3 bedroom Bungalow for sale: Old Barnstaple Road, Bideford, EX39
Guide Price £355,000
Detached 3 bed cottage style bungalow with a generous garden plot and a large workshop/garage. The current owners have created an eclectic yet colourful outside space creating a haven for anyone who is a keen gardener.
Old Barnstaple Road as its name suggests originally connected North Devon's 2 principle towns but is now an approx. 300 yard cul de sac serving a variety of residential properties.
Consequently a much quieter environment has been created all within a convenient walk of the town centre, shops and quayside on the western side of Bideford Town.
There is a medical centre with Lloyds dispensary close by and a choice of public houses, restaurants and a prominent hotel are also an easy walk away. Bideford affords private and state run schools with a quayside which continues as a picturesque working Port.
SERVICES: Mains water, gas, electricity and private drainage. uPVC double glazed windows and exposed floorboards through out.
COUNCIL TAX BAND: C
DIRECTIONS: From Bideford Quay proceed across the old bridge turning left at the roundabout onto Barnstaple Street, go past the Wooda Surgery on the left hand side and up the short sharp Station Hill, at the top of which turn right into Old Barnstaple Road, follow the road and after the turning into West View Avenue there will be a left turning, take this road and the property will be found nestled in the bottom right corner with name displayed.
