An attractive and beautifully presented five bedroom country property sitting in delightful level gardens and grounds of about 2 acres including a large summer house, with a double garage and plenty of parking, in a splendid rural setting about 11 miles from Bideford Town. EPC RATING E
An excellent opportunity to purchase this attractive 5 bedroom stone built property, thoughtfully converted some years ago from a former barn.
The property was converted with great attention to detail and retains many of the original beams and stonework throughout to now provide a desirable and spacious home.
The property is tastefully presented throughout with oak flooring in many of the rooms, oak latch doors and a stylish shower room.
Decorated in light modern colours, the house also has the benefit of a luxury contemporary bathroom and a lovely custom built kitchen and benefits from plenty of natural light flooding in. The current owners have also added two impressive conservatorys and had triple glazing installed throughout the property.
Located at the end of a driveway shared with two other properties close-by, Owls Hatch benefits from its own electric 5 bar gate with an entry phone system.
There are delightful views over its own extensive grounds and gardens which are predominantly surrounded by established trees and hedges giving excellent privacy as well as having stock proof fencing ideal for keeping in dogs. A gravelled drive sweeps round to the front of the house where there is plenty of parking for a number of cars with access to the detached double garage a small distance from the house. There is also a large yard to the rear of the house for more parking.
The front door opens to a hallway with double height vaulted ceiling and a stylish shower room with underfloor heating. There is a triple aspect reception room with beamed ceiling and walls, a large open fireplace with marble hearth and wood burning stove and double doors to the conservatory.
Bedroom five benefits from being on the ground floor and the study has a door out to the rear yard. A superb custom built kitchen extensively fitted with hand painted eye-level and base units with Cherry Wood worktops, a twin plate oil fired Aga, a five ring Kenwood gas hob and electric oven and space for further appliances. There is also a door to the another conservatory and a utility room with plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Stairs lead up to a galleried first floor landing and the 4 bedrooms including a triple aspect large master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.
Another door from the landing opens to a small hallway with built-in book shelves and to a further two bedrooms, one is dual aspect with built-in wardrobes and there is a further double bedroom. There is also a hatch to a large part-boarded loft.
The luxury family bathroom has underfloor heating, mood lighting, a Jacuzzi bath, separate shower and stone style tiled walls.
