Recently refurbished to a very high standard, the property offers to the ground floor a modern kitchen/breakfast room, living room with views across rooftops to the water, a single bedroom and modern bathroom with shower to the ground floor. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms both enjoying panoramic views across the estuary and out to sea.
A paved terrace leads to a good sized lawned garden to the rear and there is an attractive decked terrace to the side, making the most the stunning views. There is off road parking for one vehicle plus a single garage with electric door.
As North Devon, and Appledore in particular, are popular holiday destinations, it is considered that Tainui would make an attractive family home or alternatively provide a holiday retreat/holiday let.
This attractive fishing village with its cobbled streets, rows of quaint houses and picturesque Quay is positioned on the banks of the River Torridge and the beautiful Taw and Torridge Estuary and is surrounded by beautiful countryside with the surf to be found just under 3 miles away at Westward Ho!.
The village has become a firm favourite with the 'foodies' amongst us, with many award winning individual cafe's, gastro pubs and eating establishments providing great places to dine. Amongst them are The Coffee Cabin, where amazing cakes and great coffee are served, The Royal George pub and restaurant specialising in serving fish fresh from the docks, The Sailors Rest (also part of the Royal George Pub) along the Quay front and serving breakfasts & lunches, Johns delicatessen, cafe & grocers with delicious local produce and The Flame Factory which is owned by a local family and specialising in locally reared beef steaks, burgers and pizza's.
With the sea historically at it's heart, Appledore is a haven for leisure boating enthusiasts and has a busy boating season every year including Regatta's and Gig racing. The slipway is in constant use by those launching speedboats, jet ski’s, kayaks and dinghy’s. The Appledore Lifeboat is moored off the point and many fishermen still operate from the Quay. Just across the water is Instow which has a very active Yacht Club. The village also has a very strong arts and crafts community with galleries and creative events organised throughout the year.
The MS Oldenburg can be seen during summer months on its travels from Bideford Quay to beautiful Lundy Island with its wide open spaces and vast animal and plant life, it is a favourite with walkers, climbers and divers alike.
