Laburnum House Overview

NO CHAIN - Laburnum House would make an ideal home, a rental property, a holiday home or holiday rental. The current owners are moving 600 metres away in Chagford to their recently purchased dream house, sad to leave this lovely property, but very happy to introduce you to it.

Laburnum House is a large end of terrace granite built home set on a gravelled courtyard on the site of the former Moor Park Hotel. The house was converted from a hotel about 30 years ago and enjoys a very quiet setting with country views to the Teign Valley and dedicated off road parking for the owners and visitors, a real benefit in Chagford.

The house is gas centrally heated and all windows are double glazed making it warm and cosy. It has some surprisingly high ceilings and good natural light through the large former sash window openings, now double glazed.

The sitting room is particularly airy and spacious with a large fireplace and bay window. The dining room, just off the entrance hall, opens out into the well-equipped traditional kitchen area.The house has fitted carpets throughout apart from the vinyl kitchen floor.

On the first floor, which is split level, there are two double bedrooms, one with high ceilings, a single bedroom and a bathroom.

Outside, Laburnum House has a manageable front garden and a shared garden courtyard area to the rear with drying facilities and a small shed.

The house has two very large attic spaces, one used as an office which is fully boarded, tongue and grooved & carpeted and with Velux windows and another with a workbench and currently used as a workshop. Both are accessed by well fitted, high quality pull-down loft ladders.

The house is a lovely family home in a quiet location, close to the town centre. It would also make a lovely second home as it is in a secure private position with great neighbours should you wish to lock it up and leave it. I would certainly recommend a viewing of the house to fully appreciate it and its location.


Laburnum House is set off Lower Street in a quiet spot with dedicated private parking with spaces for visitors. The bustling town square is only about 300m walk away.

The ancient stannary town of Chagford has a wide variety of shops, four pubs, cafes, a hotel and restaurants. It has a primary school, pre-school and Montessori school, The parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel, Medical Centre with doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries. The Library, Jubilee Hall and Endecott House offer venues for many cultural activities and the town is in many ways self-sufficient. Music, film and literary festivals are annual events.

There are excellent sports facilities with a football and cricket pitch with pavilion, a bowling club, tennis club and a heated open air swimming pool in the summertime.

The town is surrounded by riverside, countryside and moorland walks yet the A30 dual carriageway is only 5 miles away and Exeter is only approximately 20 miles. There are regular bus services to Moretonhamstead, Okehampton, Newton Abbot and Exeter, with main rail links at Exeter and Newton Abbot and an airport at Exeter.
