ABOUT THE PROPERTY
3 Oatlands Avenue represents a superb four bedroomed executive style detached family residence set within an exclusive collection of properties on a private road and located on the edge of the desirable village of Bishops Tawton, yet close to Barnstaple town. The property occupies a large plot with established gardens, two entrance driveways and garden office together with a useful cellar. It is thought there is potential for enlargement of the accommodation and/or the addition of a garage/workshop to the side of the dwelling, if required and subject to any appropriate consents.
Believed to date from the 1930’s, the property exhibits charming period features including an open fireplace, stripped pine doors and beautifully proportioned rooms with large bay windows and high ceilings.
The extremely versatile accommodation comprises; an entrance porch leading into a spacious main hall, large living and sitting rooms with bay windows, well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room with openings to a dining room/conservatory, a separate study/office, side entrance hall and a cloakroom. Between the sitting room and kitchen is an attractive double sided woodburning stove. On the first floor is a large light and airy landing, four good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom, whilst beneath the ground floor is a useful cellar divided into three useful store rooms.

3 Oatlands Avenue is approached off a no through private lane and via two gated entrance driveways providing ample parking to the front of the property. A large gravelled area is located to the side of the property where former planning was approved for the enlargement of the accommodation incorporating a garage with accommodation above. Whilst this planning permission has now lapsed, we have been informed that the relevant commencement conditions were discharged due to works being implemented prior to the expiration of the consent and therefore may remain valid. This area leads to a rear raised patio and steps lead to the large enclosed garden, laid mainly to lawn with established flower and shrub beds, a pretty pond and mature trees, enjoying a good degree of privacy.
