An INDIVIDUAL DETACHED BUNGALOW situated on the outskirts of High Bickington allowing breath taking far reaching views of open countryside offering spacious THREE BEDROOM accommodation, all in need of complete modernisation and renovation with good sized GARDEN, OFF-ROAD PARKING and WORKSHOP/GARAGE.
SITUATION High Bickington is a thriving rural village situated approximately two miles from the A377 Exeter/Barnstaple main road offering good local facilities including a small village shop and post office, a primary school, a doctors surgery, an alternative therapies clinic, two public houses, a community hall offering a number of sports clubs and societies and an 18 hole golf course at Libbaton with a club house. The market town of South Molton to the east and Torrington to the west both offer a more comprehensive range of facilities and the local railway station at Umberleigh, 3 miles, provides a rail link between Exeter and Barnstaple. Road link is via the A377 or the North Devon Link Road, which can easily be accessed at South Molton. Barnstaple, North Devon's regional centre, and the Cathedral and University City of Exeter both offer the wide range of shopping, amenities and facilities one would expect from the county's principal town and city. Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, which provides a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minute's drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.

There are excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area with a range of Leisure Centres at Tiverton, Crediton and Barnstaple, near-by tennis courts and clubs, local rugby, football and cricket clubs, fishing in the rivers Taw and Torridge, further near-by golf courses at Libbaton, High Bullen and Down St Mary, excellent walking and riding in all directions, racecourses at Haldon Exeter and Newton Abbot, and sailing and water sports on North Devon's scenic and rugged coastline, being approximately three-quarters of an hour's drive.
