9 The Quay is a substantial terraced family home situated in one of the town's most sought after locations sitting immediately adjacent to the picturesque harbour in a mixed parade of shops, restaurants and bars leading down towards the pier. The property enjoys wonderful views over the inner harbour towards Hillsborough and from the rear over the Bristol Channel and rugged coastline towards Wales in the distance.
The property is ideal as a permanent family home or alternatively would make a fantastic holiday home/holiday let with excellent income earning potential. Ilfracombe is very popular with thousands of visitors through the busy summer months and throughout the year and properties in this specific location are always likely to a major attraction for those visitors.
The location is truly outstanding with very few residential properties sitting immediately adjacent to the harbour ever being available. The
house is right in amongst the various shops, restaurants, wine bars and public houses, cafes and art galleries within the sea front area including the recently opened 'Wetherspoon's' public house and the Michelin starred 'Thomas Carr @ The Olive Room' restaurant. Damien Hirst's "Verity" statute stands prominently on Ilfracombe pier and has been the catalyst for a great number of visitors to the town over the past five years. The high street with its further selection of small independent shops and amenities are again just a short distance away and there are schools for all ages as well as Tesco, Lidl and Co-Op Supermarkets.
There is always something to see on a day to day basis as the harbour forms one of Ilfracombe's main attractions and is the area from which the town built its foundations as a working fishing port and hub for importing coal back in the early Victorian era and then latterly becoming a thriving tourist resort thereafter. The sea front area in particular has seen huge investment in recent years.
North Devon has a huge amount to offer with the fabulous golden sand surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton just a short car ride away. The Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach and enjoys some breath-taking scenery and miles and miles of walking. North Devon's main trading centre, Barnstaple, is approximately 12 miles away and has many of the big name shops. There is also a rail link to Exeter which then connects directly to the major stations in London. The main A361 North Devon Link road also connects from Barnstaple and joins the M5 at junction 27.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and benefits from gas central heating. The entrance hall has the stairs to the first floor and opens into the dining room which has a former fireplace recess and enjoys views from the front over the inner harbour. An archway leads through to the kitchen which has a range of fitted base and wall units. At the rear there is a lobby which has a door out on to the court yard garden and also through to a cloakroom/wc which also houses the Baxi gas fired boiler for the central heating and hot water.
Moving to the first floor, the lounge is a particularly delightful bright and airy room located at the front of the house and has a bay window enjoying superb views in to the inner harbour and across towards Hillsborough. There is a tiled fireplace and surround and stripped wooden floorboards. There is a double bedroom which has a built in wardrobe and an ornamental fireplace and at the rear there is a family bathroom with a white suite which includes a bath with shower and shower screen over, a low level wc and a hand basin.
On the top floor there are a further two bedrooms, one at the front and one at the rear, both enjoying delightful views, with the front bedroom overlooking the inner harbour and Hillsborough and the rear bedroom over the Bristol Channel towards the distant Welsh Coast. Both rooms have built in wardrobes.
Outside, at the rear of the property there is a good sized court yard with a flowerbed. The yard leads to a large stone built store. A door at the rear of the store opens on to a further good sized court yard area which also has steps up on to a rear pedestrian access on to Cheyne Beach.
The property has the benefit of no onward chain and we fully advise an early internal inspection as properties in this location seldom come to the market yet are always extremely popular when they do.
