The Blue House is a striking, architecturally designed home exuding coastal comfort and quirky charm. This modern Bude beach house sleeps eight guests and offers a contemporary reverse living design across three floors. It’s close to Bude’s beautiful sandy beaches, as well as Bude town, making it a fantastic base for a north coast adventure.
This modern Bude beach house is one of just four houses on Ash Row designed by renowned architect Ian Hogarth, whose London home featured on Grand Designs. Modern, fresh, and bright — The Blue House is family-friendly and sleeps up to eight guests across four bedrooms. It has all the trappings for a coastal escape, plus private off-road parking with EV charging.
Inspired by a combination of Bude’s Victorian architecture and its iconic, colourful beach huts, The Blue House embodies the epitome of a Cornish seaside holiday. Upon arriving, you’re warmly welcomed into a spacious open plan living area consisting of kitchen, dining room and lounge. The space is filled with ample coastal light from the sliding glass balcony doors and high ceiling, making it feel bright and airy. It’s the perfect place to relax with family and friends, planning the day’s adventures, or gathering for an evening meal. Keen cooks can relish in the well-equipped kitchen, making use of the top spec appliances, whilst the lounge area invites a cosier feel — perfect for settling in to watch a movie after an action-packed day. This modern Bude beach house has been designed with sustainability at the forefront, so it’s well-insulated with a sophisticated underfloor system, but should you require extra warmth there’s also a wood burner for those cooler wintery evenings.
The four tastefully furnished bedrooms are located across the ground and middle floors, which all have sleek, modern ensuites. The principle king bedroom on the middle floor has an ensuite with shower over the bath, and enjoys access to a private decked balcony which looks out towards the sea. The ground floor king also has access to an outside garden area — a gorgeous little sun trap — and has a wet room style ensuite with large walk-in shower. The utility room can be found on the ground floor, and a separate WC on the top floor.
Outside space can be found on each floor of The Blue House, which enjoys two balconies as well as an enclosed ground floor garden area. Both balconies – one on the top floor and the other off the principal king bedroom – enjoy peaceful views over Bude golf course and Crooklets beach in the distance; it’s the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or sundowner. Designed with the outdoor lifestyle in mind, this modern Bude beach house also has a secure beach storage area plus handy outside shower.
The Blue House benefits from being in a superb location, with its close proximity to Bude’s beautiful beaches — Crooklets and Summerleaze – as well as the bustling town centre, which has a multitude of cafes, shops and restaurants. Bude’s coastline is a mecca for water sport activities with its golden sands and epic sunsets; seasonal lifeguards operate on all the main beaches here so it’s safe and family-friendly. There’s an array of surf schools to try such as Bude Surfing Experience who offer surf, paddle boarding and SUP yoga lessons throughout the year. Bude’s famous sea pool can also be found just a short walk away, which is Cornwall’s oldest and biggest tidal pool, and the best thing is that you can simply turn up and jump on in for free! If you fancy a change from water sports, try Adventure Bude who also offer land-based activities like mountain boarding or rock climbing at their purpose built site in the town.
