Southover Apartments is situated in a very popular location enjoying views over the village to the beach and sea and just a short walk from the beach and village amenities. The building was converted into 5 apartments in 2002 and this apartment has proved popular as a holiday rental, although it could be utilised as a permanent residence.
The apartment is accessed from an attractive garden to the rear of the property and is arranged over two floors making the most of the lovely sea views.
From the decked terrace, the entrance hallway leads to a double room with french doors opening onto the terrace, a family shower room is also located on this floor. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room offers a well fitted kitchen/dining area with ample storage. This area opens into an attractive sitting room with 2 dormer windows with views over the village and dunes to the sea. A short flight of stairs lead up to a twin bedroom with velux windows. There is some limited headroom to this room.
From the hallway, stairs lead to a further double and twin on this top floor. The double bedroom enjoys sea views and accesses a 'jack & jill' bathroom which can be shared with the twin bedroom if required.
Outside There are two dedicated parking spaces to the front of the property with steps leading from the parking area along the side of the building and to the rear of the property. The entrance to Apartment 2 can be found through the delightful garden and via the decked terrace. The planting of palm trees within the garden area gives a wonderful 'holiday' feel.
NB: One of the standout features of this apartment is its potential for expansion. With current planning permission in place from the original renovations (planning application 32791), there is a great opportunity to replace the two dormer windows in the sitting room with bifold doors which would lead out onto a balcony. This would allow you to fully immerse yourself in the beautiful sea views over the beach and bay.
The property is available with a new 999 year lease with an annual Ground Rent payable of £50 pa. The maintenance charge for the property which includes building insurance is £1270 pa.
Location The North Devon coastline was designated a World Surfing Reserve last year and will join California's Malibu and Santa Cruise and Australia's Golden Coast and Manly as some the world's best locations to go surfing. The award-winning Woolacombe Beach is widely recognised as one of the best beaches in the UK. Located on the North Devon coast, between Croyde and Ilfracombe, the 3-mile sandy beach is popular with surfers and families looking for a traditional seaside experience.
One visit here and you can easily see why. Not just because of its beautiful coastline and being a surfers paradise but also its easy access to the wonderful National Trust land, with coastal walks and the other surfing beaches of Putsborough (at the other end of Woolacombe’s surfing beach), Croyde and Saunton all within easy reach.
There is an interesting choice of shops, bars and restaurants in the village. Woolacombe is ideally positioned for investigating the surrounding coast and countryside – from the wild splendour of Exmoor to the natural wonders of Lundy Island, or the charm of the nearby villages of Mortehoe and Croyde.
There are many golf courses nearby for keen golfers, a 9m hole course at Mortehoe, 18 holes at Ilfracombe and the more expierienced might like to take on the more challenging championship links courses at Saunton which is just twenty minutes away by car.
The regional centre of Barnstaple offers top high street names and independent stores/boutiques. There is also a leisure centre and indoor tennis centres, a branch line railway station and regional hospital. The A361 gives access to the M5 at Tiverton.
