SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Located in one of Tavistock's most sought after residential areas, this spacious apartment is arranged over the first and second floors of a large period townhouse and benefits from many original features including the turning staircase with sweeping handrail and beautiful large stained glass window above, galleried landing, well-proportioned rooms with high ceilings and period features including the fireplace in the sitting room, plasterwork, joinery work and cord sash windows with superb views over Tavistock town to Whitchurch Down. The property has a separate kitchen and utility room with space for drying, and a new Worcester boiler has been installed in the last year. The bedrooms benefit from spacious built-in wardrobes, and the top-floor bedroom is self-contained with an ensuite bathroom.

Outside, there is a shared driveway and turning space leading to a private parking area. Beyond the parking area is a cobbled courtyard, private and sheltered, suitable for a café table and chairs.
At the front of the house, a gently sloping path leads down to the garden (shared with Flat 2) which is a particularly attractive feature, level and laid to lawn with well-tended beds and borders filled with flowering plants, trees and shrubs designed to provide an array of seasonal colour.
Tavistock town and the extensive amenities therein is an easy walk from the property, via the pedestrian cut throughs at either Rocky Hill or Madge Lane.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining 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.
