A frontline waterside home in need of complete refurbishment standing in 1.6 acres. EPC Band E.
Perfectly positioned, with commanding south facing panoramic views over The Tavy Estuary, nestling above the banks of the River Tavy on the ever popular Bere Peninsula, rightly recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and in the heart of The Tamar Valley, renowned for it's warm climate, clean bathing waters and air, rich in beauty and history.
Within a short stroll of the riverside village of Bere Ferrers, a pretty village with its own train service to and from Plymouth. It has a charming, old fashioned pub and historic riverside church. There is a Saturday Market in the village hall where one can buy local produce. Further afield is the market town of Tavistock and only a short drive away Dartmoor National Park and the historic Naval city of Plymouth, with all the amenities of a large modern city,
The area is an unspoilt and forgotten corner of Devon, with its green rolling hills, and deep meandering rivers fringed by ancient woodland. The area represents one of the finest lifestyle investments you can make, perfect for those who enjoy walking, riding and water sports, and is ideal for sailing enthusiasts, with a nearby sailing club and moorings. Close by is the well-regarded sailing and rowing club. There is also a great boatyard offering moorings for deep draught yachts and providing access to some of the finest uncrowded sailing in the country.Description

The property will appeal to owner-occupiers and developers alike on the lookout for an incredible opportunity to create a desirable family home.
In front of the property is a largely timber constructed garage, and a traditional stone built barn with more recent block extensions; both offer further potential.Gardens and grounds
The house sits on a plateau, well above the high-water mark, accessed from a quiet country lane. The majority of the grounds, which extend to 1.6 acres, is lower than the house and is traditional salt marsh. Surrounding the property are the formal gardens, which today are somewhat over-grown. Behind the house is a further level area with potential road access.Method of Sale
