DESCRIPTION A former nursing and care home, which closed as a business at the end of November 2015, offering versatile accommodation arranged over three floors with scope and potential for a number of possible uses including the reinstatement of its original residential use, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Originally three substantial terraced period houses, which have been extended at the rear and inter-connected to provide the current accommodation. Two of the original staircases remain, and a lift has been installed between the ground, first, and second floors. A large paved terrace provides the frontage to the building whilst there are courtyard gardens to the rear, together with a detached building housing the laundry and providing further storage space. This area may provide potential parking space for a number of vehicles (subject to the necessary consent).

In 2015 a planning application (0411/15) was submitted with the intention of improving the viability of the Home by creating two further rooms and an additional lounge. Although the application was approved, the works have not been carried out, but this potential remains.

The attractive bay-fronted property stands close to the heart of the moorland village of Yelverton which has a useful selection of shops, including the Coop supermarket, delicatessen, hairdressers, garage and hotel. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is around 6 miles to the north, with the historic naval port of Plymouth about 10 miles to the south. Yelverton has regular bus services to both Tavistock and Plymouth, where the national rail network provides connections to London and countless other destinations. Plymouth also has cross-channel ferry services to both France and Spain. Sporting and Leisure facilities throughout the region are excellent, the Cornish beaches are within striking distance, and with Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles of stunning open countryside, there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to find. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries, and there are golf courses at Yelverton and Tavistock with numerous others throughout the region. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.

The floorplans show the general layout of the building as it stands. Where possible, we have endeavoured to show the room dimensions as the maximum measurements. This includes space which has been provided for bathroom/shower room/toilet facilities. The rooms have been numbered to correspond with the room numbers as allocated within the Nursing Home.

ACCOMMODATION Reference made to any fixture, fittings, appliances or any of the building services does not imply that they are in working order or have been tested by us. Purchasers should establish the suitability and working condition of these items and services themselves.
