There are primary schools at the nearby villages of Parkham and Woolsery. Woolsery has a post office and shop. There is also a small shop and post office at Bucks Cross.
An entrance porch welcomes you into the home with ample space for coats and shoes and a door to the reception hall, featuring slate flooring, stairs to the first floor and doors to all principal rooms.
The charming sitting room is positioned on your right as you enter the home, boasting character tiled flooring, a window seat, exposed wooden beams and a inglenook, containing a bread oven, with a slate hearth below.
The dining room can be found on your left as you step into the property and possesses ample room for sizeable furniture, character tiled flooring, exposed beam and a door to the kitchen / breakfast room.
The kitchen is equipped with a sink unit inset into worktop surface with matching cupboards and drawers below and above. There is an oil fired Rayburn, plumbing for a dishwasher, space for a fridge / freezer and room for a small table and chairs.
A door leads from the kitchen / breakfast room to an inner hallway, providing access to the utility room, sitting room and rear garden.
The utility room includes a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.
On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a family shower room. The white three piece shower room suite is equipped with a close coupled WC, wash hand basin and a double shower with a tiled surround.
To the front of the house are two car ports, off road parking for several vehicles. To the right of the property is a delightfully well maintained side garden with lawn, a small raised pond, a variety of colourful flowers and shrubs and several paved seating areas to choose from, depending on what hour of the day it is. To the left of the house is an adjoining barn which could potentially be utilised should any prospective buyer wish to extend the property, subject to the necessary planning permission.
13 acres of fields surround the property and strongly lend itself to equestrian use. There are also a variety of other outbuildings within the grounds owned by "Higher Waytown Farm".
N.B: The septic tank drainage system for the property is not compliant. The vendors have received quotes for the installation of a new drainage system . To meet the house's current requirements, a septic tank replacement would cost approximately Â£6,000; alternatively, a water treatment system is quoted as approximately Â£12,000.
The property is in the process of being registered.
There is a public right of way to the north of "Lower Shippen" which becomes a lovely country track.
From Bideford proceed along the A39 towards Bude and continue through Horns Cross and past the The Hoops Inn on the right hand side. Half a mile after passing The Hoops Inn take the left hand turning signposted "Broad Parkham" where the driveway to "Trehawke" will be found after a short distance on your left hand side. The driveway for "Trehawke" currently leads to "Higher Waytown Farm".
N.B: "Trehawke" and "Higher Waytown Farm" are being sold by the same vendors. "Higher Waytown Farm" does not have a right of way over the driveway belonging to "Trehawke", however the access to "Higher Waytown Farm" (which is an unclassified county road) is currently rough and therefore not accessible.
