Property description

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a 2 bedroom end terrace cottage which requires modernisation and updating throughout. Offered for sale by public auction on Friday 31st August 2018 at 3pm unless sold prior. The property was originally part of the Clovelly Estate and is situated just to the outskirts of the village and offers views out across Bideford Bay to Lundy from the first floor.

The property is in need of complete renovation and is a period cottage of stone and cob under a slate and turnerised roof. The property benefits from plenty of character features such as large stone fireplace, flagstone flooring, and cobbled pathways.

Outside the property has a front walled garden with a side lawn and benefiting from a garden shed and garage.

The property is within approx. 1.5 miles of the A39 Atlantic Coast Highway which runs westwards from the Port and market town of Bideford on the river Torridge to the coastal town of Bude on the Devon/Cornwall borders. Locally the fishing village at Clovelly with its steep cobbled main street and Quay is some 3 miles to the north as is Hartland, about 5 miles and Woolsery, about 2 miles, between them providing a good range of local facilities, junior schooling, village inns, places or worship, post offices and the like.

Along the North Coast some 3-5 miles north and west of the property is the dramatic North Devon coastline with its steep cliffs, sheltered coves and waterfalls such as Spekes Mouth, Peppercombe and Greencliffe. Some 21 miles to the east is Barnstaple, the administrative centre for North Devon.

Method of Offering
The property is to be sold by Public Auction on Friday 31st August (unless previously sold) at 3pm at The Barnstaple Hotel, Braunton Road, Barnstaple EX31 1LE
