Up Bye has been the subject of some considerable capital expenditure during the existing ownership, who have created a lovely open plan feel to the property with the large 23' conservatory which overlooks the rear garden, opening into both the kitchen and the main sitting room with wood burning stove. To the ground floor there is a bedroom and study with newly fitted shower room which would serve as the en-suite to this room if the room was utilised as a bedroom. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a shower room en-suite. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, all enjoying lovely views over the neighbouring fields to the Bristol Channel & Wales in the distance.
Access to the property is via double gates leading to parking for several cars and there is also a detached garage with power, light and plumbing for a washing machine. The garage can be accessed from the side and it is thought with some capital injection, this could perhaps provide further ancillary accommodation or a useful workshop or similar.
The lawned gardens have mature hedges & trees within the boundaries and the garden itself and are south facing. To the side there is a useful store and there is a small courtyard style garden which has chippings for ease of maintenance.
This property is positioned on the fringes of Woolacombe & Mortehoe with easy access to the 3 miles of golden sands which has won many awards and after just one visit here you can easily see why. Not just because of its beautiful coastline and being a surfer’s paradise but also its easy access to the wonderful National Trust land, with coastal walks and the other surfing beaches of Putsborough, Croyde and Saunton all within easy reach. There is an interesting choice of shops, bars and restaurants in the village. Woolacombe is ideally positioned for investigating the surrounding coast and countryside – from the wild splendour of Exmoor to the natural wonders of Lundy Island, or the charm of the nearby villages of Mortehoe and Croyde. Golfers have a choice of two picturesque courses in Woolacombe itself or can take on the challenging championship links course at Saunton, which is just twenty minutes away by car. There is also an 18-hole golf course at nearby Willingcott.
Mortehoe is a lovely unspoilt village, less than a mile from Woolacombe, with an interesting history, public houses, cream tea establishments, shops and church. It is also the starting point for many scenic walks along the coastal path and just north of the village and reached only by foot, is Rockham Beach, an ideal location for a peaceful day.
The regional centre of Barnstaple offers top high street names and independent stores/boutiques. There is also a leisure centre and indoor tennis centre, a branch line railway station and regional hospital.
Communication links are excellent with the A361 North Devon Link Road providing access to the M5 Motorway at Tiverton. There are regular Intercity Rail services to London Paddington from Tiverton Parkway and a comprehensive range of flights to UK and international destinations from Exeter Airport.
