A fantastic opportunity to acquire a stunning detached residence enjoying breathtaking views across the bay towards Exmoor National Park.

The property could suit a variety of purposes, and the ground floor bedroom suite could easily house a dependent relative. All principal rooms enjoy the fabulous views of both coast and country and would create a fabulous lifestyle with an outdoor covered dining area, rooftop terrace, natural amphitheatre and various seating areas from which to follow the sun or enjoy different vistas.
