An extended and adaptable detached home in a sought-after location close to Whitchurch Down. Versatile Detached Property, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Receptions, Front and Rear Gardens, Ample Off-road Parking, Detached Garage, Quiet Cul-de-sac, Short walk to Whitchurch Down, Modernisation Desirable. EPC Band: F
This well-rounded and adaptable 4-bedroom property is situated in Whitchurch, on Tavistock's southeastern edge. Sitting within a popular, quiet cul-de-sac, a key attraction is the property's proximity to Whitchurch Down, which acts as a gateway to the Dartmoor National Park, whilst still being just a mile from the town centre. A pedestrian walkway at the top of the close provides immediate access to the Down, from where one can explore the picturesque, rugged scenery of the Moors with ease.
Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century, and famed for being the birthplace of Sir Francis Drake. Today, the town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the sought-after private and independent school, Mount Kelly, whilst the largely 19th-century town centre is focussed around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders with the Dartmoor National Park along its eastern edge, making it an extremely popular destination for lovers of the outdoors with walking, riding, cycling and exploring all on the doorstep. To the west of the town can be found the Tamar Valley, along the Devon/Cornwall border, offering further opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage. Plymouth, some 15 miles to the south, offers extensive amenities with the added attraction of its coastal access and the Mayflower Marina. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport connections to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5 motorway.DESCRIPTION
With deceptively sizeable accommodation which has been extended in previous years, in our opinion this versatile property - originally a chalet-style bungalow - offers great potential and would suit a variety of prospective purchasers. Totalling over 1,600sq.ft, the property is comprised of a principal reception room, kitchen, large utility/laundry room, garden room, two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. Having been a cherished home for the current owner for the past two decades, there is now scope for the next owner to carry out a degree of modernisation in order to mould the property to their tastes.
Set back from the road, the property enjoys good privacy through some established, mature gardens to the front and back. There is a driveway providing off-road parking for up to 3 vehicles, in addition to a detached garage.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is clearly identified on the floorplan overleaf, being accessed on the ground floor through a solid timber entrance door into a reception hallway, from where there are doors leading to all of the ground floor rooms. Also within the hallway, which has parquet flooring, is a large cloaks cupboard and the staircase to the first floor. To the front of the property is the principal reception room - a dual-aspect sitting/dining room, naturally well-lit through windows on the south and east-facing elevations, with the former affording a pleasant outlook across Whitchurch to Rix Hill.
In addition to the centrally heated radiators, there is an inset gas fire in the sitting room. A return door from the dining area leads to the L-shaped kitchen which is currently fitted with a good range of wall and base-level units, with work surfaces over incorporating a 11/2-bowl composite sink, a 4-ring gas hob with extractor hood over and integral double oven. Additionally, there is space beneath the counter for a dishwasher. A secondary entrance door leads from the kitchen out to the front of the property, whilst a return door leads back into the hallway. Across the hallway from the kitchen is a large and extremely useful utility/laundry room, providing space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and additional white goods such as a deep freezer. There are various storage and kitchen cupboards, with a double sink and drainer to one side and a door leading out to the rear patio and on to the garden.
Adjacent to the utility is a ground floor bedroom, which looks out to the garden, and a bathroom. Following the hallway to the rear of the property, one finds the extension comprising a further bedroom/study and the garden room. The triple-aspect garden room has sliding patio doors and would suit a variety of uses, such as an office, hobbies room or play room.
On the first floor are two further bedrooms and a shower room. The principal bedroom is located to the front, with the rear bedroom benefitting from a range of fitted cupboard and wardrobe space, and an attractive outlook over the rear garden. There is eaves storage running alongside both bedrooms. Nestled between the two, the shower room is fully tiled and is fitted with an enclosed shower cubicle, wash basin and WC, with a linen cupboard providing additional storage.OUTSIDE
To the front of the property is a small lawned garden with well-stocked borders, flanked by a pathway to the front door on one side and the driveway to the other. There is plenty of space for off-road parking - sufficient for up to three vehicles - in addition to the DETACHED GARAGE (17'6 x 9'0) which has power and lighting internally. Pathways lead around both sides of the dwelling to the rear, where there is a good size lawned garden bisected by an archway, again with mature borders planted with an array of flowering shrubs and plants. Outside of the garden room can be found a paved patio ideal for barbeques and al-fresco dining.SERVICES
