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.

Situated off a private driveway, used by this property and two other houses, is this elegant, detached Victorian residence.

The property has lots of parking with a double garage, courtyard and further parking spaces.

Currently divided into three separate units to include the main house with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (3 are en-suite), 3 reception rooms.

There is a two bedroom second floor apartment, which it is believed was the original servants quarters, now providing an ideal flat for teenagers.

There is also a very spacious three bedroom garden flat, with 2 reception rooms, utility and kitchen.

The current owners are in the process of installing a balcony which connects the kitchen with the living room in the main house.

There are many features traditionally associated with Victoriana such as fireplaces, sash windows, dado rails, plat racks, coving, panelled doors and centre roses.

Bellaire is a popular location adjacent to Pilton, which is the historic heart of Barnstaple and was a lace making area in previous times.

Cross Park House has been in the same family for approaching 90 years and has served many purposes during that time.

Barnstaple is the regional centre of North Devon and offers an excellent range of amenities to include Green Lanes Shopping Centre, together with a range of out of town shops. There is also an excellent leisure centre, many places of Worship and railway station which provides access into Exeter.
