Situation - Bishopsteignton is a large village, on the banks of the Teign Estuary, located 2 miles from Teignmouth and 4 miles from Newton Abbot, the latter having a mainline railway station with direct links to London Paddington. The village offers a good range of facilities including shop, post office, chemist, garage, garden centre, vineyard, pubs, hotel and restaurant.

This characterful five bedroom home offers over 2,200sq ft of accommodation, with a unique layout and a wonderful turreted staircase. A detached cottage (969sq ft), currently listed for business use, could be reverted to a spacious two bedroom annexe, subject to the necessary consents.
