SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION A beautifully-appointed top floor apartment within this substantial historic building, once the barracks forming part of the associated Dartmoor Prison buildings. Dating back to the 1800s, the building has been impressively refurbished to form these spacious apartments in the heart of this beautiful village situated in the heart of Dartmoor National Park.

The property is extremely well-appointed throughout and includes good-sized rooms to incorporate two/three bedrooms, sitting room, dining room/bedroom three, fitted kitchen, bathroom with large shower and bath. All rooms are linked by an impressive central hallway.

Gas-fired central heating is installed and there are additional utility/rear porch storage and access areas. Outside there is off road parking for two-three vehicles in addition to a seating, drying and barbeque area.

Princetown includes a number of village amenities with two public houses, a post office, number of shops, cafes and the Dartmoor visitor centre. Open moorland surrounds the village and is ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits. Tavistock and Yelverton are both around 15 minutes by car with Plymouth around 30 minutes away.
