The Ridges is a very spacious detached family home of approximately 173m2 situated in a tucked away location close to the Cairn Nature Reserve. The property was constructed around 1980 and benefits from pleasant open views across the town towards the countryside and the distant Bristol Channel.

A particularly appealing feature of the property is the huge amount of garaging. There is a 32ft double length garage as well as a further single garage and a large and useful wine cellar/store. The garages are ideal not only for vehicles but could also be used a workshop or games or hobbies room or potentially be converted to form additional accommodation if required and subject to any necessary consent. There is also a large brick paved front drive, which is accessed via a five bar gate, and which provides off road parking for 2/3 cars.

The property is located immediately adjacent to the Cairn Nature Reserve which has many meandering footpaths ideal for dog walkers. The Cairn also gives access on to the 'Tarka Trail' which is a popular cycle track which connects through the countryside to other neighbouring towns and villages throughout North Devon. The high street is approximately 1/4 mile away and the sea front with its picturesque harbour is just 1/2 mile away. The property is also handily situated for easy access on to the main A361 which leads to Barnstaple and neighbouring coastal surfing village of Woolacombe with its award winning golden sand beaches.

The accommodation benefits from gas central heating and has double glazed windows.

An entrance porch opens in to a spacious 19ft x 14ft reception hall/sitting room which gives the immediate feeling of space upon entering the property. Within the sitting room there is a large airing cupboard a further store cupboard and there are double doors which open on to a large front balcony. There is a spacious split level dining area and lounge. The dining area is located on the upper level and overlooks the lower lounge area which has a large feature fireplace and sliding doors leading out on to the front garden.

The 'engine room' of the house is the large 16ft x 15ft kitchen/breakfast room which has a range of fitted base and wall units and an oil fired Rayburn. In addition there is plumbing for a dishwasher and plenty of room for a family sized table and chairs. At the rear is a useful utility room with further fitted cupboards, plumbing for an automatic washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. A door leads directly out on to the rear garden. Leading from the utility room is a cloakroom/wc.

Moving back through the property, there is an inner hallway which gives access to the 4 bedrooms and the family shower room. The master bedroom is located at the front of the property and has built in wardrobes and a door leading on to the large front balcony. The floor to ceiling window enjoys pleasant and open views across the town to the countryside and distant Bristol Channel. There is an en suite shower room with a modern suite which comprises a walk-in shower cubicle, low level wc and a hand basin with mirror and shaver socket over. Bedroom 2 also has its own en suite bathroom and there is a further third double bedroom. The family shower room comprises a walk-in shower, low level wc and a hand basin set in a vanity unit with cupboard under, mirror, vanity light and shaver socket over.

Bedroom 4, also a spacious double room is located on the first floor and overlooks the rear garden. Within the room there is access to a large eaves store area.

Outside, at the front of the property a 5 bar gate opens on to a large brick paved hard standing which provides off road parking for 2/3 cars. There is extensive garaging integral to the property comprising a single garage with light and power and a much larger double length garage which again has light and power and the gas and electric meters. At the far end of the larger garage is a useful wine cellar/store room.

Steps lead up from the parking area through the front garden which has large flower beds which are well stocked with a variety of mature shrubs and bushes. As mentioned earlier, there is a large front balcony which is accessed from both the sitting room and the master bedroom which enjoys views over the town to the countryside and distant Bristol Channel. There is access from both sides of the property to the rear. A the left hand side of the house is the oil tank which supplies the Rayburn. To the right there is a paved pathway which leads on to the large paved patio which extends across the entire width of the property and provides a fantastic outdoor living area for sunbathing, al fresco dining and entertaining. There is a brick built barbeque and raised flowerbeds.

Steps lead up from the patio to the upper level of garden which is laid primarily to lawn, mainly level and with mature hedge borders. From the top of the garden there are good open views across the town towards the countryside.
