Spacious and versatile detached chalet bungalow occupying a peaceful location within this popular close with private south facing rear garden and the invaluable asset of a modern 75 square metre (the size of a modest bungalow) detached garage/workshop. Situated not far from the village amenities.


The property is set within a most popular residential crescent of mature detached bungalows and chalet bungalows of varying designs and arrangements.

Having originally started life as a 2 bed bungalow the property has been extended, remodelled and has created first floor accommodation which gives the property its versatility which we are sure will appeal to purchasers.

The property is complimented beautifully being set within a generous plot with a private south facing rear garden and together with the extremely large double garage, workshop and store the agents are confident that this will set it apart from the competition and therefore recommend an early appointment to view.

Convenient to Northam village amenities being within easy walking distance of the local medical centre, dental surgery, library and square where there is a choice of local shops and stores, churches and public house. Regular bus services are available through the village into the port and market town of Bideford (1.5.miles) or indeed the nearby seaside resort of Westward Ho! with its long sandy beach and adjoining championship golf course. 

 All mains services. Gas fired central heating. Upvc coated aluminium double glazed windows to the ground floor accommodation and upvc double glazed windows to the first floor rooms. The property also benefits from Solar Panels fitted to the rear of the property, they are owned outright and therefore contribute towards an annual saving.
COUNCIL TAX BAND: C. However as 'improvements' have been made to the property this can be subject to a review once sold.
DIRECTIONS TO FIND: From Bideford proceed to Northam Village passing through the Torridge Bridge roundabout and just after the War Memorial at the top of the village take the turning left into Bay View Road. Fairlea Crescent will be found on the left-hand side within a short distance. Fairlea Crescent itself has 2 entrances and so in this instance it would be sensible to take the upper entrance and the property will be found on the right-hand side displaying a BRIGHTS for sale board.
