ABOUT THE LIFESTYLE THIS PROPERTY OFFERS This particular apartment offers many opportunities for a change of lifestyle. It would be wonderful as a holiday home whether personal or commercial or a combination of both. Imagine having a comfortable lock-up-and-leave at your beck and call where you can idle away the hours on the Balcony admiring the ever-changing views. For those who seek activity, the scenic Tarka Trail is on your doorstep for walks, cycle rides or runs. More keen on boating? the North Devon Yacht Club is next door. If romantic walks on the beach and wining and dining are more your caper then there are some great restaurants, most notably The Boathouse, the Commodore Hotel and the Instow Arms. If you are looking for a permanent home then all of the above applies and there is a great local community if you wish to get involved.
ABOUT THE APARTMENT The apartment is located on the Second Floor of the building and is accessed initially by a secure intercom controllable front door that gives access to the communal parts of the building. The apartment, itself, is accessed via its own solid door with nest doorbell and camera.
The Entrance Hall provides a warm welcome to the apartment and has an intercom to the main front door and a hatch providing access to the loft space. To your right is the Shower Room which is newly installed and features a fully enclosed shower cubicle, a cabinet mounted wash hand basin and a low level WC as well as a heated towel rail and extractor fan. The second Bedroom is found to the left and is well-equipped with fitted wardrobes and a recess allowing for a home office set-up. Views down the Tarka Trail can be enjoyed from the window and even from the bed itself. The main Bedroom, again, has a fitted wardrobe, a lovely big window and has its own En-suite Shower Room which has a similar set up to the main Shower Room.
The open-plan Living / Kitchen / Diner is the heart of the home providing a fantastic and versatile living space to be enjoyed throughout the year. Sliding doors give access to the Balcony from where the ever-changing views of the water, Instow and the Tarka Trail can be enjoyed. The Living Room has plenty of options for different furniture configurations and there is space for dining as well.

WHAT THE OWNERS SAY The things we have especially enjoyed are the ever-changing view, the quick access to the Tarka Trail, dog walks on the beach, and that the flat is comfortable and everything works. Other things that have made this a great home are that the flats are well-managed and the residents and the community are friendly and amenable. We've enjoyed going on the bus (stops just outside Chandlers Court) to the theatre in Barnstaple and to the Appledore Book Festival. Visiting grandchildren have enjoyed the sports facilities, including tennis, in Bideford, and surfing and body-boarding at Westward Ho and Saunton Sands. The roof space in the flat provides storage for wetsuits and surf boards. The flat is perfect for having friends to stay for long weekends.
A VERY SPECIAL FEATURE The owner has installed 2 nest cameras, one at the front door as you would expect to allow remote conversations with visitors, and one pointing towards the Estuary so that the view can still be enjoyed whilst you are away.
IMPORTANT NOTICE All non-fitted items are available for sale via separate negotiation with the exception of the majority of the artwork.
WAYS THE CURRENT OWNER HAS IMPROVED THE APARTMENT The walls, apart from the central structural one, were removed along with all the floors. A new floor was installed with heavy insulation, and pipes were run under the floors. New walls were built to provide the accommodation required, including the En-suite and the Shower Room. New floor coverings were laid throughout using carpet and laminate where appropriate. A new Kitchen was installed with built-in appliances, along with built-in wardrobes in the Bedrooms. The new front door has a Yale lock and a 5-lever lock. There is a Nest heating controller in the living area which can be remotely controlled. The lights are all down lighter controlled by a RAKO device with wireless switches and dimmers. All the doors and windows are new with the exception of the patio door which had already been recently replaced. Bedroom 2 can be used as an Office with connections for working from home.
From Bideford Quay proceed over the Old Bideford Bridge and upon reaching the mini roundabout, turn left in the direction of Barnstaple. Continue on this road to the next roundabout proceeding straight on towards Instow passing Tapeley Park on your right hand side. Continue for approximately 0.5 miles taking the left hand turning signposted Instow. Chandlers Court will be immediately found on your left hand side. Enter the development and bear left into the car parking area. Approaching the apartments on foot, the entrance to number 10 will be found to the rear of the buildings clearly displaying a numberplate.
