With over 40,000 inhabitants including nearby villages, Barnstaple is a thriving town near to beautiful beaches and countryside, and the centre of North Devon in commerce, culture, education and service provision. It has a wide variety of businesses attracting tourists and permanent residents year-round, including a vibrant and diverse collection of bars and restaurants for evening footfall. Barnstaple is easily reached via the A361 which leads to the M5 at Junction 27, has a station with hourly trains to Exeter at peak times, and Exeter airport is an hour away. The town is rapidly expanding with several new housing and commercial developments currently underway, and more than 5,000 new houses and further economic development planned for the near future. The notable towns of Bideford (9 miles), Woolacombe (14 miles), Ilfracombe (12 miles), South Molton (12 miles) and Torrington (14 miles) are also nearby.


The subject property is within Victoria Road, just off the roundabout close to the Town's Ford car dealership, although the property is in a primarily residential.  A key attribute of the property is that it is a short level walk to the Town Centre, Rock Park and River Taw.


Probably dating to the Victorian era the substantial edge of Town property has been well maintained by our client during her 15 year ownership.  Many period features remain with the property including ceiling roses, cornicing and picture rails whilst also benefiting from double glazing and central heating.  Currently configured as 7 bedrooms on ground, first and second floors with kitchen and lounge with a decked balcony there is also a self contained apartment at lower ground floor consisting of 3 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen and a recently constructed modern light living room overlooking the garden.  There is off road private parking to the front as well as an additional space to the rear, within the garden which also houses a detached office building.  Internal inspection of the property is recommended.


Our clients are inviting offers for the Freehold interest.


Having formerly been operated as a Bed and Breakfast the property has more recently been utilised as a Supported Living premises (with a current HMO licence) although it is thought the property suits a wide variety of alternative uses such as a large single dwelling, holiday let, Air B&B etc.
