SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
A desirable and attractive cottage benefitting from a driveway/off road parking, secluded courtyard gardens and period features, ideally located in the level centre of Tavistock.

The property is an ideal retreat for those who wish to have the convenience of the shops, bars, restaurants, and public transport, all within a short distance from the door.

The house is a Grade II Listed and was quoted to be one of the best examples of a tile hung property in the area, dating to around the early Georgian period. Formerly the canal offices and then converted we understand, in 1850 into a home with many original features remaining.

The property is approached via a wrought iron gate with steps down to the front courtyard, which has attractive shrubs, roses, and wisteria, bounded by a high hedge and stone wall. To the side is a long driveway which could park several vehicles and in turn leads to a pedestrian gate into the rear courtyard garden. This secluded walled garden offers a modern shed which has been insulated with power and lighting plus an old privy which has a light and a power socket. The courtyard is ideal for entertaining with family and friends, nicely hidden away from the street. The house is warmed by mains gas central heating from a combi boiler (serviced annually) along with a multifuel stove in the sitting room (fitted in 2021). We have been advised by the owner that the house has been rewired and plumbed since purchased in 2014. Further refurbishments have also taken place throughout the home creating a stylish cottage which is in keeping with the age. The property comprises of hall, sitting room, study area and kitchen/breakfast room with a pantry and shower room. To the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom.
