Property Description

Key features


Full description

Occupying an enviable location within a few minutes drive of the spectacular coastline with glorious far reaching views, this oil fired centrally heated, PVCu double glazed, 3 reception room, 4 bedroom (en-suite master) detached bungalow has a spectacular 36ft conservatory, and enjoys a high degree of privacy with no immediate neighbours. The whole is some 0.7 acres, with expansive level lawns, plenty of parking, a double garage, and very adaptable general purpose outbuilding incorporating a workshop, potting room, and former stables. Great location perfect for commuting about midway between Bideford and Bude.

The original residence at Penalter Park is a Woolaway bungalow built around 1966/1967. It has subsequently been re-modelled, and conventionally extended to offer accommodation which is spacious and adaptable. It comprises:- Entrance Porch, Entrance Hall, Double Aspect Lounge with fireplace, Modern Fitted Kitchen, Dining Room, 36ft Conservatory, Utility Room, En-Suite Master Bedroom, 3 Further Bedrooms, and Family Shower Room.

The property enjoys a very sought after setting on the seaward side of the Atlantic Highway. To enjoy this wonderful stretch of coastline, it is only a matter of a few minutes drive and you can be walking along spectacular cliffs looking down into secluded bays and coves. The villages of Hartland and Kilkhampton offer traditional amenities and are both about 6 miles distant. Bude and Bideford are about 10 and 15 miles away respectively, and for those wishing to travel further afield the M5 near Tiverton is about an hours drive. This area of Devon and Cornwall is dotted with small unspoilt villages/hamlets, and there are some highly recommended inns close by including The Old Smithy at Welcombe, and Bush Inn at Morwenstow.

From Holsworthy proceed on the A3072 towards Bude until reaching Red Post, and here turn right signed Kilkhampton. Upon reaching the A39 at Kilkhampton turn right signed Bideford, and after 4.5 miles you will reach Welcombe Cross. Turn left here signed Welcombe, and Penalter Park will be found after 1 mile on the left hand side with a Bond Oxborough Phillips 'For Sale' notice clearly displayed.
