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.
The house is ideal for those who like to be close to the town but away from the busy streets. Presented in good order, the house has been extended in the past creating further living spaces, a good size kitchen/breakfast room and conservatory, plus an attic room which has proved very versatile and useful over the years. We understand the property was built around 1900 and therefore benefits from character features and fireplaces typical of the period. The sitting room at the front of the house has a bay window and a wood burning stove and has been the perfect room to retire to in the winter months. There is also a pleasant dining room which is currently used as a living room, especially through the summer period, which also has an attractive wood burner and original cupboards. Within this room is an understairs cupboard with a natural light window and power points. This room opens to the kitchen breakfast room with fitted units and cupboards, breakfast bar and integrated appliances. The kitchen also has a multitude of double plugs for ease. The integrated appliances include a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, Neff dual oven and grill and a gas hob with extractor hood. The corner cupboards are deep for plenty of storage and there is space for a dresser. Off the kitchen area is a utility room, which houses the modern gas boiler (fitted in 2019) and cloakroom. There is also a useful rear porch (built in 2014) with ample space for hanging coats and storing boots/shoes.

The first floor offers a light landing with built in storage cupboards and a window to the side. Off the landing is a modern style family bathroom consisting of a bathtub and separate shower cubicle. The principal bedroom is to the rear with fitted wardrobes, vanity basin and a window looking out to the rear views. The home offers three further bedrooms and an attic room. The attic room is reached via paddle stairs from the study/bedroom four and unusually benefits from centrally heated radiators and Velux windows to the side and rear vista. This room has been invaluable over the years for a further living space, home office and games area.

The property is approached from a stone chipping driveway with space for two vehicles and flanked by an area of front garden with a wall boundary. To the side is a pedestrian gate to the rear garden. The rear garden has a walled boundary with additional fencing making the space private and secure. The gardens back onto the field of Mount Kelly School and are flanked by trees, creating a secluded peaceful haven for the current owner. There are paved paths, seating areas and two sheds, one of which has power points. The garden also has a variety of planted flowerbeds and mature shrubs creating colour through the year.
