CROYDE KERNOW HOUSE OVERVIEW
KERNOW HOUSE is a spacious, modern, 3 bedroom detached family home with Hot Tub and some charming features. Decorated and furnished to a high standard, KERNOW HOUSE is situated at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac. It enjoys a prime location in an elevated position being only a few minutes walk from the golden sands of the Blue Flag accredited Croyde beach and a short walk from the pubs, restaurants and shops of this 'chocolate box' archetypal English village. KERNOW HOUSE offers reverse living in order to take advantage of its elevated position. The views afforded from the first floor windows are some of the best in Croyde, looking out over the rooftops to the sea beyond. Outside there is parking available for 2 cars.
The staircase leading to the first floor is well lit with light coming through two windows. The good sized double-aspect lounge provides guests with a vista over the rooftops of Croyde to the sea beyond. Your eye is drawn to the feature marble fireplace surround whilst the warm wood-effect laminate floor tones well with the comfortable chocolate brown sofa and separate cream furnishings that invite relaxation. The opposing walls are coloured with a very effective contrast of creams and light browns which enables the room to flow seamlessly from a relaxing social space to a functional dining area that provides guests with a view over the rear garden to the meadow and rolling hills beyond. A flat screen TV, Sky (basic package) plus an X-Box are supplied for guests enjoyment.
Once again, the wood effect laminate flooring tones very well with the warm wood of the modern kitchen units. Brushed nickel door handles, slate grey wall tiles, a co-ordinating laminate work surface and halogen down lights all work together to create a very attractive room. As you would expect, there is an integrated fridge and freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, a halogen 4-ring hob plus a single oven/grill set into a tall housing unit. There really is plenty of work surface and storage space in this kitchen. The window above the sink overlooks the decking and meadow beyond the back garden.
There are 3 bedrooms located on the ground floor accessed from the entrance hallway. The cherry wood-effect laminate flooring lends a warm feel and compliments the natural wood doors and banister. The under-stairs cupboard houses the vacuum cleaner, ironing board, high chair and stair gate and also provides useful additional storage space.
Bedroom 1; has views out to the front and is the master bedroom with en-suite. There is a large queen-size double bed. As this room benefits from a built in wardrobe along with two 3-drawer chest of drawers, there is ample storage space. Wood venetian blinds ensure privacy from the outside, whilst cream walls and co ordinating bed linen create a tranquil haven within. A radio with DVD player and a wall-mounted full-length dressing mirror complete the facilities.
Bedroom 2; contains a pine framed double bed that is shouldered on both sides with bedside tables. Pastel blue walls tone well with the bed linen and the large patio doors flood the room with light and provide guests with a view of the rear garden as well as access to the hot tub. A tall slimline 5 drawer chest of drawers provide storage space and a base for the cream framed mirror.
Bedroom 3; Contains pine bunk beds and is an ideal children's room. There is plenty of floor space to accommodate a travel cot.
Master bedroom en-suite has a slate grey tiled floor with a white porcelain suite, comprising pedestal wash basin with a single polished chrome mixer tap, plus a good sized mirrored bathroom cabinet above, low level WC, tiled shower cubicle with glass door and partition containing a power shower, there is also a polished chrome heated towel rail.

A long, wall mounted, polished chrome towel rail plus free standing wooden towel rail provides plenty of hanging space.
The first floor WC is conveniently situated at the top of the stairs and has its own small hand basin.
The garden and first floor decked area is not overlooked and therefore provides a very private outdoor space. The decking can be accessed from the kitchen or via some wooden steps from the garden and provides a great platform to dine al-fresco or just enjoy refreshment in the summer sun. There is a hot tub located at ground floor level under the decking, a quaint raised lawn area as well as a paved area with a chimnea barbeque.

The West Country region
North Devon is one of the most beautiful areas of the British Isles. It boasts miles of unspoilt and award winning beaches. The coastline is one of the most popular surfing venues in the country, with Croyde being the most popular.
The coastline is as rugged as it is beautiful dotted with magnificent cliffs, tiny cove and picturesque harbours. It was once the haunt of smugglers, pirates and wreckers and the fascinating history is retold in many small museums along the coast. Today visitors who love Henry Williamson's famous Tarka the Otter can retrace Tarka's journey by following the Tarka Trail.
Along the coastline surrounding a natural harbour is Ilfracombe with its Victorian architecture, Esplanade and famous Tunnels Beach. The harbour is always busy with fishing boats sailing in and out together with the paddle steamer Balmoral which offers day trips to Lundy Island. North Devon has something to offer and appeal to everyone.
There are activities available for all ages. For children there are fun attractions such as 'The Big Sheep' and 'Dinosaur World'. For the sports fan, there is golf, horse riding, cycling, surfing, kayaking, rock climbing and many other activities all within a 40 minute drive from Barnstaple, the region's major town.
