Charter House is a splendid, detached period house with white rendered elevations beneath a slate roof. The property is believed to date back to 17th Century, subsequently extended in the early 19th Century, and is understood to have formerly been Hartland's Parish Vicarage and due to its architectural and historical importance within this AONB village has been Grade II listed.

In the current vendors ownership, the property has been sympathetically restored, inside and out, boasting beautiful original features and extensive gardens that amount to just under 1/3 of an acre. Many of the rooms have period features including it's original fireplaces, restored large sash windows and shutters taking in the most enjoy views over the large gardens at the rear and Hartland village square to the front.

The accommodation is currently arranged as a six bedroom residence and operated as a successful holiday let, but would make a comfortable family home or B&B/guesthouse, consultation rooms, gallery, tea rooms etc subject to planning and permissions.
The accommodation briefly comprises beautiful entrance hallway with period tessellated floor tiles and ornate wooden panelled walls. From the hallway, there is a useful WC, stairs rising to the first floor and doors that lead into the separate sitting room, dining room and living room. From the living room, a door leads into the traditional 20ft kitchen/breakfast room, which has plenty of space for a farmhouse table and chairs. There is also a useful utility room and office.
On the first floor, the spacious landing leads to six bedrooms, bathroom and shower room.
Also from the landing is a second staircase that leads to the second floor attic rooms, which the current owners (using this space as a loft) understand were historically used as Sunday School teaching rooms and housekeepers accommodation.

There is a pretty enclosed picket fence garden to the front and an extensive lawned garden to the rear connecting to further grounds leading to a parking area, which is understood to have once been a grand sweeping driveway leading up to this historical house.

Also within the grounds is a detached small stone cottage, currently used as a home studio/office, ideal for future buyers working from home. The cottage could provide a plethora of opportunities, subject to planning permissions/consents, being converted into consultation room, gym or snug holiday let.
In 1993, Torridge District Council (TDC) granted planning approval for the erection of a detached residential dwelling within the grounds, formerly called Perry House. This has since been reapplied for and approved over the years but has now lapsed, but original details are available from the Torridge District Council website using reference 1/0259/1993.

On entering Hartland village, turn right into the square or around the one way system towards the village Car Park, where the property can be seen.
