SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Tucked away in a quiet corner in the old part of Mary Tavy yet within easy reach of local amenities including the well patronised Mary Tavy Inn Public House, Post Office and General Store and the well regarded Country Primary School.

Mary Tavy is a small village situated approximately four miles north of Tavistock and lies within the Dartmoor National Park. It has its own primary school, post office, church and an inn, and has a private bus service to and from Tavistock. Plymouth city centre is about 19 miles distant.

Tavistock is a thriving market town voted in 2004 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.

A very pretty detached stone barn, originally converted some years ago and much improved by the present owners now providing very well appointed accommodation arranged over two floors. The barn stands in beautifully tended formal gardens which are a particular attractive feature and extend in total to approximately 0.35 acres. Both the barn and garden are sunny and south facing and there are some excellent views extending over the village towards Blackdown and the tors of Dartmoor.

OUTSIDE The property is approached from the road via a private driveway (shared with one neighbouring property) which leads in turn to a private gravelled parking area beside the barn and continues on to a further hardstanding at the back of the barn, adjacent to the boot room. From the parking area, steps lead down to a very private and sheltered courtyard garden, complete with timber arbour above a paved seating area with well stocked beds and borders and raised flower beds. The courtyard enjoys a sunny southerly aspect and is perfect for outdoor eating and entertaining. Further steps lead up to the formal garden which is gently sloping and mostly laid to lawn with well stocked and well tended flowering beds and borders, well established trees and shrubs which are designed to provide an impressive array of seasonal colour. In addition to the ornamental beds, there is a productive kitchen garden with five raised beds, trained fruit trees and soft fruits. An aluminium greenhouse is provided alongside a large timber workshop/storage shed. To the rear of this building is a log store and discrete composting area. A well placed seating area has been carved out of the garden and is perfectly positioned to overlook the garden and barn with Dartmoor in the distance acting as a backdrop. Continue up the garden, a gap in the beech hedge leads to another lawn with a bench taking in views of Blackdown and Dartmoor. A gate at the very top of the garden provides pedestrian access to the road. The grounds and gardens are a particularly attractive feature of the property, are fully enclosed by mature hedging and post and rail fencing. Including the footprint of the barn, the property stands in approximately 0.35 acres.
