Property Description

Situated in one of Ilfracombe's most sought after locations is this substantial property which forms the majority of this semi-detached house.

24 Crofts Lea Park has an abundance of character with high ceilings and a great feeling of space and light. One of the key features undoubtedly of this property are the superb sea views which can be seen from the rear aspect of the property. Some of the best views are from the master bedroom through the large bay window which takes in parts of the town, Hillsborough, parts of the harbour including the Damien Hirst's famous "Verity" statue and the sea beyond, with Wales being visible on a clear day. This property also has scope for further alterations, subject to any relevant building consent as below the lounge there is a spacious cellar, whilst from the first floor landing there are stairs leading up to a loft space which has been partly boarded with 2 Velux windows installed.

The accommodation briefly comprises of double doors leading into a large entrance lobby which is double glazed and has a conservatory feel. A door then leads into a particularly spacious and grand hallway with stairs leading up to the first floor landing with a useful under stairs built in storage cupboard. A door then leads into a spacious dining room with high ceilings and a large bay window allowing in plenty of light with seating below and set in the fireplace is a feature log burner. There is also a door giving access to a cupboard which runs below the stairs. Within the floor there is a trap door and ladder giving access down into the cellar which measures approximately the same area as the dining room itself. The cellar is currently used for storage for fire wood and is also a handy work space with a double electric power point. To the opposite side of the hallway there is a large and spacious lounge. Immediately upon entering this room you are drawn towards the large bay window with the fantastic views looking out over the surrounding countryside with the sea beyond. Within the room there is a gas fire with ornate surround and the room itself measures approximately 21' in length giving ample room for sizeable furniture. Adjacent to this room is a workshop which previously has been used as a kitchen with various base units still intact. Also within this room is the boiler which is used solely for heating the hot water. With a bit of alteration this room could ideally suit a purchaser as either a large study or as a third bedroom, or turned back in to a kitchen as the pipework is still intact. Adjacent to this is a downstairs w.c. with a wash hand basin and a potential space for a bath or shower cubicle.

Moving up then through the property to the large first floor landing there are doors to all rooms leading off and additional stairs leading up to the loft space. The master bedroom itself has a large bay window with some of the finest views from this property looking over the surrounding countryside, down towards the harbour taking in Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue and the sea beyond, with Wales being visible on a clear day. Within this room is a back boiler which served the heating for this floor, but it is now out of commission, and a new combination boiler would be needed if a purchaser wanted central heating on the first floor. There is a kitchen/diner which comprises of a range of base and eye level units with adjacent rolled edge work surfaces and an inset stainless steel sink. Within the kitchen there is also space for a washing machine, microwave and fridge with further space at the far end of the room for a dining table and chairs. Bedroom 2 is also a double room and has a large bay window with an inset wood burner and built-in storage cupboard. From the landing there is a door leading into a bathroom comprising of a panelled bath with an electric shower over, wash hand basin and also off the landing is a separate w.c.

The loft space for the property can be accessed via stairs which have been erected from the landing and through a loft hatch. This space is particularly large and has been partly boarded with 2 Velux windows fitted and may suit for conversion giving further bedrooms, subject to any necessary consent.

Outside to the front there is a gate leading into a small garden area which is enclosed. The rear garden can be accessed through the driveway of the lower ground floor flat and through the car port. The decking/artificial grass area immediately outside the rear of the property actually belongs to the lower ground floor flat as does the slither of land to the left hand side. The remainder of the garden which is the larger portion, has been laid mainly to lawn with various flowers and shrubs. This space is a haven for wildlife and birds of all description and is quite simply a gardeners paradise. There is a nice mixtures of fruit trees and plenty of space that can be used for aesthetic and recreational purposes. Down at the bottom there is a more private area and up towards the top there is an electric power point.
