Burrows Booth is a former church hall dating back to 1911, which has been tastefully converted into a highly individual and surprisingly spacious detached home, found in the heart of Bow, a pretty Mid-Devon Village with a great local community.
The unlived in accommodation extends to some 135sqm / 1,450sqft and includes a wonderful double height entrance lobby with large polished floor tiles, underfloor heating and a fantastic hanging light feature, as well as bags of natural light from the sizeable picture window above the entrance porch. The four double bedrooms are found on the ground floor, with the master enjoying a spacious en-suite shower room, with an additional en-suite to the adjacent bedroom and a lovely family bathroom with a freestanding four clawed bath found to the rear. All bath/shower rooms have underfloor heating under their tiled floors, with electric heaters in each bedroom. There is also a handy outside utility area with light, power and plumbing for a washing machine.
The first floor is open-plan with natural light travelling from the front to the back beautifully. The kitchen offers oak worktops, a Belfast sink with oak cover, integrated electric oven and induction hob, plus fridge freezer. Between the breakfast bar and worktop is a nice opening through to the living area, giving defined but open spaces. The reclaimed oak flooring is a lovely feature and there is under eaves storage to both sides and double doors out to the rear garden.
Outside – The rear garden (10m x 5.6m can be accessed from the living room double doors, or via the side access footpath and steps. It is enclosed and south-facing with the level area to the back offering some lovely views. This area will be turfed (the buyer could select stone chippings by negotiation), with a further area of garden ideal for outside dining. There is off-road parking for 2 cars found on Station Road, next to the entrance of the Village Hall.
A huge amount of work has gone into the conversion. Aside of what’s apparent internally, there is a new roof supported by a steel frame, the whole ground floor was dug down, a damp proof membrane added and then concreted plus insulation has also been added wherever possible too.

BOW is a hilltop village on the River Yeo. It sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rdmillennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area. Modern Bow is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket – an idyllic country escape.
