The  Property

The  Church  House,  featured  in  Devon  Life  Magazine,   is   a   picturesque   Grade   II*   Listed   granite   home   in   a   superb   state   of   preservation.      It   is   built   of   Ashlar   granite  with  a  thatched  reed  roof  and  dates  from  the   16th   Century,   although   it   may   have   had   earlier   origins,   having   been   a   hall   house   according   to   structural  evidence.    It  is  now  a  character  home  with   great   atmosphere   with   lime   washed   and   lime   plastered   granite   walls,   exposed   structural   beams   and   timbers   and   an   internal   granite   spiral   staircase.     The   accommodation   is   comfortable   with   a   large   sitting  room  with  two  fireplaces,  a  big  kitchen/dining   room   with   an   Aga   and   a   useful   boot   room   and   w.c.   on  the  ground  floor.    Upstairs  is  a  T.V.  room/library,   a  bathroom  and  three  bedrooms.    Planning  has  been   discussed   to   enlarge   and   alter   the   boot   room   to   create  a  second  internal  staircase  and  a  new  w.c.  and   utility  area.    A  small  cottage  garden  sits  to  the  rear  of   the  house  and  the  adjacent  private  driveway  leads  to   the  1700  sq  ft  (160.5  m2)  ancilliary  barn  at  the  rear   which   sits   by   the   garden   and   the   gently   sloping   pasture  of  approximately  3.5  acres  which  include  an   orchard,  pasture,  gardens  and  a  young  woodland  of   native  trees.

Situation

Located   in   lovely   Throwleigh,   a   village   on   the   very   edge  of  the  open  moor.    From  the  beautiful  pasture   there  is  a  glorious  view  to  the  moor  and  from  the  east   facing   house   there   is   a   view   down   the   village   street   to  the  stone  cross.    Throwleigh  has  a  village  hall  and   pub  in  the  outskirts  and  it  is  only  about  3.5  miles  from   Chagford  or  the  A30  dual  carriageway,  about  5  miles   from  Okehampton  and  19  miles  from  Exeter.
