6 Bedroom Detached House For Sale in Landcross, Bideford, Devon

6

A substantial six bedroom, four reception room Grade II listed period house with 3 bedroom cottage with scope for dual-occupancy or rental income, 2.75 acres of gardens including 1.

This most attractive Grade II Listed character house is located at the end of a private drive, conveniently close to the town of Bideford, in the hamlet of Landcross.

The property is beautifully presented throughout retaining many of the attractive original character features including fireplaces, shuttered windows and panelled doors and it has been much improved by the current owners with a recent modern kitchen with AGA and the whole house benefits from a tasteful fresh neutral decor and gas central heating.

One of the most notable changes is the conversion of an adjacent stone built coachmans cottage into a delightful 3 bedroom home, which could be ideal for anyone looking for dual occupancy or for rental income from either long term or holiday rental.

The main house offers extremely spacious and well-planned accommodation over two floors and there are pleasant views over the gardens and grounds that are a paradise for any keen country lover.

The property is approached by a sweeping gravel drive up to the house and there is plenty of parking space outside as well as a double car port and single garage.

At the front of the house is a pretty covered porch built with timbers from HMS Revenge, with flagstone paving and the front door opens into a welcoming entrance hall with wide plank flooring and tall windows allowing plenty of natural light to flood in.

There are four reception rooms, a study and the kitchen on the ground floor.

The spacious drawing room has a fireplace with wooden surround with a wood burning stove inset and there are tall windows with views of the front garden.

The dining room is also a generous size and has a fireplace with surround and coal effect gas fire. There is a cosy snug, also with a wood burning stove, a good size study with a door through to a cloakroom wc and a breakfast room adjacent to the kitchen with a cast iron stove with coal effect gas fire.

The attractive kitchen is fitted with a range of Shaker style eye-level and base units with solid granite work tops and undermounted double bowl ceramic sink. There is a mains gas fired twin hot plate AGA with double ovens and integrated appliances including a dishwasher, larder fridge and a freezer. Adjacent to the kitchen is a walk in pantry and separate larder and there is a door out to the cobbled courtyard and an outside gardener's/ pool wc.

The main staircase gives access to six well-proportioned double bedrooms accessed from a long split level landing, there is a family bathroom and a separate shower room. The large master bedroom has lovely views over the gardens and includes a wall of floor to ceiling wardrobes and there is also a spacious ensuite bathroom.

Bedrooms two, three and four have built in storage and views over the gardens and bedrooms five and six, overlook the rear courtyard.

OUTSIDE
The splendid and well-tended gardens surround the house on three sides and are predominantly south and west facing. They have been designed over many years with slight differences in levels with various paths leading from one area to the next. There is a patio close to the house, there are stone retaining walls and established hedges creating many secluded areas with different aspects. The whole garden is filled with a multitude of trees, saplings, shrubs and flowering plants and there is an area of natural woodland, a lovely pergola with terrace ideal for alfresco dining and views toward the orchard which contains a variety of fruit trees.

At the end of the garden is an enclosed paddock approaching 1.5 acres with fine views over the surrounding countryside and a separate access gate from an adjacent road.

The 30' x 15' swimming pool is on the eastern side of the house with a maximum depth of 5'6" and it is surrounded by patio, lawn and raised flower beds. There is also a large Victorian greenhouse overlooking the pool large enough for any keen gardener.

At the back of the house is a beautiful secluded cobbled courtyard with a row of single storey outbuildings including a utility/pool plant room with space for a washing machine and tumble dryer and this houses the gas boiler for heating the pool and the filters. There is also a log store and pool store and a secured side door leads onto the lane

THE COACHMANS COTTAGE
Adjacent to the main house and overlooking the cobbled courtyard is the thoughtfully converted and attractive stone built coachmans cottage. This provides an ideal opportunity for anyone looking for a dual occupancy property or to generate income from either holiday or long term rental as it is currently used for.

The accommodation is over two floors and on the ground floor is an entrance hall, with stairs leading up to the first floor.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of attractive oak fronted units with oak worktops, with an integrated 5 ring gas hob with extractor hood over and electric oven beneath. There is also a built-in dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer.

The spacious living room benefits from a cast iron stove with coal effect gas fire and double doors open out onto the courtyard. A door leads through to a good size dining room also with doors to the courtyard and another set of stairs lead to the bedrooms upstairs.
