In an enviable and much sought after elevated position enjoying frontline views over Combesgate Beach below and Woolacombe Bay, out to Lundy. The property is within a Conservation area, backs onto open National Trust owned countryside and the South West Coastal path runs close by. As well as Combesgate, Barricane, Rockham and the main Woolacombe Beach are within walking distance, as is Woolacombe Village itself not only famous for its surfing and award winning beach but also offering a range of shops, restaurants, bars and leisure facilities. The well regarded villages of Croyde and Saunton are both located a short drive away each offering further sandy beaches and in the case of Saunton a popular Championship Golf Course. Nearby Ilfracombe has an attractive Harbour and Exmoor National Park and Lynton/Lynmouth with further dramatic coastal scenery, are easily accessible by car. North Devon's main trading centre of Barnstaple, is approximately 12 miles and offers a wide range of amenities and facilities to include theatre and District Hospital. It also provides transport links on to the A361 (North Devon Link Road) which in turn connects to the M5 at Junction 27 where rail links to London (Paddington in about 2 hours) can be found at Tiverton Parkway. The nearest International airports are at Bristol and Exeter. Schooling is available at Ilfracombe, Braunton and Barnstaple not to mention the well regarded West Buckland School.

This substantial attached (one of a pair) 3 storey residence presents painted rendered elevations with double glazed windows beneath a slate roof. We understand that the property was converted from a former guest house around 2006 when it was also extended and re-modelled. Internal and external decorations have been refreshed in more recent years, many of the rooms have solid Oak flooring and there is gas central heating throughout. All principal rooms enjoy the 'wow factor' which are the fabulous sea views. The accommodation is bright, spacious, tastefully modernised and well presented. The position is perfect as one can enjoy all the local amenities but equally re-treat from them. The property lends itself for use as principal residence, for dual occupation, as second home, UK base. An internal inspection is strongly recommended, there is no upward chain and the majority of the contents are available to purchase by separate negotiation if required.
