SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A traditional semi-detached Victorian house offering notable charm and distant moorland views, conveniently positioned in an elevated road within the historic stannary town of Tavistock.

The house is beautifully presented with elegant areas for entertaining and relaxing combined with original features and a stylish interior. The original reception hall tiles and flagstone slate floors are a particular feature along with cornices and ceiling roses. The front aspect views over this desirable town and surrounding landscape provide the sitting room and master bedroom with a sense of space framed by the rugged beauty of Dartmoor tors on the horizon.

The attractive gardens have been lovingly landscaped with lawns and sunken seating areas for evening drinks and BBQs. A driveway leads along the side elevation to a detached garage making the property ideal for off-road parking for several vehicles. The property is warmed with mains gas central heating, a wood burning stove and further insulation measures, including the main windows being replaced with period styled PVCu double glazed sashes, and benefits from a new roof covering (approximately five years ago).

The accommodation comprises porch, reception hall with understairs and larder cupboard, sitting room, drawing room, kitchen/dining room, utility room, cloakroom and pantry. To the first floor are three double bedrooms and a sizeable family bathroom and to the second floor is a fourth double bedroom with eaves storage.
