This is a very rare opportunity to acquire a generously proportioned, modern, detached home ideal for family occupation and situated in one of Braunton's most sought after locations. This impressive property benefits from breathtaking views over Braunton, the Great Field, the confluence of Taw and Torridge Estuaries and then on to Bideford Bay and Hartland Point in the distance with the ocean beyond. Furthermore, the property backs on to Fairlynch Lane where there are open fields behind playing host to an abundance of bird and wildlife.
Fairlynch Lane is a quiet location forming the very northern edge of Braunton Village and lying parallel to, but very well set away from, the Saunton Road therefore offering very easy access to the renowned North Devon beaches of Saunton, Croyde and Woolacombe. All these beaches are highly regarded, both nationally and internationally, for their superb surfing and water sports facilities. Also at Saunton, there is Saunton Sands Golf Club, boasting its two Championship Links Courses. Being within an easy, yet elevated position from the village, the property takes full advantage of the quite outstanding views, which must be the best that the village can offer and only with viewing can these be fully appreciated.
Braunton is a very sought after village and considered one of the largest in the country which caters well for its inhabitants with an excellent range of amenities. These include good primary and secondary schooling facilities, medical centre, churches, cafes, public houses, restaurants and a good number of local shops and stores.
5 miles to the south east is Barnstaple, the regional centre of North Devon, where a wider range of amenities can be found including The Queens Theatre, the North Devon Leisure Centre, the Green Lanes Shopping Centre, out of town superstores and the Tarka Tennis Centre. There is access to the North Devon Link Road which provides a convenient route to the M5 motorway and its national road links. Also is the Tarka Train Line to Exeter in the south, linking to London (Paddington) and access to Exeter Airport.
Braunton is a thriving, close knit community offering easy access not only to superb sandy beaches but also to the fantastic rugged North Devon coastline from Ilfracombe, around to the stunning cliff tops at Lynton and Lynmouth. This is then the Gateway to Exmoor with its National Park and its superb moorlands.
It is becoming increasingly rare and difficult to find properties offering such a good position and which benefits views which will stay as they are, both from the front and rear elevations and therefore the property must be viewed at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
The house offers very spacious and light accommodation, benefiting gas fired radiator central heating and UPVc double glazing. The entrance porch and hall have attractive solid oak flooring whilst there is a useful hall cupboard and cloakroom. The double aspect Living Room is over 7m long, and again has solid oak flooring with patio doors which take full advantage of the views. The flooring continues into the separate Dining Room, whilst the Kitchen/Breakfast Room has been well appointed with good lighting both in the ceiling down lights, which are well complimented by the internal and under wall cupboard lighting. There is an excellent range of units, 5 ring gas hob, built in double oven and fridge freezer. The view from the sink makes washing up a joy rather than a chore. From the hall there is access to a good sized integral double garage. There is potential to construct a separate garage in the front garden as there is already the benefit of off road parking space, therefore, the integral garage could be used for further accommodation if required.
To the first floor there is a good sized landing with airing cupboard and the master bedroom has built in wardrobes to one wall and a well appointed en suite shower room. To the first floor the master bedroom has quite outstanding open views. There are 3 further bedrooms, two of which are to the front of the property. Also to the first floor there is a good sized family bathroom. The house has a gently sloping front garden which is laid to lawn and offers ample off road parking spaces. There is access either side of the house and the rear garden enjoys the most stunning south facing views already described. The garden here is level with lawn and two small patios to either corner from where to enjoy morning coffee and an evening wine. However, from the living room s a full width attractive slate patio where one can dine al fresco. There are shrub beds with fuchsias, yukka, other shrubs which are easy to look after and provide colour.
This is a fabulous home which is sure to appeal either families or professional couple looking for a property in a very special location and for a property that requires ease of maintenance, easy and efficient accommodation. We thoroughly recommend a fully internal viewing at the earliest opportunity.
