Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

Enjoying a stunning location upon the cliffs overlooking Summerleaze beach this fine historic building is a true hidden gem, having the most superb views yet within easy reach of the towns' beaches, shops and facilities.

As you proceed up the private drive, through the woodland, Efford Down House rises prominently in front of you, with its individual and characterful front elevation providing a great first impression to the surroundings, with ample off-road parking for owners and visitors alike.

Built in 1848 for the well-known Acland family of Bude, this fabulous manor house has been converted to provide dramatic apartments with high ceilings, and an abundance of original features with stunning sea and beach views from the rear elevation.

Access is gained via a secure video and phone entry system, with a wide communal staircase leading to the first floor. Upon entering the apartment the main reception room is a generous size and boasts an impressive fireplace providing a lovely focal point to what is a large social room, with the main feature being the bay window, from which you can enjoy the fabulous views over the gardens to the beach and sea beyond.

The kitchen is fitted with a wide range of wall and base units with built-in appliances and has an internal hatch so you can see the view whilst busy in the kitchen! There are two double bedrooms, one features built-in wardrobes, a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom/WC, whilst the other double bedroom has a wide range of matching furniture included in the sale. The windows are UPVC double glazed and an early internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the size and character of the accommodation.

The view is amazing, Summerleaze beach with the tide out allows you to see the miles of sand stretching out along the coast, with the Bude sea pool and cliffs providing interest, and on a clear day you can see Lundy Island in the distance. When the tide is in and there is stormy weather, you can sit and see the breakers crashing against the cliffs.

The Falcon Hotel, The Brendon Arms, the Crescent post office and stores and the rejuvenated canal area are all within a five minute walk from the property. The town centre facilities including banks, shops and independent businesses, is just slightly further away. The position is extremely private, with only residents having access to the property which maintains the peaceful and tranquil location and combined with the fact that the property backs onto National Trust land, the view and the position are very well protected indeed.

There is direct access from the gardens to the North Cornish coastal path which leads down to Summerleaze beach, or if you wanted a longer walk, to Widemouth Bay to the south. The gardens and grounds are very well maintained and are measure some 2 acres in total. The manicured lawns and mature trees are carefully managed, the pool and patio area enjoy the best of the views and are ideal for alfresco barbecues and the building has its own woodland.

A viewing is a must to fully appreciate the gardens, grounds and position of this particular apartment and to enjoy the best of those stunning views.
