The Old Chapel is situated in the rural village of Chawleigh, set above the eastern slopes of the Taw Valley. The village offers public house, church and post office/stores whilst the nearby small town of Chulmleigh offers a further range of amenities including shopping and educational facilities together with an 18 hole short golf course. Eggesford railway station is about one mile and offers a regular service between Exeter and Barnstaple on the Tarka Line.

The surrounding area is typical rolling Devon countryside and provides a very attractive backdrop to the village and there are a good number of footpaths and bridleways in the vicinity. Chawleigh is within easy motoring distance of Exmoor National Park to the north and Dartmoor National Park to the south, both renowned for their spectacular scenery and excellent walking, riding and fishing. The North Devon coast, with its dramatic rugged coastline, scenery and beaches is also within easy reach by car. The regional centre of Barnstaple is approximately 20 miles to the north west and offers an excellent range of amenities whilst the Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 21 miles to the south.


The Old Chapel, as the name suggests, is a converted Methodist Chapel built in 1822. Planning permission was granted in 1998 for the conversion of the imposing building into a residential dwelling and it has been sympathetically converted whilst retaining period features including arched mullion windows and original vaulted roof timbers. The Chapel is nicely set within its own level plot of gardens with plenty of off-street parking and a fine outlook to the rear over adjoining farm land.


The mainly used side door leads directly into the central HALL with slate tiled floor and hatch to a large loft space that would easily convert to extend the existing accommodation. The large LIVING/DINING ROOM is a triple aspect room with a wood burning stove on a raised slate plinth. A spiral staircase leads up to to a useful MEZZANINE floor above. Glazed double doors lead into an enclosed front entrance PORCH with stained glass windows to both sides, decorative tiled floor and double doors to the outside. The KITCHEN/BREAKFAST ROOM has a tiled floor and is fitted with a matching range of pine fronted wall and base units with work tops over, fitted double oven with hob and extractor hood over and 1 bowl composite sink unit with mixer tap. An opening leads through to a UTILITY ROOM with similar tiled floor, further range of fitted units with stainless steel sink and mixer tap, space and plumbing for washing machine, recess for upright fridge/freezer and oil fired boiler. A rear HALL has a door to the outside and door to CLOAKROOM with WC and wash basin.

Off the main hall are TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS and a FAMILY BATHROOM with panelled corner bath with mixer tap and shower, WC, bidet and pedestal wash basin. The remaining MASTER BEDROOM is a triple aspect room off the kitchen and has a fully tiled EN-SUITE WET ROOM with mixer shower and wash basin.


A driveway leads up a slight incline to a good-sized parking to the side of the Chapel. To the front is a paved area leading to the front door and around to the side. The main area of garden is to the front and is mainly laid to lawn with mature hedging, planted areas and mature trees. To the rear is an area of patio and a further lawned area with a outlook over farm land. Set to the rear of the parking area is a useful timber framed garden shed and greenhouse.
