Munro House is located in tucked away setting only a short, level walk from the centre of the popular and attractive market town of South Molton. The town offers a comprehensive range of amenities including schooling to secondary level, a good variety of shops, Sainsbury's supermarket, Post Office, banking facilities, pubs and cafes. The town also bustles when the popular weekly pannier markets and stock market take place. Communications are excellent with the A361 bypassing the town which provides quick access to the regional centre of Barnstaple to the west together with the spectacular North Devon coastline and Tiverton and the M5 to the east where Tiverton Parkway Station provides a mainline service to London Paddington. Exmoor is also within easy reach with the boundary of the National Park less than five miles away.


Munro House was built in 1892 originally to serve as The Fire Station for South Molton before being converted to a dwelling in more recent years. The attractive, stone built property now offers particularly spacious and adaptable accommodation with the benefit of an integral annexe that would be perfect for a dependent relative or for letting out to provide a handy income. Of particular note is the adjoining double garage with a large loft over that also offers considerable potential for extending the existing accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.


The front door leads into an ENTRANCE LOBBY with coat hanging space and further door into the spacious SITTING ROOM with an ornamental fireplace with timber surround and mantel, fitted bookshelves and stairs to first floor. An opening leads through to the KITCHEN/DINING ROOM with a tiled floor and fitted with a range of units with worktops over together with a matching range of wall mounted units. There are two impressive brick arches along one wall where there is a dual bowl ceramic sink unit and a fitted range cooker with hood over. Further stainless steel 1 bowl sink unit and door to outside.

From the sitting room turning stairs lead to the spacious, FIRST FLOOR LANDING which also has a useful area currently used as a STUDY. BEDROOM 1 is a large double room with exposed roof timbers, fitted book shelving and DRESSING ROOM. The FAMILY BATHROOM is fitted with a panelled bath with shower over, pedestal wash basin, wc, bidet and heated towel rail. BEDROOM 2 is a double room and BEDROOM 3 is a single room. Accessed from bedroom two is a secondary LANDING with a staircase leading down to the garage and a door into a large LOFT ROOM above the garage, previously used as a sculptor's studio. It is considered that this area has considerable potential for conversion to alternative uses or to extend the existing accommodation subject to gaining the necessary consents.

Integral Annexe

Completing the ground floor is an INTEGRAL ANNEXE comprising an INNER HALL which leads into a KITCHENETTE with modern units, double bowl sink unit and electric cooker, off this room is a SHOWER ROOM with WC, vanity wash basin and shower. Off the inner hall is a LIVING ROOM with fitted book shelving, door into BEDROOM 4 and door to garage.


There is a large DOUBLE GARAGE with inspection pit, workbench and wooden sliding doors (one with personal door). The annexe can be accessed separately through the garage if required.


The property is approached over an access driveway flanked by stone walling with a five-bar-gate leading into a large, south-facing WALLED COURTYARD (38' x 22'3 ) providing useful outside space and parking.
