SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Occupying a secluded plot, in a quiet position on the outskirts of the popular Cornish village of Gunnislake and within easy and convenient reach of the amenities therein.

Gunnislake is situated alongside the River Tamar with a good range of shops and primary schools, and public houses. There is an excellent playing field nearby and walks abound. Gunnislake is approximately 20 miles by road from Plymouth and 5 miles from both Callington and Tavistock. There is a regular train service to Plymouth city centre and good bus service to both Tavistock and Callington.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted 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.

Plymouth is a city with one of the largest natural harbours in the world. To the north is the Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles which provides excellent recreational facilities. Plymouth itself has a population of well over 250,000 and has a full range of shopping, educational and sporting facilities. There is a mainline train service to London Paddington and to Penzance in Cornwall. Brittany Ferries operates seasonal services from Plymouth to France and northern Spain. 

An exceptional family home, with comfortable and surprisingly spacious accommodation arranged over two floors. The original home has been sympathetically restored to a high standard and affords much period charm and character whilst a recent extension houses an ultra modern kitchen, dining room and games room. Superb fixtures and fittings have been specified throughout and the family bathroom, wet room and en-suite are of a particularly high quality. This is clearly a home to be enjoyed and to this end there is a family sized outdoor swimming pool located in the garden alongside a summer house and outdoor eating and entertaining area. Ample private driveway parking. Additional hard standing.
