An outstanding period house and focus in the centre of the village with quaint and original features, carefully renovated by the current owner to maintain its uniqueness and charm.

The house comprises three bedrooms (one en suite), three reception rooms, bathroom, downstairs cloakroom, utility and separate pantry. Large private garden with summerhouse with Tamar river boundary, and a large single garage and additional parking.

The house enjoys views across the garden and river to the fields beyond. The garden has mature trees, being mainly laid to lawn and attracts much wildlife. We understand that the river is maintained by the Environment Agency against flooding.

There is additionally an adjacent detached redundant building with planning potential, as well as planning potential in the garden subject to planning consents.
We understand the local schools are considered to be very good, and the village attracts commuters to Plymouth, as well as Bude, Launceston and Holswort

Directions From Bude proceed out of the town towards Stratton and upon reaching the A39 turn left signposted to Bideford. Proceed for approximately quarter of a mile and take the right-hand turning signposted Holsworthy. Follow this road out of Stratton until reaching Red Post and turn right towards Launceston. Take the third left-hand turning signposted Bridgerule and as you enter the village the property will be located a short distance along on the left-hand side.

Outside The property is situated in the heart of the village of Bridgerule with a gravelled front path, side access and a small area to the rear allowing for deliveries of the lpg propane gas cylinders.

On the opposite side of the lane is a large enclosed private garden running down to the river Tamar with views over surrounding fields and woodland. The garden has mature tree boundaries, apple trees, and is mainly laid to lawn centrally, with a large summerhouse close to the river. There is an abundance of wildlife in and around the garden and river making it particularly attractive to naturalists of all kinds. We understand the fields opposite the Tamar river are managed by the Environment Agency in flood protection and as such development is highly unlikely. A previous uplift on the Tamara garden, having recently expired, frees a future owner to pursue potential development of the site, subject to planning permission with the local authority and the Environment Agency.

Summerhouse 9' x 9' A useful large timber summerhouse with internet and telephone access. Would be particularly attractive as an artists studio, or for hobbies and birdwatching as well as a quiet and private office

Outbuilding To the side of the property is a redundant outbuilding, which has potential for separate dwelling, or attachment to Tamara, subject to planning permission from the local authority

Garage & Parking There is an area of hard standing off-road parking laid to concrete, which then leads into a large detached timber framed single garage, with window and pedestrian door to the side leading out to the garden.
