Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Riverside Cottage is one of those truly unique & individual properties that doesn`t become available every day. Not only does this stunning property make a dream riverside home, with a proven commercial track record, the property makes an excellent investment opportunity as a substantial self catering holiday let.

Location, Location, Location
Taking nothing away from the house, the outside space is a must see. From various private patio seating areas that take full advantage of the beautiful setting, to areas currently used as a small holding with goats, donkeys & ponies in residence. There are several areas of access onto the water, perfect to launch a kayak or to cast a fishing rod from. In all, the gardens & grounds extend to approximately 2 acres, with huge potential to create further amazing outside spaces if required.

The current owners over the last 12 years have used the property for different business ventures, most successfully a bed & breakfast, whilst in recent times using the whole property as a self-catering venue.

Three separate parking areas provide flexibility for parking to the both the house & the apartment, with one area of off road parking being particularly large, able to accommodate a number of vehicles for guests & visitors.

The property has been well maintained by the current owners and will be found offering good sized & adaptable accommodation. On the ground floor a large 20` x 16` lounge takes centre stage, directly overlooking the river with access leading to a covered outside seating area. Two further reception rooms are currently used as a large dining room & a 6th bedroom, whilst a good sized kitchen, utility room & cloakroom will all be found to be good sized spaces.

On the first floor, 4 double bedrooms, all with en-suites will be found with the impressive master bedroom benefiting from a large balcony, directly overlooking the river.

The studio apartment sits beneath the garage overlooking the river & offers modern well appointed accommodation with a sitting room/kitchen and a good sized double bedroom with extensive fitted wardrobes & en-suite shower room. Within a 12 month period, the apartment generated a holiday let income of circa £12,000.

The 16` x 16` garage benefits from an adjoining good sized 13` x 6` office with separate WC, perfect for those seeking some work space away from the main house (if you can draw yourself away from the office window that looks directly over the river).

Located close to the Tarka Trail which is popular with walkers & cyclists providing a beautiful stretch to both Barnstaple & Torrington whilst the port & market town of Bideford is within a mile, being very accessible by car or foot. Bideford offers a good choice of shops, amenities & facilities, whilst the long sandy beach of Westward Ho! is within 4 miles & is home to the oldest golf course in the country, The Royal North Devon. The regional centre of North Devon, Barnstaple is approximately 11 miles away via the A39 link road, which in turn provides access to the M5 motorway network at junction 27 (within an hour`s drive).

From Bideford Quay, proceed out of the town towards Torrington on the A386. After approximately 1 mile, the property will be seen on the left hand side with a ‘For Sale` board clearly displayed.
It is advised to pass the property (on your left) and continue down the 2nd driveway, where at the end of the long access drive, ample parking & turning will be found.
