On approach to the property, you will no doubt be impressed by the ample parking which is available to the rear and adjoins the large useful outbuilding which could be converted into an annexe, subject to the necessary planning consents, or it works perfectly as a garage/workshop. There is further utility space adjoining this and steps lead you down to another level patio, large stone built shed and access to the front garden where you should prepare to be amazed by the sizeable, attractive plot. The garden is an absolute delight, the land is interspersed with a range of trees providing shade and shelter on those hot and sunny days, space to grow vegetables, a patio area that is perfect for entertaining guests over a summer barbecue and a large area of lawn for the kids to play on. The photos really don't show just how special this garden is, you need to see for yourself to truly appreciate what is on offer here.
Step inside the useful porch where you can hang your coats and store your shoes and you access the sitting room, with much higher ceilings than you would expect from a cottage, a lovely fireplace with a wood burner, cornice ceilings and light streaming in from the windows to the front. The playroom/bedroom 4 is found off the sitting room and could equally work well as an office. The kitchen diner is a more recent addition with no shortage of work surface space, space for a large cooker, tiled flooring with under floor heating, slate work surfaces, space for a dishwasher and a sink with a pull out spray tap above. The rear porch houses the utility with plumbing for your washing machine and the gas boiler, here you will also find rear stable door access.
On the first floor you will find the 3 bedrooms, the master being the most impressive of these; a lovely spacious room with high ceilings, thick pile carpet, window seats, built in storage and plenty of space for furniture. Bedroom 2 is double aspect and has fine views over the garden and beyond, whilst bedroom 3 is a good single/small double. The family bathroom has been improved and renovated by the current owners and now creates a comfortable space with a double ended claw foot bath, corner shower unit, low level WC, interesting and quirky wash basin and an oak window seat.
Tawstock is a wonderful village with a very well regarded school and it is only just over 2.5 miles from Barnstaple town centre, with its array of local and national retailers, pubs, restaurants, leisure centres and multi screen cinema, so if you are looking for that country feel but still want to be within easy access to amenities then Tawstock is worth considering.
This property really offers the perfect blend of well maintained accommodation, large gardens, ample parking, modern conveniences and scope to still add further value by converting the outbuildings. So, if you are interested please don't delay, call us now or book online for your video tour in the first instance.
