Your views? Sun sparkling on the endless blue ocean below you.
Your soundtrack? The gentle ebb of the surf.
Your spot? Your hot tub, garden lounger, secret snug, private terrace…
Welcome to the ultimate location.
As you draw up outside the elegant white façade you already know this is going to be something special. And then you catch sight of the views for your holiday and your breath is simply taken away. The vast ocean that sparkles oh-so blue in this part of Cornwall sits right below you and stretches as far as your eye can see from your living spaces, bedroom and lawns.
You’ll be enjoying the ocean views from both inside and out. Take a moment to step outside and feast your eyes on the hot tub, positioned perfectly for ocean viewing while you lie back in peaceful bubbles with a little something. Relax too on the loungers, also strategically placed to get the best sea vistas. Or take your spot at the alfresco dining table. And then there are the lawns, also with ocean views and a great big space for the kids and dogs (up to 3 allowed) in your party. All due south so perfect for those sunrises and sunsets that Cornwall does so very well.
Back inside, elegance comes into its own with, of course, the sea sparkling as the bluest backdrop. The living-dining space opens right out onto the terrace and those views. Plush leather sofas surround a wood-burning stove for cosy warmth on chillier evenings. Brilliant blue alcoves and the odd turquoise accent bring the sea inside and remind you of those views. The ocean takes the front seat in three of the five bedrooms too. Bag one of the two sharing the private terrace with panoramic vistas in peace and quiet.
No cooking is a chore in the simply sumptuous kitchen. Sleek white cabinets house integrated appliances and a Belfast sink, and provide the perfect contrast to the terracotta tiles. Yes, that is a working Aga and if you love to cook with a view, conjure a little something on the barbecue.
And on your doorstep, Downderry beach with that ocean lapping the shores and perfect for kayaking and snorkelling. At low tide, walk the sands to Seaton, one of Cornwall’s most desirable seaside villages. Or take a long stroll along the South West Coast Path before you head home for a spell in your hot tub and yet more of your views.
