Property Description

Full description

Murchington Farmhouse is a substantial, largely granite-built house with a recently combed thatched roof. It is believed to date back to the 16th Century and offers very well-presented accommodation which boasts a host of appealing character features. Outside there is a large and beautifully landscaped garden which backs onto farmland, and excellent parking and garage facilities.

Murchington is a quiet village about one mile from the ancient stannary town of Chagford, on the eastern side of Dartmoor just above the Teign Valley. Murchington Farmhouse is situated off the public highway, in an ancient cluster of granite-built houses, and set behind its own gated entrance.
