SITUATION
This wonderful family home is situated in a prime position within the beautifully scenic Dartmoor village of Princetown, being approximately 150m from open moorland yet with all day-to-day amenities close at hand, including shops, cafes and two popular public houses. Famed for its links to the Duchy of Cornwall, the late 17th-century village of Princetown offers a lifestyle that few other nearby locations could claim to match and is perfectly positioned for exploring Dartmoor and all that it has to offer. Far enough onto the high moor to boast stunning, uninterrupted surroundings of granite-topped tors and heather-clad valleys, yet close enough to the thriving town of Tavistock and coastal city of Plymouth to have every desirable convenience and facility on offer, including a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational options, including the

Sporting pursuits in the area are second-to-none, whilst the north and south coasts of Devon and Cornwall are both within easy reach. Transport connections to London and the rest of the UK, via the M5 motorway or mainline railway links, are available at Exeter, 27 miles distant, or Totnes, 21 miles away on the eastern side of Dartmoor.

DESCRIPTION
In our opinion, one of the more prestigious residences in Princetown, this impressive house offers four floors of renovated and immaculately presented accommodation, complemented by attractive gardens and ample off-road parking. The house is solidly built in the traditional, aesthetic mid-Victorian style, with substantial, part-slate tiled granite elevations beneath a pitched slate roof. Internally, the accommodation has 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, of which 2 bedrooms and a bathroom are on the lower ground floor, which could either be incorporated into the main house, or easily utilised as an annexe or for holiday letting. In renovating the house, a blend of contemporary and classical styling has been used throughout to create a superb family home of true comfort and elegance.

ACCOMMODATION
The attractive and hugely characterful accommodation is clearly shown on the floorplan overleaf, being accessed on the ground floor via a vestibule into the reception hallway, which features Victorian-style mosaic floor tiles with underfloor heating, and oak doors to both the principal reception rooms and the study. The large, combined sitting/dining room, overlooking the gardens, is very much the hub of this home. Bathstone fireplaces can be found at both ends of the room, with other notable details including the parquet flooring and period-style mouldings to the walls and architraves. Off the dining area is the stylish, contemporary kitchen, which is very well-equipped with high-gloss cupboards and Corian work surfaces plus a matching island incorporating a designer stainless steel sink, wine cooler and breakfast bar. The kitchen units are finished with downlighting and a range of Smeg appliances, including a fridge/freezer, two ovens and grills, and 5-ring gas hob.

From the hallway, an attractive turning staircase leads to the upper floors, passing a cloakroom on the half-landing. On the first floor are three double bedrooms, two with well-appointed en-suites, and a beautifully finished family bathroom which comprises a freestanding oval bath and shower attachment, a concealed-cistern low-level WC, a wash basin set into a vanity unit and porcelain-tiled flooring. The principal bedroom, as with most the south and east-facing rooms, takes advantage of some fine views across the garden to surrounding moorland. On the second floor are two further large double bedrooms, both with eaves storage and scope for the addition of further en-suites.

The lower ground floor is a self-contained, 2-bedroom apartment and is finished with the same exceptional style as the main accommodation. Currently utilised for holiday letting, and otherwise ideal for use as an annexe, the apartment comprises a good size reception room, separate modern kitchen, two double bedrooms, WC and shower room.

OUTSIDE
Chaplains House is approached through a solid double gate into a large, gravelled parking area, sufficient to accommodate 5-6 vehicles and with a large 16' x 11' timber outbuilding to one side. A tree-lined boundary to the roadside gives a good degree of privacy and laurel hedging has been planted on three sides to increase privacy further. To the rear of the house, a sunken garden has been created incorporating tiered timber decking and seating areas with a paved patio, currently with a hot tub for entertaining guests. The main lawn extends away from the house on the southeast side and overlooks the neighbouring, historic churchyard. An attached outside store room to the southwest completes the picture of this wonderful family home.

HOLIDAY LETTING & INCOME GENERATION
Prospective purchasers should note that the current owner successfully lets the lower ground floor garden level, on a holiday let basis throughout the year generating a very healthy income, and during specific periods of the year the owner lets the whole property - via online advertising, this also generates a notable additional income. Occupancy rates are extremely healthy and reviews are at a 5* level with significant ongoing interest and enquiries. Further details and a breakdown of the figures can be obtained through enquiry with Stags. Other uses, such as a Guest House or Boutique BnB, would also be possible, subject to any necessary consents.

SERVICES
All mains-supplied services are connected. Mains gas-fired central heating throughout. Please note that the Agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.

VIEWINGS
Strictly by appointment with the vendor's appointed Agents, Stags.

DIRECTIONS
From Tavistock, proceed east out of the town on the B3357. Continue across the moors for approx. 6 miles and turn right where indicated for Princetown. Proceed along this road for a further mile, whereupon the property will be found on the right as you pass through the village, as indicated by our For Sale board.
