BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED VICTORIAN TOWNHOUSE with SELF-CONTAINED APARTMENT and SEPARATE ANNEXE, in one of Tavistock's Most PRESTIGIOUS RESIDENTIAL AREAS.

SITUATION A beautifully appointed Victorian townhouse, located in one of Tavistock's most prestigious residential locations, on the western side of the town and within convenient reach of the amenities therein. The elevated position affords superb panoramic views extending over Tavistock town towards Whitchurch Down and 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.



DESCRIPTION A sympathetically restored and now carefully preserved Victorian townhouse, with private and secluded garden, parking and garaging, located in one of Tavistock's most well regarded residential areas.



The house has been restored to a very high standard and, whilst all modern comforts are provided, great care has been taken to preserve and embellish the attractive original period features which include some superb marble fireplaces, decorative plasterwork and period joinery.

The versatile accommodation is arranged over four floors and includes a large family home with an independent apartment located on the lower ground floor, plus a separate annexe/staff quarters at the rear.



The house occupies a generous plot with beautifully landscaped gardens, ample private parking and garaging. The house and gardens enjoy a sunny southerly aspect and there are super views extending over the town towards Whitchurch Down and Dartmoor.
