Enviably located in an ELEVATED position enjoying PANORAMIC VIEWS, a recently renovated DETACHED RESIDENCE with three bedrooms, LANDSCAPED GARDEN with seating terraces, DRIVEWAY PARKING and single GARAGE, within walking distance of town.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A enviably located detached residence with elevated panoramic views over the historic town of Tavistock and the surrounding rural landscape and moorland.

This detached and very recently renovated bungalow offers scope for a loft conversion which the current owners started to investigate which in turn would further enhance the views. The home is a sloped walk into the centre of town which makes the location particularly convenient for those who want to leave the car on the drive. We understand the property was built in the 1960s in what was once a nursery garden of a large house with some of the original stone terracing and level planted areas still remaining.

To the front is a sizeable gated driveway and single garage which provides ample off-road parking for several vehicles. The gardens are a particular feature and have been landscaped with seating terraces which benefit from the southern aspects and all day sun. Internally the property has been refurbished with contemporary colours and features for modern living with views from most of the windows creating a wonderful sense of space. The home has a new mains gas heating system with the boiler positioned in the loft.

The accommodation comprises a large reception hallway, dual aspect sitting/dining room with southerly and westerly aspects plus a fireplace with raised wall points for a flat screen TV. The stylish kitchen incorporates grey units and integrated appliances, including a dishwasher and five ring gas hob. An opening leads to the walk-in pantry with space for an American fridge/freezer and cupboards. The utility/boot room runs along the rear elevation with Velux windows and doors (one with cat flap) to both garden and driveway making this ideal for bringing in pets and muddy boots. There are three double bedrooms and a luxury shower/bathroom with infinity mirror and a separate cloakroom.

The property is approached up the hill and through the gates onto the level driveway with detached garage. A newly created paved terrace with wrought iron railings runs along the south elevation and opens into the main garden. A raised terrace backs onto a stone wall which leads to a barbecue area, circular fish pond and a further late evening patio for the last of the sun. The garden offers level terraces with stone chippings and established shrubs, including a pear tree. There are sections of lawn which are framed by flower beds making the garden an attractive oasis throughout the year. Even though the town is so close and there are properties around, the grounds feel private and tranquil and offer some of the best views over Tavistock and all the way up to the moors beyond. Within the rear garden is a useful good size workshop/store with mains power and lighting ideal for cycles and garden furniture.
