BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED THROUGHOUT, generous accommodation with SIX DOUBLE BEDROOMS, studio, study, STUNNING HIGH-QUALITY KITCHEN with gas AGA, approx 1/3 acre plot, NO ONWARD CHAIN.

SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
A Handsome, Victorian, semi-detached house situated in a wonderful tucked away location, with the highly prized feature of having direct access to Whitchurch Down yet situated within easy walking distance of Tavistock town and its amenities.

Believed to date from the late 1800's, the property has been beautifully maintained throughout whilst retaining many attractive period detailing of the era. The roof of the property has also been replaced in recent years in addition to a general overhaul of the living accommodation creating a very comfortable family home. The property also benefits from PVCu double glazing and gas central heating.
The property is situated on a plot of approximately 1/3 acre incorporating a sweeping gated driveway, detached garage, extensive formal lawn, and private courtyard areas. Splendid far-reaching views are enjoyed from the front elevation towards Crowndale Valley whilst the rear enjoys views across Whitchurch Down from rooms on the second floor.

The property enjoys spacious and well-proportioned living accommodation arranged over three floors, accessed via an entrance vestibule and grand entrance hall on the ground floor. There are three generous reception areas including a formal lounge with attractive bay window and a high spec kitchen/diner with French doors opening to a sun terrace, and a further door opening to a “back kitchen” and in turn a utility room and rear porch. A study with bay window and cloakroom completes the ground floor level.

All six bedrooms are double in size and located over two further floors. An ornate staircase ascends to the first floor where there is a principal bathroom at a mezzanine level and a landing then leading to four bedrooms, bedrooms one and two of which are located at the front elevation enjoying the wonderful far-reaching views. Bedroom three benefits from a Jack and Jill en suite bathroom (to the back kitchen via a staircase) and bedroom four has a built-in dressing room.

The staircase ascends to the second floor where there are two further bedrooms and a spacious studio room with exposed rafters in the gabled section of the property.

OUTSIDE
The property is accessed towards the end of a quiet no through road where a gated sweeping driveway leads to a detached single garage and parking forecourt outside the property. The front gardens incorporate a large formal lawn flanked with planted beds and a pleasant, paved sun terrace which can also be accessed from the kitchen/diner. There is a chicken coop area, whilst established hedges and trees offer a leafy and tranquil setting. The rear of the plot provides useful courtyard areas with two small outbuildings and a pedestrian provides access to the open moorland which is a truly spectacular feature of this home.
