For Sale
PROPERY DESCRIPTION Stowford Leat originally formed part of Stowford Lodge (which is now known as Stowford Manor) and was commissioned by John Allen the owner of Stowford Paper Mill in 1857. The paper mill itself became responsible for the population growth in Ivybridge during the 'Industrial Revolution' and at one time produced the paper for all postage stamps in Great Britain. Over the years the building was used as John Allen's family residence and also for the future owners and managers of the Paper Mill.

Stowford Leat sits on the West side of the estate, and this impressive building boasts 465 sq m or over 5,000 sq ft of living space.
