DETACHED BUNGALOW in a QUIET POSITION with SUPER VIEWS over the town, with three bedrooms, two reception rooms, and GARDEN. Partly refurbished but requires finishing.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a peaceful setting on the western fringes of Tavistock town, yet within convenient reach of the town centre and the amenities therein. From the bungalow there are super views extending over the surrounding rooftops towards Whitchurch Down and Rix Hill in the distance.



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 spacious detached bungalow built, we believe, in 1936, with light and airy living accommodation, the principal rooms taking full advantage of the super views. The property occupies a generous plot with a large lawned garden.



A programme of refurbishment works has been started by our clients which will require finishing by the new owners. These works include hanging internal doors, second fix joinery including skirtings and architraves, fitting radiators and decorating.
