SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in the peaceful, picturesque hamlet of West Liddaton, rural but not isolated, and within convenient driving distance of the popular market town of Tavistock which lies approximately six miles distant, Launceston and Okehampton are further afield via the A30 dual carriageway (approximately 13 miles).
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 period former farmhouse of some historical note, which has been sympathetically preserved and enhanced over the years to provide spacious and comfortable family living accommodation, full of warmth and character, with a welcoming feel about it. The house is complemented by its attractive formal garden which includes a private driveway and ample parking for two vehicles.
A separate parcel of pastureland totalling approximately 3.5 acres is available by separate negotiation.
