SPACIOUS DETACHED three bedroom SPLIT LEVEL BUNGALOW requiring modernisation, with single GARAGE, GARDENS, driveway PARKING and super views over town. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a well regarded residential area on the western fringes of Tavistock town and within easy reach of the amenities therein. The bungalow occupies a generous plot and enjoys far-ranging views over Tavistock town towards Rix Hill, Whitchurch Down and Dartmoor.



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 three bedroom detached split level bungalow with single attached garage, private driveway and front and rear gardens, located in a quiet position within a well regarded residential area on the outskirts of Tavistock town but still within easy reach of the amenities therein. The bungalow benefits from double glazing and electric storage heating. The shower room has recently been refitted but the bungalow would now benefit from a degree of modernisation and refurbishment.
