DETACHED FAMILY HOME with three bedrooms, front and rear GARDENS and SINGLE GARAGE, in a well established RESIDENTIAL AREA on the western flanks of town. Offered for sale with NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in a well established and well regarded residential area on the western flanks of Tavistock town yet within easy reach of the amenities therein.

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 spacious and comfortable detached family home with accommodation arranged over two floors, benefiting from PVCu double glazing and gas fired central heating. The property occupies a generous level plot with front and rear gardens, ample private driveway parking and a single attached garage. The property is in good order throughout and has clearly been maintained to a high standard but is now a little old-fashioned and would benefit from a degree of refurbishment and redecoration. The property is offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.
