Property Description

Full description

A classic Grade II Listed Georgian Town House occupying a level central town position with integral garage and driveway parking.

Enclosed porch, reception hall, 30' family kitchen/dining room, first floor drawing room, 4 bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms, utility and studio rooms, attic/office room. Enclosed south facing cottage garden, integral garage and 2 car driveway.

Set within a particularly attractive corner of Bideford and part of the local Conservation area conveniently placed and a short level walk to the picturesque quayside, shopping streets and wide choice of Coffee Shops and Hostleries. 

The Victoria Park and Playing Fields, adjacent Burton Art Gallery and Cafe Du Parc Restaurant are also a short walk away. 

Number 24 The Strand is described within the listing text as one of an early 19th Century terrace of five houses with solid rendered fronts and slate roof.

In addition to the imposing external architectural design internally there are further period features including typically spacious rooms, high plaster corniced ceilings, shuttered sash windows and fireplaces.

There is a reasonably open front aspect that encompasses the Strand Bowling Green and also glimpses through mature trees of the Town's Sports Ground and the home of its principal Football Club.

Car parking is inevitably at a premium within such a central location but Number 24 benefits from a 2 vehicle length driveway and integral garage (currently used for storage).

DIRECTIONS: From our offices at the top of Bridgeland Street continue upwards veering to the right and then turning down into Chingswell Street.  At the bottom turn left into The Strand where Number 24 will be found towards the end on the left hand side. 

SERVICES: All mains connected.  Gas central heating.

COUNCIL TAX: Band B

ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE (EPC): Exempt.
