A Grade II Listed house built in 1813 with many original period features including fine marble fireplaces, shutters and ornate ceiling cornicing. All of the principal reception rooms have French doors to the glazed veranda which overlooks the formal parterre garden. We understand Listed Building Consent has recently been applied for to combine the kitchen and the morning room in order to create a large open-plan kitchen/family room. By re-instating the secondary staircase it is possible to separate the second floor from the main house to create a separate 2 bedroom flat with its' own entrance. All of the bedrooms enjoy views either over the parterre and gardens or the Teign Estuary with the rolling the hills of Dartmoor National Park beyond.
The separate coach house is a cosy, detached and very private two storey coach house which would be ideal as luxurious guest accommodation or, a home for family or staff who wish to live independently. This is a charming building with a living room, eat-in kitchen and guest cloakroom on the ground floor and two en-suite double bedrooms with high vaulted ceilings and attractive exposed beams on the first floor.
Perfectly positioned between Dartmoor National Park and the beautiful Devon coastline, lies this charming Regency villa near the centre of the pretty village of Bishopsteignton. Built in 1813 and set in grounds of approximately 1.66 acres, this delightful Grade II Listed home has the rare benefit of having within its mature landscaped gardens many rare specimen trees which were part of an arboretum planted in the early 19th Century.
Bishopsteignton has two churches, a primary school, a health centre, a hotel, a vineyard, two Inns and a brewery selling local ales and ciders. The village also has a General Store, Post Office and Pharmacy.
Less than 2.5 miles to the west of the village lies Teignmouth, which offers an excellent range of shopping facilities including a Waitrose supermarket and many specialised boutique stores in a quaint pedestrianised shopping area. Most of the retail shops tend to be small family run independents that offer something a little different from many other towns. 4 miles to the south west lies Newton Abbot which has a very good range of schools, shops, restaurants, cafés, a weekly market, racecourse as well as the mainline train station with a fast service to London Paddington.
The university town of Exeter, approximately 16 ½ miles away, offers a wide choice of cultural activities with the Barnfield theatre, the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, arts centres and a wealth of good shopping and restaurants, including a John Lewis department store and a Waitrose supermarket. Many primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.
There are frequent rail services from Newton Abbot to London Paddington, taking just over two hours, and Exeter International Airport offers an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights, including 2 flights a day to London City Airport.
