SITUATION An attached barn conversion in a delightful and peaceful rural but not isolated position just two miles to the west of Tavistock, and one of just four properties in the immediate vicinity.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. Additional facilities include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

DESCRIPTION Offered for sale with no onward chain, this former shippon has been converted by the current owners into a well thought-out, spacious three bedroom barn conversion with light and airy accommodation arranged over two floors. The barn has been finished to a high standard and the characterful accommodation includes attractive features such as A-framed vaulted ceilings, exposed ceiling timbers, arrow slit windows and wooden floorboards in the living room and all three bedrooms. The property is warmed by oil fired central heating and there are timber framed double glazed windows and doors on the ground floor with a number of Velux roof lights on the first floor providing plenty of natural light. 

Outside, the property is approached via a shared lane to the front with off-road parking for two vehicles which leads to a raised garden area to the front of the property enjoying the attractive rural views, whilst to the rear of the property there is a delightful enclosed and level courtyard garden with a full length patio accessed from each of the downstairs rooms.
