Situation - Whitchurch adjoins the southern edge of Tavistock on the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park which extends to some 365 square miles renowned for its spectacular scenery with its granite tors, heather clad moorland and wooded valleys bisected by rushing streams and rivers, perfect for riding and walking.
The ancient stannary town Tavistock is a classic West Country market town and has a rich heritage that dates back well into the last millennium. Much of the modern day town centre was developed in the 19th century under the guidance of the 7th Duke of Bedford. Today, Tavistock is a thriving market town with an excellent range of shopping facilities and a full selection of local amenities, including pannier and farmers' market, independent shops, restaurants, galleries and supermarkets. There are exceptional educational facilities in both the state and private sector.
The area provides an unrivalled quality of life for its lucky residents and sporting facilities in the area are excellent. The beautiful South Devon coastline, with its estuaries, beaches and coastal walks is within easy reach. This part of Devon enjoys some of the finest sailing and water sports' waters in the country. For golf enthusiasts, there are excellent golf courses nearby, at Yelverton and Tavistock and St. Mellion. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on a number of local rivers, including the Walkham, Tavy and Tamar.

Description - Keyberry house is an elegant detached Victorian villa of gracious portions and fine internal details set in approximately 3/4 acre of gardens which incorporate a converted coach house. The residence is thought to date from the 1800s and substantially constructed of solid stone masonry walls, rendered and painted externally under a pitched and natural slate roof. The internal floor area covers approximately 4539 sq ft and the dwelling enjoys a south westerly aspect over its front garden and countryside beyond. This delightful country house boasts a host of unspoilt architectural detail of its era including original joinery with high moulded skirting boards and picture rails, moulded panel door frames, etc.
This exceptional property provides proof that classic and contemporary aesthetics can blend together seamlessly creating sophisticated living space encompassed within a practical and family home. The principal reception and bedrooms face to the south and east and enjoy fine views over the mature grounds and surrounding countryside
All the rooms are of grand proportions and today it is a much loved family home with traditional and classically laid out accommodation over two levels with two further bedrooms in the converted loft space. This spacious residence lends itself to a number of uses, primarily as a family home, with annexe facilities or perhaps business use if desired subject to any necessary approvals and is surrounded by lovely gardens, the whole plot measures almost 3/4 of an acre.

Accommodation - Keyberry House has been refurbished and extended in the current term of ownership, to include ancillary accommodation. Today it creates a most impressive seven bedroom family home with one bedroom flat above the double garage, all sitting neatly in around an acre of private level gardens. This house is, arguably, one of the best properties in the town. The house is in excellent decorative order and is presented to a particularly high standard.
The reception accommodation is perfect for entertaining and offers a high degree of flexibility, both the sitting room and drawing room or family room are well proportioned with high ceilings, fireplaces and tall picture windows which flood the interior with natural light and decorative cornice work and panelled doors.
The impressive accommodation is light with the main reception rooms circulating around the central reception and informal dining hall with its sweeping galleried staircase. The large kitchen is particularly appealing and will suit budding chefs and opens directly into the gardens.
The first floor accommodation is also light and spacious with four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a dressing room or nursery. There are two further double bedrooms to the second floor.

Coach House & Stable Block - Situated to the north of Keyberry House is the coach house and stable block. Today it consists of double garage and gym. Above is an impressive one bedroom apartment with doors to the pretty gardens.
