Situation - The Long House is situated in a rural position two miles east of the town of Chudleigh which provides a good range of day-to-day facilities, and just under three miles from the village of Ideford. Though in a rural position, there are a few other properties in the locality though the surrounding agricultural land is owned by the Ugbrooke Estate (Lord Clifford). It is also most conveniently situated for the A380 with access to it being only one mile. It is close to Haldon Forest, an extensive area of Forestry Commission woodland, which is ideal for walking, cycling and riding. The cathedral and university city of Exeter, with all its facilities befitting a centre of its importance, is ten miles.

The House - The property was converted from a substantial stone barn in recent years to an extremely high specification with a large number of modern facilities and high spec fixtures and equipment plus underfloor heating. It offers spacious accommodation
of nearly 4,000 sq ft with its clever layout designed to take full advantage of the wonderful views from the kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor and from the sitting room on the first floor.

Ground Floor - The entrance hall has an oak floor and bespoke wooden staircase with glazed balustrade to first floor. Cloakroom with contemporary suite. The dining room has an oak floor and double glazed double doors leading out to garden. The superb

First Floor - Spacious galleried landing with glazed balustrade and velux roof windows (these veluxs are remote controlled throughout). The sitting room at the end of the house has a barn-style end wall and a virtually full width run of bi-fold hardwood doors
opening to an external timber decked balcony with stainless steel balustrade uprights. Oak floor. Scandanavian wood burning stove on slate hearth. Stunning rural views. Bedroom 4 is of double size with window enjoying rural views with en suite shower room. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are also of a generous size. The family bathroom is a contemporary wet room with large walk-in shower enclosure and white suite of wc, double trough-style basins plus deep panelled bath. At the end of the house is the master bedroom which enjoys rural views, extensive wardrobes and en suite wet room with large shower enclosure and separate jacuzzi bath, wc and basin.

Directions - From the M5 motorway continue on to the A38 and then soon after take the A380 where the road forks, for Torquay. After 3 miles keep left at Ashcombe Cross signposted Teignmouth (B3192) and at the roundabout take the 3rd exit signposted
Chudleigh going back over the road and then take the immediate left signposted Chudleigh. Take this road down through the attractive woods and after half a mile, at the T-junction (Beggars Bush) turn left signposted Chudleigh. After a few hundred
