9 Bedroom Equestrian For Sale in Churchill Way, Northam, Bideford

9

A once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this substantial and secluded 5 bedroom character house with attached 4 bedroom annexe directly fronting onto the River Torridge with simply fabulous views both up and downstream and no immediate neighbours.

Boat Hyde and The Moorings is located at the end of a long lane, passing open land both sides with just one other property about half of the way down, about a quarter of a mile away. It is in the popular parish of Northam, the centre of the village being about a mile away from the property with facilities including a convenience store, newsagents, a pub and church and there is a regular bus service to Bideford town and the close-by villages of Westward Ho! and Appledore.

Houses in such unique and private settings are rarely available on the market and the splendid waterfront location affords magnificent views both up and down the River Torridge with the coastal village of Instow seen downstream on the opposite bank of the river. There is even a riverside gun emplacement apparently dating from the Napoleonic War a splendid place for relaxing and viewing the river.

Ideal for anyone looking for a dual occupancy property with scope for equestrian use, it would also provide a comfortable main residence with the option of either long term or holiday rental income from the attached annexe.

The property would benefit from cosmetic improvement but the main house retains many character features, including attractive gothic windows on the front elevation and the principal reception rooms have delightful views across the gardens with river glimpses beyond. The annexe, which is believed to have been added in the 1950's, connects with the main house on the ground floor and has its own entrance.

Having travelled down the shared lane to the house, there is parking space at the side for numerous vehicles and a single garage.

There is an entrance porch at the side of the house leading to the main hallway, from which all principal reception rooms are accessed and there are two staircases leading to the first floor.

The dining room has a door opening to a utility area which includes a pantry and cloakroom, there is a comfortable double aspect drawing room, a well-proportioned sitting room with a fireplace containing a wood burning stove and at the end of the hall, the kitchen-breakfast room. The kitchen contains a range of modern matching units with solid granite worktops, a twin oven electric AGA and space for appliances. Steps lead up to a small conservatory, from which there is access to a pretty garden area with patio ideal for al fresco eating.

On the first floor are four good sized double bedrooms including one with modern ensuite shower room, a further bedroom benefiting from an adjacent bathroom and there is a contemporary family bathroom with double ended bath. Stairs from the landing lead up to a further double bedroom.

THE ANNEXE
The annex ground floor provides three double bedrooms including one with ensuite wc and its own entrance. Upstairs is a further double bedroom, a room formerly used as a kitchen but currently empty, a modern wet room and there is a good sized living room with wood burning stove and sliding doors to a small conservatory with doors out to a pretty garden.

THE GARDENS AND GROUNDS
At the rear of the house is a delightful level garden with pretty flower borders and various established trees and shrubs bordering a patio and lawn, with splendid river views from the end. At one side of the house is a tennis court and on the other, access to further areas of the garden, a pond and a large enclosed vegetable plot with greenhouses and various fruit trees. Accessed form the parking area at the side of the house is a large workshop with light and power and a hard standing area in front ideal for boat repairs. There is access from here through double gates to the slipway, the coastal path and an area of riverside beach.

From Bideford Quay, proceed to the Heywood Road roundabout on the A39 and continue straight across signposted to Appledore, Northam and Westward Ho! Continue along this road and turn right onto the A386 Churchill Way to Appledore. Continue on and you will pass the Northam swimming pool on the right. You will then pass some terraces of houses on the left and then an open area of grass. The entrance lane to the house is found on the right, before the green area ends. There is a sign board with the house name on. Proceed to the bottom of the lane, passing just one other house on the way down.
