The property

Chagford 2.2 miles.

Surrounded by 30 acres of farm and parkland and bordering the North Teign River valley, Northill is a luxury, detached, Grade II listed Devon longhouse, dating back to the 14th century.

Located close to Chagford, within the Dartmoor National Park, boasting stunning countryside views across to Chagford and Castle Drogo, this historic property is ideal for a large family or group gathering to celebrate a special occasion.

Northill is accessed via a 1/4 mile private lane and has a granite-faced leat, stream and small clapper bridge to the front.

There’s a small gravelled terrace area, where you can sit out with a morning coffee and soak up your peaceful surroundings.

Step inside the property to discover well- preserved traditional features, including the original (but no longer used) granite spiral staircases, antique furniture and low beams, complimented by contemporary appliances, stylish kitchen and bathroom suites and superb granite slate flooring.

Make your way into the elegant drawing room, which has wonderful views from the picture windows with wide window seats, a selection of sofas to relax on in front of the warming woodburner, enjoying your favourite shows on the TV or a good book from the bookcase.

From here, a staircase leads up to the master bedroom, a vast space with a super-king-size bed, seating area beside the window, a dressing table, and a contemporary en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath, double basin and walk-in shower.

Back downstairs, make your way through the hallway, passing a convenient cloakroom, before taking the step up into the snug, the ideal spot to quietly curl up with a good book.

The contemporary and spacious kitchen boasts granite slate floors, neutral tones mixed with subtle blue hues, and is fully-equipped with all the appliances you could wish for, including a superb Everhot electric range cooker, dishwasher and American-style fridge/freezer, plus an island where you can prepare ingredients for a delicious family meal.

Dinners can be enjoyed together in the traditional dining room, as the woodburning stove provides a cosy ambience, or for a more casual arrangement, use the dining table in the kitchen/breakfast room with TV and woodburning stove to relax in front of in the evenings.

A second cloakroom, boot room for storing coats and shoes, and a utility room with handy washing machine and tumble dryer complete the ground floor layout.

The second set of stairs lead to four further bedrooms; comprising a Chinese-inspired super-king-size double with built in wardrobe, wall plaques, lacquer work, lovely paintings and an en-suite shower room.

A spacious double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom (suite with handheld shower), a further pretty double and a twin, each served by a family bathroom (suite plus hand shower) and a shower room.

There is also a study/office where you can catch up on any work or sit with a book and enjoy a peaceful moment alone.

So that’s five bedrooms, three with en-suite bathrooms and a total of five bathrooms in all.

Spend time in the sun trap terrace garden at the rear of the property, with seating and a fire pit, so you can enjoy evenings with a glass of wine or alfresco dinner, while the former stone barn houses a games room and gym equipment, so you can have a family games night, playing rounds of ping pong or snooker.

Explore the bustling small town of Chagford, just two miles away from the property, where you will find a range of shops and conveniences so you can grab any necessary essentials or gifts for loved ones.

Chagford offers a variety of pubs and cafes serving food should you wish to celebrate a special occasion or simply take a night off from cooking duties.

For a more leisurely activity, take on one of the many scenic walking trails available in the surrounding area, which allows you to further explore the national park, or enjoy a game of tennis at the public tennis court, or perhaps you'd prefer to take a dip at the open-air swimming pool.

Pay a visit to the National Trust-owned Castle Drogo, a medieval 20th century fortress, as well as Scorhill Stone Circle, one of Devon's largest and most intact bronze age stone circles.

Eight miles away lies the bustling market town of Okehampton, home to its own medieval castle, which overlooks a charming wooded river valley, as well as a museum and a children's adventure park, while keen walkers can enjoy easy access to the highest parts of Dartmoor.

Further afield the ancient cathedral city of Exeter is worth a visit, home to a picturesque quayside, award-winning Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Underground Passages attraction.
