Additional Information

An impressive, historic and important Georgian Grade II* listed residence situated in a prominent position within the Civil War market town of Great Torrington, Devon. Palmer House was originally constructed and owned by Sir John Palmer, an attorney and former Mayor of Great Torrington, whose wife was the sister of Sir Joshua Reynolds, who was known to have visited the home on a number of occasions, often with other key figures including Samuel Johnson. Other visitors to the residence include Sir William Blackstone, Lord Chancellor Henry Bathurst, and Lord Horatio Nelson. This impressive home retains much of the original features and architecture including several feature open fireplaces, a magnificent half and full galleried landing with large arch window emblazoned with the Palmer coat of arms, original ornate ceiling mouldings, and stripped mahogany doors. The accommodation is arranged over three storeys with up to 10 bedrooms, depending on how you wish to use the rooms.

There are 3 principle reception rooms with one reputed to have been based on the cabinet room at No. 10 Downing Street, with four feature Adam Pillars, two sash windows to the front elevation with restored internal shutters, feature period fireplace with marble hearth and surround with original cast iron insert. There are a number of other rooms which could serve as reception rooms.

Now restored and set in a prime position within the RHS Gardens at Rosemoor (some 3 miles away) is the gazebo which once stood in the gardens at Palmer house. The history surrounding the home also links the church, the Bluecoats and the start of education here in Torrington - according to the history books.

What it offers today is a fine home with the potential to create income (should one wish to), to co-habit with family very comfortably or simply to enjoy indulging all of ones hobbies and interests with a different room for each - well at least up to 20 of them.
