Viewing recommended

On the market for the first time, is Roachdown, an individually designed and substantial detached family house, built from scratch in 1975 but never totally completed. It stands in an elevated, secluded location within gardens and grounds of approximately 3.5 acres bordered to one side by a small stream and offers a wealth of fauna, flora and trees including rare plants, flowers and fungi.

With its very quiet rural setting and long drive approach, it would be easy to think you are miles from anywhere, but in fact, the small market town of Holsworthy is just 6 miles drive away with its comprehensive choice of local shops and amenities. Bude on the Cornish coast is 14 miles away, Bideford is the same distance to the north and Okehampton is 23 miles to the south. From there, the A30 provides quick and easy access to Exeter and the M5 motorway.

Built by the well thought of headmistress of the local school and renowned woodcarver, the property, although relatively modern, offers a wealth of character features including beams, wood burner standing on a slate hearth, hand carved door handles, bespoke door mechanisms to the wc's, stained glass windows and "Priest Hole". Heating is provided by the wood burner and there are hardwood double glazed windows to most windows.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors and offers tremendous adaptability to suit several differing layouts depending upon the use required. With the addition of extra features, such as balcony to the front, the property could be easily transformed into a homes and garden feature building. In many ways the property is a "blank canvas".

We are delighted to have been asked to market this property on behalf of the vendors and we highly recommend a viewing to appreciate the huge potential this property offers. It has provided a superb family home for 40 years and now is crying out for the project to be finished with modernisation required.
