An Extended And Much Improved Character Property With A Self Contained Annexe, Private Equestrian Facilities, Outbuildings & Woodland
12 ACRES (stms) - The property is situated in a tranquil rural position along with two other properties, approximately 3 miles from the popular village of Buckland Brewer, which has a good range of local amenities. The property enjoys a good amount of privacy and is only 7 miles away from the North Devon coastline. The current owners have extended the property to provide a versatile and spacious family home with an adjoining self-contained annexe which could easily be brought back into the main house if desired. The property has in the last six years had the extension built, new windows and electrics throughout, new kitchen and bathroom plus a large conservatory added. Externally the workshop barn and garaging has also been rebuilt, so the property is ready to move straight into.
Off the private driveway, the front door leads to the entrance porch, which in turn gives access to the entrance hall with stairs rising to the first floor landing. Off the hall is a dining room with an ornate fireplace (currently not used). The sitting room has an inglenook fireplace with a recently installed wood burning stove on a slate hearth, bread oven and exposed stonework. The kitchen/breakfast room is a superb family orientated room fitted with an extensive range of oak wall and base units with a ‘Rangemaster’ range cooker with an extractor hood over and matching American fridge freezer. The conservatory wraps around the side and rear of the house and has French doors to the garden. From the kitchen a door gives access to the utility room which then leads to the shower room. The first floor landing has a reading area and access to the bedrooms, the principal bedroom having an en-suite bathroom with spa bath and dressing area. There are two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and the family bathroom.
