A detached family home with very flexible accommodation and excellent views, situated in Chagford.

2 The Old Fire Station is a contemporary residence providing flexible accommodation, cleverly designed to maximise views over the surrounding Dartmoor landscape. The raised ground floor accommodation is accessed from a welcoming entrance hall and briefly comprises an extensive open plan kitchen/breakfast/sitting room with lovely views, together with a playroom. The triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room features a range of freestanding units, French doors to the rear terrace and space for a breakfast table, while the dual aspect sitting room has French doors to a raised terrace which has fabulous views towards Dartmoor.

The lower ground floor is currently used as flexible office space for home working but could be reconfigured to be a self-contained annexe with its separate entrance. The office could be a reception room with a kitchen/utility, an adjacent bedroom and en suite bathroom. The larger room has patio doors leading to a decked garden terrace and an adjacent kitchen/utility room.

The first floor accommodation comprises a spacious front aspect master bedroom with a contemporary en suite shower room, two further well-proportioned bedrooms and a good size modern family bathroom. The property’s remaining bedroom, which could be used as a studio, can be found on the second floor with a wealth of natural light admitted by skylights.


2 The Old Fire Station is approached over a shared driveway providing private parking and giving access to the integral double garage and to the workshop/store beneath the raised terrace. The enclosed garden to the side and rear is terraced to provide decked terraces to two levels, ideal for entertaining and al fresco dining, with a raised area of level lawn.


2 The Old Fire Station is situated within the vibrant market town of Chagford, just moments from a wide range of local amenities including shops, a delicatessen, ironmongers, wine merchant, art gallery and boutiques. The village has an OFSTED-rated good primary school, St. Michael’s Church, health and dental centres and excellent sports facilities. In 2015, the town was named by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain’s countryside. Okehampton, 12 miles away, has more extensive shopping facilities, including a Waitrose supermarket, a large sports centre and park, and OFSTED-rated outstanding Okehampton College.

Exeter, approximately 21 miles away, is the most thriving town in the South West, offering a wealth of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a variety of good shopping and restaurants.
