Harrowdene is a gracious, deceptively spacious and characterful terraced Gentleman's Residence situated in a popular location just a short walk from the Sea Front and close the village amenities. The property is in need of general modernisation and updating but has many characterful features throughout. The accommodation benefits from gas central heating and is particularly flexible having 4 large reception rooms on the ground floor as well as 5 large bedrooms on the first floor. The house sits in a large plot with gardens to front and rear and has the considerable benefit of off road car parking.
Combe Martin is a popular sea side village located on the tip of the North Devon Coast and located just outside of the Exmoor National Park. There are amenities within the village which include a variety of small independant shops, a primary school, post office and churches along with a health centre, library and various public houses/restaurants. There is a small beach and plenty of nearby walking across the Hangman Hills and Exmoor National Park.
The property itself has spacious two storey accommodation, there is an entrance porch with an original mosaic tiled floor and a most attractive stained leaded light door and screen which leads through into the wide hallway which has the stairs to the first floor with useful storecupboard under. There is an impressive 16' x 13' lounge which has a bay window to front enjoying good views across the garden and surrounding countryside along with a gas fire and ornate coved ceilings. Across the hallway there is a similarly sized sitting room which again has a large bay window to front enjoying the views of the countryside, a gas fire and ornate coved ceilings. At the rear there is a third reception room which has more recently been used as a ground floor sixth bedroom and has a built-in cupboard and handbasin. A rear lobby at the end of the hallway gives access into the morning room/snug which has a gas fire with back boiler for the central heating and hot water and 2 adjacent cupboards one being utilised as an airing cupboard with the hot water cylinder. At the rear of the house there is an "L" shaped 13' x 13' kitchen and breakfast area which has a range of fitted base and wall units and includes an integrated oven, hob, fridge & freezer. A door at the side leads into a rear porch which in turn gives access to a w.C. And store room. A door at the side leads directly onto the rear garden and a passaway at the rear of the property leads around to the opposite side onto a small courtyard.
On the first floor there is a spacious and attractive split level landing. There are 5 bedrooms in total with the 3 front facing bedrooms enjoying views across surrounding countryside whilst the bedrooms at the rear have an open aspect across the gardens. All bedrooms have handbasin and bedroom 4 has a built-in wardrobe. Leading from the rear part of the landing there is a separate w.C. Along with a large bathroom which comprises a walk-in shower cubicle, corner bath, bidet, low level w.C. And handbasin set in a large vanity unit with cupboards under, vanity lighting and mirror over.
Outside, at the front of the property there is off road parking car parking for 2 to 3 cars. Central steps lead up onto a tarmac pathway which leads up through the gently sloping front garden which is laid primarily to lawn with flower bed and hedged borders. Steps at the top of the front garden lead up onto a paved patio area which enjoys pleasant views across the front garden towards surrounding countryside and gives access to the front door of the property and adjacent verandah. At the rear there is a small yard area with steps that lead up onto a terraced garden with garden shed and aluminium greenhouse. The rear garden is currently in a mainly natural state and has a rear access onto a small lane. There is a ladder style access from the rear garden into a large loft area which has light and power. Further access from the rear of the loft room leads into a much larger loft which extends across the entire property and has huge potential to convert if required subject to any necessary planning consent and building regulation approval.
This delightful family home has particularly flexible accommodation which must be viewed internally to be appreciated. There is the added benefit of not onward chain.
