Ogbeare Hall is an impressive Grade II* listed manor house for sale in Devon with 100 acres of land. The property dates back to medieval times as illustrated by the wonderful medieval banqueting hall with its carved vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows.

The house was considerably larger until the 1930s when the west wing was demolished to save money on the window tax imposed during that period but the hall still functions as a substantial family home.

Accommodation comprises: reception, hallway, cellars, banqueting hall, drawing room, morning room and characterful kitchen on the ground floor; upstairs are four bedrooms (the master bedroom is en-suite) and a family bathroom and above on the third floor, located in the turret, are two further bedrooms and a WC.

Ogbeare Hall lies three miles north of North Tamerton and the historic Cornish town of Launceston is nine miles to the south and has a wide range of local amenities. Bude on the North Cornish coast is just ten miles to the north west.

    It seems highly unlikely that a wing of the house was demolished in the 1930s to save on the window tax given that window tax was abolished in 1851. Presumably the demolition occurred in the 1830s
