Full description

Tenure: Freehold

SITUATION A substantial detached partially converted Chapel located on the south side of the Walkham Valley with potential for further conversion.  

Horrabridge is an attractive village situated 9 miles from Plymouth and 5 miles from Tavistock. It provides shopping facilities and there is a primary school. There are regular bus services to both Plymouth and Tavistock. 


A detached four bedroom partially converted Chapel with scope for further living space built originally in 1878 and then extended shortly after with the addition of an attached Sunday School. We understand the use of the Chapel/Sunday school ceased in the 1950's and the building was then converted into a home in the 1960's. The living space was created in the Sunday School section of the building, leaving the Chapel undeveloped, which is still the case today. The accommodation has been substantially improved in recent years. The Chapel section has most of the original features and is currently used as garage/workshop with masses of potential. The current owner purchased the property in 1981 when there was lapsed planning permission for further conversion in the chapel for two self contained flats. The property sits in an elevated position with southerly views over the village and Walkham Valley offering a landscaped garden and brick paved gated driveway. The accommodation is well presented and comprises of entrance hall, shower room, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, utility room and study area. To the first floor are four bedrooms and bathroom. This versatile property benefits from recently improved PVCu double glazed windows and mains gas central heating with character features and deep sill windows due to the thickness of the stone walls. The majority of the windows face south or westerly therefore guaranteeing the best of the sun and allowing light to pour into the home. The property is perfect for buyers who require a large workshop/garage with plenty of ceiling height or for those who would enjoy converting the chapel into further living space or business use subject to the relevant planning approval.
