On the border of Mid and North Devon sits the pretty village of Chawleigh, just a couple of miles from the town of Chulmleigh, it’s got the village feel without being isolated.
The property is practically detached due to only being adjoined to a freestanding wall on the front elevation and definitely has that feel both externally and internally. The stone house is both attractive and grand in it’s appearance and lots of thought has gone into preserving the aesthetic and character of the original house whilst bringing it up to modern day living standards. There’s modern double glazing (sash style on the front) plus central heating and a wood-burner to provide comfort and convenience. The whole house has been very well looked after and a series of improvements have been carried out by the current owners (a list will be available for inspection on request) and it’s clear that there’s little for a new owner to do. One idea, subject to planning is to remove the outbuilding and use the stone to re-build a kitchen extension to the rear. This would in fact probably create more garden as well as enlarging the kitchen.
On the ground floor are two generous reception rooms, currently used as a living room and a dining room with a central staircase to the first floor running from the entrance hall. The kitchen is across the back and there’s a useful utility room and WC too. On the first floor are 4 bedrooms, the 4th bedroom being best used as a small nursery, hobby room or study. The bedrooms are all served by a first floor family bathroom.
Outside, the easy to maintain front garden has a recently planted hedge which will grow to give even greater privacy. There’s off-road parking to the side plus a garage. In the garden is a stone outbuilding which has potential to alter/improve to suit a new buyer. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn with planted beds for veggies or flowers and is a private, level and safe space which faces southwest so enjoys the sunshine.
