Situation - Little Bourne is set in a peaceful rural location on the western side of the Taw Valley, about two miles from the popular, small town of Chulmleigh. The property enjoys exceptional views over its own land that runs down to the river Taw and beyond. Chulmleigh has an excellent community spirit and a good range of amenities including various shops, a post office, a new health centre, dentist, several pubs and restaurants, a church, a primary school and a community school which has a new community sports centre. There are also nearby rail stations on the Barnstaple to Exeter 'Tarka' line at Kings Nympton and Eggesford. The regional centre of Barnstaple is about 17 miles and the City of Exeter is 23 miles. The property is also just 11 miles from the busy market town of South Molton, with Exmoor only a few miles further.

Description - Little Bourne comprises a spacious, detached bungalow in a superb position overlooking its own land running down to the Taw. The bungalow, which has been extended by the current owners to provide an integral annexe 'suite' is presented in reasonable decorative order but would benefit from some further updating.

Accommodation - An ENCLOSED PORCH leads into the HALL with doors off to the KITCHEN which is fitted with a modern range of matching units with ceramic sink and fitted Rangemaster cooker with hood over. There is also plumbing for a dishwasher and space for fridge. Off the kitchen is a BOOT ROOM/CONSERVATORY with door to outside. Off the main hall is the BATHROOM fitted with a modern suite and airing cupboard. There are TWO BEDROOMS off the hall, both double rooms with built in wardrobes with the large bedroom enjoying the views across the valley. To the other side of the hall is the former kitchen, now used as a DINING ROOM, but still fitted with some kitchen units and Rayburn, fitted shelving and storage cupboard. The LIVING ROOM has an open fireplace with a tiled hearth and a large window overlooking the gardens and the valley.
The current owners have added an extension on the southern end of the bungalow that provides a SITTING ROOM with glazed door to the gardens and a FURTHER BEDROOM 3 with EN-SUITE BATHROOM. It is considered that this end of the property could easily be utilised as an ANNEXE or similar.

Outside - A splayed and gated entrance leads to a parking area to the front of the bungalow and to an open CAR PORT and SINGLE GARAGE with further store rooms and WC.
There are MATURE GARDENS around the bungalow comprising lawned areas, an orchard, many mature tress and well stocked flower and shrub borders. There is a patio area and a garden pond. The gardens open out onto wider areas of lawn with a wonderful outlook across the valley.
To the northern side of the bungalow is an enclosed paddock with polytunnel and a useful MODERN BUILDING (60' x 20'),
The main block of land runs away from the bungalow to the east and is down to gently sloping pasture running down to the banks of the river Taw. There is also a separate entrance into the field. In total the property extends to 5.24 ACRES.

Services - Mains electricity. Private water and drainage system. Central heating via radiators.

Agricultural Tie - The property is subject to an agricultural occupancy condition as follows:

"The dwelling shall only be occupied by persons employed or last employed locally in agriculture as defined by Section 221 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1962 and the dependants of such persons as aforesaid."

Viewing - Strictly by appointment please through the sole selling agents, Stags on 01769 572263.

Directions - From the A377 at Leigh Cross (just to the west of Chulmleigh) take the turning to the west signposted to Bridge Reeve. Continue down into the valley, cross over the bridge and at the T junction turn right. After a short distance at Coles Corner turn right signposted to Bourne, continue on this lane and Little Bourne will be found as the third property on the right.
