Elizabeth House is a rare opportunity to acquire a freshly refurbished and improved solid granite townhouse set on a private courtyard very close to the centre of Chagford. The total floor area of the property is 1939 sq ft (180.139 sq m) with a particularly generous living room with views to Meldon Hill and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga and brand new major appliances. There is a big master bedroom with an ensuite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom, a stone floored entrance hall and a utility room with a new gas fired central heating boiler. The house is double glazed to the rear and it has all mains services. At the front is a gated walled courtyard with garaging and to the rear is a generous fully enclosed and private walled south facing garden with a view of Meldon Hill. Prior to the refurbishments an architects proposal envisaged integrating the garage into the body of the house, to give four double bedrooms, each with an ensuite bathroom and a ground floor 'Great Room' with a wall of glass opening to the rear garden. This received "in principal" approval from the Darmoor National Park Authority. It is rare to be able to offer a large home such as this so close to all of the great amenities in Chagford and Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing.

Elizabeth House is very well positioned to enjoy the excellent access to Chagford's superb amenities which include day to day and specialist shops, pubs and cafes, a primary school, pre school and Montessori, parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel and excellent sports facilities with a football and cricket pitch, a pavilion, tennis club, bowling club, skate park, children's playground and an open air swimming pool in the summertime.
