In the last 10 years Kenwick has been transformed into a stylish, fun and innovative family home with many contemporary features and lovely usable spaces, some of which have terrific views to the moor. At the front of the house is a practical living area with space for sitting, dining and the kitchen and great views to the moor. There is a utility room/laundry, a bathroom with underfloor heating, a study/work area, four bedrooms and an ensuite wet room and w.c. The rear upper portion of the property has underfloor heating and the house has not only considerable character but has been decorated in an attractive and distinctive style offering spacious accommodation which is also very flexible. It can have two-four bedrooms depending on how you choose to use it with the bedrooms at the rear offering guests privacy and their own w.c. and wet room, whilst the front remains self contained. The garden has been landscaped with granite steps, walls and two terracotta paved patios and there is a good size level lawn at the top which also enjoys the excellent views. Kenwick also owns a 10% share of the field opposite and has recreational use for dog walking, etc. To be fully appreciated this property must be viewed.



Kenwick is sited just at the start of Meldon Road where New Street ends. There are no houses immediately opposite which affords the property a superb view across the Dartmoor countryside to Kestor and the moor itself as well as a view to beautiful Meldon Hill. The access to The Square is a virtually level walk along New Street and access to the commons is easy being only about 250 metres in either direction. Chagford offers a wide selection of specialist and day to day shops, pubs and cafes, a primary school, pre school and Montessori, a parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel. The town has surgeries for doctor, dentist and vet and there is an excellent library. Sports facilities are good with a football and cricket pitch and pavilion, a tennis club, bowling club, skate park and children's playground as well as an open air swimming pool in the summertime. The A30 dual carriageway is only about 5 miles away and Exeter is approximately 20 miles.
