In a prestigious residential area, a SUBSTANTIAL DETACHED PERIOD FAMILY HOME, sympathetically restored with original features, six bedrooms, three bathrooms, 16ft ORANGERY, array of OUTBUILDINGS, detached GARAGE with games room above and driveway parking, set in south facing gardens of approximately 0.66 ACRE.

A substantial, detached, period family home constructed around 1912 in the Arts and Crafts style, with simple but elegant, rooms, perfectly proportioned and with large, often dual aspect windows designed to take advantage of the natural light and the views over the garden. The house is beautifully preserved and many attractive original features remain, including decoratively tiled fireplaces, cord sash windows and internal joinery work. In recent years, the property has been sympathetically restored including an extensive overhaul of the roof structure and re-slating, new electrics and plumbing. In addition, some gentle modernising of the kitchen, bathroom and ensuite facilities has taken place, all in keeping and done to the highest standard. A major addition is the orangery, located off the kitchen, which has created a lovely, large family room, perfect for eating and entertaining with French doors opening out to the garden and terrace.

Located in one of Tavistock's most prestigious residential areas, the house is approached via a long, sweeping driveway and sits in approximately two thirds of an acre of its own formal gardens which are a particularly attractive feature with a large, neatly cut lawn around which are carefully planted and lovingly tended flowering beds and borders, specimen plants, trees and shrubs, designed to provide an array of vibrant seasonal colour. The garden is south facing with a sunny aspect, generally private, with no overlooking. A substantial boundary bank and wall provides privacy from the roadside.

The driveway opens up in front of the house and provides ample parking and turning for several vehicles, and access to the detached garage. Two areas of hardstanding are discreetly tucked away at the side of the garage and behind the outbuildings, perfect for storing boats and trailers etc.

Beyond the garage and driveway is a raised, partially walled kitchen garden complete with aluminium framed greenhouse.

A useful array of outbuildings includes the detached double garage with double timber doors and vehicle inspection pit. Steps at the back of the garage lead to a large room above, fully lined and insulated and currently in use as a TV and games room.
