This impressive five bedroom detached home (ideal for 9 or 10) with original building dating back to the 1860's is situated just outside the picturesque and popular village of Croyde with its large sandy cove that is a magnet for families and surfers alike. A local character pub serving meals is half a mile down the road with a further choice of pubs, cafes and restaurants just beyond in the centre of the village itself.
The original building dates back to the 1860's and The Property has been extended and renovated to create a desirable holiday home, lovingly furnished, tastefully decorated and equipped for comfort and enjoyment by the owners. The house is an ideal choice to gather family or groups of friends, for special celebrations or fun and relaxing holidays. The approach to the house from the driveway is up a few steps. An attractive glass and wood vestibule to the side of the house has a beautiful tiled floor whilst a fabulous wet room is at the rear of the vestibule, ideal for rinsing away the sand under the showers when you have just come back from the beach. The beautiful living area benefits from a wood burning stove set in a part exposed stone and brick alcove with slate hearth. The dining table offers seating for ten, great for getting together to discuss plans for the next day's activities over an evening meal and glass of wine. The triple aspect kitchen space has been thoughtfully designed with granite worktops, contemporary white units and stone tile flooring. The hob is located in the central island and the kitchen is very well equipped. French doors open out onto the split level patio terrace complete with outdoor table, perfect for al fresco eating. A series of terrace lawns landscape the hill (so take care with young children on the slopes). A separate, smaller second living room/snug with a two seater sofa, at the front of the house, offers a quiet retreat for reading should you wish. One of the superb bedrooms is located downstairs across the hall from the snug.
Upstairs there are a further four bedrooms all with beautiful 'original' wooden flooring. The generous master bedroom and a second sumptuous double room both have en suite facilities. Each bedroom has been elegantly decorated and all bedrooms enjoy countryside views. Two of the bedrooms offer the option of either Twin or Superking to provide flexibility sleeping arrangements. PLEASE ADVISE OF BED CONFIGURATIONS AT TIME OF BOOKING. A high quality bathroom with tongue and groove panelling, free standing slipper bath and separate large shower serves the other bedrooms. If you find you are able to tear yourselves away from The Property, there is so much to do and see in this very popular part of Devon.
Need extra space?...The Barn is a luxury newly built renovation sleeping 2, located next to The Property. With its own parking and separate entrance, the Barn provides the perfect 'quiet' retreat away from the main house.
