Devon House stands in peaceful landscaped grounds of approximately two acres and is within walking distance of Bovey Tracey town centre. Known as the "Gateway to the Moors", this bustling town offers a comprehensive range of shops and amenities including a health centre, library, primary school, inns and churches. The town also benefits from good sporting facilities, including a swimming pool and a sports field/ tennis court. The A38 dual carriageway, linking Exeter and Plymouth to the M5 motorway is within two miles of the town and there are mainline railway stations at Newton Abbot and Exeter. The open spaces of Dartmoor lie just to the west of the town and the South Devon beaches are mostly within half an hour's driving distance.
When you enter the arched porchway you open the front door to a hallway with high ceilings and period features into this beautiful apartment. The property has been lovingly renovated by the current owners who have enjoyed their time here. This is a peaceful and quiet retreat, suitable as a either a main residence or a second home. The rooms are all of a good size with two double bedrooms, one narrowing at one end and a comfortable lounge which also narrows. The property was originally part of the chapel and retains some of its character. There are views from all of the windows overlooking the communal gardens and surrounding countryside.
The kitchen is fitted with wooden fronted cupboards with a built in electric oven, gas hob and space for a fridge freezer and washing machine. The bathroom has a white suite with an electric shower and hot water is supplied by a wall mounted gas boiler.
The beautiful gardens and grounds of Devon House are well cared for and well loved. There is a sweeping driveway up to Devon House and there is ample parking for all the residents and their visitors. Lovely lawns surround the building with plenty of seating areas for all residents to enjoy the ambience of the countryside. Mature trees provide shade and the flower beds provide lots of colour.

" When we first visited Devon House we loved the peace and quiet and its proximity to Dartmoor and the coast. The town is within walking distance and is a busy, thriving community with lots of activities, clubs and societies. We have enjoyed being part of Devon House and learning more about the building and its history. The gardens are always beautiful and the house offers a wonderful sense of community."
