Milton Abbot is a small but attractive village located on the Devon/Cornwall border and equidistant from the popular market towns of Tavistock and Launceston. The village has a well regarded county primary school.
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.
This spacious and comfortable family sized home affords versatile accommodation arranged over two floors and can provide three bedrooms plus a study or four bedrooms, as required. The property has been maintained to a high standard, is warmed by oil fired central heating and PVCu double glazing has been installed. The principal rooms enjoy super views extending across the village towards open countryside to Bodmin Moor and Cornwall in the distance.
To the rear of the house, there is a pleasant formal garden and a productive kitchen garden. There is private driveway parking for one vehicle. This property is offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.
