Property description

Enjoying A sought after location in the favoured village of westleigh - midway between bideford & instow - A modern but nicely matured detached house in need of some updating, set within large corner plot gardens with garage and ample parking together with glimpses of the river torridge in the distance.


Situation


The property enjoys a sought after location in the quiet village of Westleigh which is set above the Torridge Estuary and has a well thought of Pub/Restaurant, Church and Village Hall and is only a short distance from the sandy beach at Instow with its Yacht Club, Supermarket/Post Office/Gallery as well as numerous eating houses and pubs. Both principal North Devon Towns of Barnstaple and Bideford are within easy reach with a good connecting bus service if required. There are delightful walks in the area along the Tarka Trail which runs alongside the River.

Description


Offered on behalf of the owner who has been in occupation for the last 34 years, the property was built in the 1970's and improved since with a Dining Room, Kitchen and 4th Bedroom extension. There is undoubtedly scope for further expansion of the Living accommodation subject to the necessary planning consents. The property benefits from mains gas central heating together with uPVC double glazed windows, cavity wall insulation and extensive roof insulation. There are glimpses of the River not only from the rear elevation but also from the gardens themselves.
