SITUATION Situated in one of Tavistock's most popular residential areas.

One of the finest towns in Devon, the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake, an ancient stannary town that lies on the south-west edge of Dartmoor National Park. With great communications to the nearby city of Plymouth, the town falls either side of the River Tavy and is blessed with one of the south-west's finest pannier markets, a wealth of independent shops along with a choice of supermarkets etc., with recreational facilities including a moorland golf course, a second golf course just out of the town, along with a swimming pool, arts centre, Meadowlands Park tennis and bowling club, football and rugby teams, along with two successful cricket teams in Tavistock and Whitchurch cricket clubs. 

DESCRIPTION Located just off Down Road in an established residential area lies 18 Chaucer Road. Originally a traditional bungalow, but now having two rooms in the roof, this extended and much improved substantial family property offers accommodation comprising: entrance porch/conservatory leading on to an 'L' shaped substantial living room, which in turn leads on to a separate dining room with direct access onto a decked seating area, overlooking the rear garden. This in turn leads to a study and a good size kitchen/breakfast room, a useful side porch with pantry and a wet room/WC. Also leading off the entrance/conservatory is an inner hallway providing access to the master bedroom with ensuite shower room, a further double bedroom, study area, stairs rising to first floor and a substantial bathroom with an oversized bath. On the first floor, there are two sensible size bedrooms, one currently being used as a study. A real feature of the property is the enclosed private rear garden. There is a single garage with parking for three vehicles to the front and further off-road parking to accommodate any family's needs. The property benefits from uPVC double-glazing, gas fired central heating to radiators and the highest tariff available photovoltaic cells that currently produce an income that covers the cost of the property's Council Tax, with the added benefit of low cost electricity. All doors in the main living area are wider than normal to facilitate easy movement through the property. The property will be offered with vacant possession.
