Channel View is a most attractive detached family home offering delightful accommodation and demands a full internal inspection to appreciate, not only the well proportioned accommodation but also, the lovely position within which it sits.
The present owners have maintained and improved the property to a very good standard so it can be occupied with the minimum of preparation and expense. During their tenure the owners have installed UPVc double glazing and a full gas fired central heating system. Furthermore, there is now a new water main and the house has been completely re-wired. In 2018 the property had new roof work, all three chimneys have been refurbished both externally and internally and the outside has been re-rendered.
The house has attractive part brick and part rendered elevations with a front veranda and patio area which offers the opportunity to include a sun room either side of the property or, alternatively, to enclose the full width. This could make an excellent vestibule. The accommodation is offered in first class order throughout with original internal doors. The layout flows nicely to include a good sized entrance hall and an open plan kitchen/dining/living room. This is a triple aspect room with French doors leading onto the front patio and, as the property is slightly elevated, there are excellent views over Braunton and onto the estuary in the distance. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of units having under lighting to the wall cupboards and granite work surfaces. There is a very comfortable double aspect sitting room with bay window and a wood burner set in an attractive red brick surround and mantle. From the inner hall there is access to the rear garden, the cloakroom and dining room/5th bedroom/study.
To the first floor there is an attractive split level landing and an inner landing with airing cupboard leading to well fitted bathroom and separate WC. The master bedroom is double aspect and commands excellent open views and this has an en suite shower room and good sized walk in wardrobe. The 2nd and 4th bedrooms, also have excellent far reaching views, whilst the 3rd bedrooms is to the rear of the house.
The property stands within its own good sized south facing gardens which slope gently from North to South. There is vehicular access to the property from Hills Views and Pounds Lane to the front of the property, whilst to the rear there is vehicular access from East Hill. The drive runs the full length of the property. The front gardens are laid principally to lawn, flower and shrub beds, whilst immediately to the front of the house is a raised and good sized patio/sun deck. There is vehicular access to the side of the property leading to the rear garden. Here there is a further lawn, parking for numerous cars, a greenhouse and a non traditionally built garage. There are double timber gates leading out to East Hill.
Pounds Meadow is a cul-de-sac of 4 individual 1920's houses which are tucked away but offer very easy access to the village centre and its amenities. They are in a slightly elevated position and, therefore, afford good views over Braunton, the estuary in the distance, across the sea and out to Lundy Island. Braunton is a superb village with excellent amenities including primary and secondary schooling, medical centre, library, public houses and restaurants, churches and a good number of local shops and stores. There is also a Tesco superstore and a regular bus service from Barnstaple which connects to the sandy beaches at Croyde and Saunton, approximately 5 miles to the west. Saunton also has the renowned Golf Club with its two championship courses. Barnstaple, the regional centre of North Devon, is approximately 5 miles to the south east. Here a wider range of amenities can be found including the Queen's Theatre and North Devon Leisure Centre. Just out of town is an Asda Store and the nearby Sainsbury's, Tesco's and Lidl Stores. There is access to the North Devon Link Road which provides a convenient route to the M5 motorway, whilst the Tarka train line runs from Barnstaple to Exeter picking up the Penzance train to London (Paddington).

The property can be accessed either from Hills View to the front or, the rear, via East Hill. From the front there is access into Pounds Meadow and then into private long drive to the property and the side which then continues beyond to the rear of the house. There is a good sized lawn front garden with shrub and flower beds and lovely raised patio/sun deck immediately to the front of the property. To the rear there access via 2 x 5 bar gates to parking area for 2/3 cars and access to a non traditionally built garage. There is a further lawned area and a fruit garden with raspberries, red currants, black currants and gooseberries, various orchard trees and raised vegetable beds plus a greenhouse.
It is considered that there is tremendous potential to extend the property to the rear, subject to the necessary planning consents, or even to erect a summerhouse/studio and there will still be plenty of room for parking.
