SITUATION Located in a quiet rural location in the small hamlet of Chaddlehanger only two miles from the popular market town of Tavistock and also close to Lamerton. The house stands in its own generous private garden and land and enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect with far-reaching views stretching across unbroken farmland towards the Tamar Valley and Cornwall.

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. The historic city of Exeter with its airport and links to the motorway network is also within commuting distance.

DESCRIPTION Grade II Listed and of some historical significance, this former manor house dates from the Sixteenth Century and is probably older in parts. Sympathetically restored and maintained in recent years, the house now provides spacious and comfortable family living accommodation which has a warm and welcoming feel about it. Accommodation includes vestibule, dining hall, sitting room, drawing room, hall, kitchen/breakfast room, cloakroom, lobby, boot room, galleried landing, four good sized bedrooms and family bathroom. The house is warmed by an oil fired central heating system via a recently replaced boiler.

The large formal garden, which totals approximately half an acre, is a particularly attractive feature, private and secluded, including a large sun terrace, separate courtyard garden and various outbuildings. Ample private parking is provided. In addition, to the rear of the garden, there is a gently sloping paddock totalling approximately three quarters of an acre.
