Situation And Amenities - On the fringe of this favourite estuary village, within the Sandhills area, directly overlooking the village cricket ground with views beyond over the dunes, beach, the mouth of the estuary and out to sea. The property is also within level walking distance of the Tarka Trail and Instow village centre with an excellent range of local amenities catering for day to day needs. The larger towns of Bideford and Barnstaple are about 3 and 7 miles distant respectively. There is access at Barnstaple to the North Devon Link Road leading through to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway in about 45 minutes where Tiverton Parkway also provides a fast service of trains to London Paddington in just over 2 hours. The property is also within half an hour's drive of the safe, sandy, surfing beaches of Croyde, Saunton and Woolacombe and a similar distance to Exmoor National Park. The Cornish border is also within about half an hour.

Description - Understood to have been constructed in the 1940's, this unique structure was originally built to house munitions and generators. The building is single storey of substantial brick construction, there are windows in three elevations and double doors in the front elevation. All apertures are covered externally by cast iron doors and shutters. The building offers potential for a variety of uses, subject to planning permission, including the ultimate beach hut, cricket pavilion or some other commercial/residential use such as an ice cream kiosk etc. There is no external space, but the flat roof would make an excellent terrace, accessed by an internal spiral staircase perhaps. The views from here across the cricket ground with the beach, estuary and sea as a backdrop are quite spectacular. Cast iron double doors lead in to:

The Main Area - 18' X 16' (5.49m X 4.88m) - With two windows.

Area 2 - 10' X 9'11 (3.05m X 3.02m) - With window.

Area 3 - 9'11 X 8' (3.02m X 2.44m) - Once again with window.
There is a concrete base and vents within the structure. As previously mentioned there is no external space.

Services - We understand that mains drainage, electricity and water are available close by, subject to agreeing easements with adjoining land owners.

Directions - Approaching Instow from the Bideford direction on the B3233 upon entering the village turn left on to Marine Parade and proceed along the sea front. Upon reaching the Sandhills Car Park, turn left and proceed along the road keeping to the right hand side.
