Full description

This rare, highly impressive converted church was originally built in 1887 as a Syonist Abbey. In 1925 the Redemptoristine Order took over and they lived and worked at the convent until 1990 when they relocated to Liverpool. The whole convent was then divided into six residences, which include the converted church and the old presbytery.

The Church, which benefits from having an architect designed conversion, retains a wealth of character and original features throughout, including the marble columns, vaulted ceilings and a beautifully detailed stained glass window. Sympathetically converted to provide a home of impressive proportions.

Set on the fringes of the popular small town of Chudleigh, surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside. There are regular bus routes and a good range of shops including a Co-Operative.
