Built in the 1800s, this granite mill was converted to houses in the 1970s and No.4 comprises a tall granite home which has barely begun to realise its potential. It has a large basement with flagstone floor, an upper ground floor entrance hall with a sitting room, a kitchen/dining room and a bathroom and on the first floor there are three bedrooms. Above is a very large floored attic area with a high underfelted slate roof and further mezzanine potential. The house has gas fired central heating and is comfortable but basic. This is a superb opportunity to acquire part of a solid granite mill, extend into the upper levels and create a wonderful contemporary style home with glorious views along the River Teign and to the moor.


Rooms

Situation

Located in the countryside alongside the Teign River and about 0.6 of a mile from the Square in Chagford. The town offers a wide variety of day to day and specialist shops, a primary school, pre school and Montessori, a parish church, Roman Catholic church and chapel and surgeries for doctors, dentists and vets. There are four pubs and numerous tea rooms, cafes and restaurants. The area has many riverside, countryside and moorland walks and there are good sports facilities with an open air pool in the summertime, a football and cricket pitch with pavilion and a bowling club, tennis club and skate park. Exeter is approximately 20 miles and the A30 dual carriageway approximately 5 miles.

Entrance

A broad flight of concrete steps lead up to the recessed front door.

Entrance hall

A panelled and part glazed front door leads into the entrance hall which has a staircase to the first floor with a large understairs cupboard and carved and turned balusters. A beam which runs front to back of the building provides the dividing marker for the hall and walls to the sitting room and kitchen/dining room. There is a single panel radiator and a wall mounted circuit breaker box and metres. Two pendant lights are fitted.

Sitting room - 16' 5'' x 11' 11'' (5.00m x 3.63m)

A bright sitting room with two large Upvc double glazed windows, a fireplace with a dressed granite hearth, a wooden surround and mantel with red tiled inserts and a fitted gas/coal grate. There are views to fields, a pine floor, a picture rail, a TV point and a large single panel radiator.

Kitchen/dining room - 10' 11'' x 10' 10'' (3.32m x 3.30m) plus store

This bright kitchen has a large single glazed multi paned window looking out over the mill race, a deep tiled cill, a pine floor and a range of fitted base and wall cabinets with hardwood doors and drawer fronts, some glazed display cupboards, roll top wood effect work tops and tiled splashbacks. There is ample space for a good size dining table and chairs and space for a freestanding gas cooker and fridge/freezer. A one and a half bowl stainless steel sink is fitted, and a wall mounted Worcester gas fired central heating boiler. Set into the rear wall is a latched door which originally would have led to the decommissioned stairwell turret at the rear of the house. It is now sealed off and the former landing area is used as a shelved store room with a single glazed side window.

Bathroom

This is fitted with a panelled bath with shower/mixer taps, a fully tiled shower surround and splashbacks and a glazed shower screen. A pedestal wash hand basin is fitted, a low level w.c. a Upvc double glazed window, a vinyl floor, a ceiling light point and a single panel radiator.

First floor landing

This is pine floored with painted panelled doors to all rooms and a loft hatch to the upper floored attic.

Bedroom 1 - 15' 8'' x 14' 8'' (4.77m x 4.47m)

A spacious room with three Upvc double glazed windows with views to the countryside, pine floors, a picture rail, a double panel radiator, and two glazed internal window panels allowing light to the landing.

Bedroom 2 - 11' 10'' x 11' 8'' (3.60m x 3.55m)

A Upvc double glazed window overlooks the mill race and there is a built in closet with a latched door and shelving, a pendant light point, picture rail, pine floor, a fitted pedestal wash hand basin and a single panel radiator.

Bedroom 3 - 8' 8'' x 5' 6'' (2.64m x 1.68m)

A single bedroom with a Upvc double glazed window with a view over the millrace, a pine floor and a single panel radiator.

Attic area - 27' 11'' x 17' 8'' (8.50m x 5.38m)

This very large space is open into the roof trusses and looks at the felted underside of the slate roof. A velux double glazed skylight is fitted and three Upvc double glazed windows and a fourth at the rear looks out to the countryside, along the River Teign and to the moor. The floor has been mostly panelled and there is an original fireplace opening. At the rear is a bricked up window opening which would look into the roof of the stairwell turret which was added after the mill was originally built. It may be possible to open this up and recommission the staircase turret to serve all the floors from basement to attic. Additionally it has a large roof space which could be adapted as a mezzanine floor. There is plenty of room for this subject to building regulations.

Basement - 28' 2'' x 17' 9'' (8.58m x 5.41m)

A pair of wooden double doors opens into a storage area which has a further pair of doors to a large basement with granite flagstone floors, and a single size pedestrian door to a yard at the rear. An opening leads into the base of the decommissioned stairwell turret where the lower flight of stairs has been removed as the stairwell does not now serve the other levels. The basement has a timber and metal division separating storage from a workshop area.

Yard - 29' 4'' x 23' 10'' (8.93m x 7.26m)

Accessed from the basement. This yard is laid to concrete and sits alongside the mill race with a recently repointed granite wall and modern fencing panels dividing it from the garden of No.3

Parking

The driveway immediately in front of the house is in the ownership of No.4 and parking can be against the granite wall opposite or, for a smaller car, just outside the double doors to the basement.

Garden - 62' 4'' x 19' 7'' (18.98m x 5.96m)

This level garden is set by the River Teign with a low granite wall to the river side. It has a pedestrian access panel and is laid to grass. The views are delightful.
