Chagford latest.

New estate agents on board to market properties in Britain’s ‘best rural place to live’.

Blue Cedar Homes has appointed Fowlers Estate Agents to market its homes on the age-exclusive development of Stannary Gardens in Chagford.

Named as the Best Rural Place to Live in Britain by the Sunday Times in 2015, Chagford was an obvious choice for Blue Cedar Homes’ latest development. Situated just five minutes’ walk from the historic town centre, Stannary Gardens is a development of 15 luxury homes centred around landscaped gardens.

Blue Cedar Homes has appointed local agency Fowlers as its second agency for the development, to market the properties designed specifically for the over 55s. Fowlers offer a wealth of local knowledge as well as a friendly team at its office at the heart of Chagford Town Centre.

The town of 1,500 people, located in Dartmoor National Park, is alive with culture and community, with numerous clubs and pastimes on offer, from tennis and table tennis clubs to Chagford’s infamous open-air swimming pool, which is fed by the river Teign.

Boasting a large selection of independent shops, from antiques to delicatessens, this is the perfect retreat for a leisurely retirement, with those who wish to enjoy an active lifestyle able to do so by exploring the beauty of Dartmoor on their doorstep.

Chagford’s centre is well-loved for its historic status, but the 15th century buildings which adorn its streets are just a taster of the town’s rich history compared to the 13th Century Three Crowns pub and the church of St Michael the Archangel dedicated in 1261.

Stannary Gardens has six apartments and nine houses and gives homebuyers a truly unique opportunity to live close to the buzz of Chagford’s town centre, in a quiet, exclusive setting alongside likeminded retirees. Each house is finished to a high specification with quality fixtures and fittings.

Philip Fowler, owner of Fowlers Estate Agents, said: “We are pleased to be working with Blue Cedar Homes to market Stannary Gardens as the local agent. Chagford is a lively town with a great community spirit, perfect for those who want an active retirement, and we are looking forward to welcoming new residents into this high quality scheme”

A number of properties are still available at Stannary Gardens, all of which come complete with a 10-year NHBC Buildmark warranty, access to the communal gardens and summerhouse as well as a visiting Estate Manager, who is responsible for the general wellbeing and security of the development.
