The glorious county of Devon, especially North Devon, is renowned for its dramatic coastline and sandy beaches including Woolacombe, Saunton and Westward Ho! along with open countryside and wonderful rural walks through rural villages like Hartland to farming communities in Exmoor and South Molton.
Luke Williams, of Stags Bideford, comments “it’s never been so popular for movers wanting to escape the cities and relocate to the West Country and, with a large proportion of these buyers approaching retirement, wanting to do without the hassle of having to climb stairs, bungalows are often considered to be top of the property requirements list. They also provide easy access for wheelchair users and those unsteady on their feet. With the UK's population ageing, demand for single-storey homes is likely to grow.”
For those seeking impressive surroundings, Stags are delighted to offer a wide variety of properties across North Devon consisting of over 200 houses, bungalows, cottages, farms, holiday complexes and land. However, bungalows continue to be harder to come by, as seen on Rightmove today; of approximately 500 properties listed for sale, only 15% are bungalows*.
As the Regional Centre, Barnstaple offers the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues, as well as Pannier Market, North Devon District Hospital and bus station. North Devon's famous sandy beaches at Croyde, Putsborough, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Woolacombe, are all within 20 minutes/half an hour by car, as is Exmoor National Park and the Cornish Border.
The accommodation briefly comprises four bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room and garden room. There is a large gated driveway with enough parking for a campervan/caravan or boat, double garage, workshop, enclosed rear garden with level lawns and raised sun terrace that enjoys far-reaching views.
Moor View is situated in the picturesque semi-rural coastal village of Bucks Cross, bordering farmland with countryside and sea views beyond. The property is located a short downhill walk away from the picturesque historic coastal village of Bucks Mills with its dramatic sand and pebble beach, giving access to the rugged North Devon coastline and coastal footpath.
The bungalow is well-placed to take full advantage of local amenities and the dramatic North Devon coastline. The village of Woolsery (Woolfardisworthy) is located around two miles away with a primary school, local shop/Post Office, garage, church, pub and popular fish and chip shop. The port and market town of Bideford is around 15 minutes away by car, along the nearby A39 Atlantic Highway, and offers a wider range of facilities including various shops, butchers, banks, bakeries, pubs and restaurants, cafes, schooling for all ages (public and private), five supermarkets and shopping outlet with retail complex.
The bungalow has been tastefully modernised and offers contemporary, light and well-appointed accommodation. Externally, Moor View is set within a generous plot with off-road parking for 2-3 cars to the front and a delightful garden to the rear that backs onto open farmland.
53 Lyddicleave is located within a popular cul-de-sac and established residential area close to the village which offers a range of local amenities, shops and bus services. From Bickington, Roundswell Retail Park and Sainsburys supermarket are just one mile away and also within close proximity (two miles) is the Regional Centre of Barnstaple.
This deceptively spacious and versatile property is arranged over two floors offering two self-contained elements. The annexe is accessed at ground floor level from either the hallway or kitchen and includes; sitting room, 1/2 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. The core includes a ground floor entrance hall (with connecting door to the annexe), cloakroom, sitting room, kitchen/diner, bathroom and two/three double bedrooms with first floor office and bedroom (loft space offering potential for conversion STPP).
The property could be used as one large single dwelling offering five bedrooms overall or could be used for anyone seeking dual occupation or home with income. Externally, the property benefits from ample parking, tandem garage and a well-established, private garden.
