Sunnybank represents a most attractive and well situated property package with smallholder and equestrian potential occupying an exceptional edge of village position within the Exmoor National Park. The property comprises an attractive detached chalet style bungalow affording deceptively spacious four bedroomed family accommodation set in lovely large gardens and benefiting from private parking, a garage and useful store. Adjoining the homestead is an excellent block of productive pasture land primarily divided into two convenient paddocks and enjoying a gently sloping south westerly aspect. Incorporated within the land are two pretty enclosed garden areas. The land may be well suited to those prospective purchasers with horses or looking to keep a few livestock, as well as those simply looking for their own private space to enjoy. Sunnybank extends in total to about 7.25 Acres, and is offered for sale as a whole or in up to three lots, as detailed within these sale particulars.
Please Note: The land Lots 2 and 3 will not be sold separately until a sale of Lot 1 has been secured.

The property is situated on the edge of the pretty village of Parracombe, accessed over a quiet no-through road known as Bodley Lane and enjoying a slightly elevated, south facing position with fine views over the village and surrounding countryside. Parracombe itself is situated on the western periphery of the Exmoor National Park and affords a thriving local community providing a primary school, general store/post office, public house and parish church.  Despite its peaceful and secluded position Sunnybank still enjoys easy access to the surrounding districts and further afield with the larger towns of Barnstaple and South Molton providing an extensive range of every day shopping, banking, recreational and educational facilities.  From both of these centres the A361 North Devon link road provides easy access to Tiverton and the M5 motorway (Junction 27).  Mainline intercity rail links are available at Tiverton Parkway (London, Paddington approx. 2 hours) with international airports at Exeter and Bristol.
The Exmoor National Park offers beautiful moorland scenery with many foot and bridle paths and the stunning North Devon coastline with its popular resorts of Lynton, Lynmouth, Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. Lying to the west are the popular sandy beaches of Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Putsborough and Woolacombe. The property is surrounded by picturesque North Devon countryside which provides unsurpassed riding and is renowned for its recreational and sporting opportunities, boasting some of the finest hunting, fishing and shooting in the country.

The property is approached over the quiet no-through council road known as Bodley Lane, with private parking for 2-3 cars also providing access to the Garage and adjoining Store, which are set into the hillside with power and water connected. From the parking area a gravelled pathway with heather and flower stocked borders winds up to the bungalow. A large lawned garden adjoins to the eastern elevation, with a paved patio enjoying lovely views and a separate vegetable garden. On the opposite side of the bungalow is a further large garden area, the patio doors from the sitting room opening onto a gravelled sitting out area, with a Summer House, 3.9m x 2.2m, and Potting Shed, 2.9m x 2.3m. Steps lead down to a further pretty lower garden.
The Land
Adjoining the gardens to the west is an attractive area of undulating pasture benefiting from a separate gated access from Bodley Lane, with a further gate leading from here up into a gently sloping field lying immediately to the rear of the house. The land primarily comprises productive pasture enjoying a gently sloping south westerly aspect, utilised in recent years for the grazing of livestock, although it may be well suited to a variety of smallholder, equestrian, conservation or other amenity uses. Lots 1 extends in total to about 3.09 Acres, as shown shaded red on the attached identification plan.
Lot 2 - Pasture Land extending to about 4.08 Acres
Lying immediately to the east of Lot 1 and adjoining the edge of the village, this comprises a further gently sloping and productive pasture paddock contained with hedgebank boundaries and enjoying a separate gated access direct from Bodley Lane. Included within this land is a section of former track, known as Broadpark Lane, which despite now being somewhat overgrown in parts forms a charming feature. Furthermore, situated in the south east corner of Lot 2, with a gated access from the main field, is an enclosed pretty former garden area. Lot 2 is shown shaded green on the attached identification plan.
Lot 3 - Former Garden extending to about 0.08 Acres
Lying a short distance further along Bodley Lane this comprises a small but charming garden area enclosed within hedged and walled boundaries and containing a greenhouse, established apple trees and a vegetable patch. The garden is entered via a pedestrian gateway from Bodley Lane and is shown shaded blue on the attached identification plan.
