It might look fairly unassuming, it might have the ugliest front door around, but this late 60s three-bedroom house in Widemouth Bay, near Exeter has one or two surprises behind that door.
It’s a 60s-style modernist property that’s also ‘walking distance’ from the beach, a ‘wide open sandy beach’ apparently that’s much prized by surfers, for better or worse. If that’s not enough, it isn’t far from the Victorian resort of Bude and not too far fro Exeter.
It was designed and built by a ‘well respected local architect’ for his own use, with a ground floor offering a reception hall, three bedrooms, a family bathroom, beach shower room and sun lounge, accessing a courtyard, integral garage and indoor pool room. Yes, that’s right – a swimming pool.
A staircase to the first floor takes you to a dual aspect living room, dining room, breakfast room, triple aspect kitchen and study – all laid out to take advantage of the views. Oh yes, gardens too, a detached single-storey chalet, currently being used as a billiard room, but weigh its own bathroom,m and kitchen.
Interesting, quirky and period, it’s on the market for £650,000.
