A unique DETACHED CONVERTED CHAPEL bordering open countryside in a prominent position in the Dartmoor National Park with LANDSCAPED GARDENS and DOUBLE GARAGE/WORKSHOP.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A unique converted chapel bordering open countryside in a prominent position in the Dartmoor hamlet of Hoo Meavy and a short distance to open moorland and the city of Plymouth.

Hoo Meavy is a pretty hamlet within the Dartmoor National Park and is within easy reach of the larger village of Yelverton and commuting distance of Plymouth.

A detached four bedroom chapel originally built, we understand in 1850 in the traditional manner and converted into a home around 1988. The conversion has sympathetically utilised the original elements of the chapel including tall arched windows and exposed beams to provide a comfortable and unique family home. The Chapel now enjoys a recently renewed heating system in conjunction with a biomass boiler (MCZ Musa Hydro 22) fitted in 2013 and recent refurbishment to the internal walls. The landscaped gardens encompass the chapel with the rear aspect affording views over surrounding countryside. The property also has useful off road parking and a detached garage/workshop. The accommodation comprises an entrance porch, reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility area, four bedrooms (one with en suite and another currently used as a study) and a family bathroom.
