LOCATION
Ilfracombe is a popular resort situated on the North Devon Coast, with an estimated population in the region of 10,500.  The sub regional centre of Barnstaple lies approximately 13 miles to the south.

THE SITUATION
Beechwood enjoys an elevated location within the favoured Torrs area of Ilfracombe.  The situation gives the modern tourist the opportunity to enjoy the Torrs area with its coastal path and far reaching coastal views, as well as being close but set back from the main retail core of the town and harbour.

THE PROPERTY AND CONSTRUCTION
The property would have been constructed in the late Victorian era when the 'well to-do' were having their fine villas constructed by the sea.   The house enjoys a number of period features, including high lofty ceilings, bay windows, ornate mosaic flooring, stained glass windows, original marble fireplaces and an ornate spindle staircase providing an important central feature.   The main building is of three storey construction under a pitched slate roof, there is a latter single storey extension to one side which formerly provided garage / workshop space but now offers additional dining area.  The roof of this extension provides a decked seating and barbecue area.  Given the property is split level there are three entrance points to the building, one at ground floor and two at first floor level.  Given the adaptable nature of the property new owners can configure the property to meet their own needs but at present the ground floor provides dining room, breakfast room, kitchen and lounge bar with 2 further lounges on the first floor.  There are 2 en-suite letting bedrooms at first floor level, 6 on the second floor as well as former owners accommodation on the third floor.  The property is accessed from 2 driveways off Torrs Park, each leading to car parking, with the remainder of the grounds consisting of woodland, patio and lawned areas.  Within the woodland are paths leading to the National Trust owned Torrs coastal footpath.  In total the landholding is circa 2 acres with an additional 3 acres of paddock available by separate negotiation if desired.
