Located in the pretty Devon village of Chawleigh and just a couple of miles from Chulmleigh, The Gables is a detached bungalow with plenty to offer. It is being sold with no onward chain and although it would benefit from some cosmetic improvements (kitchen, bathrooms, carpets, décor), it really has got a lot of space both inside and out. There are uPVC double glazed windows throughout and oil central heating in place. The property has the potential to be extended, either up into the large loft space or to the rear. Depending on requirements, it could be used as 3 bedrooms plus a study, 4 bedrooms or even altered slightly to provide 3 bedrooms plus a self-contained, 1 bedroom annexe.
The footprint is generous with plenty of built in storage and there is a feeling of space from the moment you walk into the hallway. The bedrooms mostly have built in storage too. The family bathroom serves the main part of the accommodation with a second shower room close to bedroom 4. The large living space (split level with just 2 steps) offers a dining and seating area but this may well be opened up by a new owner into the kitchen. The lower level has high ceilings and a wood-burner and sliding doors to the conservatory which opens onto the rear garden.
Outside, to the front is ample parking and a detached garage with electric roller door. Pathways to the side give access to the rear garden with an abundance of established trees and shrubs, plus good areas of lawn. There is a small timber barn and greenhouse and although the garden has begun to be cleared, it’s still a work in progress towards the end. To the side of the property and running outside of the hedge line, is a public footpath out onto the fields. A gate opens to the path from the garden and at the bottom of the “formal garden” is a further area owned by The Gables which is the old orchard. Again this area is a little wild but offers huge potential for those with green fingers or even to leave wild!

DIRECTIONS: From Crediton High Street, head west towards Copplestone. Go through Copplestone, bearing right at the end of the traffic lights and continue on the A377 as far as Eggesford Station. Take the right turn as signed to Chawleigh and proceed up the hill and into the village. The property will be found on the left hand side of the village road as the road starts to climb.
CHAWLEIGH is a village set back from the A377, approximately halfway between the City of Exeter and Barnstaple in North Devon. Less than an hour’s drive from each. It stands on high ground, beyond the Little Dart and Taw Rivers. It features a historic church, fashioned from stone in the early English style, with an embattled tower containing six bells. The village has two traditional inns and a post office/ shop. Eggesford station is only 2.5 miles away, where trains run north and south overlooked by sheer wooded valleys, a prominent feature of the area.
