Full description

SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED house with 1.5 ACRES OF GARDENS AND GROUNDS - Ideal FAMILY HOME, plus BARN for conversion (subject to planning to create extra accommodation), oil central heating, parking

Orchard Lea is a substantial detached residence located on the outskirts of the mid Devon village of Bow, within easy walking distance of the excellent range of amenities on offer in the village.

The house offers newly refurbished and very spacious period accommodation having been subject to a major programme of renovation and modernisation with many of the lovely period character features having been retained and restored including exposed ceiling beams and window lintels, exposed wall timbers, and lovely fireplaces, etc. The kitchen in particular is a fine room with its high vaulted ceiling giving a lovely feeling of sociable space, having a range of bespoke fitted units with polished granite worktops and white doors with long stainless handles.

Adjoining to the rear is a large 2-storey stone barn which has fantastic potential to convert into extra accommodation, or an annexe to the main house (obviously subject to planning permission), although it is very useful in its current form as a large workshop/store etc.

There is a driveway to the side leading to a central courtyard which provides a sheltered and secluded parking area and garaging.

The large garden lies beyond and enjoys magnificent panoramic rural views of the adjoining open farmland, and there is a large paddock which slopes away gently to the north and would be ideal for a pony, etc.  In all the garden and land is believed to extend to about 1.5 acres.

DIRECTIONS From Crediton take the A377 towards Copplestone.  When in Copplestone fork left onto the A3072 and follow this road for about 3 miles until arriving in Bow. On entering the village of Bow, Orchard Lea will be seen on the right before reaching the centre of the village.
Bow is a hilltop village on the River Yeo. It sits at the edge of an expansive, wild piece of country, bordered by wind-swept fields of wheat, shadowed by Dartmoor in the distance. It shares a church and common history with the nearby hamlet of Nymet Tracey. ‘Nymet’ means Sacred Grove in Celtic and to the west of Bow is a 3rd millennium BC woodhenge, once a place of spiritual significance for Pagan worshippers in the area. Modern Bow is a peaceful, family-friendly village with a rustic country pub, a popular primary school and a Cooperative mini supermarket – an idyllic country escape.
