The property occupies an open elevated position with tremendous far reaching views over local countryside towards the coast with the Atlantic Ocean and Bideford Bay in the distance and even the coast of Wales can be seen on a clear day.

The house and cottages are presented in exceptionally good order throughout and must be seen to be appreciated.

The main house was built around 1916 and retains many attractive period features as well as benefiting from modern double glazing and oil fired central heating.

There is a generous entrance hall with tessellated tiled flooring and built in book shelves, a utility room and a cloakroom.

The impressive kitchen/breakfast/family room has an extensive range of contemporary units with ample over-lit granite work tops including an island unit with breakfast bar.

The sitting room also has far reaching views, an attractive fireplace and double doors opening to the dining room also with a bay window.

An original staircase leads to the first floor landing which has useful built in cupboards and a loft hatch and there are four bedrooms. The master bedroom has splendid views and a luxury ensuite shower room, with bedrooms 2 and 3 also having far reaching views.

Outside at the back is a generous level lawn with hedge boundary and splendid views over the fields to the coast.
