An unique 5 bedroom chalet style property on a one acre (approx) plot offering spacious, flexible and adaptable family accommodation. Large garden with orchard, several outbuildings, a shed and greenhouse, ample parking for several cars and stunning views. EPC: D


Highgrove is a privately located 5 bedroom chalet style property set in an elevated one acre (approx.) plot offering wonderful far reaching views across the Taw Estuary away to Hartland and further rural views to open countryside below Shirwell. The plot sits in a wonderfully convenient location on the Northern edge of the market town of Barnstaple and within a very short distance of the North Devon District Hospital. There are a series of outbuildings some of which may have some planning potential, a lovely vegetable garden, a further hidden garden to the rear and adequate turning and car parking for a number of cars. The property has been extended and improved over its lifetime but still offers an opportunity to re-model and change the internal configuration and could be sub divided to create dual family accommodation.


The property sits in a very convenient location to the North of Barnstaple at the end of a private driveway which exits onto the A39 and literally five minutes to the South is Barnstaple. The town itself sits on the Taw Estuary and has wonderful access to the beaches at Saunton, Putsborough and Woolacombe and to the North East lies the Exmoor National Park with an abundance of walking and riding and to the South are the unspoiled rural heartlands of Mid Devon. The property sits in a slightly elevated position with far reaching rural views yet within close proximity to Barnstaple.

The Tractor Shed lies at the entrance of the property of block and galvanised roof construction which could, subject to planning consent be converted into annexe or holiday accommodation and is sufficiently distant from the main house so would not interfere with the privacy and seclusion of the main property. Further buildings lie above the property and again, subject to planning could be converted to office use. The buildings are of block construction and occupy a quiet location, slightly elevated with views.


The gardens are a particular feature of this property. The lower garden is laid out with a central path, fruit trees, flowers and shrubs. The Northern garden is made up of a delightful series of compartments with stone steps linking the upper to the lower with some larger trees and shrubs. It benefits from a South westerly aspect with the most wonderful views over the open countryside just below Shirwell.


The plan is for illustrative purposes only and should be used as such by any prospective purchaser.


Mains water, sewage (by way of septic tank) and electricity connected. Oil tank for heating. Solar Panels (by negotiation).
