Property description

This substantial property occupies a splendid and rarely found location overlooking fields with sea views in the distance, on the edge of the popular village of Abbotsham which is only about a quarter of a mile away. It is also only 2 miles from the dramatic Atlantic coastline the coastal path and about 3 miles from the town of Bideford and the beach at westward Ho!

One of the cottages has three bedrooms and full planning permission to be used as a residential dwelling, therefore opening up the possibility for dual occupancy.

It would be ideal for anyone looking for a holiday letting business as there are three spacious and well-presented attached holiday cottages to generate income from. Within the 5 acres of gardens and grounds is a 3.75 acre field and there are a number of stone barns and out-buildings that have scope to be converted into additional accommodation, or stabling subject to permission.

The main 5 bedroom house would benefit from some cosmetic updating in places but some of the bedrooms have been recently refurbished, the roof slates were replaced within the last 10 years and the owners extended the property in more recent years to the rear, to add what could be a useful annexe or fifth bedroom.

The owners have also had a range of photovoltaic panels fitted onto one of the barns which generate free electricity and provide additional income by selling electricity back to the national grid.

A gravel drive leads down to the entrance and there is a large courtyard area with the property and cottages facing onto it and two stone barns either side of the entrance.

Accommodation downstairs provides an entrance hall with cloak/shower room and a door to a utility laundry room.
There is a study, a spacious sitting room with slate surround fireplace with a wood burning stove, and an adjoining breakfast room with a door to the kitchen, which has lovely views across open fields and is fitted with matching units including an integrated gas hob, extractor hood, electric oven and grill.
The dining room also has a fireplace and doors out to the rear garden.

At the end of the hall is a door leading through to the potential annexe/bedroom 5 which has its own entrance lobby with deep storage cupboard and an ensuite cloakroom.

On the first floor are four generous double bedrooms all accessed from a wide landing. Two of the bedrooms including the 28' long master bedroom (which has been created from two former bedrooms) have been completely refurbished and decorated and the other two are due to be finished soon. Most of the bedrooms have countryside views and two have views to the coast. There is a also a large family bathroom.

At the rear of the house is a lovely west facing garden surrounded by a stone wall and a separate access gate to the road. At the front is a further large area of garden and a single garage attached at the side.   

The attractive cottages are all well-presented inside with character features including some vaulted ceilings and exposed beams and they all have direct access to their own rear gardens which border an adjacent field.

With full residential permission.
A three bedroom cottage with spacious living room, kitchen, large master bedroom, two further bedrooms and a bathroom.
