Combe Haven, 3 Hillsborough Terrace is an impressive Grade 2 listed Georgian Terrace currently comprising three large apartments. The property has limitless potential. Every floor of the building has unrivalled sea views and each apartment comes with its own parking space and designated outdoor area.

Set back from the main road in a raised position, the property overlooks the harbour and Ilfracombe's famous Verity statue. Whilst in need of renovation and possible reconfiguration this really does represent a fantastic investment opportunity.

Each flat has separate water, gas, electricity and fire alarm systems. Appropriate checks have been carried out on gas, fire alarm systems, and electricity supplies up to the present time. The balcony has been completely rebuilt but retains the original railings which have been noted to be of special interest compared with others along the terrace. The roof for Flat 2 was re-slated and the roof terrace for Flat 3 was fibre-glassed and new railings and steps fitted. Recently the decking entrance to Flat 3 has been rebuilt and the Mews door replaced.
Four new double-glazed hardwood sash windows have been fitted at the rear of the property in Flat 3, on floors 3 and 4. In 2022, Flat 2 received new carpets. In early 2023, Flat 1 was painted throughout the ground floor. New gas pipework and meter boxes were re-sited to the rear of the property and new external pipework was fitted to supply the 3 flats in accordance with current regulations.

North Devon has a wealth of simply stunning golden sand beaches and has long been a mecca for British surfers. The area has recently been declared a ‘world surfing reserve’, one of just 12 places on the planet along with Australia’s Golden Coast and Malibu in California.

Apartment One
Apartment one is accessed via a communal entrance hall and occupies the entire ground floor of the building. The spacious living room is centered around an impressive original fire place and has exceptional sea views. The kitchen is entered from the lounge via an open archway, retains many of its original features and would comfortably house a dining table and chairs. Two the rear of the property are two bedrooms, two bathrooms and access onto a private rear courtyard. Other benefits include a substantial basement, with the potential for conversion.

Apartment Two
Apartment two is situated on the first floor of the building and really has the wow factor. The lounge is an old ball room that spans the entire width of the building, taking in both sets of floor to ceiling French doors that look straight out over the Bristol Channel and give dual access onto the sea facing balcony. The room itself retains all of its original features including; window shutters, ornate ceiling rose, cornicing and fire place. The sheer size of the room makes this space the perfect open plan living and dining area. Centrally located in the property is a spacious kitchen, and further is a family bathroom and two bedrooms. One of the bedrooms has a secondary room off it which could be utilised as a child's third bedroom, a study or a large walk in wardrobe.

Apartment Three
Apartment three is set over the top two floors and benefits greatly from having its own private entrance via Hillsborough Mews at the rear of the building. Similar to apartment two it has an expansive living area spanning the width of the building with two large multi panel windows boasting incredible sea views and allowing an abundance of natural light to fill the space. The apartment has a newly decked terrace at the entrance, and a further, more substantial south facing roof terrace, perfect for entertaining through the summer months. The lower floor is finished with a fitted kitchen and open plan dining room.
