This modern detached house sits in an elevated position within the choice coastal village of Instow and boasts breathtaking panoramic views over the estuary and out to sea. Stunning views of the quaint fishing village of Appledore, Crow Point and Saunton can also be enjoyed and are immediately evident on approaching the property.

The property offers flexible accommodation and comprises a 4 bedroom detached house and an additional 1 bedroom self contained annexe (The Sail Loft). Currently a family home the owners have, in the past, offered B&B accommodation which demonstrates the versatility that this property offers. The ground floor accommodation briefly comprises 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a utility room whilst the first floor provides an open-plan kitchen/diner, sitting room and conservatory which both open on to the balcony. The Sail Loft is totally independent and could be utilised for a dependent relative or, alternatively, as a long term or holiday let from which to derive an income. There is a separate access and the accommodation briefly comprises a ground floor bedroom and shower room whilst the first floor provides an open-plan kitchen/living area with a superb feature window. The large double garage is currently being used as a workshop but could also be converted further (subject to the necessary consents) to offer accommodation that could be incorporated with The Sail Loft. Outside the property provides ample off-road parking for several vehicles with a split driveway and manageable gardens. There is a delightful patio at the front which takes in the fine view and is the perfect place for al-fresco dining whilst the rear garden is level and laid to lawn with raised beds. P.P was granted in 2006 to extend the current accommodation and as significant work has started, it is felt that this could continue if required (Planning number 42404). The property also offers great potential as a holiday let, for more details, please contact the team
