Their service, from beginning to end of the purchase, was excellent from being shown around the property, then chasing as required, through to a successful completion.

A Grade II listed late Georgian terraced house occupying one of the best positions in Ilfracombe with uninterrupted views over the sea to Wales taking in impressive views over the Harbour in the foreground, with the statue of Verity alongside. Hillsborough Terrace was one of the first substantial terraces built in Ilfracombe. We understand 'Rosemullen' was first occupied by a sea captain in around 1840. This impressive property is one of a reducing number of large terraced houses for which Ilfracombe is well known. This property has some truly impressive period features, which can be appreciated by a full internal inspection.The house has been let for the last fifteen years as an HMO, a house in multiple occupancy and it is being sold as a going concern. There are 8 large double letting bedrooms. The rents are currently set at £375pcm and £400pcm. The property is fully licensed as an HMO and compliant with all current regulations. This substantial late Georgian terraced property offers true character accommodation over 4 floors, with elegant turning staircase extending the full height of the property. Originally, the formal living rooms were on the first floor with ornate ceilings, grand door surrounds and full height windows with open sea views and shutters. These are now letting rooms with Room 1 also having a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom and external door to the rear drive. Many of the main rooms face the sea and enjoy open views. The majority of the living rooms have feature fire places. The property benefits from gas central heating. The accommodation is very versatile and could be used in a number of ways and is considered ideal for a large family, dual family use or for those working from home. The property is currently configured as an HMO and comes with kitchen appliances, curtains, carpets and basic furniture for the lounge, dining room and bedrooms.

'Rosemullen' is situated in a prominent elevated Georgian terrace enjoying superb uninterrupted sea views over to the Welsh coast, taking in views of the town, park, coastline and harbour. Damian Hirst's statue of Verity dominates the harbourside and is visible from some of the bedrooms. The town centre is within a short stroll, as is the harbour and the famous Tunnels beaches. Ifracombe offers a good selection of shops and amenities, primary and secondary schooling, the Landmark theatre, golf course, parks and beaches. Barnstaple is North Devon's regional centre and is approximately 10 miles away, offering a larger range of shops and facilities. The region as a whole is accessed via the A361 North Devon Link road, which connects with the Motorway network at Tiverton. Exmoor National Park and the surfing beaches of Croyde and Woolacombe are a short driving distance along the coast, along with the villages of Combe Martin, Lynton and Lynmouth.
