Situation - Courtenay House is situated in the heart of the bustling town of Bovey Tracey. The town enjoys all amenities and facilities including medical, schooling, veterinary and dental services, deli's, galleries, banks, bakeries, library, places of worship and pubs.

The A38 Devon Expressway, linking Plymouth and Exeter, is approximately 2.5 miles away. There are mainline railway stations to London at Exeter (15 miles) and Newton Abbot (6 miles). The busy market town of Newton Abbot has a comprehensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. The university and cathedral city of Exeter has a wide range of facilities befitting a centre of its importance including excellent dining, shopping, theatre and sporting and recreational pursuits. Bovey Tracey is "the gateway to the moor" and Dartmoor itself offers many thousands of beautiful unspoilt moorland acres in which to pursue a wide range of outdoor activities including walking, riding, cycling and fishing. There are golf courses at Stover, Bovey Castle and Teign Valley.

Description - Courtenay House is a handsome, double fronted, Victorian property. Believed to date from the 1870s when it was known as "The Mission House", it was gifted by Canon Courtenay to the Clewer Sisters (sisters of mercy). For the past two decades, the present owners have used the property as a successful antique's centre and tea rooms as well as having bed and breakfast facilities. There is huge potential to return to residential use or adapt for multi-generational accommodation.

The property enjoys many period features not untypical of a property of its age including high ceilings and gothic-style mullioned arched windows. The canopy entrance porch covers two doors, one leading to the residential side, the other opening to the commercial side.

On the commercial side is a large showroom with three gothic-style mullioned windows leading to a further room presently used as tea rooms and cafe. There is a fitted kitchen with a matching range of eye and base level units, inset sink, 4-ring gas hob with split-level electric oven. Of further note on the ground floor is a rear porch and boiler room, store room and cloakroom.

Residential Quarters - From the inner hallway is a ground floor guest room with bay window to the front as well as an en suite shower room. Turning staircase leads to a large landing off which are three further bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room.

There is a further large room with gothic-style windows currently used as a living room. There is also a family bathroom and utility room/kitchen.

Outside - Stone wall and ornate railings enclose the front garden, with steps leading up from the pavement to the front door. There is a level lawned area and flower borders as well as paved patio area with gate leading to the rear garden. The rear garden enjoys good sized level lawns together with well-stocked borders, a number of mature shrubs and trees and a timber-decked seating area. There is a workshop/store and patio.

Directions - From the A38 take the Drumbridges exit continuing on the A382 towards Bovey Tracey. At the 2nd roundabout turn right into the town centre. Proceed up the hill passing Tesco on the right and Courtenay House can be found after approximately 150 yards on the left hand side.
