Property Description

Premier location in the town | Excellent investment opportunity | Potential for additional dwelling subject to planning permission | Frontage onto Breakwater Road | In need of renovation

Last sold in 1952, this unique Bude residence has huge potential for its next owners, located in a prime position with an abundance of character and market appeal.

The grounds of the property stretch from Church Path to the south and Breakwater road to the north giving both views along the busy canal but also Summerleaze beach. Other plots of this size further along the road benefit multiple dwellings.

Thought to have originally been constructed as a gift for the retiring nanny of the Ackland family when living at Efford Manor, the property is of generous proportions and exceptionally well located. The property briefly comprises:
Entrance hall, sitting room and dining room, kitchen and breakfast room, conservatory, cloakroom and ground floor self-contained one bedroom Annex. On the first floor, four bedrooms and family bathroom can be found.

There is mains gas central heating and good-sized gardens to front and rear. The property will benefit total renovation and early internal inspection is advised.



SITUATION
The Lodge can be found accessed from Church Path, but also fronts onto what is surely one the finest roads within this popular coastal town of Bude. The area enjoys stunning views across the canal and towards Summerleaze Beach. A short walk to the end of the road is the Falcon Hotel, Brendon Arms and a little further on, the Crescent Post Office/General Store.   The town itself has an excellent range of local and national stores and a comprehensive range of leisure facilities which include all weather floodlit tennis courts, bowling green and an 18 hole golf course. On the outskirts of town is the A39 "Atlantic Highway" which provides excellent road links North to the larger towns of Bideford and Barnstaple and South further on into Cornwall. Bude has two safe and sandy beaches and a locally funded Victorian Sea pool. A three mile drive along the coastal road is the picturesque coastal village of Widemouth Bay where you will find a fantastic surfing beach and some breath-taking coastal walks.
