Property Description

Chartwood is a large detached Victorian building situated in the favoured Torrs Park area of the town which is within walking distance of the town centre, seafront and harbour. The building sits in its own large grounds with driveway at the front and communal gardens at the rear which have direct access onto the National Trust Car Park and South West Coast path which enjoys many picturesque walks along the rugged coastline.

The apartment itself is the largest in the building and offers incredibly well balanced living space that is superbly laid out for family living or entertaining. This wonderful apartment has been meticulously renovated by the current owner with no expense spared and every detail exquisitely considered. Unlike many of its counterparts, this spacious and flexible home successfully manages to blend contemporary touches alongside character and practicality. The design theme throughout the property is strikingly tasteful and features gorgeous fixtures and fittings, coupled with chic and contemporary interior finishes.

The property has its own front door which leads into a large entrance hall with an original attractive Victorian mosaic tiled floor which provides ample space to receive guests. The lounge is a grand and spacious room with a large bay window to front with stained glass leaded light fan light windows and excellent views over the town towards the Cairn and Torrs and the Bristol Channel. There is an original marble fireplace and high ornate coved ceiling with centre light rose and a stripped wooden floor. A door leads into a small lobby which in turn opens into a further sitting room which has double doors leading out onto the private garden. This sitting area could also be utilized as a study or a further bedroom if required. The kitchen/diner is the main social hub of the property and has been finished to an impeccable standard and features a large bay window to the front elevation. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a comprehensive range of base level units with matching drawers, waterfall kitchen countertop, inset sink, high specification induction hob and double oven with the focal point of the room being the large island unit and breakfast bar. From the kitchen, there is access out to a private courtyard, which in turn leads into a handy utility/storage room. The main bedroom is a large double room located at the rear of the property and is accessed from the kitchen. This double room benefits from having a beautifully presented bathroom en-suite. The main family bathroom is accessed from the entrance hallway and comprises a modern three piece suite. Bedroom 2 is a further impressive double room with the benefit of a modern shower room en-suite. The third bedroom is also a double bedroom, but has access out to the rear courtyard, built in wardrobes and space for a home workstation. The fourth bedroom is the only room located on the upper floor and enjoys a twin aspect with outstanding views to a wide vista across the town, countryside and onto the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh Coast. There are built in wardrobes and an en-suite w.c. and wash hand basin.

Outside, a sweeping driveway gives apartment 1 direct access to its front door as the car parking space is located immediately outside the apartment At the front between the drive and the property is a grassed sloping bank with mature colourful shrubs and bushes. The apartment itself benefits from a large sunny aspect, extensively paved patio with ample space for a large table and chairs. This area which is fully enclosed and has been designed for ease of maintenance provides the perfect place for al-fresco dining and entertaining. The patio wraps all the way around to the front of the property, and is surrounded with an array of attractive flowers, mature shrubs and verdant vegetation. There is a large detached summer house currently known as the "Love Shack", that would make for a peaceful place to relax and unwind, but would equally make a great home office for anyone that works remotely. Behind the summer house, steps take you up to a decked seating area with a pleasant view across the town. Further steps then lead up passing well stocked flowerbeds to a gateway which gives access into the communal gardens which stretch up behind the property with terraced lawns with trees and shrubs and has access onto the National Trust Car Park. Attached to the side of the apartment is a private 16ft utility/work room with light and power and a door at the rear of this room leads onto a rear yard which can also be accessed from the third bedroom. There is a further communal store room on the other side of the building.

AGENT NOTE: The property is currently on two titles. The current owners purchased apartment 1 and 2, and then knocked them in to one. The properties are leasehold with an original 999 year lease. The freehold is vested within the management company Chartwood (Ilfracombe) Management Company Limited. Each flat has a 1/7th share in the company and this transaction will come with 2 shares. The service charge which includes the maintenance of the communal areas and the buildings insurance for both apartments is approximately £300 a month. Commercial property letting is not permitted although use by family members and friends is allowed. The property can also be let on an assured short hold basis. We also understand that one pet per apartment is allowed with the consent of the management company, but only if the apartment is owner occupied. Flat 1 and Flat 2 have 3 allocated parking spaces altogether. One is outside the front door and two more on the driveway leading up to Chartwood.

Ilfracombe town centre has a variety of small independent shops as well as larger supermarkets, schools for all ages, a health centre, cottage hospital, theatre, post office and a bank. The picturesque sea front and harbour has further shops, bars and some fantastic restaurants. Wildersmouth Beach and the famous Victorian hand carved "Tunnels" beach are along the esplanade which leads down to the picturesque harbour and the renowned artist Damien Hirst's influence can be felt by the addition of many art galleries which have appeared over recent years together with his majestic 60ft tall "Verity" statue at the harbour mouth. Barnstaple, North Devon's main trading centre is approximately 12 miles away with many of the big name shops and a rail link to the inter-city network. North Devon has a huge amount to offer with the fabulous golden sand surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton just a short car ride away. The Exmoor National Park is also within easy reach and enjoys some breath-taking scenery and miles and miles of walking.
