Kai Tak is a spectacular three-storey property designed to maximise the striking coastal views. With incredible attention to detail, Kai Tak combines a high level of specification, creating an extremely luxurious yet comfortable house that this prime position deserves. Considered coastal lifestyle details, exceptional finishes, and well-appointed leisure facilities ensure it is the ultimate high-end beach home. The property also comes with approved planning for a one-bedroom self-contained annexe and terrace with countryside views – PA16/03948.

The house has been meticulously designed by Cassell Tarring Architects to take advantage of the magnificent views over Polzeath Beach and the Atlantic Ocean towards Pentire Head and the rolling countryside to the rear. The house is elevated above the centre of Polzeath facing Northwest with views across the popular sandy beach while the south facing side of the house looks out over beautiful rolling Cornish countryside. The plans include clever use of glass which bathes the property in natural light and the open plan nature of the layout in the living areas of the house make it a superb property for family living and entertaining. The project was awarded the ‘Best Architecture Single Residence Southwest’ and ‘Best Architecture Single Residence United Kingdom’ in the UK Property Awards 2020-2021.

Kai Tak lends itself perfectly to luxury beachside living, with a surf store, spa area, gym and TV room on the lower ground floor, all of which can be accessed from the discreet two-vehicle carport. The ground floor level contains one ensuite bedroom along with the principal reception rooms and entertaining areas including a generous open plan kitchen/dining/family room giving access onto a large south facing terrace with stunning views over the garden and surrounding countryside. The living room features a vast apex window which runs the full height of the house, providing superb views over the front patio/barbeque terrace and out to sea. A particular feature of the house is the dramatic ‘floating’ mezzanine level snug which appears suspended over the living room below and features a fireplace with an attractive stone chimney breast and 3 skylights. The full-length picture window faces due Northwest, and it is from this room that the best beach and sea views can be enjoyed, with Polzeath’s magical sunsets dipping below the horizon. The principal bedroom also faces the beach and has its own terrace, as well as an en suite bathroom and dressing area. The 2 bedrooms to the rear of the house share the family bathroom and have access to a south facing terrace, to take advantage of the far-reaching countryside views. There is a further guest bedroom with en-suite shower room. The south facing rear gardens are fully enclosed with low maintenance planting. The landscaped terraces include a built-in pizza oven and a large storage shed. There is also raised patio / barbeque terrace at the front of the house bordered by Cornish stone walling, which is perfect for watching the sunset. The property benefits from detailed planning secured in perpetuity for a two storey, 1-bedroom annexe with countryside views. 

Polzeath is a popular holiday destination and residential village in North Cornwall, with a vast expanse of sand, excellent surfing, and scenic coastal walks. Nearby, in Rock and Daymer Bay, conditions are ideal for sailing, water-skiing, and windsurfing, as well as the renowned St Enodoc Golf Club offering two excellent 18-hole courses. Polzeath has a number of good places to eat and drink, all within walking distance, including The Point Golf and Leisure Club which is a short walk inland. Locally there are also a wealth of excellent restaurants and pubs including The Mariners Pub in Rock, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and Paul Ainsworth’s No. 6 in Padstow. The ferry and water taxi in Rock make travelling to Padstow both enjoyable and easy.
