Situated on a generous plot in an elevated position, therefore taking full advantage of stunning views over the Taw Estuary and countryside beyond, a most unusual, individual 1960's house, offering fantastic potential to modernise and adapt.

Situated within the enviable location of Ashford, on a generous elevated plot taking full advantage of the stunning views over the Taw Estuary and open countryside beyond, is this individual 1960's property with the majority of the accommodation being on the ground floor, but with the main sitting room on the first floor level to take full advantage of the triple aspect views and having a vaulted ceiling with exposed roof joists and pictures windows and door leading to a fabulous balcony, again taking full advantage of the panoramic outlook.

The house itself offers fantastic scope and potential to prospective purchasers and therefore worthy of a full inspection. The property currently offers: entrance hall, cloakroom, utility/laundry room, kitchen/breakfast room, 4 bedrooms with the master having an ensuite bathroom/dressing area and 3 further bedrooms and family bathroom. There is also an internal sun room/central atrium and a fabulous dining/living room, again with picture window affording spectacular views.

Situated on a generous plot the property is approached over a private gravelled driveway providing ample parking and turning. There is a large covered car port and storage area and access leads round to the south facing rear garden offering mature gardens and grounds, predominantly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees, shrubs and plants. There are various terraces, ideal for outdoor dining, and again taking full advantage of the stunning outlook. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and separate sauna. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a most unusual property with an abundance of potential to create a designer home and of course views such as this are few and far between.

The accommodation in brief comprises: entrance hall, cloakroom with 2-piece suite with sliding door. A door leads to a covered area which gives access to the rear garden and a useful utility/laundry room. The master bedroom has a large picture window enjoying views over the garden and estuary and fields beyond and a door gives access to the bathroom/dressing room with built-in wardrobes with sliding doors, panelled bath, vanitory wash basin and a separate w.c. The kitchen/breakfast room has parquet flooring to the breakfast area which leads through to the kitchen offering a range of medium oak wall and base units with working surfaces over, inset sink unit, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, ceramic hob, electric oven and tiled floor. An inner hallway leads to the sun room/central atrium with a quarry tiled floor and windows to both the kitchen/breakfast room and dining room and part glazed roof - making this an extremely light and airy room taking full advantage of the south facing aspect. From the inner hallway steps lead down to the dining room/living room with parquet flooring, floor to ceiling stone feature chimneybreast and a large picture window, again enjoying a fantastic outlook over the gardens, estuary and countryside beyond.

From the kitchen/breakfast room a door leads to the bedroom accommodation with 3 bedrooms, 2 overlooking the rear garden and views of the estuary and the smaller single to the front elevation. In addition, there is a bathroom with 3-piece suite.

Returning to the main entrance hall, stairs lead to the first floor sitting room with vaulted ceiling, stone fireplace with inset wood burning stove on a stone hearth, exposed timber joists and triple aspect window with fabulous picture windows and door to the rear elevation leading out to the balcony/verandah, which is large enough for a small bistro table and chairs therefore being able to enjoy the breath taking views.

Outside, the property is approached over a gravelled driveway providing ample parking and turning area. There is a covered car port and further covered storage area. There are mature gardens to the front with a variety of shrubs and plants and a pathway leading round to the south facing rear garden with a large sun terrace, ideal for dining al fresco, mature shrubs, trees and plants and a central pathway with lawns to both sides leading down to the outdoor swimming pool with paved surround and sauna.
