Tenure: Leasehold

Apartment 1 Holmesdale is a beautifully presented ground floor apartment situated in an enviable location just yards from the award winning golden sand surfing beaches and being just a stones throw from the village amenities. The property enjoys outstanding and uninterrupted views over Woolacombe Bay taking in Potters Hill and the surrounding countryside, the golden sand surfing beaches, Baggy & Hartland Points, Lundy Island and the Atlantic Ocean. The apartment has the considerable benefit of its own large sea facing decked terrace and communal gardens at the rear and has full residential occupation with holiday letting also permitted.

Woolacombe sits on the North Devon Coast and is famous throughout the country and is popular with visitors from all around the U.K. There are a variety of small shops, bars, restaurants and cafes to suit all pockets as well as other leisure facilities. The village has an excellent OFSTED primary school as well as a chemist, health centre and post office. The two and a half miles of award winning golden sand surfing beaches are Woolacombe's primary attraction, however, the village is surrounded by open National Trust Land which enjoys miles and miles of walking along meandering footpaths offering some breath-taking coastal scenery along the rugged North Devon coastline. For keen golfers, Saunton Sands Professional Golf Course is just a short drive away and has 2 Links courses and there are further smaller courses within Woolacombe at Easewell and nearby Willingcott. Barnstaple, which is North Devon's main trading centre, is approximately 14 miles away and has many of the big name shops, a rail link and direct access onto the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27.

The apartment is accessed through the main communal hallway at the side of the building with number 1 being located on the ground floor level. There is an entrance lobby which in turn leads through to a spacious hallway which has all rooms leading off and a useful store cupboard. The heart of the home is the main 32ft living room and kitchen which enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and outstanding views to a wide vista over the village taking in Potters Hill, Baggy & Hartland Points, the golden sand surfing beaches, Lundy Island and the Atlantic Ocean. The room comprises a lounge area with sliding doors onto the terrace and a dining area, as well as a high specification fitted kitchen which includes a variety of integrated appliances including an oven, 4 ring gas hob and stainless steel and glass extractor, fridge & freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.

The master bedroom is located to the other end of the apartment and enjoys the excellent sea and coastal views through floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors and has its own dressing room and en suite shower room/wc which comprises a modern white suite including a shower cubicle, handbasin with vanity unit over and a low level wc. Next door to the master bedroom is the second bedroom measuring 17' x 14' and again enjoying the open outlook. Located at the rear of the apartment is a third double bedroom with en suite and own access out to the side of the building where there is useful store area so could be ideal for a "room only" let if so desired. The family bathroom completes the accomodation and comprises a modern white suite with a panelled bath, low level w.c. and handbasin set into a base unit.

The terrace enjoys a great deal of sunshine and is enclosed by a glazed ballustrade being south facing having ample room for outside entertaining. At the front there is private parking whilst to the rear of the building located up a set of steep steps there is a small communal garden.

This delightful apartment can only be fully appreciated by an early internal inspection and is considered ideal as either a permanent residence, a quality second home or alternatively could be used as a holiday let deriving a good income.

The property is leasehold with the balance of an original 999 year lease which commenced on the 1st January 2005. The freeholders own one of the apartments within the building. The service charge, which includes the ground rent, cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas and the building insurance is currently approximately £1,000 per annum. It is the freeholders current policy that pets are not allowed within the building.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction along the High Street heading out of town on the main A361 sign posted Barnstaple. At the Mullacott Cross roundabout take the right hand exit sign posted Woolacombe and Mortehoe and continue along this road for approximately 4 miles into the village of Woolacombe. Upon entering the village proceed down the hill to the village centre. Just after the Narracott Hotel and the turning to Sandy Lane bear off to the right into Bay View Road which runs immediately behind the Esplanade. Continue along Bay View road for approximately 200 yards where Holmesdale will be found on the right hand side.
