Property Description

Additional Information

I can't think of a property that better catches the heart and history of Bideford Town quite like this Grade II listed Georgian town house.

This spacious 3-storey property accommodates 5-6 Bedrooms and from beautiful staircases to original cast iron fireplaces - this property has character in abundance. As you look at the terrace from the road outside, the imposing figure is certain to gain your attention. The property looks large from the outside and doesn't disappoint once you enter the front door. Bright and open rooms with high ceilings give the property a sense of space that is a rarity nowadays.

As I enter the property, known as Halfpenny House, for the first time my eyes were immediately drawn to the sweeping staircase at the end of the Hall - the minimalism and stylishness really drew me in to what the rest of the property had to hold. This large family home, currently used as a holiday let, is a gem hidden in plain sight. It gives you the ability to put your own stamp on it and offers a great level of flexibility too. There are 2 lovely size Reception Rooms, 1 on the Ground Floor and 1 on the First Floor as well as a third Reception Room / Study currently used as a Store Room. There is a large Utility, a WC and 2 Bedrooms to the Ground Floor, the large of these Bedrooms is situated in what was originally the shop front with double doors leading to the property front. The previously mentioned staircase leads you to the First Floor where you will firstly find the generous Kitchen / Diner. With high ceilings and many windows, this room is a fantastic contemporary family space. On this floor you will also find a WC, a Bathroom and 2 double Bedrooms - both of which would make great children's or spare rooms. After being lucky to head up the next flight of stairs, you will find the 2 largest Bedrooms - the Master Bedroom is a huge space complete with 2 large windows to the property front as well as a feature room divide leading to the En-suite. The En-suite, itself, is both stylish and practical and feels as bright and airy as the Bedroom. The second Bedroom has the added benefit of triple built-in wardrobes meaning that there is no need to take up any of the large floor area with big storage units.

Outside, is a raised and enclosed rear garden laid mostly to decking and set within a glass balustrade. Accessed from the Kitchen / Diner, I really feel that this is a great entertaining space - perfect for late night dining or a morning cup of tea.

To the property front, on-street parking is available and there is also a variety of similar places to park on surrounding streets.
