Property description

The Cedars is a high quality brand new development of just three very spacious and imaginatively designed detached chalet bungalows situated in a delightful semi-rural location on the outskirts of the town. All three properties are now completed and ready for immediate occupation with number 1 already sold and occupied.

The property is located in Higher Slade on the outskirts of the town and is approximately 1 mile from the town centre. The development is surrounded by open countryside with the Cairn Nature Reserve also being very close by and ideal for dog walkers. The 'Tarka Trail' is also in the immediate vicinity and provides a cycle and walking track that connects for miles throughout the North Devon countryside. Ilfracombe town centre has a variety of small independent shops as well as larger supermarkets including Tesco, Lidl and Co-op. There are schools for all ages, a Health Centre and Hospital, Theatre, Post Office and Banks. The picturesque sea front and harbour has further shops, bars and some fantastic restaurants including the Michelin starred Thomas Carr at The Olive Room. There is Wildersmouth Beach and the famous Victorian hand carved 'Tunnels' Beach. World renowned artist Damien Hirst's influence on the town has been significant in recent years and there are now many Art Galleries around the high street and the sea front. The pier is home to his 60ft tall 'Verity' statue which attracts many visitors to the town throughout the year. The neighbouring town of Barnstaple is just 12 miles away and has further big name shops, a rail link to Exeter which connects to the major stations in London and direct access on the A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27.

The bungalow has a high quality specification which includes a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. There is modern sanitary ware throughout the property complimented by attractive tiling. There are double glazed windows and doors, gas fired central heating and 'whole home' Wi-Fi system giving wireless access to the internet in every room. The LED lighting adds to the modern feel and floor coverings are fitted throughout ready for immediate occupation.

Externally, the bungalow has a rendered finish complimented by cedar cladding to the front and rear gables and a grey slate roof. There is an integral garage and additional parking for a further 2/3 cars. Number 3 The Cedars has the largest garden on the site which is level and turfed, extends to the side and the rear and backs on to an open field. The garden enjoys a sunny aspect and wonderful views of the countryside.

There is the immediate feeling of space when entering the property in to the 25ft long entrance hall which has an attractive laminate floor. Solid oak doors lead to a ground floor bedroom, the cloakroom and integral garage with glazed double doors opening in to the living room. Stairs lead up to the first floor and have a useful recess under. The heart of the home is the superb living/dining/kitchen which measures a very impressive 30ft x 19ft and has two sets of full height glazed bi-folding doors which take full advantage of the delightful views up the valley and over the neighbouring fields and countryside. The doors slide fully back and open on to a brock paved patio within the rear garden and really do allow the outside to feel part of the home. The kitchen area is fitted with contemporary base and wall units with solid wood work surfaces over and with integrated appliances which include a hob with extractor canopy over and oven under, a dishwasher and fridge. There is also a breakfast bar with three modern hanging lights over and the attractive laminate floor continues from the main hallway throughout the room. Leading from the kitchen area there is a separate utility room which has fitted base and wall units, a sink and plumbing for an automatic washing machine. A door gives access to the side of the property on to the garden.

There is a ground floor en suite double bedroom which is ideal for older or disabled occupants who struggle with the stairs. The en suite shower room has contemporary tiling and a white suite which includes a walk in shower cubicle, low level wc and a hand basin.

Moving to the first floor, a velux style window on the landing allows plenty of day light to flood in. The solid oak doors lead to three further bedrooms and the family bathroom and there is a hatch to the loft space.

The master bedroom is another very impressive and spacious 18' x 12' rooms which has a large window which frames the picturesque views up the valley and over the countryside. There is also access in to a large eaves store area. The en suite shower room again has contemporary fittings throughout. Along the landing is a large 'L-shaped' bedroom 2 which enjoys open views down the valley to the Cairn and countryside. There is a further access to an eaves storage area. Bedroom 4 is a single bedroom which could also be used as a study/office if required.

The family bathroom comprises a modern white suite which includes a bath with shower and shower screen over, a low level wc and a hand basin all complimented by attractive tiling.

Outside, the bungalow is approached via a private gravelled drive which is shared with the other two properties in the development. There is a private parking area in front of the bungalow which has space for 2 vehicles. There are additional parking spaces in front of the garage and also a further allocated space opposite the bungalow which is ideal for visitors. The integral garage has light and power and houses the hot water cylinder and the gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water. A door interconnects directly with the main hallway for ease of access.

There is gated access to the left hand side of the property which leads on to a large and level, turfed side garden with fenced borders, outside light and tap. The side garden leads around to the rear. Immediately behind the bungalow is a large decked patio which is directly accessible from the bi-folding doors from the living room.
