DESCRIPTION
Treharrock is a detached four bedroom bungalow, located in one of the most sought after private residential roads in Northam. Believed to have built in 1958, one of a dozen homes along this exclusive quiet no through road, this is the first time this property has been on the market for over 47 years. This is a fantastic opportunity for the new owner to put their own stamp on and is ripe for extension or development to create a truly spectacular grand designs home, subject to planning permission. The property is unassuming from the private road, tucked away yet situated within an acre of south facing gardens that are not overlooked by any neighbours. The property enjoys the most fantastic river views, looking down to the Torridge estuary with the rolling Devonshire countryside in the distance. Although the property is in need of updating and general modernisation, it does offer tremendous scope for potential extension or development to create a grand designs style home subject to planning permission. The property is being offered with no onward chain. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a truly one of a kind property on a prestigious private road.
