A WONDERFUL COTTAGE BRIMMING WITH CHARM & CHARACTER
Spacious Sitting / Dining Room

South-facing courtyard garden
Town centre, park & river are all within walking distance

A wonderful cottage that is brimming with charm and character that is situated in one of Bideford's finest locations.
Glen Cottage East is a Grade II listed character cottage that apparently once served as a local pub. When standing in the spacious Sitting / Dining Room you can easily imagine the place a couple of hundred years ago filled with merry customers, and with an open fire roaring in the corner. Now there is a wood burning stove that fills one chimney breast and a Rayburn in the other. The current owner is in the process of having a new gas boiler installed to bring the property fully up to speed.
The courtyard garden is accessible from the Kitchen as well as the Sitting Room and is south-facing so is sure to soak up the sun. At the moment, the garden is a pale reflection of its former self but you can tell that with a bit of elbow grease and some green fingered magic it will be an enchanting space to be enjoyed again very soon.
There are 3 Bedrooms upstairs as well as a Bathroom. Views over jaunty rooftops towards the town can be enjoyed from upstairs.
I mentioned the fine location earlier and it truly is. The town centre, the park and the river are all within walking distance and you will find yourself in the immediate company of some truly beautiful properties.
Though not formally written into the deeds, there is space to park a car outside the cottage as the current and former owners have done.
This is a one of a kind property and is available for sale with no onward chain. To view, please contact us by your preferred means at our Bideford Office.
