Tenure: Freehold

Oakleigh is a delightful and very spacious semi-detached family home offering flexible accommodation of over 2000ft2 including a lower ground floor reception room and additional shower room which could be used for a variety of purposes. The property is located just yards from Combe Martin beach which offers a rugged rocky cove bay and some fantastic coastal scenery. The village amenities are also within a short distance of the home and include a variety of independent shops, a Primary School, bakery and chemist, health centre and various public houses/restaurants serving food. There are excellent open views from the rear over the neighbouring countryside and into the bay and rugged headland.

The property also has the considerable benefit of off road parking and a pleasant and good sized garden which has direct access on to a footpath with a stream border which gives just a short stroll down to Newberry Beach.

The home has retained much of its original character and charm and has an original mosaic tiled floor in the hallway and a staircase with an ornate spindle balustrade. Within the lounge there is a lovely cast iron and tiled fireplace with a marble surround and mantle over. Several rooms have ornate coved ceilings with the lounge and master bedroom having bay windows and both have access to their own balconies which enjoy the excellent views.

The lower ground floor could be reconfigured to form a separate 'granny annexe' if required and subject to any necessary consent or alternatively could be used as a studio, hobbies room or games room for example, or as an additional guests bedroom which could be utilised to derive an income from seasonal Bed & Breakfast or advertised via the ever growing and popular AirB&B.

An entrance porch at the side provides access from the front or rear of the property and opens in to the main hallway which has an attractive original mosaic tiled floor and the stairs to the upper and lower levels. The 18ft x 11ft kitchen/dining room has ample space for a dining table and chairs and is the 'hub' of the home. There are a range of fitted base and wall units and a built-in oven and electric hob with extractor canopy over. There is a wall mounted combination boiler for the central heating and hot water and further room for a washing machine, fridge and upright fridge freezer. The kitchen has a tiled floor and also has another entrance from the front car parking area.

Across the hallway there is a spacious lounge which has a large bay window to the rear which makes the most of the views over surrounding countryside. A door from the bay leads out to a balcony which enjoys the views down the valley towards the bay and the sea. The ornate cast iron and tiled fireplace with marble surround and mantle over provides a focal point to the room and the coved ceiling adds a further period feature.

On the lower ground floor there is a useful multi-purpose room, built-in storage area and a rear lobby which opens in to a shower room as well as giving independent access to the rear garden. This area is ideal for a variety of purposes and there is the possibility of creating a separate studio unit/flat which could be self-contained with a small amount of alteration (subject to any necessary consent). This area could be used as a 'granny flat' or similar or be let to derive a seasonal income.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a shower room and a separate wc. The master bedroom has a large bay window enjoying the open views of the countryside and towards the sea and doors leading out onto a further private balcony. There is a large walk-in dressing area with a hand basin and the potential to create a full en suite if required. The two further bedrooms are both good sized double rooms, both with hand basins.

The second has four further bedrooms and an additional family bathroom.

Outside, at the front of the property there is off road parking for one car which is a great asset for properties within the village. To the rear of the property there is an attractive and low maintenance garden which has a good sized patio under a pergola with an adjacent small area of lawn, a further paved patio and coloured gravelled area. The garden is enclosed and has a gate and steps leading down to the stream border where there is a footpath that runs alongside the stream which leads down to Newberry Beach.

Oakleigh is a delightful family home with an array of features and flexibility in its accommodation and a full internal inspection is a must to appreciate the size on offer.
Applicants are advised to proceed from our offices in an easterly direction heading out of town on the main A399 sign posted Combe Martin. Continue along this road for approximately 5 miles and upon entering the village proceed down the hill and around the sharp hairpin bend and into Woodlands. Oakleigh can be found just a short way along on the left hand side indicated by our for sale board. Whilst the property has its own off street parking we would advise for viewings following the road along where a car park can be found just before the beach on the left hand side.
