Property Description

1 Bicclescombe Gardens is a very spacious and characterful detached family home situated in a sought after cul-de-sac immediately adjacent to the town's municipal park gardens. The property is located approximately half a mile from the High Street and is within easy reach of all of the town's amenities.

Ilfracombe sits on the North Devon coast and is popular with visitors from all around the UK. The town has a picturesque harbour and working fish quay with other amenities including the Landmark Theatre, the famous Tunnels Beaches, a local swimming pool and golf club and schools for all ages. Also within the town there is a Tesco supermarket and there is a regular bus service to neighbouring towns and villages.

The accommodation is spacious and would suit a variety of purposes subject to any necessary consent. At present, the property is arranged as a large family home but alternatively, the lower ground floor area could be converted to create a separate annex for a dependant relative or a separate flat for either permanent or holiday letting purposes. Furthermore, the lower ground floor area could also be suitable for those looking to live and work from home by utilising the space as offices, consulting rooms or a studio. The attractive looking property has plenty of character and benefits from gas central heating, uPVC double glazing and uPVC facias, gutters and downpipes for ease of maintenance. The entrance porch at the front of the property leads into the large entrance hallway which gives the immediate feeling of space upon entering the property. There is a useful walk-in store cupboard which is ideal for coats, boots, the hoover and the ironing board. At the far end of the hallway overlooking the gardens and enjoying a pleasant open outlook over the park gardens towards the Cairn is the superb 27' x 11' living room which is a particularly bright and airy sunny room having 3 large bow shaped windows taking full advantage of the delightful open aspect. Within the room there is a feature tiled fireplace with a gas fire and an air conditioning unit. At the opposite end of the hallway is a 16' x 12' double aspect dining room which again has 2 large bow shaped windows and a feature fireplace.

The kitchen is beautifully presented and is fitted with a range of modern base and wall units and has a central brick arched feature. There is plumbing for a dishwasher and a doorway which leads though into a side porch which opens at the front onto the garden and has an archway through to a useful utility room which has plumbing for an automatic washing machine and a vent for a tumble dryer.

There are 2 double bedrooms on the ground floor, both of which have large bow shaped windows and with bedroom 2 having a built-in wardrobe with mirror fronted sliding doors. There are two family shower room wc's both comprising of modern white suites, one of which has been updated in recent years.

Stairs lead down to the lower ground floor which has further accommodation but can also be independently accessed from the gardens if required. It is considered, that subject to any necessary consent, that this area of the property could be utilised for alternative purposes such as a granny annex/letting unit or as office space, consulting rooms or a studio.

A lower ground floor landing gives access to the remainder of the rooms. The master bedroom measures an impressive 21' in length and has a built-in wardrobe and a useful under stairs cupboard. There is a further 15' x 10' bedroom/sitting room which has double doors leading out directly onto the garden and an L-shaped bedroom 5/study which again has a door leading out onto the garden. There is a further family bathroom wc comprising of a modern white suite which includes a large panelled bath with shower and shower screen over, low level wc and a wash hand basin. Adjacent to the bathroom there is a useful walk-in airing cupboard which houses the gas fired combination boiler for the central heating and hot water.

At the far end of the hall there is access to a large under stairs storage area which has been divided into 2 separate areas measuring 17'7" x 14'4" and 14' x 11' respectively. The area is ideal for storing household items and also gives easy access to pipe work and electric cables.

Outside, at the front of the property there is a brick paviour pathway which leads to the front door of the property. There is an outside light and well stocked flowerbeds and a patio area which leads around to the right hand side of the property to the side porch. The brick paviour pathway extends around to the left hand side of the property and winds its way down through an area of lawned garden with a large magnolia tree and flowerbed borders. The path leads down to a large parking and turning area which provides access for 3 cars. There is further outdoor lighting and a gate opens into the rear garden. The rear garden comprises of paved pathways which meander through lawned gardens which has a decked area with hot tub and wooden shelter. From the upper tier of the patio, a pathway and steps lead along the side of the property to a gated access at the front.

The rear lawn leads on to a lower area of garden which comprises a crazy paved patio and bar-be-cue area sitting immediately adjacent to the stream boundary. This area is considered ideal for outdoor entertaining or alfresco dining and enjoys plenty of the daytime sunlight.

We fully advise an early internal inspection of this particularly versatile and spacious property to appreciate the size and facilities on offer.
