Waffapool provides an exciting opportunity to own a property ideal for anyone with equestrian or smallholding interests or the need for dual occupancy, with the added bonus of potential rental income from the attached 1-2 bedroom annex.

The main house has been thoughtfully extended and upgraded in recent years retaining much of the original character with the addition of a number of very useful modern outbuildings close-by and there is an impressive American-style stable block adjoining the pasture.

The property is set in the midst of wonderful open countryside approximately 3.5 miles from the popular village of Buckland Brewer, 12 miles from Bideford Town and about 6 miles from the stunning Atlantic coast.

A long drive shared by only two other properties opens to a large parking area which gives access to the outbuildings, sand school, stables and land.

The main house has an entrance lobby opening to the hall and there is a dining room with beamed ceiling, a fireplace and a currently closed-up interconnecting doorway through to the adjoining annex.

The cosy reception room has a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven and the superb 30' kitchen dining room provides an extensive range of oak fronted eye level and base units with pull out larder cupboards, long worktops with undermounted Belfast sink, a Rangemaster American fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

Double doors open to a large conservatory overlooking the rear of the property and with views of the stables and sand school and also from the kitchen is a good size utility room with original flagstone floors, built in cupboards and a Belfast sink, there is also a large modern shower room.

Upstairs is a generous master bedroom suite with walk-in wardrobe and well-appointed ensuite bathroom including jacuzzi bath. There are also two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a family bathroom with underfloor heating.

Outside at the rear is a large level lawn area backing onto open fields and at the side a gravelled area with fish pond.

The attached annex has been successfully let out on a long tenancy for £550.00 per month and has its own entrance. Downstairs provides a kitchen, a dining room with fireplace and blocked up doorway to the main house, a large sitting room or possible bedroom, a shower room and upstairs a 19' bedroom with under eaves storage. Outside is a level and secluded private garden.

Opposite the main house is a level tree bordered garden area with greenhouse that could be an ideal vegetable plot.

Next to this is a 12' x 12' stone building with light and power formerly used as a gym.

The modern outbuildings opposite the main house are of a corrugated metal construction and provide a 30' x 23' garage with double electric doors, a 22' x 14' games room a 45' x 35' workshop fully kitted out with work benches and storage cupboards and there is also a 14' x 11' office with telephone connections.

Leading from the main parking area is the 55' x 38' stable block which comprises of four loose boxes and two foaling boxes, a tack room and a large concrete yard with power, light and water. The 147' x 65' sand school is adjacent to this with post and rail fencing.

The 4 acres of pasture is accessed from beside the stable block and this has been divided into separate paddocks with post and rail fencing and there is also a field shelter.

Bordering the paddocks are approximately 7 acres of mature woodland containing an abundance of wildlife, there is also a small wildlife lake.
