Full Property Details

What a fantastic opportunity to create a wonderful waterside home in the highly sought-after village of Sampford Peverell. Full of character, history, and offering far-reaching views.

This is already a lovely home but there is an awful lot of potential yet to be taken advantage of.
Part of the house is believed to be the original ‘Canal Office’ which is now a large open room – great for an artist’s studio, but moreover, with the relevant planning permission, I am sure that something wonderful could be created. I can picture an incredible first-floor living room with an oak framed, fully glazed elevation making the most of the far-reaching views over the canal, and perhaps bedrooms and a bathroom below. There is access from both sides of the house, for vehicles, offering the ability to create an annex or to run a business without interfering with home life.
The existing house already offers extensive accommodation with storerooms below on the lower ground floor, that also have potential as further accommodation, or simply provide very useful storage.

The property is best approached from The Wharf (the parking area alongside the canal), and whilst a front door is found on the roadside of the property, the vendor tends to use the kitchen door which is found at the far end of the house. The kitchen is a good size with plenty of space for a dining table. Stairs lead up from the kitchen to a large en-suite bedroom, which is independent to the rest of the house – perfect for a teenager or relative wishing for a bit of independence.

At the front of the house, the dining room, accessed from the kitchen, has patio doors opening out and onto the raised deck. A door leads into the sitting room, which was once two separate rooms, now creating a peaceful space with a stove at one end and a fireplace at the other. From here, French doors open out and onto the deck, and with a southerly aspect the sunlight streams in, creating a lovely seating area – enjoy the view or relax and read a book! From an inner hall, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor where a number of storage areas are found, which could also be developed.
Upstairs, in the main house, there are four double bedrooms and one bathroom. The main bedroom leads into a dressing area and a walk-in wardrobe. We understand that there used to be an en-suite in here, which could be reinstated.

The garden is nicely enclosed and being south facing offers a real sun trap in the summer. A pretty archway leads to the canal bank which, in the past has been used to while away many an enjoyable hour with evening meals, social gatherings, and children playing. This could be turned into something truly wonderful.

Within the garden is a traditional greenhouse and a stone store, known by the vendors as the ‘boat house’. The old stables are located under the canal office and are now better suited for storing your canoe rather than a pony!

From J27 of the M5 head west, sign posted for North Devon. Exit at the first slip road, turning left at the top and continue into the village of Sampford Peverell. After crossing over the canal bridge, you will see a service lane on the left. Turn in here and the property will be seen straight ahead.
