An individual & tastefully modernised 4 bedroom detached character residence together with large garden enjoying breathtaking views of both coast & country, in a quiet no through lane just 5 minutes from the beach or maze of countryside walks. EPC Band D.


Situation And Amenities - The 'wow' factor of the property are the breathtaking views of both Combe Martin Bay and Exmoor which all principal rooms enjoy. In terms of situation, the property enjoys the best of all worlds, being on an elevated site, off a quiet 'no through' country lane, within 5 minutes walk of the village centre and beach, as well as a maze of footpaths leading to country walks. Combe Martin offers a variety of shops and amenities, including primary school, post office, health centre, restaurants and public houses. The village is well known for it's striking rugged cliffs and coves, situated on the dramatic North Devon Coastline and on the western fringes of Exmoor National Park. A regular bus service provides access to Braunton, Ilfracombe, Minehead and Regional Centre of Barnstaple, which is about 11 miles to the south and offers the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues as well as North Devon District Hospital. At Barnstaple there is access to the A361 North Devon Link Road which leads on to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway, in about 45 minutes and where Tiverton Parkway also offers a fast service of trains to London, Paddington, in just over two hours. North Devon's famous surfing beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe, are all within about 1/2 an hour by car.

Description - An individual, detached character residence which presents whitened rendered elevations with double glazing, beneath a tiled roof. We understand that the property probably dates originally from the 1920's but has been re-modelled and refreshed over the last 3 years and now offers tastefully modernised, well presented, bright, spacious and versatile accommodation. There are stripped pine doors and stripped wood flooring virtually throughout the property. The house is considered ideal for a family wanting access to the beach as well as country walks without having to use a car, whether this is as a principal residence, second home/UK base, holiday let investment, or a combination of these uses. Silver Seas is certainly worthy of an internal inspection and the accommodation, with approximate dimensions comprises;
