Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Gables is a stunning Grade 11 listed Victorian Villa, standing in just over a quarter of an acre, situated within a kilometre of the sea. It has benefited from extensive upgrading having been rewired and re plumbed within the last 20 years and having a new central heating system installed in 2014. The property offers incredibly well balanced living space that is superbly laid out for family living or entertaining, not to forget about the huge amount of natural light that the rooms enjoy due to the garden and frontage. The property mirrors its superb location and arguably offers any growing family everything they could wish for. Unlike many of its counterparts, this spacious and flexible home successfully manages to blend contemporary touches alongside character and practicality.

The lay out of the property lends itself for multiple uses. The present owners have divided the ground floor to provide a two bedroom two bathroom holiday let with its own entrance but this could be easily reversed.

The property has some wonderful views and is located both close to the town centre and sea front. The property has many original features including cathedral style windows, ceiling roses, stone quoins, and ornate gables from which is derives its name. Externally the property is accessed by a pillared entrance and has a matching stone built gate lodge with light and power, there is also a lean to greenhouse and three good size sheds. In the corner of the large car park is a Gas Governor for which the owners receive a fully transferable site rental, parking for several cars and room for a garage, garden with many mature trees. The whole property is walled and fenced and extends to just over a quarter of an acre. There is a walled private courtyard accessed from the holiday apartment. The national cycle route passes by the front gate. Ilfracombe is a popular North Devon town offering a variety of excellent restaurants, shops, schools and public houses. It is surrounded by some of the most breath-taking scenery in Britain. The South West Coast path passes through the town and across the Torrs to Lee Bay. In addition to Ilfracombes beaches, there are also excellent surf beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton. The regional centre is Barnstaple which is approximately 15 mins drive, with links to the A361 link Rd and M5.
