The popular small town of Chudleigh still retains a village atmosphere with lots of community spirit and character, surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside. Chudleigh sits between Exeter and Newton Abbot, close to the edge of Dartmoor National Park and in the popular Teign Valley. Dartmoor National Park is best known for its striking granite tors, steep wooded river valleys and heather covered moorland, offering a wide selection of recreational opportunities such as walking, cycling, riding and fishing on the River Dart. Many of the region's finest beaches are within easy driving distance. The well regarded Chudleigh Primary School is located in the town along with regular bus services. For secondary schools you have the popular Teign School in Kingsteignton. Chudleigh offers a wealth of local amenities including shops, a cricket field, a swimming pool, football pitches, allotments, parks, grade 1 listed parish church, two doctors’ surgeries, a dentist and a library. For larger shops there are supermarkets in Kingsteignton, Newton Abbot and Exeter. The market towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot have mainline railway stations with direct links to London Paddington, along with Exeter St David’s Station. There is also an international airport in Exeter. The A38 (Devon Expressway), which by-passes the town, provides good access to Plymouth, Exeter and the M5 motorway network. The A380 connects Torbay.


You enter the property through a solid wood arched front door dressed with cast iron fixings into an entrance porch with a wooden storage seat - a clever space saving idea from reclaimed timber. A further solid wood door leads into the inner hallway where stairs rise to the first floor and under stairs storage cupboard. The wooden turning staircase and exposed floorboards show off the character of the property which is a continuous theme throughout. Rising the staircase to the first floor living accommodation you are instantly greeted by the feeling of space. The impressive and stunning features are simply not found in most properties, creating a truly unique and quirky home! The large arched windows with lead detailing to all four aspects creates a wonderfully light and airy feel along with the extremely high and vaulted ceiling which reinforces the feel and is complimented by timber ceiling beams, borders and a timber ceiling fan. In the living area there is room for sofas in front of the log burner with hearth and surround positioned beneath 'The Gospel Hall' plaque - perfect for a cozy winter evening in! There is space for a dining table and chairs and further furniture. This room is a very social room and deserves to be showed off to family and friends with the odd dinner party or cocktail evening! The kitchen area again offers a mixture of character and modern living and has been completed to a high specification. There are a range of lovingly reclaimed and restored base level drawers and further units with dark detailing, to match the granite work surfaces over. There is a dark composite sink with drainer and mixer tap over, an integrated oven and a modern 4 burner gas hob with extractor hood over. The arched window opens to allow for natural ventilation looking out onto the picturesque Clifford Street. There is a loft hatch allowing for additional storage. The ground floor holds the sleeping accommodation and bathroom. The master bedroom is a good sized double room. Currently carpeted with wooden skirting and borders. The remainder of the arched leaded window allows for natural light. Bedroom 2 of the property is another double room which benefits from exposed floorboards with matching skirting and offers natural light via the remainder of the two arched windows to the front aspect shared with the living room above. The master bathroom has partly tiled walls with a tastefully tiled floor, fitted with a 3-piece suite comprising a bathtub with wood paneling, a folding shower screen and a mains shower over, a pedestal basin and a WC. The bathroom also houses the property’s boiler.


The attractive facade of the property can be fully appreciated from the main entrance via Clifford Street, which is one of the oldest streets in Chudleigh. To the front of the property there is a small courtyard area, with space for seating, enclosed by Gothic style wrought iron railings.
