Situation - Manor Oaks was constructed in 2010 by Taylor Wimpey. This striking modern building sits on the former site of Tavistock Manor, on the northwestern edge of the town yet within a short walk of the centre and all of its facilities and amenities.
 
Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, where regular farmers' markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep.
 
To the west of the town further opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage can be enjoyed on the Devon/Cornwall boundary along the Tamar River Valley. Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina which is particularly appealing to sailing enthusiasts. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.

Description - Occupying a second floor plot within an imposing and impressive modern development, and in an attractive verdant setting amongst communal parklands, this well-presented 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom apartment benefits from allocated parking, underfloor heating, lift access and a secure entry phone system. This property should appeal to first-time buyers, landlord investors and those seeking a low-maintenance or "lock-up-and-leave"-type property in a convenient setting within reach of Tavistock town.

Accommodation - Internally, the apartment is accessed by a lift from the communal entrance on the ground floor. The apartment's hallway features the entry phone receiver and a storage/meter cupboard. At the end of the hallway is an open-plan living/dining room, which, in turn, opens into the contemporary fitted kitchen. The kitchen includes an integral 4-ring gas hob and oven with an extractor hood over, and comes equipped with a plumbed space for appliance. Also located off the hallway are the bathroom and two bedrooms, the larger of which features an en-suite shower room.

Outside - Outside, the apartment has access to the communal parkland gardens which are set out in front of Manor Oaks to create an extremely attractive and peaceful backdrop for residents. There is also an allocated parking space located to the rear of the property.

Services - Mains electricity, gas, water and drainage are all connected. Under-floor heating throughout.

Tenure - Leasehold. The apartment is being sold with the remainder of a 125-year lease which commenced in January 2010. The annual ground rent is £250 per annum (currently paid up until January 2019) and the estimated service charge for the period of January to December 2018 is £983.75 (paid until July 2018). Please note that our client has negotiated a Deed of Variation for their lease, meaning that the ground rent for this apartment no longer doubles every ten years.
