Teign Lawn is an elegant period house believed to date from the early to mid 19th Century.

Original features include corniced ceilings, shuttered French windows, marble fireplace and two staircases. An imposing veranda wraps around the front and side elevations.

The accommodation is spread over three floors and lends itself for easy adaption to multi-generational living, or for a home with income potential. There is a range of traditional and modern buildings set around a courtyard which could make ancillary accommodation or holiday lets, subject to consents. The seller had plans drawn up and made pre-planning enquires for conversion to two units some years ago, further details of which are available from our offices.

The gardens provide privacy and plenty of space for entertaining and areas for growing vegetables plus there is an old swimming pool within a large walled area.

Teign Lawn is approached from Knights Mead, a modern residential developed area, within the village of Chudleigh Knighton which has an excellent general stores, pub, church, village hall and primary school. It enjoys excellent communications via the nearby A38 to the city of Exeter and the national motorway network beyond. The market town of Newton Abbot (main line railway station) is 20 minutes drive and the smaller nearby towns of Chudleigh and Bovey Tracey around 5 minutes.

There are a number of state and independent educational facilities within striking distance including Stover School just 10 minutes’ drive, and Exeter School and The Maynard School less than half an hour away.

Dartmoor National Park and the picturesque Teign Valley are close by and the south Devon coast with its sandy beaches and sheltered coves just half an hours' drive.
