Situated just outside of the pretty Mid Devon village of Zeal Monachorum (Zeal Mon-a-cor-um) is a small development of just 5 brand new homes, being completed to a high standard by a local developer. The houses have been well designed with the focus on providing quality homes that fit well in the environment. This plot is due to be completed by the end of November 2022. The ethos of the site, fitting in with the landscape, means each home enjoys views over the adjoining countryside, has great levels of insulation and an eye on sustainability with private water treatment, air source heat pumps and EV charging. It’s worth noting that the roads and landscaping are due to be finished by October 2022 and the site will then start to be occupied. Each home is supplied with a 10 year structural warranty.
Chestnut Barn (approx. 1615 sqft) is a nod to a barn conversion style home with vaulted ceilings to the main living space and an open, light and airy feel throughout with plenty of glass to take in the views. The entrance hall gives access to the kitchen with integrated appliances and quartz tops, which in turn opens into the living space - a flexible room with a real wow factor. Decorative roof timbers will compliment the flooring and give a feeling of open space and add some character. Also on the ground floor is a useful utility room and the 4th bedroom with ensuite which adds flexibility to be used for guests or indeed as a home office. On the first floor, the open landing gives access to the 3 double bedrooms, the principal bedroom enjoying an ensuite plus the family bathroom.
Outside is off-road parking along with an EV charge point. The garden wraps around the house and there’s a great paved seating area to take in the rural vista. The remainder of the garden is lawned and can be fine-tuned by a new owner.

Zeal Monachorum is situated 8 miles northwest of Crediton, hidden within vast and tumultuous farmlands. Its name is of Latin origin ‘Cella Monachorum’– meaning ‘Cell of the Monks’. Like many Devon villages Zeal is home to a number of period properties, and buildings that have a strict conservation status – preserving the traditional beauty expected from rural settlements. Its church is old (understatement) (1235, late Saxon) and in its yard is a yew tree rumoured to have experienced a 1000 birthdays or more (not that anyone celebrates). The village is also known for having the most family friendly inn around, ‘The Waie Inn’ – offering great food & drink, both outdoor and indoor children’s play areas, a heated swimming pool, skittle alley, large function rooms (for weddings, parties etc), an astro turf pitch, squash courts, fishing lake and B&B rooms
