DESCRIPTION
A fantastic opportunity to acquire this period, double fronted mid terraced cottage, located in the pretty 'old town' at the very top of the High Street, a short walk away from Bideford town centre amenities.
Believed the date back to 1823, the property presents colour washed rendered elevations beneath a slate tiled roof. It falls within a conservation area and along with the cottages neighbours within the terrace, has been grade II listed for historical importance (For more details visit www.historicengland.org.uk - REF: 1292913). The property has all mains services connected and has been repainted throughout with all the front widows recently replaced to handmade wooded double glazed sash windows.

ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is simply arranged over two storeys comprising open plan sitting room, kitchen and useful utility room which has been previously used as a garden room. The staircase, from the kitchen, rises to the first floor landing with modern gas boiler and doors to the two decent sized bedrooms and bathroom.

OUTSIDE
Externally, there is a small courtyard garden to the rear enclosed by exposed and rendered stone walls with a storage shed. To the front, there is a wrought iron enclosed raised front patio with space for a bistro table and chairs.

There is no parking for the cottage, however moments from the property is the council owned Pannier Market (Honestone Street) Long Stay Car Park, EX39 2DJ which we understand residents' permits can be purchased.

RESIDENTIAL LETTINGS
We have been informed that the property could achieve a monthly rental of £550 PCM as a residential letting property.
Based on this rental income, on a purchase price of £159,950, the gross rental yield would be 4.1%.

We believe the property would make an ideal first time buy, retirement home or investment.
