Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Keswick House is a substantial semi-detached and extended Victorian Villa situated in the favoured Torrs area of the town which is close to both the high street and sea front. The property has extensive accommodation arranged over three floors and considered ideal for the larger family, dual family or multi-generational family living or for use as a Bed & Breakfast or small Hotel (subject to any necessary consent). The property is currently used as a large private residence but we understand has been utilised as a Bed & Breakfast in past years.

The property does require some modernisation and updating but does benefit from gas central heating and is mainly uPVC double glazed. There is the considerable benefit of plenty of off road parking with a private drive at the front and a much larger parking area at the rear and in all having space for 6-8 vehicles.

At present, the property is used as a private home but the size and facilities within the property does lend itself to other Commercial uses as well although formal consent may well be required for any specific changes. There is a fire alarm system and emergency lighting installed within the property.

Keswick House is located approximately 1/4 mile from the high street which has a variety of small independent shops as well as supermarkets such as Co-Op and Lidl. There is also a larger Tesco supermarket approximately 1 mile away. The picturesque sea front and harbour is also just 1/2 a mile away and there is the local Landmark Theatre, cinema, the famous Tunnels Beaches and Wildersmouth beach all close by. Renowned artist Damien Hirst has had huge influence over the town in recent years and has a 60ft bronze ‘Verity’ statue standing on the pier attracting plenty of curious visitors to the town. There are also many good restaurants including the recently awarded Michelin starred Olive Room. The town’s schools for all ages are also within easy reach.

Ilfracombe has some fabulous local walks and Keswick House takes full advantage of that being situated immediately adjacent to the Torrs Walk which enjoys some outstanding coastal scenery and is ideal for a leisurely stroll or dog walking. The property has direct access on to the Torrs Walk from the rear car park.

The accommodation is particularly flexible and could be arranged in a variety of ways depending on how you wish to use the property. The ground floor comprises large reception rooms which include a 36ft x 15ft sitting room, a 27ft x 14ft lounge and a 19ft x 11ft dining room. All three rooms enjoy a pleasant open outlook over the town. There is a large kitchen and utility/food preparation area at the rear and a rear lobby gives access to a boiler room and a store room and has a door to the rear court yard. There is also a study room which sits to the rear of the 36ft sitting room which also has a door out on to the rear court yard. An inner hall has the impressive wide staircase that leads to the upper floors and there is a door off the hall leading in to a ground floor bathroom/wc.

The spacious first floor landing gives access to 7 bedrooms all of varying sizes. There is also a bathroom and two separate wc's and a walk-in linen store. A door at the rear of the landing leads out on to a bridge access to the rear garden and parking area.

There is a raised tarmaced area immediately in front of the house which provides a sitting area and has flowerbed borders and a holly and palm tree.
