A Two Bedroomed DETACHED BUNGALOW with HUGE POTENTIAL in a LARGE PLOTof approx. 1.5 ACRES with a PADDOCK, located on the Outskirts of a Popular Moorland Village On the Western Flanks of the Dartmoor National Park

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A detached bungalow occupying a particularly large plot including a paddock totalling approximately 1.5 acres conveniently located on the edge of the popular moorland village of Mary Tavy, on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park.



Mary Tavy is a small village situated approximately 4 miles north of Tavistock on the edge of 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 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.

This two bedroomed detached bungalow requires refurbishment and modernisation and could also be altered and extended to create a much bigger property, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consent. The bungalow occupies a particularly generous plot with a large, level formal garden and a paddock totalling approximately 1.5 acres. The bungalow is located on the edge of the popular Dartmoor village of Mary Tavy and enjoys pleasant views over the surrounding countryside towards Dartmoor in the distance.
