In need of REFURBISHMENT, a DETACHED FAMILY HOME enjoying SUPERB VIEWS, with three bedrooms, two receptions, LARGE GARDEN, garage and DRIVEWAY PARKING. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a well regarded residential area, on the western side of Tavistock town and within easy reach of the amenities therein.

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 detached three bedroom family sized home with driveway and garage, occupying a generous plot with super views towards Rix Hill. The accommodation is well proportioned, arranged over two floors and benefits from double glazing and central heating. However, the property is old fashioned and would now benefit from a degree of modernisation and refurbishment.
