Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set within a quiet and secluded area of outstanding natural beauty overlooking countryside towards North Devon Coastline and the picturesque village of Combe Martin this stone built residence has the potential to become a substantial family home having been part extended, this could be a real property of distinction. Set within large grounds the secluded elevated location provides spectacular views and has the added advantage of a part converted barn within the main grounds which extend some 4.5 acres. There is a further 5 acres of woodlands and 7 acres of additional pastureland so there's plenty of potential to provide additional business income from holiday letting or equestrian pursuits.

The property has existing planing permission in place which has been used to add the side extension with further permission to extend at the rear from the existing footprint to provide more floor space for a larger kitchen and utility area and an additional bedroom. The barn has existing planing permission for Holiday Letting and could be extended further to provide larger family accommodation. In recent years the main house has been extended and undergone some refurbishment works but this has not been completed and it needs additional work to realize the full potential of the property. This provides an opportunity for individuals to finish the renovation in their own style and and scope to reconfigure to make the property suitable for a variety of personal preferences.
