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 offered by this unique property creates an abundance of opportunities.

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.
