Steeped in rich history being 1 of 3 similar properties that form part of Barnstaple's iconic skyline since the late 1800's is this imposing 4 Bedroom semi-detached period property located within a pleasant walk of the town, schools and everyday amenities.
Originally a detached Gentleman's Residence, the property has been skilfully and sympathetically divided over time to provide highly adaptable accommodation which has currently served as a comfortable and spacious family home but has equal potential to provide separate living / letting units and further potential to develop within the gardens, all subject, of course, to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
South Garron is arranged over 4 floors with a large Basement which is currently utilised as useful storage. The main living accommodation will be found on the Ground Floor and includes a "Conservatory style" Kitchen / Breakfast Room, a large bay fronted Living Room enjoying far-reaching views across Barnstaple Town and the countryside beyond, and a separate Dining Room. An additional Mezzanine Room on this floor has previously provided self- contained bedsitting style accommodation. The First Floor Landing provides access to 3 Bedrooms (including the Master Bedroom) and the family Bathroom - all with town views, whilst on the Second Floor is a further spacious Bedroom and a large Attic Room offering further conversion potential. In addition to the house and its extensive gardens, there is ample driveway parking and 2 En-bloc Garages.
This is truly a rare opportunity not to be missed. Whether you are looking for a period home for a large family or somewhere to provide an Annexe for the parents or teenage children or, alternatively, the challenge of converting into independent letting units, South Garron should most definitely be on your viewing list.
