SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a well established and well regarded residential area, located on the western side of Tavistock town and within easy walking distance of the amenities therein. The property occupies a generous plot and enjoys superb panoramic views extending over the town towards Dartmoor.

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.

A detached home, recently modernised and updated to a particularly high standard, including fully fitted kitchen with high gloss frontages, refitted cloakroom, new family bathroom and luxurious ensuite. On the ground floor, engineered oak flooring has been installed throughout whilst new carpets have been fitted to the upstairs rooms. The property is warmed by gas fired central heating and PVCu double glazing is installed.
