Deceptively SPACIOUS DOUBLE FRONTED TOWNHOUSE on three floors with three/four bedrooms, LANDSCAPED REAR GARDEN and conveniently located within EASY WALKING DISTANCE of the town centre.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Conveniently located within easy walking distance of Tavistock town centre and 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.


From the roadside, it's hard to envisage the size and internal space available in this large double fronted mid-terraced townhouse which affords well proportioned family sized accommodation arranged over three floors, with an impressive 27ft sitting room on the first floor, and super views extending over Tavistock town towards Whitchurch Down and Dartmoor. In addition, there is a large landscaped garden at the rear, a tranquil haven just a stone's throw from the busy town centre.
