SITUATION A detached bungalow occupying a generous corner plot in a quiet position, located in a well regarded established residential area close to both Tavistock town and Whitchurch Down.

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.
