Kingfisher is a modern, detached bungalow that occupies a delightful and very tucked-away position at the edge of Velator. The property benefits from delightful open view across Knowl Water and marshland, and around to Velator Quay. On a good day, you can see as far as Appledore on the far side of the Taw-Torridge estuary! This is a 'must buy' bungalow, ideal for those who enjoy both privacy and easy access to schools, shops and bus routes.
The windows have uPVC double glazing, while heating and hot water are run off mains gas with solar back-up. To the front of the property there is off-road parking, leading to a good-sized garage with access into the bungalow. The entrance hall is of nice size with attractive flooring. Most of the rooms take full advantage of the lovely views to the south west. The living room has built-in book shelves and French doors to the garden. The kitchen has a built-in hob, oven and fridge and leads into a very useful utility room that has a door to the rear garden. The master bedroom looks out onto open ground and has an en-suite shower room. The property has three further bedrooms and an additional bathroom, one of which could be used as a separate dining room, if preferred.
This will make for an ideal family or retirement home. Alternatively, the new owner could easily tap into the lucrative holiday home market as this position would suit many holiday makers.
The bungalow sits within a triangular, level plot laid to lawn. The far edge of the garden has an attractive stone wall that backs onto Knowl Water and, of course, the wide countryside views beyond.
The property is very conveniently placed for easy access to amenities. It is barely 300 metres to a Tesco superstore, while primary and secondary schools are within an easy walk, as is the village centre. The Tarka Trail, with its many miles of cycling trails and fantastic estuary views, and the birdwatching delights of the Braunton marshes are on the door step.
Braunton is one of the largest villages in the country and caters well for its inhabitants. There are many shops, churches, and pubs, with a regular bus service to the renowned surfing beaches at Croyde and Saunton about five miles to the west. The bus service also connects to Barnstaple, the regional centre, where there is a wider choice of amenities including Green Lanes Shopping Centre, the Queen's Theatre and out-of-town shopping at Roundswell. From Barnstaple, you can access the North Devon Link Road which connects to the M5 at Junction 27. The national rail service can be joined at Barnstaple, from where the line goes to Exeter to pick up services to London Paddington.
