The property dates from about 1834 and it is constructed of red sandstone beneath a thatched roof and with a rounded wing at one end, where the thatched roof is brought down over a verandah on posts. From this end of the house there are some particularly fine views south and east across open countryside to the sea. There is a castellated single-storey extension believed to date from the 1950’s which expanded the kitchen and which has also provided for a shower room and utility room (to which an attractive conservatory has been added).

The accommodation is arranged over several levels and is full of charm and character. Three rooms at the eastern end are circular and there is a fine library with direct access to the gardens.

The gardens are a particular feature and they include attractive terraced lawns, winding gravel pathways, a host of mature trees and shrubs (including rhododendrons and a delightful rose garden) and at the lowest part of the gardens, which adjoin woodland, there is a pond.

The detached annexe provides useful occasional accommodation or studio/workshop space, and includes its own part-covered verandah with fine views. There are excellent parking and garaging facilities, plus a vegetable plot.

The Church Hall adjoins the former United Reformed Church, an impressive building on Dartmouth Road close to Paignton town centre (which is itself the subject of a residential conversion to a single dwelling). All of the town centre amenities and the sea front are within easy reach. The site is close to the bus station and to Paignton Railway Station.

Torbay Council granted planning consent and listed building consent (refs. P/2014/1156 and P/2014/1157) on 9 March 2015 for the conversion of the church hall into five residential apartments and the demolition of an external brick-built boiler room. The planning is deemed to have been implemented as the boiler room has now been demolished. CIL obligations have been discharged.

In addition, plans have been drawn up for two additional flats as a rear extension to the hall. These proposals have met with a positive pre-application response from the planning authority who have stated that they would be likely to gain officer support.

Potential buyers might also take account of the potential for office, leisure and retail use following previous successful planning applications P/2008/0237 and P/2008/0236

The house provides versatile and well planned accommodation which includes five bedrooms, or four bedrooms plus an excellent study or playroom depending upon requirements. Three of the bedrooms are located on the first floor where there is a fine master bedroom suite. The ground floor has been extended to provide a lovely bright dining room with a vaulted ceiling which leads off a very well fitted kitchen and both this room and the lounge open on to a large sundeck.

Lympstone is situated on the eastern side of the beautiful
River Exe estuary and affords excellent access into the Cathedral City of Exeter (7 miles) either by road, rail or along the estuary cycle path. The village has a thriving local community with a good range of local facilities including pubs, shop and post office, church and primary school.

The busy coastal resort of Exmouth with its blue flag sandy beach is only 2 miles to the South, while on the edge of the village is Lympstone Manor, the historic Grade II listed Georgian country house hotel.
