Korniloff residential care home with a 2 bedroom self contained apartment, provides the opportunity to own a business in one of the most outstanding prime waterside locations along the South Devon coast. Located in the heart of the coastal village of Bigbury-on-Sea, the commanding position of the property only a short walk from the beach, affords 180 degree panoramic sea views towards the iconic Burgh Island, Bantham and Thurlestone beaches and the Avon Estuary and beyond. Not surprisingly its former existence was as the popular Korniloff Hotel in the 1930s.
Bigbury-on-Sea situated within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a well favoured holiday and second home destination, renowned for its large expanse of sandy tombolo beach with a causeway to Burgh Island and landmark Hotel and Inn, crossed by sea tractor at high tide. The River Avon estuary meets the sea at this point and to either side are extensive stretches of breath taking coastal scenery.
Korniloff extends to approximately 0.566 of an acre and it includes the original Hotel building centrally positioned within the plot, which over the years to facilitate its use as a residential care home, has been extended to some 8,185 SQ FT of accommodation, arranged over three floors. All of the ground and lower ground rooms give level access to the gardens and car parking without the need to negotiate stairs. The property was closed by the resident owners in 2018, and was previously registered for 17 occupants. Due to recent closure there is no trading information available.
The original Edwardian building is of traditional cavity wall construction under a slate roof with a later flat roofed extension added in the late 60s. The extensive accommodation is arranged over lower, ground and first floors to include a self contained two bedroom apartment ideal as staff quarters. A number of bedrooms on the lower ground floor open out to a paved terrace to the front of the building allowing level access to the car park. Most of the rooms afford the most stunning far reaching sea views towards Burgh Island and beyond. On the ground floor an extensive fully glazed sun room provides a 180 degree aspect out to sea. On the first floor a number of the rooms open out directly to a sea facing balcony, yet again with breath taking sea views.
The property comes with its very own bar as one of a number of reception rooms and under the floor of the lounge and sun room is an Australian timber sprung dance floor. If that’s not enough to inspire the entertainer in you, steps in the lounge lead up to an elevated stage area.
All in all the business opportunities provided by this remarkable property are numerous and offer the most exciting prospects for any potential entrepreneurial purchaser.
