SITUATION Located close to the heart of Whitchurch village, within easy reach of Whitchurch Down, the Post Office and general store and Tavistock town centre. The property is also in the catchment area for the well regarded Whitchurch Community Primary School.

Whitchurch is a small attractive village situated approximately 1.5 miles from Tavistock and has its own inn. The moors are only a short distance away, together with the cricket ring and golf course.  

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 A substantial period family home, Grade II Listed and of some historical note, now affording spacious and comfortable four bedroom accommodation arranged over two floors with well proportioned reception rooms, breakfast room and modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. Many original period features remain including ornate plasterwork and period joinery such as shuttered cord sash windows.

The property stands in an elevated position above Whitchurch Road, within its own walled garden which enjoys a sunny, southerly aspect. There is ample private parking and turning for several vehicles, including a hardstanding adjacent to a traditionally stone built former coach house, now housing a single garage and store.
