Situated on the highly sought-after New Road, Instow this is a spacious, detached, 3/4 bedroom family home with further development potential. The property occupies a semi-rural position on the outskirts of the village and takes full advantage of its southerly aspect and stunning estuary and countryside views, whilst being just a short walk to the sea front and main village below.

The property is entered via a covered porchway leading to a large entrance hall on the ground floor level, with a spacious and light sitting room with views, full length windows and doors leading out onto the attractive sun terrace. The kitchen has a range of fitted wall and base units with work surfaces over, and there is an adjoining dining room.

To the first floor the large master bedroom enjoys more stunning views plus an en-suite shower room. The adjoining sitting room/study/fourth bedroom has glazed doors and a juliet balcony overlooking the valley.

Built in the 1970's by Harris', a well known and respected local builder, the property is in good order and has tremendous scope for further extension if required subject to planning permission. There is gas fired central heating and upvc double glazing throughout. The property has to be viewed to fully appreciate its unusual split level design.

The popular village of Instow has a sandy beach, sailing facilities, cricket club and access to the noted Tarka trail for cycling, walking and running. There is a strong yachting fraternity with Instow yacht club itself and also many sporting activities on the river. This attractive village also benefits from 'Johns' local post office/general stores, café and delicatessen, plus well respected local inns and restaurants, a primary school, church and chapel. Instow is within a 10-minute drive of the A39, providing easy access to the M5, and a regular bus service provides links to and from Bideford and Barnstaple with its train station. A ferry taxi operates from the village throughout the spring and summer, providing a direct link across the estuary to the delightful quayside village of Appledore, with its quaint narrow streets and fisherman's cottages. Appledore boasts a small but great range of shops, pubs, guesthouses and art galleries.

The agents strongly advise an early inspection to avoid disappointment.
