SITUATION Located in a peaceful and secluded setting with no near neighbours on the fringes of open moorland at West Down and Double Waters yet still within easy reach of Tavistock town centre and the extensive 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 This stone built detached former Lodge was previously part of the extensive Walreddon Estate but has been in private hands for many years. The Lodge has been extended to provide two bedroom accommodation which is now in need of modernisation and refurbishment. In addition, there is a separate detached garage/workshop with a studio above which perhaps could be repurposed to provide additional accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The Lodge stands in extensive grounds and formal gardens of approximately half an acre. There are no near neighbours and the property enjoys a high degree of privacy and seclusion.  

ACCOMMODATION Reference made to any fixture, fittings, appliances or any of the building services does not imply that they are in working order or have been tested by us. Purchasers should establish the suitability and working condition of these items and services themselves.

The accommodation, together with approximate room sizes, is as follows: 

ENTRANCE DOOR A solid timber gothic-style swept head entrance door with wrought iron studs, heavy hinges and bolts which was probably salvaged from the original Lodge. 

ENTRANCE PORCH 7' 5" x 5' (2.26m x 1.52m) Windows to side and rear. Opaque glazed internal door to: 

DINING ROOM 14' 9" x 11' 1" (4.5m x 3.38m) Textured ceiling; two radiators; dual aspect windows to side and rear with views over garden and valley. Sliding doors to: 

SITTING ROOM 18' 5" x 14' 9" (5.61m x 4.5m) Ornate woodburning stove against an exposed stone wall over a slate hearth; textured ceiling; radiator; dual aspect windows to side and rear with views over garden and valley. Half glazed door to: 

SUN ROOM 14' 8" x 6' 9" (4.47m x 2.06m) Radiator; full width picture window overlooking the garden; glazed door to: 

CONSERVATORY Wrapping around the front and side of The Lodge is a timber framed conservatory with corrugated roof; opening fanlights; tap; two external doors to driveway and garden.

OUTSIDE: The property is approached from the roadside via a five bar gate set between substantial granite posts leading to a concreted private driveway providing ample parking and turning, and access to the: 

GARAGE/WORKSHOP/STUDIO This large detached building incorporates a garage with workshop behind, gardener's loo and store room with a large, two room studio above. The building is now in disrepair and, in our opinion, it is unsafe to enter the upstairs rooms. The space available is as follows: 

STORE ROOM 10' x 6' 9" (3.05m x 2.06m) Glazed door to driveway. 

GARDENER'S WC Close coupled WC; wash handbasin. 

GARAGE 16' 2" x 12' 6" (4.93m x 3.81m) Up and over door. Concrete steps down to: 

WORKSHOP 15' 4" x 9' 7" (4.67m x 2.92m)  

FIRST FLOOR:  

STUDIO:  

ROOM ONE 20' x 14' 4" (6.1m x 4.37m) Two windows to front. 

ROOM TWO 20' x 14' 8" (6.1m x 4.47m)  

To the side of the garage there is a lean-to log store (measuring approximately 17' 6" x 9' 5").

 

GARDENS Adjacent to the driveway, there is an ornamental garden with shallow beds connected by paths which although now overgrown would have once provided a dazzling array of seasonal colour. In front of The Lodge there is an old stone tessellated wall with a dressed granite arch and wrought iron gate leading to the large garden which is in two distinct sections and is mostly laid to lawn with many established plants, trees and shrubs. The garden is very private and secluded with some views extending across the valley. The grounds and gardens extend to approximately half an acre.  

SURROUNDING AREA Continuing along Brook Lane, past The Lodge, leads to the beautiful open moorland of West Down and then on to Double Waters and the picturesque Walkham Valley. Whilst The Lodge offers a high degree of privacy, with no near neighbours, Tavistock town centre is just a short drive or energetic walk away. 

SERVICES Mains electricity, oil fired central heating. We believe that The Lodge may still be connected to a private water supply provided by the Walreddon Estate. Private drainage (to be confirmed). 

OUTGOINGS We understand this property is in band 'E' for Council Tax purposes.
