SITUATION (CHULMLEIGH)

Chulmleigh is a small but busy town set in the heart of rural Devon. It is the centre for an active and friendly community and offers a good range of local shops including a bakery, dairy, newsagent, florists, hairdressers etc, along with the excellent Chulmleigh Academy offering schooling from the ages of 3 to 16 years of age, health centre, dental surgery, Post Office, churches, library, two public houses and a community run Sports Centre and a short 18 hole golf course. The market town of South Molton to the north and Crediton to the south both offer a more comprehensive range of facilities and the local railway station at Eggesford, 2 miles, provides a rail link between Exeter and Barnstaple. Road link is via the A377 or the North Devon Link Road, which can easily be accessed at South Molton. Barnstaple, North Devon’s regional centre, and the Cathedral and University city of Exeter both offer the wide range of shopping, amenities and facilities one would expect from the county’s principal town and city. Tiverton, the M5 motorway at Junction 27 and Tiverton Parkway station, which provides a fast Intercity rail link to London Paddington, are both approximately forty-five minutes drive. There is also an international airport at Exeter.

There are excellent recreational and sporting facilities in the area with a range of Leisure Centres at South Molton, Tiverton, Crediton and Barnstaple, near-by tennis courts and clubs, local rugby, football and cricket clubs, fishing in the rivers Taw and Torridge, further near-by golf courses at Libbaton, High Bullen and Down St Mary, excellent walking and riding in all directions, racecourses at Haldon Exeter and Newton Abbot, and sailing and watersports on North Devons scenic and rugged coastline, being approximately three-quarters of an hours drive.

Dating back in part to the 16th Century, Silver House is a substantial Grade II Listed character house situated in the centre of Chulmleigh, a short walk from the towns shops and amenities being of traditional stone and cob construction under a thatched and slate roof with a more recent single storey addition to the rear also under an asbestos tiled roof (AGENT NOTE: potentially asbestos or fibre cement, survey required to be sure) encompassing the Kitchen/Breakfast Room, all with rendered and colour washed elevations.

The exceptionally spacious and well laid out accommodation is arranged over two floors and briefly comprises an Entrance Hall, a Dining Room, an Inner Hall with access to the attached Outbuilding, a Cloakroom, a Sitting Room, and a Kitchen/Breakfast Room, whilst on the first floor there are three good sized Bedrooms and a Bathroom.
