With origins believed to date back to the 1890's, is this refurbished three bedroom character residence situated on the outer fringes of this popular North Devon village. The property is approached via a pair of gates leading up the driveway, where the sense of grandeur already becomes apparent with the stone faced bay directly in front and bearing around to your left, you enter through a further five bar gate to the off road parking area. Entering into the home through a pair of double doors, there is a glazed family room, enabling views out over the garden and to enjoy the beaming sunshine, this room makes for a fantastic space to sit in.
A pair of double doors from the garden room lead into a vast hallway, where there is a huge amount of space and could be used as a study area, the staircase rises to the first floor landing and doorways lead off to; a formal dining room with open fireplace and a pair of sliding sash windows. The family living room really boasts a surprising amount of space, again with an open fireplace and the bay window which allows light to flood the room and allows additional space to create a flexible layout. The room is adorned with picture rails and decorative mouldings, which can be found throughout most parts of the home and with high ceilings very typical of this age of property, the ceiling in this room measures just over ten feet approximately. Another doorway from the hall leads into a newly fitted kitchen with wooden worksurfacing, single electric oven and inset hob with extractor fan over. The kitchen makes for a super entertaining space where there is room for a further dining table or a place for children to do their homework.
Moving upstairs to the first floor, passing the feature half landing window is another spacious area where there is enough room for a desk or to use as a library area. Doorways off the landing lead to three double bedrooms, one of which, Bedroom 2 has the added benefit of a three piece ensuite shower room. All three bedrooms again benefit from character features such as decorative mouldings, picture rails and fireplaces. Also on the first floor is a separate four piece family bathroom featuring a jacuzzi style bath and low maintenance tile finish.
Outside, the garden is enclosed all the way around providing a sense of security and privacy. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with a two tier arrangement where the garden seamlessly slopes from one level into the other and with a separate set of steps down one side. There is also a pleasant paved area that allows for an outdoor dining area and also an area to sit and enjoy the majority of the days sun.
In conclusion this home feels grand the moment you step onto the driveway. It has been part of a strict refurbishment programme and so if you are looking for a character property without the need to do any work, then do not delay and call us to book your viewing tour as soon as possible.
