A well presented, bright & spacious 3 bedroom ground floor apartment with private terrace & garage in desirable front line waterside position enjoying breathtaking views of the beach and estuary. EPC Band C.


Situation And Amenities - Marine Court sits literally adjoining the beach, enjoying unrivalled westerly views over the Torridge to Appledore and out to the Atlantic, within one of North Devon's most popular villages. Instow offers a choice of inns and restaurants, the Commodore Hotel, Johns General Store / Delicatessen / Post Office and cafe, primary school, church and chapel. The North Devon Yacht Club and Cricket Club are both important local institutions. The wonderful beach with its lovely sandy dunes is ideal for all ages, and has its own appeal throughout the year, and is also dog friendly. The Tarka Trail is also close by and is ideal for both cyclists and walkers alike. Instow is situated between the market town of Bideford and the regional centre of Barnstaple. The former sits on the River Torridge and offers an excellent range of amenities and leisure pursuits, including supermarkets, banks and schooling. Barnstaple is approximately 7 miles away and as the regional centre, offers the area's main business, commercial, entertainment and shopping venues. From Barnstaple, the A361 provides a good route to the M5 Motorway at Junction 27 (Tiverton), about 45 miles away. Also Tiverton Parkway mainline railway station is serviced directly from London Paddington (in just over 2 hours).

Description - Flat 4 comprises a ground floor apartment one of just 15 within a purpose built block built in 1979, on the site of a former hotel. The block presents colourwash rendered elevations with double glazed windows beneath a tiled roof, and apartments here are rarely available and much sought after. Internally the apartment has been updated within recent years to include a refit of the kitchen/breakfast room, as well as the 2 bathrooms. The private terrace looks directly down onto the beach and across the estuary to Appledore and out to sea. The apartment is considered ideal as a principal residence, second home or offers potential to produce a healthy income from letting on an assured shorthold tenancy basis, or indeed, a combination of these uses.
