Sitting at the bottom of Tregonhawke Cliff on the beautiful expanse of Whitsand Bay, considered one of the best surfing beaches in South Cornwall, Eddystone Beach Cafe, surf school and accommodation are perfectly situated for a beachside lifestyle.
The house which is mainly built of stone and block construction with some timber cladding currently comprises; the cafe, a three bedroom maisonette, a one bedroom ground floor apartment and a two bedroom first floor apartment all of which are in good order throughout. The character of the building has been beautifully retained and the location emphasised with a huge decking area and balcony overlooking the sea.
The owner’s accommodation has three bedrooms, one reception room with wood burner, a fully fitted kitchen, shower room and family bathroom. There are two letting apartments both with spectacular sea views; a one bed ground floor apartment with a living room, fitted kitchen, large shower room and outside a private patio area on the beachside. The first floor apartment has two bedrooms, a large living area, kitchen with breakfast bar and a large shower room. It has an engineered oak floor and double glazed windows and is beautifully presented throughout.
