Description

A handsome example of a William & Mary Grade
II star listed property located in the heart of Devon's rolling countryside, steeped in history and set in approx. 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens and woodlands. Until recently the property was run as a small boutique hotel but it offers a superb opportunity to be converted to a handsome and imposing country residence.

A Manor House has been on this site since the 12th Century and was once owned by the Tout-Saints family. The current house was built in the reign of William and Mary (1689-1695) and is a prime example of the much-admired architecture of the period. In the mid-1950s it was converted to a hotel and in more recent times has been part of the Eden Hotel Collection, a unique collection of small, high-standard, country house hotels. This wonderful property has an interesting history and
is full of character features. It's comfortable, elegant style lends itself to be converted to a beautiful home subject to the necessary planning consents. Located near all the local beaches,
beauty spots and attractive Devon seaside towns, this is a rare opportunity to purchase an exclusive and special South Hams property.
A charming example of the period Buckland Tout-Saints has wonderful high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms. On entering through the main door, the hall leads to an elegant wooden staircase that serves the first and second floors.
Immediately to the left is a spacious drawing room with a magnificent fire place and off to the right is an elegant dining room. Two further rooms and an office. Down a wooden staircase to the basement is a delightful bright room which opens to the garden terrace, currently used as a
function room. All of the bedrooms are on the upper floors and have en-suites facilities.
Outside the property is set within 4.5 acres of landscaped gardens, sun terraces, woodlands and provides ample parking and magnificent countryside views. The present owners have provided architectural drawings transforming the property once again into a marvellous mansion
home with spacious family accommodation with all the luxuries of the modern 21st Century.
