Substantial waterfront property enjoying superb sea views and direct beach access.
History & Description
Waterwynch House enjoys an interesting history. In the late 1810s, the artist Charles Norris was given a lease on very favourable terms over a plot of land by the Burgess of Tenby, in recognition of his work in promoting the town. It was a condition of the lease that he had to build a house costing no less than £200 within 2 years and in 1820 Waterwynch House was built. In 1920 Waterwynch House became the residence of Lord and Lady Risdale into whose family Sir Stanley Baldwin was married and who spent many holidays here. Waterwynch House was converted into a hotel during the 1980s and was substantially restored to its former residential glory by the previous owners. This restoration and renovation has been continued by the current owners.
Accessed down a quiet country lane, shaded by woodland, the private gated entrance provides an opening vista to the beautifully tended formal gardens of the valley in which Waterwynch House sits. With its wooded flanks elevating gently above it, glimpses of the sandy beach and blue water tantalise from behind the house. Throughout the very extensive accommodation, great care has been taken to use materials of the highest quality, many with nautical influences to reflect the property's marine and beachside location.
Due to the contour of the site, the accommodation is laid out over three floors with each of the principal rooms arranged to take advantage of the sea views. In addition to the generous living accommodation, the scale of the house has allowed an entertainments side currently boasting a billiard room and games room with bar. On the opposite side of the house, a suite of rooms incorporates a gym and offices which, with access available away from the main house, can suit receiving business visitors. There are eleven bedrooms each served by its own designated bath/shower room, arranged over the first and second floors.
The property is set in about 26 acres (stms subject to measured survey) including landscaped grounds and gardens, woodland, some pasture, and cliff land leading down to the sea. Waterwynch enjoys private access onto a delightful sandy beach (part of which is owned by the property) and includes its own slipway.
The property has been used as a private home and second home but over recent years has been successfully used as a luxury self-contained holiday retreat for large groups. The property also has a wedding licence.
The property is being offered for sale as a going concern. All future bookings will be guaranteed.
