1A Barnstaple Street is a traditionally constructed period home under a slate roof with some double glazing and gas centrally heated accommodation.  The property can be utilised in many ways either as a 3/4 bedroomed home or the master bedroom is a rather splendid 19' room situated on the first floor with feature fireplace which could be utilised as a lounge with river views the property would then have three bedrooms with one of these located on the ground floor.  The property benefits from views over the river to Bideford waterfront and quayside and is considered ideal as a family home.  It is offered to the market in immaculate condition throughout with many period features including a rather splendid arched window on the grand sweeping staircase.  This very well presented spacious family home offers very adaptable accommodation with the potential for a loft conversion (subject to any necessary consents).  Properties such as Arana rarely come to the market so well presented and with such good views over the river, an early viewing is strongly recommended to fully appreciate this individual home.

The property is situated just going out of Bideford Town on the Old Bideford to Barnstaple Road and conveniently located close to the main bus route leading from the Quay front and Town Centre. There are facilities closer including general store, junior school, health centre and Tesco supermarket. It is also conveniently positioned within easy access to the Link Road with the nearest junction being just over a mile away. This has improved access to the area with connection of the M5 motorway at Tiverton. As a result, Barnstaple, the area's major regional centre is now within fifteen minutes driving distance. The coastal resort of Westward Ho! famed for its surfing, sandy beach and adjoining golf course is only three miles away. It is a similar distance to the yachting village again with its sandy beach.
