Chequers Estate Agents of Barnstaple are delighted to offer for sale 50 West Yelland a Detached 3 Bedroom Bungalow situated on the parish boundary between West Yelland and Instow.

This Detached Bungalow is certainly something a little bit different as it sits on a surprisingly large plot approaching half an acre and offers an exciting opportunity to be developed further with there being lots of space and obvious potential to extend subject to any necessary permissions.

The Bungalow is set nicely back off the road just before the Parish border of Instow and has a gated entrance approach which leads to lots of Driveway Parking which offers easy parking with enough space for caravans, motorhomes and boats etc.

The property is certainly surprise package and this is highlighted when you look out from the back of the Bungalow and see immediately the impressive orchard and the delightful tree lined Garden.

If you have ever wanted a slice of the good life and been looking to find a Garden large enough to grow your own produce, keep chickens or bees or simply have a large enclosed space for children to play or pets to roam then this beautiful garden will be for you.

This is the first time the bungalow has been on the market for some 26 years and its availability is a rare opportunity to buy a home with such a large Garden so close to Instow and its village amenities.

Indeed to have the Tarka Trail virtually on your doorstep and to have the option of a regular bus service close by confirms 50 West Yelland really is enviably located and will undoubtedly appeal to a wide market.

It is a superb alternative to a brand new estate house where properties are often sat on a postage stamp plot with neighbours on top of you so if you are after something a little bit different you will be impressed with this Bungalow and be excited when you see what it has to offer.

The Bungalow benefits from gas central heating and UPVC double glazing and briefly comprises Entrance Hall, Lounge with a bay window feature, modern fitted Kitchen 3 good size Bedrooms and a Bathroom.

It is fair to say the property in places is ready for some updating, that said it offers exciting possibilities to be transformed into something quite special.

The position and plot size really does lend itself for the bungalow to be re-modelled and if so desired a contemporary twist could be added which could further make the most of the wonderful Garden and non estate position.

Barnstaple the regional centre for North Devon is some 6 miles away and here there is a wide selection of shops and leisure facilities as well as a train and bus station.

If 50 West Yelland sounds of interest please contact Chequers Estate Agents of Barnstaple on or email and we will be happy to help with any enquiry.
