    About this property

    • Blue Waters was built in the interwar years when Polzeath underwent a wave of development as holiday bungalows began to appear along the Highcliff between the village and Greenaway. This property occupies a large plot, sloping gently towards the cliff, with a good view of the bay across to Pentire Head to the north and to Stepper Point across the estuary to the west. Blue Waters is set on a private road with walking access onto the coastal path.

      Blue Waters was bought by the current vendors' family in the 1970s when it was extended by creating bedrooms in the dormer roof, and in more recent years a conservatory and a large utility room have been added.

      At the front of the house is a slate paved terrace and steps up to the front door, into a porch and then a hall, with the dining / living room to the left. This room has a stunning view of the beach, across the bay to Pentire Head and the ocean beyond. The dining area is wide enough to accommodate a large family sized table. There is an open fireplace, still used. Double glazed windows replace the originals, but elsewhere in the room and throughout the house, there are original period features that evidence a style of seaside architecture that is disappearing along this coast.

      Across the hall is a spacious double bedroom with a wide bay window and the magnificent seaward view. From here a door opens to the conservatory, which accesses the front terrace via patio doors, and also the rear south and west facing courtyard – a suntrap in the summer.

      The next bedroom, currently a twin room, overlooks the sunny courtyard and has a wash basin. At the end of the hall is the third ground floor bedroom, a single, also overlooking the west facing side of the house.

      Adjacent is a wc, separate from and next to the family bathroom. The kitchen has fitted cupboards and units with modern appliances and is tiled, but the main feature is the view of the beach from the picture window beyond the kitchen table. Finally comes the utility/laundry room incorporating a large larder cupboard. Doors at either end of this room open onto the rear courtyard and fenced perimeter of the grounds, and to the side garden, where there is an outside wc and a cellar of restricted height, which has electricity and ample storage space.

      Upstairs are two bedrooms: the first has three beds and the best view from the dormer window, of Stepper Point. A door accesses the loft and extensive space under the eaves. The final bedroom is the largest and is naturally well lit by a Velux panel and a dormer window to the front with the magnificent views. There is also a shower room on this floor.

      The entrance from the parking bay is through the large front garden which is lawned and fenced on each side and at the rear, where the courtyard is slate paved and sheltered by mature shrubs. The terrace along the front is an original feature and it is easy to imagine it being the scene of happy relaxation in the holiday atmosphere of Polzeath.

    Local information

    • Beloved by generations of residents and visitors, Polzeath is one of Britain's foremost beach holiday destinations: many would say the best! This results from the combination of a beautiful sandy beach, laid back beach village feel and ideal conditions for learning to surf. The beach itself is enormous at low tide, extending around half a mile in all directions.
    • For swimming, Polzeath is one of the safest beaches along this stretch of coast with its gently shelving sand and seasonal lifeguard cover. Stepper Point stands sentinel at the far side of the estuary and Pentire Head protects the bay to the north. The southwest coast path passes directly through Polzeath and the headland, managed by the National Trust, provides stunning walking routes open to magnificent ocean and coastal views.
    • Surf shops, cafés and restaurants, a supermarket, a boutique and art gallery make up the commercial centre of the village. Across the beach is the very popular Atlantic Bar and Kitchen where the terrace fills in the summer evening sun. On the opposite cliff and a short walk from Blue Waters is the Oyster Catcher, also a favourite venue with a great view across the beach.
