The enviable location of this sleek interior-designed duplex maisonette provides the perfect backdrop for a spot of rest and relaxation. Kick back and while away the hours just gazing out over the golf course to the Firth of Forth and the stunning sandy bay of Broad Sands beyond - just a hop, skip and a jump from this luxury coastal retreat. With its designer interiors drawing inspiration from a cool American East Coast vibe, this is a sensational seaside hideaway which oozes coastal chic from every pore.
There's a grown up, stylish seaside theme to the interior design of this stunning 4 bedroom coastal retreat set in the grand Victorian mansion of what was once the summer home of Colonel Astor prior to World War I. The Views has been transformed into a coastal hideaway for the seriously discerning holidaymaker. From its Ralph Lauren striped wallpaper to its sleek cream tiled bathrooms this is a haven that can't fail to appeal to the senses on every single level. But despite its sleek interiors, this is also a home for laid back luxury, inviting you to kick back and put your feet up after a long brisk walk on the beach or 18 holes on the golf course on your doorstep.
The Views pays dividend to its namesake at every level. Spread across two floors almost every room in this duplex apartment boasts sensational panoramic sea views that literally take your breath away. Combine this with the fact that this stylish pad is choc full of sleek modern amenities and you have a perfect balance of chic coastal living that is worth writing home about....if you can bear to share the secret!
The front entrance of The Views is unadulterated “Beach Chic”. Bold red and white striped Ralph Laurent wallpaper adorns the walls of the striking hallway, creating a dramatic “beach towel and deckchair” statement for the coastal theme which continues throughout the property.
The living areas are deliberately located at the front of the home to make the most of the incredible sea views. The red and white theme continues into the lounge area where an expansive wall of glass and a perfectly located candy-striped window seat provide the perfect picture window to gaze out to sea. Stoke up the real fire, light the candles, sink back into one of the sumptuous white sofas, pour yourself a glass of wine and delight in the fact that time can stand still for a moment. After all, that's what holidays are all about!
BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS
The 4 bedrooms spread over two floors are connected by a solid oak spiral staircase to a huge master suite on the top floor. Studded downlighters in the wall continue the nautical theme reminiscent of a lighthouse. With the Master Suite's dual aspect views to the sea to the front and gardens to the rear, this light and spacious king-size room is a hideaway's delight. Escape with a good book and relax on the sofa or sink into the sleek freestanding bath with a cool glass of champagne. The ensuite bathroom is the epitome of sleek and chic with its multi jet shower and Scottish Fine Soaps toiletries.
On the lower floor are three other double bedrooms. The front facing twin has panoramic sea views from its 6-windowed bay and with its cool hues of creams and reds it's clean, fresh and calming. The main bathroom is located just across the corridor and with its marble effect cream tiles, bath and separate rainfall shower it is as decadent as any designer hotel bathroom.
The remaining two double bedrooms are both ensuite, one faces onto the back garden and is all fawns and creams with an ensuite with rainfall shower and a stylish stone curved pebble wall and cream marble effect tiling. The blue room is to the side of the property and has side views over the golf course to the sea and a beautiful large en-suite shower room with double rainshower. This is a Victorian house and there are differing floor levels at this end of the apartment so you need to be a little careful of your step.
You will be hard-picked to choose your room at The Views, as every room is as luxurious as the next and each has something slightly different to offer. But the high threadcount OKA designer bedlinens and Scottish Fine Soaps toiletries are consistent throughout. Maybe you'll have to toss a coin to decide who goes where!
KITCHEN AND DINING AREA
The open plan kitchen-diner is a wow and makes a dramatic statement of contemporary designer living! Packed with every modern convenience this is an entertaining space extraordinaire! The 8-seater dining table is ideally located to benefit from the wall length expanse of windows and again.....that view to die for. The coastal theme continues with stunning grey granite worktops, red splashbacks and cream wooden units. This kitchen is style personified. An iPod docking station, double range oven with griddle, smoothie maker, wine fridge, American style fridge freezer with ice and water dispenser.....what more could you need? Oh yes, a private chef, but that can be provided too!
The Views is set in expansive communal gardens both front and back. Sloping lawns with beautifully maintained bedding plants frame the vista to the front of the property out over the golf course and to the coast beyond. There is a BBQ and table on the front lawn and if that's not enough, the “piece de resistance” is easy beach access via a private gate over the 6th fairway of the golf course and onto the golden sands of the mile long Broad Sands Bay beyond. You'll understand why the Scots coined the phrase “Fore” to warn folk of errant golf shots!
