1 Old Rectory Close Instow, Bideford £389,950

Sold STC
3    1    2

A very well presented three-bedroom detached bungalow – with distant countryside views and sea glimpses - sitting in a large plot, conveniently located in a highly sought-after residential area on Rectory Lane, Instow. This single-level accommodation has been carefully designed with lowered thresholds to ensure easy access to all parts of the property. Gas central heating and uPVC double-glazing throughout.

To the front of the property is a large, fenced, brick-paving driveway that will comfortably accommodate several cars. A level hardstanding has been installed specifically with a motorhome in mind but would serve equally well for any large vehicle.

Internally a large entrance hall with airing cupboard opens to this spacious and well laid-out property. A door to the left-hand side leads to the comfortable double-aspect sitting room – complete with coal effect gas fire - with a door through to the light family/dining room, which itself flows open-plan into the kitchen. The kitchen benefits from a large skylight and North-easterly windows, making it a morning suntrap.

To the right-hand side of the entrance hall is a hallway leading to the family bathroom, bedrooms one, two, and three, and the W.C and utility room. Bedrooms one and two benefit from fitted wardrobes and all three bedrooms benefit from large casement windows. The family bathroom features a white three-piece suite including bath with shower over, as well as a separate walk-in shower cubicle.

At the end of the hallway is also a large utility room which is currently used as a cloakroom/laundry room. There is external access through the utility room which is perfect for coming back from muddy walks or sandy trips to the beach. Due to the layout of the property there is potential for converting the utility room into a shower room/kitchenette and incorporating the W.C and third bedroom into a separate annexe.

Externally, a perimeter fence encloses the attractive L-shaped garden, which includes manicured lawns and well-established borders. A patioed area in the far corner of the garden currently houses a gazebo seating area, and a good sized 10’ x 8’ timber shed provides excellent garden storage.

Underneath the family/dining room is a useful storage space and there are water taps with fitted hoses at both the front and rear of the property. A raised sun deck has been constructed of non-slip timber and offers access from the kitchen to the garden.

South Lodge is within walking distance of Instow Beach, the Tarka cycle trail, North Devon Cricket Club, North Devon Yacht Club, and the numerous pubs, restaurants and shops that Instow village has to offer.
