SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a rural but not isolated position and still within easy reach of Tavistock town centre and the extensive array of amenities therein. The property occupies an elevated site, overlooking its own gardens and land, and affords superb views over the surrounding countryside towards Dartmoor in the distance.

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.
 

Our clients undertook the conversion of Round House Barn approximately twenty years ago and, with some clever design and a great deal of forethought, have used an eclectic mix of old and new to create a home of some distinction. Much of the character of the original structure remains and, indeed, the former round house still retains some of the original machinery. The space within the Barn has been carefully reconfigured to provide comfortable accommodation arranged over two floors with many rooms taking advantage of the superb views. Good quality reclaimed materials have been used throughout and internal joinery work, including roof beams and vaulted ceilings, is proudly on show. Whilst remaining true to its roots, the Barn still provides all modern comforts and is fully double glazed and warmed by oil fired central heating. 

Opposite the Barn there is a detached pool complex with a fully heated indoor 10 metre swimming pool, private changing rooms and cloakroom. There are two garages, one large double and a separate single, as well as a tractor shed. Ample vehicle parking is provided. The Barn stands in its own grounds of approximately three acres including a formal garden with a separate paddock beyond.  

A particularly attractive feature are the super views which extend from both the house and garden, across glorious Devon countryside towards Dartmoor in the distance.
