Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The area of Clovelly including the famous fishing village itself is steeped in history, the Clovelly estate appearing in the Doomsday Book and at that time being owned by the King of England. Apparently the estate has been associated with just three families since the middle of the 13th century, a period of nearly 800 years. Clovelly is located only 2 miles away, known for its steep cobbled pedestrian main street and donkeys that give children rides on sledges that were used to transport goods throughout the village.

This very attractive detached character property is believed to date to the 18th century and has been lovingly maintained by the current owner to provide a charming and beautifully presented home.

There are many attractive character features inside and the property is decorated in pleasing neutral colours with lovely views over the gardens to the front as well as over surrounding countryside, with the coast visible in the distance from some rooms.

There is an entrance/storm porch at the front leading into the impressive open plan kitchen dining room which has natural slate flooring and a beamed ceiling. At one end of the room is the kitchen which has a substantial inglenook fireplace with large wooden beam above and an oil fired Stanley range inset. There are attractive country style painted units, wood worktops with an inset Belfast sink and a wide tiled dividing unit with storage under. At the other end of the room is space for a large dining table.

A door from the kitchen opens to a passage which leads to a rear entrance lobby. There is a good size utility/kitchen with built in storage units and space for a cooker, washing machine and fridge freezer and there is also a bathroom with white 3 piece suite.

The spacious double aspect sitting room has two pairs of doors opening to the front and rear gardens, natural slate flooring and a lovely part exposed stone feature wall.

On the first floor is a landing with space for a work station and access to a useful under eaves storage void, there are three bedrooms and a lovely shower room.

A particular feature is the master bedroom, which has a vaulted ceiling with beams, built in storage and double doors that open to a covered balcony with views over a secluded part of the garden.

Bedroom two also has built in storage and a fixed wooden ladder leading up to a very useful attic room with superb far reaching views.

Outside, the gardens surround the house and there is a level lawn at the front surrounded by mature trees and hedges, there is a wildlife pond and steps down to a secluded area by the sitting room doors, ideal for alfresco eating.
Behind the house is a low stone building divided into three useful store rooms, there is plenty of parking space and the gravelled drive splits in two so that the barn has its own space.


THE BARN
Separate and secluded enough from the main house is an attractive and thoughtfully converted two bedroom stone built holiday barn, ideal for generating income from holiday letting. It was converted around 2015 to a very high specification with under floor heating downstairs and plenty of natural light flooding in.

Downstairs is a large dining hall, a spacious double aspect living room with doors out to the front and rear gardens and a kitchen with modern units with wood block work tops incorporating a Belfast sink, there is an integrated electric hob, oven, dish washer and fridge.
There is also a luxury bathroom with freestanding double ended bath.

Upstairs is a wide landing with built in cupboards and two double bedrooms with built in wardrobes, the master bedroom having a luxury ensuite bathroom.

The barn has its own secluded private garden bordering open fields with far reaching views to the coast.
