EPC Band: D
This house is situated on the perennially popular Bishopsmead development on the southeast side of Tavistock, which is convenient for those commuting both into the town and into the city of Plymouth, and particularly with the regular bus service between the two stopping just a few hundred yards away. An extremely good range of shopping facilities are close at hand, with Morrisons, Tesco and Lidl supermarkets all within roughly half a mile, as well as a fuel station at Morrisons. To the east is Whitchurch village with its post office/general store and public house - again, within half a mile - and which also leads up to Whitchurch Common on the edge of the Dartmoor National Park.
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
This sturdy mid-terrace property, built in the 1970s, occupies a pleasant, extremely convenient position within this popular development. Solidly built in the traditional manner, mainly of cavity masonry, with spar-dash rendered elevations beneath a concrete tile roof, the house is currently in need of some attention to the external presentation, and some modernisation and decoration internally, but would otherwise make a superb first-time or investment purchase. Benefitting from an enclosed patio courtyard and a garage to the rear, the house is well-rounded and is also served by mains services and double glazed windows.ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is clearly shown on the floorplan overleaf, being accessed through an entrance porch into the reception room, from where stairs rise to the first floor. Beyond the reception room is the breakfast kitchen which is fitted with a range of wall and base units to two walls, with an integrated electric oven and four-ring gas hob over, inset stainless steel sink unit with drainer, space and plumbing for washing machine, and space for a tall, freestanding fridge/freezer.
At first floor level can be found the two double bedrooms and a family bathroom, with the latter comprising a panel-enclosed bath with mains-fed shower attachment over, pedestal wash-hand basin and close-coupled WC, with part-tiled walls and a heated towel rail.OUTSIDE
A pathway to the entrance door is flanked on one side by the front lawn, with a variety of herbaceous shrubs and plants along the border. The rear garden is low-maintenance, consisting of a paved patio area, ideal for alfresco dining, again with a few flowering plants along the border. A gate leads from the rear garden to a block of residents' garages, within which is the GARAGE serving this property. One parking space is available in front of the garage.SERVICES
