SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A spacious three storey property in need of update and improvement, set in the heart of this popular village.

Horrabridge is an attractive village situated 9 miles from Plymouth and 5 miles from Tavistock. It provides shopping facilities and there is a primary school. There are regular bus services to both Plymouth and Tavistock.

Yelverton has a useful selection of shops, including the Coop supermarket, delicatessen, hairdressers, garage and hotel. The ancient stannary town of Tavistock is around 6 miles to the north, with the historic naval port of Plymouth about 10 miles to the south. Yelverton has regular bus services to both Tavistock and Plymouth, where the national rail network provides connections to London and countless other destinations. Plymouth also has cross-channel ferry services to both France and Spain. Sporting and leisure facilities throughout the region are excellent; the Cornish beaches are within striking distance, and with Dartmoor National Park extending to over 300 square miles of stunning open countryside, there is plenty for the outdoor enthusiast to find. Sailing and other water sports are available within the Tamar and Tavy estuaries, and there are golf courses at Yelverton and Tavistock with numerous others throughout the region. There are also opportunities to fish by arrangement on the rivers Tamar, Tavy and Walkham.

Originally built as a public house, this property was run as the village Post Office since the early 1900s and currently has A1 business use and is now a family home. The spacious accommodation is set over three floors and evidence of its history can be seen in the various cellars on the lower ground floor.

The accommodation currently comprises an entrance hall, shop, original sorting office, dining room, office/reception room, kitchen and conservatory to the ground floor. To the lower ground floor are five linked cellars with power and light points.
