SITUATION This characterful and beautifully presented detached family home is set in a peaceful but easy to reach location just inside the Cornish border surrounded by the attractive wooded countryside of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The River Tamar itself can be reached by a pleasant walk down the quiet country road that leads to the property and there is excellent riding out in the area on minor roads, bridleways and through Duchy of Cornwall woodlands. The detached residence has been much improved and extended by the current owners over recent years and is set in an attractive position on the edge of the small hamlet of Cox Park being the last house before open countryside which runs down to the small village of Latchley half a mile away. There are attractive views of the surrounding countryside and to Kit Hill particularly from the rear of the property, which is West facing and the views can be enjoyed from the extensive decked terrace to the rear of the property and also from the two balconies to either side of the master bedroom suite on the first floor.

From the road double high wooden gates open to an extensive driveway and parking which leads beyond the residence to a garage, games room and onto the stable yard, hay store, tack and feed store and onto the sand school and paddocks beyond all accessed via an access lane with some woodland lying at the bottom of the grounds adjoining Duchy woodland.  

As well as enjoying attractive views of the surrounding countryside towards Kit Hill nearby the property is located within two miles of local shops and services and the A390 is just over 1.25 miles giving easy access to Tavistock and to Callington and leading on to Plymouth via the A388 to the South. The railway station at Gunnislake provides a branch line service to Plymouth with wider facilities, university, theatre, high street and out of town shopping centres along with many other facilities along with being a popular sailing centre. The popular Stannary Town of Tavistock is approximately 7 miles distant with high street shopping, supermarkets, historic town centre with its Pannier Market, primary and secondary education and independent education at Mount Kelly. The open expanse of Dartmoor National Park is just beyond Tavistock and within easy travelling distance. The river can also be accessed via nearby Calstock with trips by boat along the river to Plymouth. The National Trust property of Cotehele lies about 4 miles distant. Also nearby is the Kit Hill country park lying less than 2 miles away. 

DESCRIPTION This comfortable family home has a bright contemporary style and feel after being extended and modified by the current owners with great flare and who have developed the building from the original bungalow including installing a superb first floor master bedroom suite with two balconies, ensuite bathroom and dressing room as well as far reaching views, and installation of a contemporary family bathroom with underfloor heating, stylish kitchen/ dining room, opening through to sitting room with fireplace, doors out to the decked terrace and also with remotely operated mood lighting.
