Waterside property in Devon

At the southern tip of Croyde Bay, just 20 miles from Barnstaple, sits Down End House a property just 150 metres from the beach facing the coastline of North Devon currently on the market with Knight Frank. Dating from the late 19th century, the house sits in its own landscaped gardens with principal rooms enjoying outstanding sea views.

The main residence (currently split into to separate houses one known as The Lodge) has 6 bedrooms, drawing room, sun room, wet room, double garage and a games room, while additional accommodation can be found at The Stables, which has four bedrooms, a wet room, sitting room, terrace and a sun deck. Both The Stables and The Lodge could provide a significant rental income or could be easily incorporated back into the main house.

The area is surrounded by National Trust land which provides some excellent walking, and the South West Coast Path gives access to the spectacular Baggy Point, an area of outstanding natural beauty, and very well known by the surfing fraternity.

Access to London is via the M5, and takes about two and a half hours, and trains from Tiverton to London Paddington take around two hours.

Down End House has a guide price of £2.5m. For further information, please contact Knight Frank on +44 (0)1392 423111 or log onto
