The property is situated within one of North Devon's Premier coastal villages, Instow, in an elevated position and when the leaves are off the trees boasts views over the Torridge Estuary stretching from Bideford across to the quaint fishing village of Appledore and out to sea in the distance. We understand that there are beautiful sunsets from Ulmrosa. The property is perfectly situated for easy access to the beach, the Tarka Trail and the amenities that Instow offers including delicatessen/general store/post office, pubs, restaurants and cricket club. The property is also within a short drive of the fabulous beaches of WestwardHo!, Saunton (also with championship golf course) and Croyde. The market town of Bideford is about 3 miles and the Regional Centre of Barnstaple about 6 miles. Bideford sits on the banks of the River Torridge and offers an excellent range of amenities including supermarkets, banks and schooling. Barnstaple offers all the area's main business, commercial, leisure and shopping venues. At Barnstaple there is access, via the A361 North Devon Link Road, to Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway at Tiverton where Tiverton Parkway also provides rail access to London (Paddington) in about 2 hours. There is also rail access at Barnstaple connecting to Exeter aswell as onward connections.

Ulmrosa comprises an individual detached, character, chalet style residence which presents elevations of painted render with many double-glazed windows beneath a tiled roof. We understand the original core was probably built in the 1920s with later modifications and that the current owner has lived there for the last 42 years. The accommodation is generous, spacious, versatile but could benefit from general updating. Externally there is a carport, additional parking, walled front garden and well-tended, colourful and secluded rear garden of good size.

Steps flanked by borders lead down to the front door where there are external lights below the covered porch. There is access to the left hand side of the property through a side gate, to the rear garden where there is an extensive terrace partly covered. The covered area has external lights and a power point as well as a water tap. Rose borders then flank steps which lead down to a sweeping lawn interspersed with some mature trees including horse chestnut and eucalyptus . There is also a gradual ramp down the left hand side of the garden and leading to the lower lawn where there is a large timber garden SHED. The garden is attractively landscaped and displays many specimen plants, shrubs and trees and is generally hedge enclosed providing a good deal of seclusion and privacy. A narrow strip of garden at the very end is not owned by the property but has been continually used for the last 45 years without interruption.

Some of the furnishings and garden masonry/pots are available by separate negotiation if required. Fitted window blinds and curtains and carpets are included in the sale.
