Greenfield House is a well-presented, charming yet spacious terraced family home situated in the heart of the 'picture postcard' seaside village of Mortehoe. The property enjoys superb views over neighbouring National Trust headland towards the Atlantic Ocean and Rockham Bay. Houses in the centre of Mortehoe village seldom come to the market and Greenfield House is considered ideal as permanent home but also would be ideal as a quality second home/holiday let. There is a pleasant rear garden and allocated off road parking area. In addition, there is a further area of garden of approximately 0.05 acres available to purchase by separate negotiation (guide £60,000). This area of garden is linked to the property via a short rear pathway and is ideal as simply an additional garden or, potentially, could provide additional parking or allow for the construction of a garage, if required, and subject to any necessary consent.

Amenities within the village include and variety of small shops and a post office as well as 3 public houses, restaurants and tea rooms. The village itself is surrounded by National Trust land which has miles and miles of walking along some breath-taking footpaths which enjoy magnificent coastal scenery.

The neighbouring village of Woolacombe, famed throughout the UK for is award winning golden sand beach has various leisure facilities and a primary school with an excellent Ofsted rating. There is also a health centre and church, a variety of small independent shops and restaurants and eateries to suit all pockets. The nearby larger town of Ilfracombe is approximately 5 miles away and Barnstaple, which is North Devon's main trading centre is approximately 14 miles away and has many of the big name shops, a rail link and direct access onto the A361 North Devon link road which joins the M5 at junction 27. For keen golfers, Saunton Sands professional golf course (rated as one of the top 100 courses in the UK) is not far away. The neighbouring town of Ilfracombe also has a course with excellent sea and coastal views.

The property has a modern feel but retains plenty of character and charm. There is gas central heating and uPVC double glazing and modern fixtures and fittings throughout. The entrance to the cottage opens in to a dining area which has an engineered oak floor which continues through in to the 20ft x 12ft lounge. The lounge has a wood burner set in a fireplace and hearth which provides a focal point to the room. Double doors open directly on to the rear garden and also enjoy views across the National Trust headland and on to the Atlantic Ocean. The stairs lead up to the first floor and there is a useful store cupboard under. At the rear of the room there is a small 'study' area, ideal for the computer, which also enjoys the views over the garden, headland and to the coast. There is a recently fitted modern kitchen which is a bright and airy room comprising contemporary base and wall units complimented by integrated appliances which include a large hob with extractor canopy over and two ovens under. There is also an integrated fridge and freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and wine cooler.

Moving to the first floor, there are two double bedrooms with the one at the rear having delightful views across the headland and coast. There is a separate wc and a large family shower room which has modern fittings which include a huge walk in shower cubicle with rain drop head shower, hand basin and wc.

There is also an additional large bathroom which has a modern white suite comprising a bath with shower attachment and slate tiled feature wall behind, a low level wc and a hand basin. It is possible to incorporate a small kitchen area on the second floor landing thus creating a space on the top floor ideal for teenage children or potentially for holiday letting or seasonal bed & breakfast.

Outside, there is an enclosed area of garden at the rear which includes a good sized raised paved terrace which enjoys the open views across the headland and to the sea. There is a garden shed and lower area of level lawn. The garden has fenced and hedge borders and there is a rear pedestrian access on to a path way which leads to the parking area for the cottage.

In addition to the garden described above, there is a further area of garden measuring approximately 0.05 acres (206.769m2) at the end of the path way and adjacent to the car parking area. This area is available to purchase by separate negotiation (guide £60,000) and is ideal as additional amenity space or could be utilised for extra parking (up to 6 cars) or the erection of a garage subject to any necessary consent required. Furthermore, at the front of the property, on the opposite side of the road, is an area of garden which measures approximately 0.07 acres (301.289m2) which is on the market separately for £60,000. It is considered that there could be potential to build a dwelling on this ground subject to planning consent. The current owners have taken pre-application advice from the local authority who have visited the site and given a positive response subject to design and parking arrangements.

There are also plans drawn up for an extension to the rear of the property to form larger living accommodation. We understand that the local authority will allow the construction of this addition under permitted development rights. Further details are available upon request.

Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in a westerly direction heading out of town on the main A361 signposted Barnstaple. At Mullacott roundabout take the right hand exit signposted Woolacombe and Mortehoe and continue along this road for approximately 2 miles. Shortly after Turnpike Cross, turn right just before the Fortescue public house towards Mortehoe. Continue along this road for approximately 2 1/2 miles into Mortehoe and upon entering the village turn first right immediately after the post office into North Morte Road. Continue along this road passing the lifeboat building on your left hand side and shortly afterwards you will see a row of terraced cottages on the left. Greenfield House is located in the centre of the terrace. The property has its own parking but for viewing appointments we advise you use the main public car park in the village and walk down to the property.
