Situation - Crooked Chimneys is situated between Cheriton Bishop and Tedburn St Mary. Cheriton Bishop is a thriving community on the eastern flanks of the Dartmoor National Park and has a well regarded pub, post office/stores, health centre, village hall, veterinary surgery along with primary and pre school. The village of Tedburn St Mary has a similar number of facilities. The university and cathedral city of Exeter lies ten miles to the east and has all the amenities one would expect of a centre of its importance including excellent shopping, dining, theatre and sporting amenities. Exeter has two railway stations on the London Paddington and Waterloo lines and an international airport to the east of the city.

Lying on the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park, there is easy access to its many thousands of acres of beautiful unspoilt moorland countryside in which to enjoy a wide range of outdoor pursuits including walking, riding, cycling and fishing.

Description - Crooked Chimneys is a detached Grade II Listed cottage, which the Listed Building Notes state "probably 17th century core, remodelled in the 18th Century and united in the 20th Century". Of plastered cob and stone elevations, beneath thatched and partly tiled roof, it offers a wealth of character features including beamed ceilings, original fireplaces and exposed stonework. There is approaching 2,200 sq ft of accommodation.

Accommodation - From the entrance hall are the principal living rooms. The sitting room and drawing room both have original fireplaces and beamed ceilings. The formal dining room (former dairy) leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted with a range of matching eye and base level units, double electric oven, 5-ring gas hob, integral fridge and space for further appliances. There is ample space for a dining table and chairs. Off the kitchen there is a useful porch/boot room and cloakroom. An inner hall leads to the office, as well as the 5th bedroom, double in size with an en suite shower room.

On the first floor are 4 further double bedrooms and the family bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and all have fine southerly views.

The Grounds - From the lane a five-bar wooden gate leads to a large parking and turning area, leading to the double garage with two up and over doors, power and light supply.

There is approximately half an acre of level, landscaped formal gardens, which are laid predominantly to lawn and interspersed with a number of attractive and well-established flower and shrub beds, together with specimen trees and a garden well. There is a large vegetable plot, together with two greenhouses and a shed.

To the western end of the gardens is half an acre of broadleaf woodland with well-established trees. A gate leads to the 4 acre paddock, which is gently sloping and has a separate gate to the lane.

Overall the property amounts to approximately 4.8 Acres.

Services - Mains electricity and mains water. Private drainage. LPG for central heating.
