Northfield has been in the same family since it was built in 1910. It is a very large semi detached family home with rural views and a good size garden, orchard and vegetable beds, a large garage, parking courtyard and outbuildings. The spacious accommodation is on three floors and comprises generous, bright rooms with high ceilings which are centrally heated by mains gas. On the ground floor there is an entrance porch, hall, boot room, cloakroom, an elegant drawing room, conservatory and a large living room with a handsome Smallbone of Devizes hand built kitchen. On the first floor is a bright landing, a spacious master bedroom with Strachan fitted wardrobes and a lovely ensuite shower and bathroom, a family bathroom, w.c. and three other double bedrooms. On the top floor is another bright landing, four double bedrooms and a shower room. This beautiful home must be viewed to be appreciated. During the Covid19 crisis Fowlers are still open for calls and emails, and many of our properties have 3D laser video tours available for virtual viewings.
Northfield is located in the outskirts of Chagford with views over field at the rear and across the Teign Valley from the two upper floors. It is only about 400 metres from the bustling town square and just a couple of minutes walk from the primary school, pre school and Montessori school. In the summer the open air swimming pool is just a five minute walk away and the town offers other sports facilities including a football and cricket pitch, bowling club, tennis club, a skate park and children's play park. Around The Square is a wide variety of specialist and day to day shops, four pubs, cafes and restaurants and Chagford also has surgeries for doctor, dentist and vet, a library and a parish church, Roman Catholic church and a chapel. The A30 dual carriageway is about 5 miles away and Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
