Berry House is an elegant Georgian home situated remotely in open farmland close to the cliffs of the rugged and dramatic North Devon coast. This is a designated 'area of outstanding natural beauty' and the house has superb views out to sea as well as inland across a wooded valley to the tall medieval tower of St Nectan's church. Great care has been taken to retain the character of the building whilst discreetly incorporating the best modern services and to promote a great sense of contemporary style without the feeling of being 'too new'! The flag stoned entrance hall with main staircase opens out to a formal paneled drawing room with open fireplace, and the dining room with log burner. The original kitchen is well appointed with flag stone floors and central island unit. The breakfast room with sea views leads out to the patio which is ideal for informal dining and barbecues.
