SITUATION & AMENITIES
Located in the valley of the River Taw, Bishops Tawton is a small, attractive village which is well regarded given its close proximity to Barnstaple, North Devon's Regional centre. The village is surrounded by large areas of agricultural and woodlands and there is access nearby to a maze of public footpaths as well as the Tarka Trail, popular with cyclists and walkers alike. From the site, there are pleasant views from the upper floors of the houses towards open countryside in the distance. The church, across the road, dates from around the 14th Century and the farmhouse next door was a residence of the Bishops of Exeter until the Tudor period. The village also boasts a charming period inn and restaurant, village hall and primary school, all close by. A regular bus service runs to Barnstaple which accommodates the area's main business, leisure and shopping venues, as well as District Hospital. Park School, a secondary comprehensive, lies on the edge of town about 2 miles from this development. At Barnstaple, there is access to the A361, which leads on, in about 45 minutes, to Junction 27 of the M5 motorway and where Tiverton Parkway, close by, provides a fast railway link to London Paddington, in about 2 hours. North Devon's famous coastline and surfing beaches can be reached in about half an hour by car as can Exmoor. There are a number of reputable golf courses also within 30 minutes, including the Championship courses at Saunton.DESCRIPTION
Constructed by Colourcolt Ltd, this exciting development represents a unusual opportunity in Bishops Tawton because new homes in the village are a rare commodity. This very select site will be accessed off a short private 'no through' road and will be made up of just 5 homes which include a pair of two storey 3 bedroom semi detached houses which front the main lane, a pair of three storey 4/5 bedroom semi detached town houses and an individual detached three storey 5 bedroom house. The houses will present painted rendered elevations with double glazed windows, beneath slate roofs all designed with ease of maintenance in mind.. Each property will benefit from an appropriate new home guarantee and a Management Company is to be set up to manage the private road/limited communal areas. The site is to be developed, starting in summer 2020 [Completion summer 2021], with Plot 7, the detached house built first, followed by Plots 8 & 9, the townhouses and finally, Plots 5 & 6, the pair of semi detached at the front of the site. All properties will benefit from a single garage with additional parking space in front of them. All properties will have sufficient garden to enjoy without being too large to maintain.
Given the 3 different types and values of these superb new homes, they are considered suitable for buyers with the following profiles; first time buyers, families, active retired, second home or UK base (as they will be secure and easy to lock up and leave) investors possibly for buy to let or holiday let. People rarely want to move from Bishops Tawton once they have lived there, and so, there may well be an attraction to downsizing or upsizing from within the village.
The vendors are prepared to consider 'off plan' sales and to moving to an exchange of contracts, subject to agreeing long stop completion dates, to be agreed.
Numbers 5 & 6 are the pair of semi detached cottages which each offer accommodation covering 878 sq ft. At GROUND FLOOR LEVEL is an Entrance Hall, Cloakroom, Sitting Room and Kitchen/Dining Room, both these rooms have access into the garden.
