Christopher’s is thrilled to present this intriguing and unique home to the market. As the name suggests, the property forms part of a former chapel which was converted in the mid-1980s to create a lovely characterful home with flexible accommodation. The property offers a great AIRbnb or second home opportunity, either as a single dwelling or using the ground floor as a separate flat. Until recently, the current owners used the ground floor as a separate 1-bedroom flat for a dependent relative but have now absorbed it back into the larger home.
Stepping through the front door, you are greeted by a spacious entrance hall from which is the ground floor double bedroom with ensuite, and kitchen/lounge that forms part of the potential annexe with a side porch giving a separate access.
On the first floor is the stunning reception room with vaulted ceiling and 13ft high chapel window and original cruck beams which very much hint towards this home’s history. The current owners have always displayed the grandest of Christmas trees in this space which has certainly become a village talking point. Adjacent to this room is the fitted kitchen/breakfast room with charming views across the village and countryside beyond. Stairs from the hall invite you to the second floor where there are 2 further bedrooms and a box room with vaulted ceilings and a family bathroom. A special couple of extra features are the additional mezzanine level in one of the bedrooms and another hidden secret of a small stained-glass window which looks down to the reception room.
Outside, the property is approached from the village lane via a wrought-iron pedestrian gate. From here, you step into the front courtyard garden where there are three separate sitting areas including one with a summerhouse (currently used as a home bar!). The courtyard gives access to both the main chapel door and separate side porch entrance.
The property is offered with no onward chain.

Ugborough is a lovely village nestled in the South Hams area of Devon that has a rich history dating back to the Doomsday Book. Today, there is a primary school, two restaurant/pubs, and the 12th century church flanks one end of the large village square, where the annual fair is still held. The village primary school is within the catchment of the renowned Ivybridge Community College with its World Class Quality Mark Award.
The Salcombe and Yealm estuaries are close by providing water sports facilities and for more comprehensive shopping, there is Ivybridge to the west and Modbury to the south. Both Plymouth and Exeter are within easy commuting distance via the A379 or A38 or indeed Ivybridge’s own train station which also offers mainline services to London.
The nearby town of Ivybridge also offers several places of worship with noteworthy histories, GP and Dental Surgeries, a Minor Injuries Unit, two leisure centres with swimming pools, fitness suites, and various health classes. There is also the charming Watermark with its welcoming library, IT suite, cinema, theatre, coffee shop and conference facilities. If golf is your escape, then there is the 18-hole course at nearby Wrangaton set against the backdrop of the beautiful Ugborough Beacon views. There are also the ever-popular Ivybridge Rugby, Football, Cricket, and Tennis clubs all adding to the community focus of the area.
