This late Victorian gentleman’s residence was built in 1913 by a timber merchant & is now contemporary in style & is currently run as a hotel, sculpture park, art gallery, restaurant & meeting rooms.
This substantial house has fantastic potential to create a beautiful family home. If income is required it could easily be adapted to serve as both home & business (perhaps maintaining the café/restaurant/gallery either independently or to service the sculpture gardens).
Set in an elevated south facing position within this beautiful wooded valley setting, Broomhill is less than 3 miles from Barnstaple the regional centre of North Devon making it very easy to connect with the motorway network. The renowned surfing beaches of this area are within easy reach by car with Saunton just 10 miles away.

These sculptures remain part of the Broomhill Art & Sculpture Foundation collection and are displayed within the gardens of Broomhill.
