Burton Hall • nortH tawton • EX20 2DQ

An incredible detached mansion house to over 6,000 square foot with a fascinating history,

gardens & grounds to about 1.4 acres enjoying spectacular Dartmoor views. Full of high

quality character features – a truly amazing property that would not look out of place

on a film set!

Burton Hall is an incredible detached mid Victorian

Grade II listed mansion house superbly located on the

extreme outskirts of north tawton enjoying the most

spectacular views of the Dartmoor hills. the house has

a fascinating & intriguing history, having been originally

built in norway, dismantled in about 1870 by John

Fulford (a wealthy local wool merchant) and shipped

over to England in sections. It was then reconstructed

on its present site, and is built entirely of reputedly

fireproof timber on a massive granite plinth.

the 9 bedroomed accommodation is extremely

capacious, and extends to over 6000 square foot

(plus a large basement). It is currently arranged

to include 2 internal annexes (one on the ground floor

and the other to the first floor), although there is so

much flexibility in possible layouts that this could easily

be altered around to suit. there is also a further

detached bungalow annexe set in the grounds with

its own private gardens.

Burton Hall is virtually completely original, retaining

most of its cladding and hand-painted art nouveau

decoration. Character features include fretted ceiling

roses and cornices, original door furniture and a wide

sweeping staircase. the walls are lined with tongue and

groove planks and some rooms have elaborate cusped

arcading below cornice and dado levels. to the front of

the house is a wide Verandah with central steps leading

down to a large semi-circular lawned garden. the main

entrance has a large central gabled porch with elaborate

fretwork and carved decoration.

the property is set in grounds believed extend to about

1.4 acres in all, with a sweeping private driveway

leading to spacious parking areas for many vehicles,

which really sets the property off beautifully. there are

areas of lawn, numerous timber outbuildings (including

2 garage buildings), many mature trees, hedging, and

well stocked flower beds, children’s play area etc.

In the opinion of the agents, there could be a

possibility of obtaining residential planning permission

within the grounds of the house for an addition dwelling

as the property falls within the settlement boundary

of north tawton. this, naturally, would be subject to

the necessary permissions.

Burton Hall is one of the most intriguing and fascinating

properties that the agent has seen in many years, and is

on the open market for the first time since 1985. It has

incredible presence and most certainly wouldn’t look

out of place on a film set! Definitely one to go and view!
