wrap-around south facing sun terrace which is a great spot for barbeques, al-fresco dining, entertaining and sun bathing. There are outside lights and outdoor power points and there is provision for a hot tub too. The terraces runs the width of the property and around to the right hand side of the house where the sea and coastal views can be enjoyed.

The Beach House truly is a stunning example of a contemporary and highly individual family home situated in an outstanding location. Houses of this type and size are extremely rare and we fully advise an early and full internal inspection to appreciate the facilities and size of the accommodation on offer.
