The Chantry has been a well loved and cherished family home for almost 36 years accommodating 3 generations and also the perfect venue for 3 family wedding celebrations which followed Marriage Ceremonies at the early 15th Century St Georges Church set to the rear.

The land on which The Chantry stands is thought to be part of a Chantry bequest in 1537 by Dame Anne St Leger of Annery for her husband Joseph. A small brass memorial tablet to him can be seen in the Church.

The main part of the house was built by the Saltren-Willets of Petticombe in 1833 with East Wing and part of the West Wing considered to be at least early 18th Century. The latest addition to the West Wing was in 1982.

Early viewing is highly recommended due to the property being realistically priced.


These particulars, whilst believed to be accurate are set out as a general guideline and do not constitute any part of an offer or contract. Intending Purchasers should not rely on them as statements of representation of fact, but must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to their accuracy. Please note that we have not tested any apparatus, equipment, fixtures, fittings or services including gas central heating and so cannot verify they are in working order or fit for their purpose.
