Tenure: Freehold

An historic and substantial Grade II Listed Devon long house in the picturesque hamlet of Lincombe near Lee with stunning countryside views and within walking distance of North Devon's beautiful coastline but secluded enough to provide a peaceful environment. This property has lots of history with the manor being listed in the Doomsday book and previous occupants in the twelfth century include the notorious Sheriff of Nottingham. The house has undergone changes over subsequent centuries with some of the retained windows dating back to Elizabethan times hence the listing status. Whilst it has retained lots of the original character features it has been carefully restored to a high specification with a lot of the more fundamental jobs having been completed. The owners have kept detailed records of the works undertaken to date and these are available upon request. However, there is still scope to improve the layout further to suit individual requirements and enhance the appearance.

The existing owners have obtained planning permission and listed building consent to extend the existing main property into the adjourning barns, provide a defined parking area and a one bedroom self contained unit. These plans are classed as materially commenced so are not time constrained although deviation from the proposed plan would need approval but only as an amendment so can be achieved swiftly. Details of the proposals which included a separate gym and sauna are available upon request but there is considerable scope to amend to suit individual need/requirements. There is a separate barn which has planning permission for conversion into a two bedroom property with separate parking which is ideal for the extended family or for those looking for additional income from a holiday letting business or similar. The owners have work closely with local planners and paved the way to enable subsequent owners to create a magnificent family home.

The small coastal village of Lee is a mile or so further down the road which has a local pub, church and village hall as well as some spectacular walks. Ilfracombe is just 3 miles away and Barnstaple North Devon's principle town, is 13 miles away, both towns offer local produce along with theatres, great restaurants, multiple leisure facilities, hospitals and extensive shopping facilities. There is a range of excellent local facilities in nearby, Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton with beaches close by offering water sports and other leisure facilities.

There are good roads to the A361 North Devon Link Road providing fast route to the M5. Tiverton also offers a main line rail to London Paddington in approx. 2 hours.
