About This Property

A truly once in a generation opportunity to purchase this substantial semi-detached residence situated in one of North Devon’s premier spots of Woolacombe, overlooking Barricane beach, Baggy point, Morte point, Lundy island and everything in between.

Chichester House is a considerable residence with some of the most incredible waterfront views I've ever seen. It can be found in arguably one of North Devon’s premier locations, The Esplanade in Woolacombe. Being able to access the famous surfing beaches in a matter of minutes and watching the wave’s crash into the rocks truly is a sight to behold. The property could suit any number of purchasers, whether that be somebody looking to have a large individual residence, somebody looking to develop the building into a mixture of units (STPP) or alternatively to utilise the home for multiple holiday let incomes along with a separate owners accommodation (which is how it is currently used)

Offering over 3500sq ft. of space divided over three floors the possibilities truly are endless. At the front elevation there is a small garden with a sun terrace facing out in a westerly direction and is able to enjoy watching the sun set over Lundy Island beyond. Above this there are also multiple balcony spaces that make the most of this impressive sight too. The rear elevation has multiple rear and side exits that lead to the rear garden which has a large paved terrace and offers a great deal of privacy, space and once again views. This space could potentially be developed to provide further accommodation subject to obtaining the necessary planning permissions. Further on there is off street parking for six cars and this is accessed via a private road. The ground floor currently is set up with three bedrooms, a dining room, lounge, conservatory, a kitchen, two bathrooms and various different store rooms/utilities. It is currently used as owner’s accommodation. The first floor currently has three holiday lets in it, but has potential to have further as in total there are six bedrooms, three bathrooms and two large stores as well as the large landing. The second, and top, floor has six double sized rooms and two further bathrooms. This is currently divided into two separate holiday let flats and both have their own entrances.

Homes like Chichester House are few and far between, this is due to the majority of them having already been developed into multiple flats or alternatively people just don’t like selling them and hold onto them for decades, such is the case with this one having been in the family since the mid 1980's. This truly is a generational opportunity. Call us on 01271 233777 to arrange appointments.

AGENTS NOTE: Rockfield Road at the rear of the property is a privately owned road. The road is owned by Rockfield Road Management Company which is made up of the residents of the road (including this property). Each property contributes £150 per annum to the Management Company to cover expenses etc.

Woolacombe is nestled on the North Devon Coast and is surrounded by National Trust land and is an extremely popular and well known village throughout the UK and has previously had the number one ranked beach in the UK. The village has a selection of small independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants to suit most. It also benefits from a health centre, chemist and a local primary school.

As well as the main beach, there is also Barricane and Combesgate beaches. The surrounding National Trust Land provides plenty of coastal walks and some amazing views. There are a variety of leisure facilities and excellent nearby golf courses with the best known being the championship golf course at Saunton. The North Devon link road is easily accessible and provides access to Barnstaple and further on Tiverton which connects with the M5 motorway.
