Full description

North Shore was originally built as a hotel in 1911 and has been utilised for a variety of uses for well over 100 years. It is been a care home, hotel, in the war it was a Red Cross centre for the Rangers as well as being a local maternity hospital for some time.

Currently this beautiful Edwardian house is used as a successful backpackers hostel with plenty of potential to increase and build up this business or a buyer could start an entirely different commercial venture altogether.

The accommodation is arranged with 12 letting bedrooms but with the removal of certain stud walls, the numbers of bedrooms could easily be reduced to 6 or 8 creating a more sensible size for a straightforward guesthouse or for residential use.

On the ground floor the two generous reception rooms are full of character with bay windows and are currently used as a guest lounge and the guest dining room. From the lounge there is access into a sun room and both rooms are accessed off the hall, with original Parquet flooring. The inner hallway has an ornate wooden balustrading and stairwell and a brick fireplace.

The kitchen is well equipped with a range of matching wall and base units with an adjoining pantry for storage. The ground floor letting double bedroom has been redecorated, with a brand-new en-suite facility installed. The owners have a separate office, study, utility, a large living room/bedroom plus a conservatory. They also have access to the rear garden which is a private, secluded area laid to lawn.

On the first floor is a lovely window on the landing area providing light and as you proceed into the main landing area there are numerous bedrooms, with independent washrooms and shower rooms. Stairs lead up to 2 further bedrooms located in the attic which have some good views and could be ideal teenagers den or small annexe.

The lawn gardens surround the property to the front and side with mature trees and a deck area to enjoy the afternoon sun. Ample off-road parking is available to the side in formal parking bays with on street parking also available.

This lovely Edwardian building does need to be viewed to be fully appreciated and although there is excellent commercial scope it also has potential to create a large flexible residential property for dual family or even triple family occupation. The location at the top of Killerton Road is one of Budes best, with easy access to both primary and secondary schools, the rejuvenated canal area which leads to Summerleaze beach and the town centre facilities which include supermarkets, the main post office and a range of independent businesses.

Bude lies on the North Cornish coastline with fantastic clifftop walks and sandy beaches and is accessed off the main A39 Atlantic Highway which leads north of the major North Devon town of Barnstaple and to the south to Newquay and its international airport.
