The property now offers adaptable accommodation over 2 floors and comprises entrance hall, 2 good reception rooms, both with feature fireplaces housing dual fuel burning stoves, a separate study, large country-style kitchen with a range of wall and base units, Belfast sink, a large brick built fireplace housing a 4-oven Redfyre range cooker, spacious walk-in larder and quarry tiled floor. Off the kitchen is the boot room with access to outside, a utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine and other appliances and a cloakroom with 2-piece white suite. Also accessed off the kitchen is a further small reception room ideal as a snug with another room above, accessed via paddle stairs, which could be used as an occasional bedroom 6/studio.
On the first floor is the master bedroom which is a large double with walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom comprising a 4-piece white suite, with roll top bath, shower cubicle, pedestal wash handbasin and w.c. There are 2 further spacious doubles with feature fireplaces, bedroom 4 which is split level with the mezzanine accessed via paddle stairs, bedroom 5/hobbies room also accessed via paddle stairs from the landing and a family bathroom comprising 4-piece white suite with bath, shower cubicle, pedestal wash handbasin and w.c.
Outside, the property is situated, off a no through drive, in an elevated position on the side of a wooded valley enjoying an open aspect with views over its own grounds to the woods beyond. The gardens and grounds surround the property and lead down to the river below where the property enjoys fishing rights. From the gardens well maintained pathways lead through the woodland, down the river valley to a grassed opening and back up through the woods returning to the property. A large patio stretches the length of the property and offers an ideal space for outdoor dining and takes in the lovely views. There is driveway parking for 4 vehicles to the front of the property and accessed by a separate drive is further ample parking and turning, a detached double garage and a further 2-storey stone outbuilding.
The property is well situated near this pleasant village which offers a local inn and is close to the North Devon countryside yet within approximately 4 miles of Barnstaple town centre, which offers a variety of high street shops, banks and leisure facilities. The North Devon coast is within easy reach and the popular sandy surfing beaches at Saunton, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe are all readily accessible. For golfers there are the two Championship Courses at Saunton and Ilfracombe. At Barnstaple access is gained to the North Devon Link Road which provides a fast route to the M5 Motorway at Junction 27 (Tiverton) about 30 miles away.
