Croyde Hoe is a former Coach House believed to have been constructed in 1850 and is set in a private and peaceful location. During the current period of ownership the property has been through a comprehensive programme of sympathetic refurbishment and improvement throughout, with no stone left unturned. The result is a beautifully presented four bedroom family home finished to an incredibly high standard. The property is accessed via a long driveway and is completely hidden from view. The plot is surprisingly large (over half an acre) with a sunny garden as well as wooded areas. ACCOMMODATION
The property is entered on the ground floor into the reception hall with Italian stone flooring and a feature fireplace opening. Off the reception hall is a useful store room. From the inner hall stairs rise to the first floor where you will find the reception accommodation. The sitting/dining room, with American Oak flooring, is a spacious and airy room thanks to the beamed, vaulted ceiling and many windows. There is a wood burning stove to one end, and French doors lead to the terrace and garden. The new kitchen has a quality range of fitted units with a granite work top plus breakfast bar, and Italian stone flooring, also used in the hallway. The gas fired AGA is complemented by an induction hob plus eye level oven and microwave. There is an integrated dishwasher and fridge/freezer. The room is flooded with light by the roof lantern light window and French doors give access to the terrace area for easy al-fresco dining. Between the dining room and kitchen is a hallway with a door to the rear, off which is the utility room with further storage and space for stacked washing and drying machines.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 are on the first floor, both generous double rooms. Bedroom 4 has far reaching views over the Juliet balcony through the French doors. A modern family shower room serves these bedrooms. The master and second bedroom are on the ground floor, again both are generous doubles, the master has a modern en suite bathroom, and there is a WC on this level. Bedroom 2 is currently used as a snug although there is potential to create an en suite in the adjacent store, or even a kitchenette and bathroom to create an annexe (subject to planning regs).GARDENS & GROUNDS
The property is privately and quietly set in just over half an acre of grounds and is accessed along a winding, tarmacked driveway to the gravelled parking area which leads to the double garage.
