Full Description

Nestled along the riverbank, this stunning large 4 bedroom detached residence offers good sized & adaptable accommodation suiting a number of uses. Substantial gardens & grounds extending to approximately 2 acres run alongside the water`s edge with a detached garage & adjoining office together with a self-contained apartment, ideal for an independent annex or to provide an additional income via a holiday or permanent let.

Riverside Cottage is one of those truly unique & individual properties that doesn`t become available every day, so be quick! Not only does this stunning property make a dream riverside home, with a proven commercial track record, the property makes an excellent investment opportunity as a substantial self catering holiday let.

Taking nothing away from the house, the outside space is a must see. From various private patio seating areas that take full advantage of the beautiful setting, to areas currently used as a small holding with goats, donkeys & ponies in residence. There are several areas of access onto the water, perfect to launch a kayak or to cast a fishing rod from. In all, the gardens & grounds extend to approximately 2 acres, with huge potential to create further amazing outside spaces if required.

The current owners over the last 12 years have used the property for different business ventures, most successfully a bed & breakfast, whilst in recent times using the whole property as a self-catering venue.

Three separate parking areas provide flexibility to the both the independent apartment & the main house, with one area of off road parking being particularly large, being able to accommodate a number of vehicles for guests & visitors.

The property has been well maintained by the current owners and will be found offering good sized & adaptable accommodation. A feature of the ground floor is the large 20` x 16` lounge which enjoys the superb views over the river. Meanwhile 4 double bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities will found on the first floor, with the impressive master bedroom benefiting from a large outside balcony, directly overlooking the water.

The studio apartment sits beneath the garage with an outlook over the river and offers modern well appointed accommodation with a sitting room/kitchen and a large double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Within a 12 month period, the apartment generated a holiday let income of circa ?12,000.

The 16` x 16` garage benefits from an adjoining good sized 13` x 6` office with separate WC, perfect for those seeking some work space away from the main house (if you can draw yourself away from the office window that looks directly over the river).

Located just a mile from Bideford Town, being very accessible by car or foot. The Port & Market town of Bideford offers a good choice of Shops, Amenities & Facilities, whilst the long sandy beach of Westward Ho! is within 4 miles and the regional centre of North Devon, Barnstaple is approximately 11 miles away via the A39 link road, which in turn provides access to the M5 motorway network at junction 27 (within an hour`s drive).

From Bideford Quay, proceed out of the town towards Torrington on the A386. After approximately 1 mile, the property will be seen on the left hand side with a ?For Sale` board clearly displayed.
