Having been in the current vendors family since it was originally built in the early 1970's the sale of White Gates Lodge represents an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a most attractive residential and equestrian smallholding occupying an exceptional rural position in a sought after and yet readily accessible part of North Devon. The elevated position of the property is a particularly attractive feature enjoying stunning panoramic views over Barnstaple, the Taw Estuary and surrounding countryside, with Dartmoor visible in the far distance. White Gates Lodge extends in total to about 22.31 Acres and is offered for sale as a whole or in 2 lots, as described in these sale particulars.

The property occupies a stunning elevated south facing rural position on the much favoured Roborough Hill, lying close to the outskirts of the town just a couple of minutes from the North Devon District Hospital and a short drive from the town centre. Barnstaple itself provides an extensive range of commercial, recreational and educational facilities, befitting those of an important regional centre and including both local and national high street shops, banks, restaurants, public houses, a leisure centre, cinema and theatre.
From Barnstaple Station the picturesque Tarka line runs to Exeter St David's with further connecting mainline services to London, whilst Exeter Central station provides easy access to the excellent shopping facilities the city has to offer. The nearby Tarka Trail forms part of the national cycle network and an excellent bus service operates from Barnstaple to the surrounding towns and villages.
The A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to South Molton, Tiverton and the M5 motorway (J27). Mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway (London Paddington approx. 2 hours) with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
The property is surrounded by picturesque North Devon countryside which provides a wealth of outdoor activities including walking, horse riding, cycling, sea, coarse and game fishing, and golf courses at Portmore, Saunton and Westward Ho!. To the east the Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths, whilst the stunning North Devon coast is easily accessible, with popular sandy beaches at Instow, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe.

The property is approached from the quiet country lane known as Roborough Hill over a gated private driveway leading into a large car parking and turning area situated adjacent to the house. A raised garden overlooks the car parking area, laid mainly to lawn interspersed with a variety of ornamental trees and shrubs, with a pathway leading to the annexe and farm buildings. Adjoining the house to the rear elevation is a raised terrace enjoying stunning 180 degree views, with a door leading out from the conservatory and steps down to the main gardens. A pathway leads from the main gardens down past a lower lawned area into a small enclosed concrete yard containing a pair of dilapidated Stables, each approx. 12' x 10' (3.66m x 3.05m), and a further former Poultry House.
