The position of this property is fantastic, being on the edge of the village with uninterrupted views over the adjacent fields and onto the rolling hills of Mid-Devon and glimpses of Dartmoor, it’s a country retreat without feeling isolated. Just a short walk is The Waie Inn serving food and drink and family entertainment making it ideal for families. The larger village of Bow is only a couple of miles away with a local shop and primary school. There is a school bus service from the village for secondary school.
The house itself is a great looking, double fronted property, built in the 1920’s and recently updated which leaves little for a new owner to do. The property had a comprehensive update including new wiring, plumbing and was replastered throughout, as well as the kitchen and bathroom, plus the landscaping externally. The kitchen/diner is well fitted with appliances and plenty of storage under solid wood tops and an oil-fired AGA sets of the kitchen well. The kitchen and living room both have the south facing views over the fields and the living room also has a wood-burning stove. At the rear is a porch, ideal for boots and coats. On the first floor, the two principal bedrooms again have the views and are very well decorated with neutral colours. There is a third bedroom at the rear and then the luxury bathroom with freestanding bath and large shower is a treat too! Worth noting is the large loft with velux window which would make a stunning master bedroom (stp) should more room be desired.
Outside, the driveway in from the country lane had block-paving providing a large parking area and a single garage. There is a raised (and private) patio with hot-tub and BBQ area and then the remainder of the garden is level lawn to the rear. There are timber storage sheds (used as kennel and run) too.
In all, it’s a beautifully presented detached character home with stunning views on the edge of the village, one to take a look at!

DIRECTIONS : From Crediton, head west towards Copplestone and pass through the traffic lights and bear left up the hill onto the A3072 towards Bow. After approx. 1 mile, turn right as signed to Zeal Monachorum and follow the lanes (and signs) for approx. 2 miles. As you approach Zeal Monachorum, West Waie will be found on your right.
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
