Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Located in what many consider one of the most desirable locations in Tavistock, and just 350yards from Whitchurch Down, this detached family home one of a few to possess the rare combination of a fine view with a favoured southerly aspect. Built in 1980 by Messrs Margret & Gloyne, respected local builders since retired, this individually sited and designed property has been well maintained and updated - specification details below- as is evident in the band 'C-73' energy rating.

Extending to approximately 2200sqft/204sqM (which includes the integral double garage currently used as a games room) its layout remains close to its original form bar two improvements to the usage. The changes being the removal of a vestibule on the ground floor and on the first floor two bedrooms have been incorporated creating an impressive 23'8" main bedroom with twin windows taking in the view. This bedroom has three built-in double wardrobes and an en-suite shower room. The bedroom could easily be re-instated to provide a fifth bedroom.

Noteworthy, the sitting room has a triple aspect view with a chimney breast as the focal point of the room, whilst patio doors lead out to a sandstone raised patio and sliding doors open up into the dining room forming a 28' entertaining area if required. The kitchen/breakfast room has been thoughtfully refurbished as a 'quiet zone' with all domestic appliances placed in the adjoining utility room. Upstairs, all the bedrooms are doubles and have built in wardrobes.

An attractive high capped stone walled frontage is broken with timber gates giving private access off the road into a tarmac parking forecourt leading to the garage with further parking down the side of the property. Pedestrian access via both gable elevations leads down into the rear garden, which via the raised patio and terrace leads onto a lawned garden of private aspect, which is well-established and manageable and planted with a range of ornamental shrubs and trees. From the terrace access is gained into the 44' cellar which has 5'6" head height at the front with light and power providing excellent dry storage for garden furniture and equipment.
