Altered and improved SEMI-DETACHED FAMILY HOME with four bedrooms, CONSERVATORY, south facing GARDEN, carport, GARAGE and PARKING in one of Tavistock's sought after RESIDENTIAL AREAS. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Located in one of Tavistock's most sought after residential areas, and within easy reach of both Tavistock town centre, 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.

This four bedroom semi-detached family home has been altered, extended and improved to provide comfortable accommodation arranged over two floors. A front porch has been added, the sitting room and dining room have been reconfigured and a conservatory installed in the south facing garden. There is ample private parking for several vehicles, a carport providing dry hardstanding and a single detached garage. The property is offered for sale with the benefit of no onward chain.
