This stunning four bedroom individually designed & energy efficient detached modern home

Nestled in a quite stunning elevated position high above the beach and cliffs of Crackington Haven in an area of outstanding natural beauty sits Gwel Uhel, a stunning, individually designed highly efficient and exceptionally well built four double bedroom family home. The natural beauty of this picturesque area is enhanced by a backdrop of valleys and cliffs beyond within just a mile of the beautiful surfing beach and the famed National Trust coastal walks.

Built by the current vendors to exacting standards in 2014 and standing detached and conveniently placed, this contemporary property is light, bright and immaculately presented whilst being an extremely energy efficient highly insulated modern home. No expense has been spared in this fabulous abode, with a chic décor, quality fixtures and fittings, stylish bathrooms, oak beams adorning the ceiling and solid oak flooring underfoot with underfloor heating throughout. The main feature of Gwel Uhel is the green oak frame that creates immense charm, character and a calming ambience within the main living space while sea views are enjoyed at their best from the large terrace at the rear and from a side window of the sitting room and the south facing landscaped gardens.

A slate covered storm porch with brick pavers leads up to the main entrance door. This stunning entrance provides an impressive welcome with double height vaulted ceilings and views straight through to the sitting room with feature fully glazed gable elevation enjoying views over the adjoining fields and farmlands. The entrance hall naturally leads into the open plan living/dining room and an oak and glass staircase descends down to the lower ground floor. The L shaped living/dining room is a most impressive space within this stunning individual home, where the full effect of the green oak frame can be appreciated. This light and spacious reception room has vaulted ceilings with feature glazed elevations enjoying views over the adjoining fields and farmland and a further window to the side elevation enjoying the sea views further down the valley. Large double glazed bi-folding doors open out from both the living and dining area onto the raised deck with further windows to either side. Solid oak flooring continues throughout with underfloor heating and a contemporary wood burner recessed into the chimney with tiled hearth. Oak veneer doors serve the cloakroom, with full wall and floor travertine natural stone tiles, and the kitchen/breakfast room. An open tread staircase ascends up to a galleried study which offers a fantastic work space with glazed and oak balustrading overlooking the main living space and feature glazed windows to the side elevation.

A gorgeous dual aspect room, the main feature of the kitchen/breakfast room is again the exposed post and beam green oak frame and vaulted ceiling. Double glazed windows to the front and side elevations and further double glazed feature gable end windows provide an immense amount of natural light. The kitchen itself is fitted with a sleek range of floor and wall cabinets and drawers with a solid oak block work surface and contrasting tiled splashback with built in breakfast bar. Integrated appliances include an electric oven with ceramic induction hob and extractor canopy above, a built-in microwave oven with plate warming drawer below, a dishwasher, under counter fridge and freezer, 1.5 bowl stainless steel sink with drainer and a further circular stainless steel sink with monobloc tap. The solid oak flooring with underfloor heating continues and a feature curved mosaic wall adds a unique appeal. A further door leads into the utility room which is fitted with a range of floor and wall cabinets with working surface above, stainless steel sink and drainer and space and plumbing for an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer. A further pedestrian door leads out to the side of the property.

Descend to the lower ground floor landing via the oak staircase and oak veneer doors serve the four deluxe double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom is a light and spacious dual aspect room fitted with an extensive range of modern built-in wardrobes and drawers with a double glazed window to the side elevation and large double glazed French doors leading out to the rear garden enjoying rural views. The stunning en-suite shower room is fully tiled with natural stone travertine throughout and features a curved mosaic wall and a wet room style shower with full height glazed shower screen and Mira thermostatic shower, crisp white sanitary ware and chrome heated chrome towel rail. There are three further genuine double bedrooms, all with an extensive range of fitted wardrobes and drawers, one with a rear aspect enjoying pleasant views over the garden and adjoining countryside and the remaining two having an aspect to the side. The family bathroom is again fully tiled with stunning natural stone travertine throughout and fitted with a crisp white contemporary suite complete with a double ended panelled bath with central bath filler and wall mounted taps over, low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin, heated chrome towel rail and a large walk-in shower enclosure with full height glazed screen and Mira rainwater head shower.

Gwel Uhel is situated on a generous plot but is rather deceiving from the front elevation as from the road it can only be seen as a single storey dwelling. To the front of the property there is an extensive gravelled driveway providing off road parking and turning area for several vehicles. The double garage is electrically operated with cedar double entrance door, power and light connected and useful attic storage above. A floor mounted biomass wood pellet boiler sits at the back of the garage providing domestic hot water and central heating for the property. The front is also enclosed with attractive Cornish stone walling with side access down either side of the house with access to a large undercroft which has light and power connected, providing an ideal space for dry storage, currently used as a wood store/general store by the vendors. To the rear is an enclosed south facing rear garden being laid mostly to lawn, enjoying the great valley, cliff and sea views on offer with feature gravel and decked areas. The main entertaining area at Gwel Uhel has to be the stunning raised decked terrace enclosed with green oak post and rail with glass inset panelling, thus enjoying the best of the views on offer both over the adjoining countryside and down the valet to the sea beyond. Services to the property include mains water and electricity, private drainage and a biomass wood pellet boiler serving the hot water and underfloor heating system.

Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Crackington Haven is a small yet favoured coastal village on the North coast, West of Bude and east of Boscastle.

In the summer, Crackington Haven has a bustling beach life, being a popular destination for surfers and families alike. There is a bistro café, beach shop and a family pub called The Coombe Barton Inn, a real gem with a reputation for excellent food and hospitality.
