SITUATION Occupying a generous plot in a rural yet not isolated position within the popular Cornish village of Chilsworthy, nestling high on the banks of the River Tamar and enjoying superb views across the valley towards Devon and Dartmoor in the distance.

Chilsworthy is a picturesque village with a public house, conveniently situated approximately 1.5 miles from the village of Gunnislake. 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 from Tavistock with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.

DESCRIPTION A spacious and well proportioned detached bungalow, much improved in recent years, affording versatile accommodation with the principal rooms designed to take full advantage of the stunning views which extend across the Tamar Valley towards Devon and the tors of Dartmoor in the distance.

In our opinion, the accommodation could easily be reconfigured to provide an independent annexe, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.
