SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION An enviably situated 1930s house offering elevated distant views over the historic town of Tavistock and the countryside beyond, perfectly placed for amenities, within moments of the high street and positioned on one of the quieter roads in the town away from the main thoroughfare. The property is also only a short walk from attractive country walks along Old Exeter Road and yards from the Drakes Trail which is a National Cycle Route 27 which runs along the old railway and across the town's viaduct.

This sunlit property has undergone part refurbishment and improvements since purchase and now benefits from an open plan kitchen, dining and living room plus a useful utility. A new half vaulted roof was added with Velux windows on the rear elevation of the house helping the character and natural light of the kitchen area. The main bedroom and the third bedroom have also been refurbished along with new digital thermostatic radiators in the main rooms. There is also scope to convert the loft space subject to relevant planning permission.

There are low maintenance gardens to both front and rear. The raised rear courtyard backs into a dense shrub embankment providing a sheltered and private seating area and raised flowerbeds. The paved front garden extends onto a decked terrace and enjoys a sunny aspect and further views.

The accommodation comprises hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining/living room and utility. There is potential for a cloakroom under the stairs in the cupboard with a small PVCu window. To the first floor are three bedrooms (two doubles and single) and a bathroom.
