SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A detached country home located in a peaceful but not isolated wooded setting close to the pretty village of Sydenham Damerel yet still within easy reach of the popular market town of Tavistock and the open expanses of the Dartmoor National Park.

The house sits in its own grounds, gardens and woodland totalling approximately 3.5 acres with views over the valley. 

Sydenham Damerel is a popular rural hamlet approximately 6 miles from Tavistock and has a Parish Church and The Royal Inn public house is situated in the village of Horsebridge which is approximately one mile away.

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 from Tavistock with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.
 

A detached stone built house of some historical note, probably two smaller miners' cottages, altered and extended over the years to create one substantial dwelling now affording spacious and comfortable family living accommodation arranged over two floors with most rooms taking advantage of the views over the garden and surrounding countryside.

The property is in good order throughout and has clearly been maintained to a high standard. Whilst the house affords all modern comforts, much original period charm and character remain in the form of exposed stonework, exposed beams and A-frames and some super fireplaces, including the sitting room which is kept warm and cosy by a log burning stove. The house is mostly double glazed and is warmed by oil fired central heating. 

Outside, there is a pleasant well-tended formal garden to the front and side of the house whilst to the rear, and extending along the driveway, is a large swaithe of woodland totalling approximately three acres.

OUTSIDE: The house occupies a very quiet and peaceful wooded setting, rural but not isolated, located on the flanks of a small valley and with views extending over the surrounding countryside. From the quiet country lane, a long gravelled driveway leads to a parking and turning area from which a pedestrian gate and path leads to the house.

The formal gardens lie to the front of the property and have been extensively landscaped to provide a level shaped lawn with well stocked and well tended flowering beds and borders, designed to provide an array of seasonal colour. The garden extends to the side of the house where there are more well-stocked beds complete with mature plants, trees and shrubs.
