Chapel Knoll sits in a fabulous elevated position overlooking fields across to Baggy Point, yet just a stone's throw from the centre of the village and the footpath to the beach. The property has previously operated as a successful holiday let but would equally make an ideal family/second home.
The accommodation to the ground floor is currently arranged with kitchen opening to a conservatory to the rear giving access to the garden. There are two reception rooms, a double aspect sitting room to the rear and a further sitting room/dining room to the front. There is also a cloakroom, utility and single garage. (The planning permission extends the living accommodation into this garage see below for further planning information and application number).
Four good sized double bedrooms are located to the first floor (master with en-suite shower room), together with the family bathroom. Wonderful countryside views are enjoyed from both front and rear, towards Saunton Down & Baggy Point respectively.
Driveway parking for 4/5 cars with gated side access to the rear of the property where there is a lawned garden and paved patio area - a fabulous place to enjoy the beautiful rural outlook over the fields and the village, towards the National Trust Ground at Baggy Point.
Planning Permission - North Devon Council 74184
Planning was approved on 6th December 2021 to extend the accommodation into the single garage area to create a ground floor bedroom & wet room. This gives the potential for a separate 1 bedroom annex or would become part of the existing accommodation. Approval also includes new roof overhang to the front, change of external finishing materials, new windows and doors, removal of conservatory and new balcony to the rear. New wall and gates to front boundary.
NB: Projections are available from our sister company Ocean Cottages upon request.
