Perched overlooking one of Devon’s most charming coves, this home, designed for an existing client, avoids all the traditional beach house clichés. At the heart of this property, a generously sized kitchen sets the tone of the home. Laidback, resolutely un-stiff and wonderfully comfortable all year round, tongue and groove timber flooring, patterned tiles and yielding sofas come together to create a space designed for lounging and family time. Deep bathtubs, seemingly endless bedrooms and light-bathed entertaining spaces serve to bring back memories of the client’s childhood and summers spent along this beautiful coastline. Providing the perfect base for the family’s love of sailing, it’s the sense of uncomplicated ease and perennial relaxation that makes it a true haven.
