Nearing completion, NEWLY BUILT and beautifully appointed DETACHED FAMILY HOME, architecturally designed and fitted to the HIGHEST STANDARD, with four/five bedrooms, CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN, generous WALLED GARDEN, sun terrace, GARAGE and private PARKING, enjoying super VIEWS over the town.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Set in its own private walled garden, accessed via a private driveway, this beautifully appointed newly built detached family home is situated on the western side of Tavistock town centre, within easy and convenient walking distance of the amenities therein and benefiting from some super views across the town.

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.

Nearing completion, this contemporary style family home is being constructed by renowned local builders, Charles Gray Limited.

Taking advantage of its elevated position, the house is arranged over three levels, with large apex windows, glazed panels, balconies and decks designed to take full advantage of the sunny southerly aspect and the super views which extend across Tavistock town.

Architecturally designed and built to the highest level, careful thought has been given to the layout which offers a high degree of flexibility and includes impressive open spaces including the large sitting room and contemporary kitchen, the sleeping accommodation including ground floor bedroom suite complete with dressing area and wet room (which could be used as the master bedroom suite or as a guest facility), three further bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite whilst the others share a luxuriously fitted family bathroom.

Internally, the specification includes oak internal doors with brushed chrome furniture, engineered oak flooring, staircases with glass balustrades, LED spotlighting throughout, a Masterclass kitchen designed by Charles Gray Kitchens featuring a range of built-in Siemens appliances, Franke sink, corian worktops, fully tiled bathrooms and ensuites, double glazing, gas central heating with a mix of underfloor and traditional radiators, garage with remote controlled door and security alarm.

Externally, the house occupies a generous walled garden, hard landscaped to provide ample private parking and turning for several vehicles, a sun terrace, decked balcony and lawned terrace. Located at the end of a private driveway, the position is secluded and there are super views extending across Tavistock town.
