property description

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 and space offered by this unique property also creates scope for dual occupancy or the possibility of an annexe.

Located north of the Dartmoor National Park in West Devon, Broadwoodwidger is a picturesque small village set in beautiful unspoilt countryside. The historic market town of Launceston is located approx 9 miles to the West and the nearby A30 provides easy access to Okehampton and Exeter to the East. The market towns of Holsworthy, Hatherleigh and Okehampton provide a range of independent shopping and supermarkets and the nearby village of Ashwater has offers local amenities including a school, a shop with a post office, a parish hall, a church and pub.
The Roadford Lake watersports centre and campsite is popular with kayakers, dinghy sailors and windsurfers and the local countryside provides plenty of attractive walks. Approx plot: 0.77 acre.
