Fircroft is a substantial deceptively spacious and much improved detached residence situated in a popular location along the main approach road to Woolacombe Bay which is famous for its two and a half miles of award winning golden sand blue flag beaches. The property is well presented throughout and it is currently run as a successful bed & breakfast, letting 3 en suite bedrooms and producing an income circa 15,000 per annum. The current owners are running the business on a part time basis and there is further scope to increase turnover if required. Alongside the Bed & Breakfast business within the rear garden there is a detached garden room which has potential to be used as ancillary accommodation or as a holiday letting unit subject to any necessary consent.

Despite the property's current business use Fircroft would appeal as a large family home with flexible accommodation which could also incorporate a dependant relative or even two family accommodation and planning permission has been granted recently to split the property to form a main house and separate holiday apartment.

The property is accessed from the front with the entrance being directly into a large upvc double glazed conservatory which is a particularly appealing south facing room enjoying the views across the countryside and down the valley towards the Atlantic Ocean. Double doors from the conservatory lead into a good sized pleasant dining room which has a fire place and double doors again lead into a 16' x 16' twin aspect lounge. At the rear there is a 16' recently fitted kitchen which has a range of contemporary contrasting base and wall units complimented by granite work surfaces and having integrated appliances which include a hob with extractor canopy over and oven under, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. There is a breakfast bar and a tiled floor. At the far end of the kitchen there is a small utility area with plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.

There are 3 ground floor bedrooms. The master bedroom has been recently revamped and now comprises a very attractive suite with a range of contemporary fitted wardrobes with lighting over and provision for a flat screen television. There is a good sized modern fitted en suite shower room/wc which comprises a shower cubicle, low level wc and hand basin. There are glass shelves with lighting either side of the shower cubicle. Bedroom 4 is a particularly attractive and appealing room located at the rear of the building and comprising a separate dressing area and a recently fitted modern en suite shower room/w.c.

On the first floor there are a further 2 double bedrooms, both of which benefit from en suite facilities, one being a bathroom and the other being a shower room.

The property benefits from gas central heating and has upvc double glazed doors and windows.

Outside the property is approached via a brick paviour driveway which leads to a double length garage and workshop with light and power. Adjacent to the driveway there are 7 gravelled parking bays providing plenty of off road parking for Bed & Breakfast guests. Throughout the front garden there are numerous raised flower beds well stocked with mature bushes, shrubs and plants including hydrangeas, fuchsias and heathers and steps lead up from the driveway onto a large paved front sun terrace which enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and the views across the surrounding countryside down the valley towards Woolacombe Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. At the right hand side of the property there is a narrow pathway which leads around to the rear garden. At the left hand side there is a much wider brick paviour pathway which could park further vehicles if required. At the rear a patio leads from the kitchen with steps in turn leading up onto a gravelled sitting area with a brick paviour patio and colourful raised well stocked flower beds, garden pond and outside lighting. Further steps lead up to the garden room which is a detached and arranged as four separate rooms and could be used as ancillary accommodation or a letting unit subject to any planning consent as necessary. The garden room benefits from electric storage heating and has upvc double glazed windows. In front of the garden room there is a small paved patio area with attractive colourful flowerbeds surrounding and steps lead up onto the main part of the rear garden which is large and laid mainly to lawn having been attractively landscaped with a variety of hedges, shrubs, bushes and heathers. The gardens extend back away from the house up onto a large level extremely private area of garden which is bounded by mature hedges. The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property and enjoy a sunny southerly aspect and the views across the surrounding countryside towards Woolacombe Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
