Waterstone was once a working farm, it fell into disrepair from 1948 onward until it was dis-covered in 2010 by the current owners. The property was derelict and devoid of all basic amenities and the entrance and grounds completely overgrown. It now stands as a beacon of exceptional transformation into a beautifully secluded small country estate, comprising an elegant family home, sympathetically restored to preserve the authenticity & historic fea-tures of the original house, in harmony with the other restored barns used by the owners as a private adult only retreat. The owners have spent the last 14 years developing the site.

Waterstone has an enviable, private position at the end of a long driveway, set in a rolling valley with views down to the sea at Widemouth Bay. It sits secluded, surrounded by mature and established grounds with wildlife ponds and ancient oak trees. An enclave rich in wildlife and offering total peace and tranquillity, with no near neighbours or outside noise. The house faces west down to the sea affording stunning sunsets. The owners have established a spectacular wildflower meadow on their land and the surrounding fields, owned by the Wonnacott family, from this year are also set to wildflowers.

Waterstone House is architecturally stunning with a thatched roof. The stylish, living kitchen enjoying an Esse Ironheart wood-burner and beautifully designed open plan kitchen perfect for entertaining. Detailed throughout with oak trusses, two solid oak block staircases to the second floor, oak beams and embellishments throughout, this house boasts a stunning re-ception dining hall, a cosy inviting sitting room, office and snug, all with wood burning stoves and an ensemble of beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. Off the kitchen there is a pantry, boot room and laundry perfect for the country lifestyle.

The other dwellings on the site are clustered around a pretty courtyard featuring a 300-year-old olive tree in the centre, they all offer huge opportunities, either for multiple family occu-pancy, or for rural business opportunities. The current owners run luxury holidays and adult only retreats under the business name of Posh Cornish Cottages and offer guests a 5-star breaks including spiritual, holistic, beauty and musical retreats, and for the last 10 years an annual music festival. Finished throughout to an immaculate standard this truly is a ready to go estate for any prospective purchaser and must be seen to appreciate just how beautiful it is.

Situated near the idyllic village of Marhamchurch with a village pub, village shop, church and infant school and a busy community. The vibrant coastal town of Bude is within 10 minutes' drive and serves as a gateway to a genuine Cornish experience and coastal lifestyle.
