SPACIOUS and well presented FOUR BEDROOM three storey Victorian property providing VERSATILE accommodation including ANNEXE / FLAT / SHOP in the historic heart of the village. NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A spacious and well presented three storey Victorian house in the historic heart of the village, offering versatile living space. No onward chain.

The village of Bere Alston offers a wide range of shopping facilities as well as a post office, doctors' surgery, chemist and highly rated primary school. The Tamar Valley railway line links Bere Alston to Plymouth in 20 minutes, with connections from there to London. The unspoilt surroundings of the Tamar Valley with its rolling hills, meandering rivers and ancient woodlands are ideally suited to those who enjoy walking, riding and water sports. The market town of Tavistock is a five mile drive away and offers a variety of additional facilities including a number of supermarkets, The Wharf Cultural Centre, notable boutiques, delicatessens and the Pannier Market.

This traditional well presented Victorian terrace house with notable character was built, we understand, in the mid 1800s and has been extensively renovated by the current owners. The property is set over three storeys and may suit a large family who require annexe accommodation with separate entrance on the ground floor. There is also scope for business use (subject to planning) with a good frontage in the centre of the village. The private garden to the rear is a particular feature with lawn, seating area and sizeable outbuilding ideal for storage. The back garden backs onto a free car park where there is ample parking for numerous cars.

The house was extended on the rear elevation in 1989 with a ground floor kitchen, wet room and first floor kitchen/breakfast room. There are some lovely character features with open fireplace and exposed stone walls warmed by a modern mains gas boiler and PVCu double glazing. The versatile and sizeable accommodation comprises on the ground floor a reception room, inner hall, kitchen, wet room and fourth bedroom. On the first floor is a sitting room, living/dining room, study and kitchen/breakfast room, whilst on the second floor are three further bedrooms and a bathroom. (We understand the chimney has been swept and is ready for use.)
