Full description

Chipley is a rural hamlet comprising a handful of properties located off the A383 roughly mid-way between the Dartmoor town of Ashburton and the market town of Newton Abbot. It is set in picturesque rolling countryside yet at the same time highly accessible to the A38 (Plymouth and Exeter) and the new South Devon link road at Newton Abbot for Torquay and the coast. There are schools at nearby Ashburton (secondary), Liverton (primary) and Stover (independent). The rugged landscape of Dartmoor with its wide open spaces is just a five minute car journey away.

Chipley Manor is a Grade II listed former farmhouse which, according to the listing, probably dates from the 1700's. It stands on a slightly elevated site with a bright south-south east aspect overlooking its own grounds, which provide a lovely setting, and the countryside beyond. The interior contains a number of period features such as a fine main staircase, plaster ceiling cornices, window shutters, fireplaces and flagstoned rear hall. The house would now benefit from some improvement in places but makes a very fine family residence or perhaps a home and income from B&B, subject to consents.
