Situated in a highly desirable location within easy reach of Northam Square and Westward Ho! Village is this 2 double Bedroom maisonette that has panoramic sea views from the Lounge, the Balcony and the main Bedroom. The property was completely refurbished to a very high standard by the current owners in 2012 with the fitting of new Kitchen, an upgraded Bathroom, new floor coverings throughout, new doors and fittings throughout, new individually thermostatically controlled radiators, a new electrical supply box and toughened glass balcony. The Kitchen and Bathroom are of a contemporary style and the whole apartment is presented to a neutral modern standard. The Lounge / Diner and main Bedroom are flooded with natural light and the stunning and uninterrupted coastal and estuary views, including Lundy Island and Braunton Burrows, can be best enjoyed from these rooms. This home has been very well kept and is ready for immediate occupation. The property has the advantage of a nearby Carport, a useful outdoor block-built Storage Shed and unrestricted on-street parking. Thought to appeal as a comfortable permanent residence, an investment purchase or a holiday bolthole, we would strongly encourage an early viewing to fully appreciate the unbeatable views on offer. This home is available with the distinct advantage of having no ongoing chain. In 2020, the current owner transferred the property from Freehold to Leasehold with a 999 year lease. The lease is held by Dolphin Court Residents Association and each new owner becomes an equal shareholder with the other owners. The advantages of the new lease are that arrangements are formalised and the flat is much more easily mortgageable.Northam is a small village, lying north of Bideford and south of Westward Ho! There are many country walks around the village and the outlying areas, including the popular Northam Burrows, Appledore Quay and the nearby Westward Ho! Beach. It has a potted and interesting history filled with Saxon derring-do that’s worth more than a passing look too.

Local amenities include a supermarket with post office, newsagents and take-aways. There’s also a primary school, a health & dental centre and a number of churches in the area. Northam also has a decent public swimming pool and gym too. You’ll never be short of places to eat and drink with Appledore, Westward Ho! And Abbotsham on your doorstep with their cornucopia of restaurants and pubs. Being a coastal village, seafood is high on the menu, fresh from the morning’s catch, so be sure to patronise your local fishmonger, if that’s your thing. Golf enthusiasts will also have cause to celebrate because there’s a great championship course on the outskirts of Westward Ho! Too. Westward Ho! Is also very popular with surfers and body boarders, with many places to get lessons and hire kit for the beginner.

It’s within short driving distance of the Atlantic Highway (A39) that is the main feeder route across the region leading to Wadebridge in Cornwall to the south-west and to the M5 by Tiverton in the east. A very good regular bus services provides access to North Devon’s ‘capital’, Barnstaple. Bus users can also reach Westward Ho!, Bideford, Braunton, Appledore, Croyde and Ilfracombe with ease.

Northam’s local area is teeming with activity whether community groups are your thing or you prefer the outdoor life, there’s something to occupy just about everybody all year around.<br/><br/><b>Directions</b><br/>From Bideford Quay proceed towards Northam passing the Durrant House Hotel on your right hand side. After passing the sign for Northam Town Centre, take the left hand turning onto Bay View Road. Take the second right hand turning into Lundy View and proceed downhill to where Dolphin Court will be found at the bottom of the cul-de-sac.
