DESCRIPTION A stunning redevelopment of one of Tavistock's most iconic buildings overlooking the Meadows parkland.

Named after the town's most famous son, Sir Francis Drake, this sensitive conversion of a former GPO building breathes new life into this impressive home reminiscent of an 18th Century French chateau. 

The high specification includes a fully integrated bespoke kitchen with Silestone worktops and oak hardwood flooring. Underfloor heating throughout provides a clean and even warmth without the need for unsightly radiators. The bathrooms and ensuites have Villeroy and Boch sanitary and Hansgrohe brassware. The Penthouse has a balcony/ roof terrace. There is allocated parking, cycle and refuse storage and visitor parking space. The property is served by both lift and stair access and has its own dedicated lift to the second floor. The property has a fully integrated fire and burglar alarm system for added levels of security. The luxury open plan living area is dominated by a double-sided chimney breast which offers options for heating and multiple media points. 

The Penthouse occupies the second floor and has the most wonderful views across the tree-lined Meadows parkland towards the town itself with moors in the distance in one direction, and out towards open countryside in the other direction. The high degree of finish of the Penthouse, together with its location, makes this one of the most exclusive properties in the town.
