Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Oaks is a spacious, well-presented and much improved characterful detached bungalow situated in its own large grounds of approximately 0.37 acres and located towards the outskirts of the town. Sited on an elevated plot, the property enjoys excellent views to a wide vista taking in the wooded Score Valley and surrounding countryside and over the town and Park Gardens towards the Bristol Channel. There are extensive gardens which are well stocked and offer a good deal of privacy and a garage with electric door and a separate car port. There is also scope for further extension to the property if required and also to create additional parking or to build a garage and driveway at the rear; all subject to any necessary consent.

The bungalow is approximately 1/2 mile from the town centre and is a short distance from the town's Park Gardens at Bicclescombe. There is nearby walking on the Cairn, ideal for dog owners, and the property is close to a local bus route serving Barnstaple and neighbouring towns and villages.
The present owner has made various improvements to the property over their time there and the home presents beautifully and has spacious bright and airy rooms with character together with some modern touches and decorated in neutral tones. There is gas central heating and all of the windows and doors have been replaced with bespoke hand built double glazed units. There are uPVC fascias, soffits, gutters and down pipes and attractive weatherboard cladding all for ease of maintenance. Furthermore, the property benefits from cavity wall insulation. The gardens have been well established and a delightful 50m2 sandstone patio created at the front of the bungalow that enjoys the excellent views.

The bright and airy rooms throughout the property offer a flexible living space. The central reception hall is a large 19ft x 12ft open area with an attractive pitched glazed roof at the front forming a delightful sitting area and enjoying views through the double doors and windows at the front across the town towards the Score Valley and countryside and on to the distant Bristol Channel. There is an engineered oak floor and panelled doors leading off all of the rooms throughout the bungalow. The 16ft x 16ft lounge is a particularly appealing room enjoying a twin aspect and the excellent views over the town to the countryside and the sea. A gas fire set in a modern surround and mantle provides a focal point to the room. At the rear, the kitchen comprises a range of modern base and wall units complimented by black granite work surfaces. There are various integrated appliances which include a Bosch 4 ring gas hob with extractor canopy over and an AEG double oven under, a washing machine, dishwasher and a fridge/freezer with an adjacent pull out larder style unit. There is a further built in floor to ceiling dresser unit, a cupboard with insulated hot water cylinder and a good sized store cupboard with radiator, which also houses the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water. The stripped floor boards give a modern yet characterful feel and there are double doors to the side leading on to the garden.

Across the reception hall are the three generously sized bedrooms and family bathroom. Bedroom 1 is a 17ft long room enjoying views over the town to the Score Valley and countryside. There is a very large walk in store/wardrobe with radiator. Bi-folding doors open on to a side patio within the garden. Bedroom 2 is another larger double room and again has a door leading out on to the side garden. There is an en suite shower room which has a modern white suite which includes a walk in shower cubicle, low level wc and a hand basin. Bedroom 3 is also a double room and the family bathroom comprises a white suite which includes a bath, separate walk in shower cubicle, low level wc and a hand basin, together with tiled walls and floor.

Outside, at road level there is a large garage which has an electrically operated remote controlled roller door providing easy access. The garage has light, power and water. There is also a separate car port providing space for an additional vehicle.

Steps and a pathway lead up through the well-screened front garden which is very well stocked with a variety of mature trees, shrubs, bushes and plants. Across the front of the bungalow is a very attractive 50m2 sandstone paved patio which is a great outdoor living space and ideal for al-fresco dining, barbeques or sun bathing and enjoys the far reaching views across the town, countryside and towards the distant Bristol Channel and Welsh coast. The patio can be directly accessed from the double doors from the reception hall.
At the right hand side of the bungalow is a block built utility room which has fitted base and wall units, space for a tumble dryer, light and power and a further built in store cupboard. Immediately adjacent to the utility room is a good sized garden store which also has light and power.

The gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property and amount to approximately 0.37 acres in total. At the left hand side there is a wide level area of garden which comprises a paved patio which has a glass screen divider providing separation from the front of the bungalow and excellent shelter and a 'wind break'. There is a circular lawn with well stocked flower beds surrounding and a fenced borders. A large rockery stretches across the rear of the bungalow and steps lead up passing further well stocked and colourful flower beds up to a decked area which has an aluminium greenhouse.
The main part of the rear garden is laid to lawn and interspersed with well stocked flower beds, shrubs, bushes, trees and plants and is awash with colour in the spring and summer months. The garden slopes upwards to the level top tier which has a rear access on to Cairnside behind. There is considerable potential to create a driveway within this area or additional parking spaces/garaging if required and subject to any necessary consent.

The gardens enjoy superb and far reaching views to a wide vista taking in the Score Valley and surrounding countryside, the town and the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh coast.

The Oaks is a delightful and individual family home which has excellent facilities and sits in a popular location. We fully advise an early internal inspection to appreciate the size and quality on offer.
