Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Being offered to the market for the very first time since its construction 39 years ago by the present owners is this individual detached 3 Bedroom property with a large Detached Workshop. The house occupies a slightly elevated position in the centre of its plot meaning it has full access all the way around to all four sides. Two generous driveways with a "drive-through" Garage allows vehicles to pass from the front to the rear gates without leaving the property boundary. Many of the rooms are dual aspect allowing for an abundance of sunlight to enter the house throughout the day. The stone-built Detached Workshop of just under 500 square feet could suit a multitude of purposes and currently has unrestricted use. The small and whimsically named hamlet of Fairy Cross is on the outskirts of Bideford and within a stone’s throw of local amenities and conveniences whilst being nestled within the North Devon countryside. We would encourage an early viewing of this one of a kind and much loved property.

Fairy Cross is a small village in the parish of Alwington situated west of Bideford along the Atlantic Highway (A39). It shares local amenities with nearby Bucks Cross, Hartland, Woolsery and Bideford.

Fairy Cross has an active village hall built in 1933 and it’s regularly used for all manner of activities including dances, concerts, weddings, coffee mornings, and barbecues. Other buildings of note are the Methodist Chapel, which celebrated its centenary in 1997, and the old Alms Houses at Ford. Fairy Cross also has two unique structures which stand proud on each side of the Atlantic Highway. They are, perhaps, the most ornate bus stops in the whole UK?

Sitting astride the Atlantic Highway (A39), Fairy Cross is well served by the main feeder route across the region leading to Wadebridge in Cornwall to the south-west and to the M5 by Tiverton in the east. A bus service provides access to North Devon’s ‘capital’, Barnstaple. Bus users can also reach Westward Ho!, Bideford, Braunton, Appledore, Croyde, Okehampton, Holsworthy, Great Torrington, Hartland and Ilfracombe.

From Bideford proceed along the A39 in the direction of Clovelly / Bude passing straight over the roundabout at Abbotsham Cross. Take the second left hand turning signposted Woodtown. Turn immediately right and the road will bear around to your left. Turn right into Portledge Place and continue to the end of the cul-de-sac where the timber gated driveway for Glendaryock will be found towards the end on your right hand side.
