The Grade II-listed country house occupies a prime spot along the coastline, near Stoke, and was part of the Hartland Abbey estate until the 1950s. Its present owners have spent 20 years lovingly restoring the Devon property and its postcard gardens, taking them back to their 18th-century form while imbuing its room with character.
A grand hallway, with full-height panelled walls and high cornices, greets visitors to the country property and is flanked by two sunny reception rooms, appointed with a large open fireplace and shuttered sash windows that look out towards the valley.
The kitchen blends period colours with modern appliances, with original flagstone flooring running underfoot into the dining room, with French windows onto the terrace beyond.
Hartland Point has no shortage of bedrooms – 10 in total – which occupy the main level of the house and attic, beneath the sloping beams of its roof. A complex of cellars and cold storage also run beneath the property, with a total of 7,300 sq ft of living space. It’s for sale via Inigo, priced at £2.5m and is currently run as a holiday let, details of which can be shared on request.
