Located in the popular surfing village of Croyde and within easy walking distance of the beach, this substantial property offers either a great main residence or lovely second home/holiday let. The property faces south, making the most of the lovely sea views and out to the countryside and Saunton Down beyond. There is a detached double garage with studio apartment.
The accommodation layout is ideal for families and for entertaining with the ground floor having a very 'open plan' feel (although there are areas which could be separated to provide individual rooms if required). The main living room has a feature wood burner (which serves both sitting room and kitchen) and doors which open on to the front patio and garden. This room opens into a further reception area and also into the kitchen/dining room which is very well equipped and also has patio doors leading to the front deck and front garden. The kitchen/diner in turn opens into a second reception room, ideal for the children, which has doors opening onto the rear enclosed decked area and the rear garden.
To the ground floor there is an extremely useful shower room with two shower cubicles & w.c. together with a utility area providing sink & space & plumbing for washing machine & tumble dryer (this area is a must for those days spent on the sandy beaches & in the surf!).
Stairs rise from the entrance hallway to the first floor, where there are 4 double bedrooms, two with en-suite bathrooms and one with a lovely balcony - the perfect place to sit with a glass of wine in the evening to enjoy the view. There is also a family bathroom with bath & shower to this floor.
The property faces south with the front garden laid to lawn with some mature shrubs and a very good sized deck with ample space to eat outside or to sunbathe. The driveway extends to the side of the property and leads to the double garage and the lawned rear garden.
To the rear there is an enclosed decked area accessed from the garden and also from the rear reception room (ideal as a children's area). The double garage offers fabulous space for surfboards, bikes and other seaside regalia. There are external stairs which lead to the self-contained studio apartment above the garage which is an extremely good size. This offers a kitchen, seating area and space for a double bed plus a modern shower room.
It is considered that, subject to the necessary planning consents, there is a possibility that this double garage and studio apartment could be altered to provide larger, separate living accommodation with perhaps a lounge & kitchen to the ground floor with bedroom and en-suite over. Alternatively the ground floor could potentially be arranged as an additional studio apartment. Equally as it stands, this studio apartment is ideal for guests. If the main house was to be let, then this studio apartment provides a bolt hole for owners to be able to come down and enjoy all that Croyde has to offer whilst still maximising income potential.
The property is approached over a tarmac driveway which leads to just 3 properties (one new build in front of the property and a property similar to this alongside. As well as the double garage, there is driveway parking, and private lawned front and rear gardens.
