This former Victorian school building has been lovingly and sympathetically converted to a wonderful six bedroom family home over the last 3 years. Nestling in the beautiful Devon countryside, views extend as far as Bodmin Moor, providing a truly idyllic setting. Prior to its conversion, the main building included a headmaster's house along with the school rooms. This has now been restored into a modern home with a lavish contemporary theme, whilst retaining many original architectural features. The two classrooms now provide exceptionally spacious, open-plan living accommodation, whilst the upper floor and the former headmaster’s house have been seamlessly integrated to form six beautiful bedrooms, as well as an office, a large utility room and a spacious galleried landing. The property also features double glazed windows and doors throughout. As one might expect of a former school, the home comes complete with substantial grounds and out-buildings. These include a small playing field, which still retains much of the original equipment, several stone outbuildings and a modern classroom block. In addition to being a fantastic family home, the flexibility offered by this unique property creates an abundance of opportunities.

Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
At Southgate Estates, we promise to always give honest and well researched advice. We spend time with our clients explaining how we have arrived at our valuation and make genuine recommendations on how to best market every home.
We offer free valuations and never use hard sales techniques to push clients into signing up on the day.
