Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Granville Point is a landmark detached building originally opened as a temperance Hotel in 1891. Its imposing architecture designed on the principal of a French Chateau dominates the sea front sky line and commands uninterrupted views of having a unique 360 degree aspect. The property is located within the Conservation Area of Ilfracombe.

Probably situated in one of the most commanding coastal locations along the North Devon Coastline and benefiting from tireless views of the sea, town and countryside, Granville Point boasts 14 luxury apartments, each individually designed and beautifully appointed. Design considerations were not compromised, thousands of hours were invested in meticulously considering detail, to ensure the restoration represents a faithful upgrade of this important building.

The building is accessed via a communal entrance lobby with stairs and a passenger lift to all floors making access to the apartment easy for elderly or disabled persons. Apartment 13 is stylish, offering contemporary modern living and facilities and bright and airy accommodation of approximately 79.75 m2 (858 ft2).

The apartment comprises an entrance hall which has a video door entry system and intercom. The heart of the home is the superb living room and kitchen area. On entering the room the wonderful views are immediately apparent with the double width glazed sliding patio doors that lead to the balcony terrace framing the uninterrupted sea and coastal panorama. The kitchen area has stylish and modern fitted base and wall units complimented by granite work surfaces and integrated appliances which include a Neff halogen hob with extractor canopy over, Neff oven and microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There is a wine rack and pull out shelved larder style unit. Within the kitchen area there is a cupboard which houses a "Modusat 150" hot water tank. Heating runs from a gas fired boiler in the basement serving all 14 apartments, each apartment being individually billed by energy consumption.

Moving along the hall way, the master bedroom has a delightful twin aspect with views directly over the sea and rugged coastline as well as inland over the town towards the Torrs. The outlook can be enjoyed whilst lying in bed! Sliding doors lead out on to a further sea facing balcony terrace. There is an en suite shower room/wc which has modern fitted sanitary ware and cupboards. The second bedroom also enjoys the panoramic sea and coastal views and has a 'Juliet' style balcony.

There is a family bathroom which again is fitted with modern sanitary ware and cupboards and a separate and useful utility room which has fitted cupboards and plumbing for an automatic washing machine/dryer.

The apartment benefits from gas fired underfloor central heating and has double glazed windows and doors.

Floor coverings throughout the property are fitted ready for immediate occupation and the furniture and equipment within the apartment is available to purchase by separate negotiation if required.

Outside, the apartment has two good sized sea facing balcony terraces, one off of the lounge and the other off of the master bedroom. On the western side of the building is a large secure communal car park which is approached via a remote controlled electrically operated gate and provides an allocated parking space for the apartment. There is a communal bin store and in the basement area of the building there is a lockable storeroom specifically for apartment 13.

We fully advise an early internal inspection of the large high quality apartment which is considered ideal as both a permanent or second home. There is also excellent holiday letting potential.
