Situated just on the outskirts of Georgeham and within close proximity of the surfing beaches of Croyde & Putsborough, this sizeable plot has a lovely rural outlook and the benefit of sympathetic planning to provide an attractive home plus income.
The planning for the main house provides 3,067 sq ft (285 sq m) of accommdation and provides an impressive entrance/dining hall leading through to a kitchen/breakfast room with walk-in pantry and bi-fold doors opening to the gardens. There is a separate lounge, cloakroom and study/fourth bedroom to this floor. Stairs rise from the entrance/dining hall to the first floor where there is a feature second sitting room to the open landing (with stud walling this area could be enclosed and would provide an additional bedroom of a very good size). To the south sde of this open lounge area, is the master suite providing bedroom, walk-in dressing room & en-suite. On this floor there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The driveway leads down to the two storey garage building which mirrors the design of the main house, with dormer windows to the first floor providing carport for one vehicle (with sliding barn door to enclose if required), shower & wc and studio/office/ancillary accommdoation to the ground floor. Stairs rise to the first floor where there is further ancillary space with french doors & juliet balcony, together with a good sized loft area. Once again, a great place for working from home or perhaps as a space for yoga/gym/crafts or studio as originally intended.
Located in the garden to the north west of the main house there is planning for a circular Garden Retreat or Rotunda of 430 sq ft (40 sq m). This building has the benefit of a wc & wash handbasin and storage facilities. With a separate pathway from parking at the top of the driveway, and planting/division created, this attractive, domed roof building could easily provide income from holiday rental. Equally, it would work extremely well as a wonderful office for those working from home/yoga studio.gym or just an escape from the hubble bubble of life.
The planning for this site has been sympathetically thought through to create a lovely environment in which to live and enjoy this beautiful part of North Devon, The plot is just on the outskirts of Georgeham which has a strong community spirit and where there is a general store for milk & the morning paper, an extremely well respected primary school and two great public houses. These village amenities are all within easy walking/cycling distance (dependent upon your level of fitness and your desire to exercise), as is the village of Croyde where there are bistro's, coffee houses, shops & 3 more public houses.
All in all, this site is considered to be an absolute gem and would provide a great environment in which to live, with the added advantage of income potential as required. As a second home, the main house would command a strong income from holiday rental and projected figures are available upon request from our sister company Ocean Cottages.
All services have been brought to site including a water treatment system for sewage and drainage, and there is fast broadband available in this location very soon.
NOTE: Currenty on site there is a large caravan and temporary building housing a toilet with hot water outside shower and electricity supply, enabling anyone considering self-build or project management to be accommodated on site if required. This caravan and set up is available for purchase by separate negotiation if required.
