Agent Details

Brights of Bideford

Tel: 01237 473241


Most delightful character property having been the subject of recent refurbishment. Offering flexible accommodation which offers a light and airy feel with the benefit of a pleasant open aspect. Occupying a tucked away location with private entrance pathway and an adjoining 39' x 32' garden plot.


The property is set within a terrace of just four which occupies a tucked away location being situated between Irsha Street and Torridge Road.

Having been the subject of considerable expenditure the property will be found to offer smart and very well presented accommodation with the decoration to the most part being in classic white which is complemented by new carpets and quality vinyl floor coverings.

The accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility with the current arrangement having the Living Room on the first floor so to take advantage of the open aspect and to enjoy glimpses of the Estuary with open distant countryside views beyond. 

As the property is complimented by a generous garden plot it is considered that the house would appeal equally as a permanent home or as a holiday home/retreat. As Appledore is such a sought after village and with all the improvements that have been made to the property the agents have no hesitation in recommending an appointment to view at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment. 
Appledore has historic traditions linked to the shipbuilding and fishing industries. There is an excellent choice of Public Houses/Restaurants, Maritime Museum and a range of locally owned shops. Just a mile or so around the coast is the seaside resort of Westward Ho! with its long sandy beach and adjoining Championship Golf Course. The Port and Market town of Bideford is within 3 miles and there is easy access to the North Devon Link Road. 

SERVICES: All mains services. Gas fired central heating. Upvc double glazed windows and external doors.


DIRECTIONS TO FIND: From Bideford proceed towards Northam, Appledore and Westward Ho! and after passing the Durrant House Hotel on the right-hand side take the next principle turning right as signposted to Appledore.  When reaching the top of the village continue down into the village and along the quay past the large car park and St. Mary's Church whereupon the road turns to the left and then right into Torridge Road. The gated pathway that leads to the property will be found on the right-hand side between number 5 Torridge Road and a bungalow known as Petrock.
