Castlehaven is a spacious family home in an elevated position above the old Victorian town of Ilfracombe. It enjoys superb views over the town and its hills, and across the Bristol Channel to the distant Welsh coast, with wide expanses of sky and sea. The High Street, seafront and picturesque harbour are all within a short walk, as are schools for all ages.
The property has accommodation arranged over two floors and has had many improvements made by the present owners. Rooms are large and well-proportioned with high ceilings and original features such as fireplaces and coving. Large picture windows in the kitchen, sitting room, master bedroom and bedroom 3, all provide magnificent views over the sea, town and hills.
On the ground floor, the front door opens into a light and spacious reception hall, which could also serve as a secondary sitting area. The comfortable sitting room has a Victorian style fireplace with a new gas fire. The spacious dining room is currently used as a study/hobbies room. The modern kitchen/breakfast room has a Neff oven and induction hob, Miele dishwasher and pelmet lighting. Off this is a utility area and cloakroom with w.c. and hand basin.
On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms. The master bedroom and bedroom 3 (currently used as a study) have large walk-in bay windows, which provide the most stunning views of all. The master bathroom comprises a corner bath, shower cubicle, hand basin and w.c. There is also a shower room with shower, hand basin and w.c. A store room is located off the half landing.
There is gas central heating, uPVC double glazing and uPVC fascia, soffits, gutters and downpipes for ease of maintenance. All plumbing and wiring is completely up to date.
At the front of the house there is a block-paved driveway, providing off-road parking for two vehicles. A 7.4kW fast EV charger for electric cars has recently been installed. A side access path with outside tap leads to the rear with steps down to the garden, which has block paving, a small lawn, shrubs and a pretty perennial garden. It too has sea views. There is an outdoor power point. Beneath the property, with access from the garden, there are two large basement store rooms with light and power, which can be utilised as workshops.
PV solar panels provide an income and free electricity. The feed-in tariff from these is currently £2,300 per annum. This is tax free and adjusted for inflation. Estimated free electricity is currently worth approximately £700 per annum. 12 years remain on the present contract.
