Historic Home in Rural Devon

Historic Home in Rural Devon

Charles, South Molton, Exmoor, Devon, UK

Coming soon...

Surrounded by over an acre of park-like gardens peppered with colourful blooms, this unique castle-esque home nestled in rural Devon combines history with luxury in the most spellbinding way imaginable. Curved mullioned windows peep from sandstone walls to frame picture-perfect garden vistas, while the interior affords space for the whole family in stylishly renovated rooms.

Hidden within a patchwork of rolling farmland in the Devonshire countryside, this striking self-catering home sits within ribbons of manicured gardens in the quaint hamlet of Charles. Not far from the rugged beauty of Exmoor National Park and within reach of the North Devon coastline, this luxury home is inextricably intertwined with the land on which it resides. Built on the site of a 6th century chantry and sensitively restored to luxurious specifications, the house is designed to wholly embrace its ancient roots. Castellations, crenulated stone walls and a copper dome adorn the enchanting castle-like exterior, while inside sleek contemporary flourishes enhance the home’s stately rooms to complement and harmonise with the surviving historic features.

Gather in the large kitchen for coffee and crumpets before spilling out across the grounds to enjoy a day of exploration; children will love to let imaginations run wild with this little lost castle backdrop and wildlife pond, while adults recline on the grass to bask in the warmth of the sun. In the cooler months, stone fireplaces with roaring fires, a cosy snug with parquet floor, and a gloriously inviting sitting room beneath the domed ceiling provide plenty of warm nooks in which to sink. Upstairs, three sumptuous bedrooms await, each promising peaceful slumber and sunrise views across the verdant landscape. A multi-generational escape for all seasons, whether gathered around the fire pit on balmy eves or hunkered down to enjoy family games in the dining room; this truly is a unique retreat.
