A large, detached family home in a generous plot of approx. half an acre located in one of Tavistock's most favoured residential locations and within easy reach of the town centre and amenities therein. Private driveway parking, double garage. No onward chain.
SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
Located in one of Tavistock's most sought after residential areas, and for sale for the first time in over 30 years, this impressive detached family home occupies a generous plot of approximately half an acre, affording a high degree of privacy and seclusion, yet still within easy walking distance of Tavistock town centre and the extensive amenities therein.
The spacious but well proportioned accommodation is set over two floors and arranged around a central hallway with light and airy rooms, the principal rooms enjoying super views over the landscaped gardens. On the ground floor, the three reception rooms include a dual aspect sitting room, study (which could be used as a ground floor bedroom if required) and a 17' dining room which is a perfect place for hosting dinner parties and social gatherings. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate utility room/pantry. The first floor of the house is accessed via an impressive turning staircase and offers four, large, double bedrooms with ensuite facilities to the master bedroom, and a separate family bathroom. Each bedroom has pleasant outlooks over the garden.
The house is exceptionally well maintained and has been greatly improved with an enlarged double garage, good quality double glazing throughout and gas fired central heating served by a modern Viessmann boiler. A comprehensive security system is installed, for added peace of mind.
The house, large as it is, fits perfectly in its generous plot which totals approximately half an acre. The frontage is unassuming, sitting down and out of sight of the road. A gently sloping tarmac drive provides ample parking and hardstanding for several cars and access to the integral double garage. The front garden lies to the side of the drive and is well stocked with neatly trimmed ornamental shrubs and bushes.
Gated pedestrian side access leads to the large, rear garden, a particularly attractive feature, which has been landscaped into level tiers with a large paved terrace including two raised, decked seating areas, overlooking well kept lawns which are interspersed with many well-tended flowers, plants and shrubs designed to provide an array of seasonal colour.
The lower part of the garden, the “secret” garden, has deliberately been left to allow wildflowers, insects and nature to flourish. The garden is bordered by a beautiful band of mature trees (owned and maintained by The Woodland Trust) which provide the garden with welcome shelter from the prevailing winds as well as a high degree of privacy and seclusion.
Beneath the house, accessed via a lockable door at the rear, is a useful area for the storage of garden furniture and equipment and for reaching pipe runs if maintenance or repair is needed. There is also a convenient “Gardener's WC”.
Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park fantastic for walking, cycling, and riding. This vibrant and friendly town hosts a wealth of restaurants and cafes selling locally produced food. Enjoy some shopping with the vast range of local independent shops, the bustling pannier market and award-winning farmers' market. Primary and secondary education both state and private is well catered for in local schools. The Meadows located in the centre of the town provides a children's play area, a bandstand, a sensory garden, tennis courts, bowling club and plenty of open space. Indeed, Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.
