Property description

Tenure: Freehold

The Firs is a sizeable 5 bedroom detached bungalow, constructed circa mid 1980`s and positioned on a generous plot within level walking distance of Bideford Town Centre. The well presented accommodation offers great adaptability and would suit those seeking a comfortable family home or alternatively, a dual occupancy residence.

On entering the bungalow, the hall leads off to the left into a large lounge which has patio doors overlooking the garden and opening onto a patio, whilst an open fireplace provides the room with an impressive focal point. The kitchen/dining room, equally impressive in size, enjoys a dual aspect to the side & front gardens whilst offering a good range of modern cupboards & drawers adjoining roll topped work surfaces.

A useful utility area is accessed from the kitchen, with storage cupboards and plumbing for a washing machine, and in turn leads to the rear lobby and porch which, with it`s orangery style roof, doubles as a small sun room.

2 double bedrooms and a study/bedroom 5 are accessed from the main hallway and are served by a modern bathroom, comprising of bath with shower mixer tap, separate enclosed Mira shower, wash hand basin & WC. 2 further bedrooms are accessed from a rear lobby and are served by a further shower room, giving the bungalow great flexibility and an option for dual occupancy if required.

The large level gardens are a particular feature of the property, being predominantly level and laid to lawn with a fine selection of attractive flowers, shrubs & bushes whilst established trees on two sides form a dense boundary. A good sized patio area adjoining the bungalow provides a great area for entertaining and continues to one side, where a currently sloping area of lawn, with flower & shrubs, offers great potential to create an elevated seating area from which to enjoy views towards the river and countryside. The garden also boasts a timber summer house with adjoining shed, 2 further storage sheds and 7 fruit trees; 2 pear and 5 apples (3 eating, 2 cooking).

The extent of the overall plot is such that there is a possibility, subject to the necessary consents, to build a new dwelling by portioning off the existing garden.

Accessed via double entrance gates, the driveway provides ample off road parking together with a double garage (19`1 x 18`7 (5.82m x 5.67m)) with up & over door, useful roof storage area and pedestrian door to the garden.

Located on the outskirts of the town yet within a level walk to the town centre which offers a good selection of shopping & recreational facilities whilst a choice of both public & private schooling are within easy reach together with the popular nearby Affinity Devon Shopping Outlet.

The picturesque North Devon coastline is very accessible with the long sandy beach of Westward Ho! being approximately 3.5 miles distant and home to England`s oldest golf course, The Royal North Devon. The regional centre of North Devon, Barnstaple is approximately 11 miles distance, whilst the motorway network at Junction 27 of the M5 is within an hour`s drive.
