Property DetailsRef: WHITE
With the most breathtaking panoramic sea views, this elegant period home boasts an enviable and quite unique location. Sitting on a private lane just a stones throw from the edge of the coast, the stunning vista stretches out beyond Croyde Bay to Hartland Point and across to Baggy Point with Lundy Island on the far horizon. Imagine waking to the sounds of the sea and taking an early morning, five to ten minute stroll, to the beautiful sandy beach to catch the surf, or just relaxing in the balmy summer evenings whilst enjoying the most spectacular sunsets, absolutely wonderful! With tremendous character and furnished with flair, the warm and welcoming atmosphere is ideal for groups of friends and families and the generous proportions ensure there is plenty of space for everyone. All of the rooms evoke the feeling of an eclectic mix of design direct from the pages of a home style magazine, making this lovely semi detached property something rather special. With stripped pine floors and attractive fireplace with wood burning stove, the living room boasts a huge bay window providing a constant backdrop of ocean views and having a comfy deep recessed window seat. Just across the hall a smaller snug sitting room/study is a perfect spot for reading books, newspapers or playing board games. The sizeable dining room has double doors opening into the pretty bespoke style kitchen where ceramic tiled floors and beech worktops complement this fabulous family area which then flows seamlessly through to a sunny breakfast room. A grand staircase winds up to five gorgeous bedrooms with stylish linen and soft furnishings. The huge master bedroom has its own ensuite shower room and together with the second sumptuous double room enjoys amazing panoramic sea views. Two twin rooms and a bunk room complete the accommodation together with a stylish separate family bathroom with large walk in shower area and freestanding roll top bath and a separate cloakroom with WC and basin. The rear garden, backed by National Trust Land is tiered with several steps between expanses of lawn and is enclosed by a low picket fence. You may need to take care with toddlers but older children will appreciate the climbing frame and slide, while the adults just relax and take in those spectacular sea views. After a busy day on the beach or out exploring this wonderful area what could be better than relaxing in the indoor hot tub, a luxurious bonus to this splendid holiday retreat. Far enough from the bustling village centre to be peaceful and relaxing yet just a short walk away from the beach and cafe culture, the White House really does tick all the boxes for a fantastic holiday. Please note, if you are a larger family party of up to 14, there are also 2 trundle beds in one of the twin rooms and a double sofa bed in the study that may be available for use by children only, on request. Please ring the office prior to booking for more information.
