If you thought penthouses were for sky-high city buildings, think again. This one is hidden away in the rolling velvet-green hills of North Devon, within easy reach of its beautiful coastline. And the views that this home offers rival that of any 35-floor urban apartment. Start your day with coffee and a dose of countryside utopia up on the sunny balcony. Or how about a sundowner at the fringes of the garden, where you can sip a chilled glass of wine as the sun sets over the tree-dotted hill in front of you? There are even gorgeous vistas from the cool, contemporary living-and-dining room, with floor-to-ceiling windows letting the idyllic Devonshire scenery in. And things are looking pretty good from the inside here, too. This home is minimalist yet timelessly chic, with wooden floors, neutral-coloured furniture and elegant striped carpets and bedding. But there's also the odd splash of drama – case in point, the glossy scarlet kitchen units with dark granite surfaces. The location is hard to beat, with the seaside resorts of Plymouth and Torquay both less than an hour away, and the nearest beach about 8km away. Down End beach is just 100m from the home, and the beautiful town of Croyde is a short drive away.
