Property Description

Key features


Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A substantial and desirable detached residence with extensive and versatile accommodation on a large plot. There is also a detached converted Coach House in the grounds providing additional letting income. Beautifully presented the property retains many late Victorian features, complimented by modern facilities including a recently fitted kitchen/breakfast room with high gloss units, quartz work surfaces and flooring. There is ample parking at the rear and a triple garage/workshop as well as gardens and patios. The main property is currently run as a successful B & B boasting four guest rooms along with separate owners accommodation; together with the Coach House, a lucrative income is generated. Drakewalls is a small village which can be found between the pretty market town of Tavistock and Callington in an area of outstanding natural beauty within the Tamar Valley. The property is ideally situated to attract passing trade for maximum exposure to holiday makers entering or leaving Cornwall close to the Devon border. Local facilities include a primary school, train station, local shop and hairdressers. While the accommodation is currently arranged as a guest house it should equally appeal to those looking for a large family home and separate granny annex / holiday let.
