Granville Point is a landmark detached building originally opened as a temperance Hotel in 1891. Its imposing architecture designed on the principal of a French Chateau dominates the sea front sky line and commands uninterrupted views having a unique 360 degree aspect. The property is located within the Conservation Area of Ilfracombe.

The building is situated in one of the most commanding coastal locations within the town and lies close to the town centre and sea front and the popular and picturesque Torrs walk which enjoys some spectacular coastal scenery. The bustling sea front has many good quality restaurants and bars and there are various cafes and small independent shops all of which are within easy reach of the apartment. World renowned artist, Damien Hirst's influence within the town has been significant in recent years and there are now many art galleries within the immediate area. The Landmark Theatre is located very close by and is a fantastic facility with a large variety of shows, live music and festivals. Wildersmouth Beach is also within a short stroll as is the famous Tunnels Beaches with its sea water pool. There are further golden sand surfing beaches at nearby Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton and an array of quality golf courses to choose from including the 2 links courses at Saunton, one of which offers a Championship standard.

Granville Point is arguably the premier apartment block within the town. There are 14 units in total together with a large electrically operated gated car park. The outstanding views offer an ever changing panorama across the town of Ilfracombe taking in the Torrs and Cairn to the west, stretching across the Bristol Channel towards the distant Welsh Coastline on a clear day and over Capstone and on to the harbour and Hillsborough and along the rugged coastline to the east. The building has an attractive dressed stone facade with 'turret features' and number 7 is one of the largest units within the building having impressive accommodation of over 1,700ft2 arranged over two floors.

The building is accessed via a communal entrance lobby. There is the considerable benefit of a passenger lift to all floors meaning there is pretty much step free access from the communal car park. The home is stylish and offers contemporary modern living and facilities and two large sea facing balconies.

There is the immediate feeling of space upon entering the apartment into the spacious hallway. The video intercom allows direct contact with main front door with the ability to see the caller and to unlock the door. There is a handy store cupboard and a further cupboard which houses the Modusat hot water tank. There are glazed double doors that lead into the main living room as well as access to a very useful utility room and separate toilet. The stairs also lead down to the lower level where the 4 bedrooms and the family bathroom sit.

The heart of the home is the superb 30ft long living room and kitchen area which is a very spacious bright and airy light filled room and perfect for modern day family living and entertaining. There is plenty of space for large sofas and living room furniture as well a family sized dining table and chairs. Within the lounge area, there are full height glazed sliding doors which open on to a large balcony and enjoy the fabulous and uninterrupted views directly across the Bristol Channel taking in Capstone and the rugged coastline with a far reaching vista towards the Welsh coast on a clear day in the distance. There are other large sea facing windows within the room and a small recessed sitting area which is a perfect vantage point for the sea and coastal views. There are further glazed sliding doors in the kitchen area, again leading out onto a second balcony with similar and extensive sea and coastal views. The kitchen has a striking contemporary design with an excellent range of high gloss fitted base and wall units together with granite work surfaces and complemented by integrated appliances which include a hob with extractor canopy over, an oven, microwave, dishwasher and an American style fridge/freezer.

Moving down to the lower level, the landing has all four bedrooms and the family bathroom leading off. All four bedrooms are generously sized and enjoy views over the Bristol Channel and towards the distant Welsh coast. Bedrooms 1 and 2 both have their own beautifully appointed en suite shower rooms which are fitted with a range of quality sanitary ware and furniture and include a walk-in shower cubicle, a low level wc with a concealed cistern and a hand basin with shaver socket over, all complimented by modern tiling. The family bathroom has similar fittings and tiling and has a bath with a shower over.

The two balconies for the apartment are a particularly attractive feature of the property enjoying panoramic uninterrupted views over the sea and rugged coastline. There is plenty of room for outdoor furniture including a table and chairs for al-fresco dining and sun loungers for sun bathing. There is outside lighting and power points.

Other benefits in the apartment include efficient under floor gas-fired central heating fired by a communal boiler but with individual control. There are double glazed windows and doors. The furniture, fittings and equipment are available to purchase by separate negotiation if required and floor coverings are included throughout ready for immediate occupation.

Adjacent to the building there is a large secure communal car park which is approached via a remote controlled electrically operated gate and provides 2 allocated parking spaces for the apartment. There is a communal bin store and in the basement area of the building there is a large lockable storeroom specifically for Apartment 7 and which is ideal for larger equipment.
