Situation - The property is positioned on the western edge of Horrabridge, towards the end of a quiet cul-de-sac comprised of similar detached houses, not far from Roborough Down and the popular Drake's Trail cycle route. Horrabridge itself is well-served by local amenities and is situated on the A386 between Tavistock and Plymouth, with good transport links between the two, making it a highly convenient location for those looking to commute in either direction. The village sits over the pretty river Walkham, with the two banks, and, thus, the two halves of the village, connected by an historic, Grade I Listed bridge.

Tavistock, some 4 miles to the northwest, is a thriving market town 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 private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th Century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's 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.

Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina which is, naturally, 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 - This detached, modern home is constructed in the traditional manner, with elevations which are finished with natural stone facing to the front and rendered at the gable ends, beneath a pitched, tiled roof. The house offer spacious, extended accommodation with an element of flexibility, comprising four bedrooms, two receptions and three bathrooms, as well as a good size kitchen/dining room.

Externally, there are low-maintenance gardens to the rear comprised of paved and decked areas. To the front of the house is a driveway which, in addition to the integral double garage, provides ample off-road parking. Owing to its location, coupled with its well-rounded nature and the scope of its accommodation, this house would certainly suit an active family and those looking to acquire a comfortable home in a peaceful yet established village position.

Accommodation - The accommodation is clearly illustrated on the floorplan and is accessed on the ground floor through a canopied porch and uPVC entrance door into the hallway, where stairs can be found rising to the first floor. Beneath the stairwell is a cloakroom with a wash basin and low-level WC, whilst on the other side of the hallway is the property's principal reception room which features a fireplace with a timber mantle and surround, currently housing a real flame gas fire. Further along the hallway is the kitchen/dining room, which is fitted with a good range of wall-mounted and base-level units with roll-top work surfaces, incorporating a stainless steel sink with mixer tap and drainer.

The kitchen units also house an integral double oven in addition to a gas hob beneath an extractor hood, with space for an upright fridge/freezer adjacent to the units and space beneath the sink for a dishwasher. From the kitchen is a uPVC door out to the rear garden, with a further set of patio doors in the dining area leading out to the decking.

Also on the ground floor can be found a bedroom suite and an extension providing a second reception room which together, if desired, could be utilised as a partially self-contained living space for a dependent relative. There is also access from the hall into the garage, which features a utility area including a counter with a sink and drainer, plus spaces beneath for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

On the first floor are the family bathroom, which is fitted with a panelled bath, pedestal wash basin and low-level WC, in addition to the house's three further bedrooms. Both the master and second bedrooms face the front aspect with dormer bay windows and, therefore, enjoy from some far-reaching views across Horrabridge to Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom and a fitted wardrobe with sliding, mirrored doors.
