** 3D VIRTUAL AVAILABLE** A Spectacular COUNTRY RESIDENCE set in approximately 3.25 ACRES in a pretty VILLAGE on the western flanks of DARTMOOR, near to Tavistock. FIVE Bedrooms, THREE Bathrooms, THREE Reception Rooms. ANNEXE POTENTIAL. Double GARAGE and WORKSHOP.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION Tucked away in a quiet corner of the pretty moorland village of Peter Tavy, this substantial detached riverside country house was originally built in 1928. Much loved by the current owners the house has been extensively refurbished and refitted over the years (in fact many rooms have recently been redecorated) and the house and gardens are meticulously maintained to the highest standard.

Peter Tavy is a peaceful rural hamlet nestling on the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park and lies just four miles from the bustling market town of Tavistock and the wide variety of amenities therin. The house occupies a secluded but not isolated position on the edge of the village, within its own park-like grounds and gardens totalling approximately 3.25 acres, with rolling lawns leading down to a large pond naturally fed by the river Collybrooke, which borders the southern boundary. The principle rooms in the house overlook this beautiful garden and enjoy views extending over the surrounding countryside.

The house affords very spacious and comfortable family sized accommodation, arranged over two floors, with most rooms enjoying views over the gardens and surrounding countryside. There is an impressive entrance hall with vaulted ceiling, formal reception rooms include a magnificent 30' triple aspect drawing room and bespoke kitchen with top of the range appliances from Miele and Gaggenau.

On the first floor, the stunning master bedroom suite is complemented by four other double bedrooms and two well appointed bathrooms, sufficient to accommodate the largest family in some comfort.

Outside, gated access leads to a sweeping driveway leading to a large parking and turning area and a double garage with electrically operated, remote controlled up and over door. Above the garage, accessed via a private staircase is the gymnasium which could just as easily be utilised as a home office or studio, or possibly converted to annexe accommodation if required, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. A second garage is located at the top of the drive and provides additional parking or dry storage as required.

Beyond the house, there is a paved courtyard with covered log store and screened oil tank, a sunny sitting area and a large, southerly facing decked terrace with wooden balustrade, ideal for outdoor eating and entertaining whilst taking in the super views. From here, steps lead down to a gravelled walkway and another seating area complete with stone wall and flowering borders. A substantial timber built workshop/store has two double entrance doors, power and light and houses the essential ride-on mower. Walking through the garden, down to the pond, there are fantastic views of the surrounding countryside, up to the tors of Dartmoor and the village church spire.
