SITUATION AND AMENITIES

Moorings is on high ground within an area of outstanding natural beauty and enjoys superb views over Watermouth Castle, Watermouth Cove and the Channel. The South West Coast path runs nearby and the local Pub, Saw Mills is within walking distance. Village amenities at Berrynarbor are within a short drive as is Ilfracombe. Further afield, there is easy access to Exmoor, North Devon's famous surfing beaches, the Regional centre of Barnstaple and the North Devon Link Road.DESCRIPTION
Moorings presents elevations of reformite stonework beneath a tiled roof, we understand that the existing property was re-modelled probably in the 1960's and is largely in original condition although a conservatory was added about 30 years ago. We anticipate that some buyers may want to modernise although others may prefer to retain the 1960's 'time warp' feel and may even be interested in the 1960's contents, the majority of which are available by separate negotiation if required. The accommodation is versatile and currently arranged as shown on the accompanying floor plan.
However, there is scope to provide 4 bedrooms and 1 reception room or 2 bedrooms and 3 reception rooms or indeed other permutations. Many original 1960's fixtures and fittings are still in evidence including wall tiles, stained glass work, kitchen and bathroom fittings etc.OUTSIDE
