About this property

  • This stunning 1930's family home has been lovingly renovated, extended and greatly improved by the current owner creating an exceptional and incredibly flexible home which really makes the most of its incredible position overlooking the bay. An excellent option for multigenerational living, annexe or as one beautiful home, The Outlook offers so much opportunity for a prospective purchaser. Currently used as two separate, but connected dwellings, the private sweeping drive leads to an impressive gravelled turning circle surrounding an established holly tree with parking for several cars alongside access into the single garage. There are two front doors which separate both sections of the home.

    The main house is positioned to the rear of the property and has been thoughtfully designed, extended and configured to create a fabulous, modern family home. Accessed from the parking area, the bright, open, hall offers tiled flooring throughout, internal access to the garage and an interesting courtyard which is almost completely enclosed by glass and stone to the hills behind providing a very private, calm space. The modern, glass staircase and hallway gives a contemporary feel to this period home with a curved wall and modern shower room. The hallway opens up into a light, central dining area and snug with a feature fireplace as well as utility and study. The south-facing drawing room offers nautical character in the form of two portlight windows, wooden floors and large windows taking in the uninterrupted sea views. There is a light, open plan and modern kitchen/breakfast room perfect for family life or entertaining. There is a Rangemaster, separate induction hob, two sinks, space for American style fridge/freezer and a range of sleek, modern units. The central curved island is a stylish addition incorporating an eating and entertaining space where there are French doors that open onto the private garden with outstanding views.

    The modern, staircase leads to a carefully configured first floor with three well-proportioned double bedrooms. There are two built into the eaves providing much character with skylights as well as traditional windows. One has a modern en suite shower room. The principal, south-facing bedroom has amazing sea views with pretty windows seat, bath and en suite wet room, as well as walk in wardrobe.

    The main house and annexe are connected via internal doors and could easily be reconfigured into a wonderful, single dwelling if desired. The current owner has recently had an arrangement with Unique Home Stays to let out the front annexe.

    To the front, The Outlook has been configured as a superb and former highly regarded four bedroom annex. The light, traditional hallway with solid wood floors and high ceilings leads to an impressive central hall enjoying full height ceilings to the landing and skylights flooding the area with natural light. The kitchen/sitting room is positioned to the front of the home with French doors leading out onto a raised deck taking advantage of the stunning views. The separate dining room is a delightful place for entertaining with triple windows making the most of the views and solid wood floors throughout. To the ground floor, there is also a modern bathroom and good sized double bedroom, alongside a useful utility/laundry room and WC.

    The crafted wood staircase is such a special feature to this property, giving access to study area on the landing and access to three further double bedrooms. The principal bedroom to the annexe features a wonderful window seat enjoying far-reaching views as well as modern en suite bathroom and separate shower. There are two further bedrooms, one with en suite shower room. Both are full of character and charm, built into the eaves with well-thought-out storage and skylights.

    Gardens and Grounds
    The gardens of The Outlook are something very special indeed. Wrapping the property on all sides, this gives a private, secluded feel to the property whilst still being within the heart of the village and having easy access to all amenities. There has been clever use of space with the patio and decking areas creating two, completely private sanctuaries even when the annexe is in use. Both enjoying far reaching views across the beach and Woolacombe Bay. There are tiered, lawned gardens with well stocked beds and borders as well as attractive stone walling and fabulous sunken seating area in the perfect position to enjoy the very best of the sea views.

The Outlook is simply superb, I love the mix of traditional Arts and Crafts architecture alongside the modern twist. The views are breath-taking with many hours being lost looking out over the wonderful sandy beach.
