This Grade II listed property originally dates from the 16th century, with the original longhouse being thatch roofed and the other more modern part being under slate. With the accommodation laid out in its current configuration there are eight bedrooms with two of them being on the ground floor seven of these bedrooms are ensuite either. There are also four large reception rooms all with beautiful character features including stone fireplaces and exposed beams. The library is a particular feature with delightful period bookcases. If one wanted to return the house to a business then the current layout would suit this very well. Recently however the owner has made some alterations including another internal staircase and has replaced the one large boiler with two new ones. This means that anyone looking for intergenerational living could have two similar sized properties separate from each other but right next door, this would require another kitchen however there is ample space available for this to be done. Outside to the side of the longhouse is a delightful formal garden area with a granite wall to one side and a hedge the other, there are a number of flower beds and privet hedges. Further round is the main portion of garden currently laid to lawn for easy maintenance, beyond this is a wild garden with a fish pond. To the front of the house through a gate is an enclosed parking area large enough for four cars. The property was run as a hotel for many years and during the 1930's and 1940's was very popular with literary figures including Evelyn Waugh writer of Brideshead Revisited and John Stienbeck. The current owner has the original guest books from this time which are a fascinating look back into the property's past. Chagford The picturesque old market town of Chagford lies deep in the Dartmoor National Park and is a superb location from which to access the open spaces of the high moor as well as the wooded, pastoral landscape of the nearby Teign Valley. With a thriving community, it has a comprehensive range of shops and other facilities including, inns, a primary school, medical, dental and veterinary facilities and churches. Despite the deeply rural atmosphere of the town, the A30 dual carriageway is only approximately 5 miles away for easy access to the motorway and rail networks as well as the cathedral city of Exeter where all major facilities can be found. There are good public transport links between Chagford and Exeter, Newton Abbot and Okehampton. Local sporting facilities include clubs for cricket, football, bowls, tennis and a seasonal open-air swimming pool as well as a golf course nearby at Bovey Castle.
