Providing LIGHT and SPACIOUS accommodation is this THREE bedroom, DETACHED COTTAGE located in the HEART of this DESIRABLE VILLAGE and benefitting from lovely 'wrap around' GARDENS ideal for OUTSIDE dining and entertaining and DRIVEWAY PARKING for two vehicles.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
This beautifully restored detached period cottage is located in a very desirable position at the heart of Whitchurch village, close to the post office, pub, church and within easy walking distance of Whitchurch Down, Middlemoor and Dartmoor.
Whitchurch is a small attractive village situated approximately 1.5 miles from Tavistock and has its own primary school, post office, shop, and inn. The moors are only a short distance away, together with the cricket ring and golf course. There is a regular bus service to and from Plymouth.
The thriving town of Tavistock adjoins 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.
The current owners have gone to great lengths to carefully and sympathetically renovate this detached cottage whilst retaining as much of its period charm as possible. Recent improvements include a complete overhaul of the roof with new battens and membrane, repointing in lime, a new gas central heating boiler and radiators, a new electrical consumer unit, new double-glazed windows and doors and refitted kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The spacious accommodation is arranged over two floors, with light and airy rooms including an open plan living and dining room, and some pleasant views over the surrounding countryside.
