SITUATION Conveniently located in a rural but not isolated position just a short drive from the popular market town of Tavistock and enjoying superb views extending across the surrounding countryside to the tors of Dartmoor.

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 large detached family sized home with living accommodation arranged over two floors with the principal rooms arranged to take full advantage of the sunny southerly aspect and the far-ranging countryside views.

The spacious accommodation is well presented and well maintained throughout and the configuration of rooms offers a greater versatility and may be suitable for those needing to create annexed accommodation, perhaps for a teenager or dependant relative. 

Although easily accessible from Tavistock, the property stands in its own private, secure and secluded formal gardens which are a particularly attractive feature, having been extensively landscaped and well tended thereafter. There is a useful range of outbuildings, including a detached double garage, separate detached workshop, two potting sheds, greenhouse and undercroft. Ample private driveway parking is provided, whilst a separate field gate provides additional parking in the holding paddock, if required.
