Tucked away at the end of a quiet road on the edge of the North Devon village of Knowle, Little Stream is a charming 4 bed house with lovely private, enclosed garden edged by a babbling stream. The house is only 10 minutes from the bustling village of Braunton with loads of great shops, pubs and restaurants. The glorious sandy beaches at Saunton Sands, Croyde and Putsborough are also only a short drive away.
There is parking for two cars and you can park a car off the road on the edge of the garden if you want some privacy. The house takes two dogs and the garden is enclosed so dogs could be let out and roam free.
You enter the house from a small front garden and pathway into a bright spacious hallway, which has space for coats and shoes. The lounge is off to the left and has two sofas and reclining arm-chair. There is a cosy wood-burner to take the chill off after a day’s surfing. The owners are surfers so there is surf art-work on most of the walls giving the house a relaxed, chilled feel. The living room also has two coffee tables and a large flat-screen TV with DVD and Sky.
Opposite the living room is a large downstairs bedroom with king-size bed and loads of storage space, including a pine wardrobe and chest-of-draws plus 2 bedside tables with lamps.
At the far end of the hall is a door out to a lovely south facing garden and decked area.
The kitchen is divided into two areas, one next to the doors out to the garden has a table and chairs for 4 people to relax and have a coffee or breakfast.
The kitchen is well equipped with induction hob with four rings. Opposite is a sink and the dishwasher other equipment includes electric double oven (integrated), toaster kettle, a glass cabinet and lots of pots, pans, cutlery and crockery.
Next to the kitchen is a handy utility room with a washing machine, fridge-freezer, micro-wave and iron.
The dining room has a large wood table and chairs which when flipped turns into a pool/snooker table. Beyond the dining room is a door which leads to a family bathroom with walk-in shower, wash-basin and loo. Finally a hidden door which hides a sauna!
