SITUATION Conveniently located close to and within easy walking distance of Tavistock town centre and the impressive array of amenities therein.

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

DESCRIPTION Now requiring complete modernisation, this handsome double fronted period townhouse is constructed of local Hurdwick stone with granite quoins and detail beneath a pitched slate roof and offers spacious accommodation arranged over two floors, briefly comprising a central hallway, sitting room, separate dining room, kitchen, pantry, four bedrooms (one with ensuite facilities) and shower room.

Many original features have been retained including picture rails, four-panel doors, cord sash windows and period fireplaces. There is a small enclosed courtyard at the rear with coal bunker, a small side garden and steps leading up to a much larger rear garden arranged in level terraces with views to Dartmoor.
