This superb, chain-free detached house can be found on the northern outskirts of Tavistock, tucked away in an exclusive cul-de-sac of just five such properties which enjoy open, verdant surroundings and a good level of privacy.
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
Built in 2007, this extremely well-rounded, executive-style detached house offers comfortable and practical family living space complemented externally by beautiful gardens and extensive parking. Finished to a high standard, noteworthy features include a stunning 20' conservatory, a freestanding logburner in the sitting room, a double garage/studio space, electric car charging point and a sauna to the master bedroom, making this excellent home a definite one-of-a-kind. ACCOMMODATION
The accommodation is clearly identified on the floorplan overleaf, being accessed on the ground floor through a sizeable reception hallway, from where there are stairs rising to the first floor and doors off to the principal reception rooms, the kitchen and the study. Stretching the full depth of the house, the sitting room features a logburning stove mounted on a raised slate hearth, making this an undoubtedly cosy and relaxing room which has the additional benefit of an open outlook across the neighbouring parkland through a large box bay window. At the rear of the room are double doors to the magnificent conservatory - a real highlight of the house - which serves as a spacious, bright and open ancillary reception space linking the sitting and adjacent dining room, and which also leads out to the rear garden, making it ideal for entertaining. Across the hallway, the study also looks out across the parkland in front of the house. Next to the study, the breakfast kitchen is fitted with a very good range of wall-mounted cupboards and base-level units with cut stone work surfaces over, incorporating an integral dishwasher (new as of June 2018). To one side is a substantial, 7-ring gas-fired range cooker with a hotplate and double oven, perfect for family cooking or the aspiring chef. Beyond the kitchen is a good size utility room with additional units and cupboards, a secondary sink and plumbed spaces for laundry appliances. A cloakroom is located off the utility.
At first floor level, off the part-galleried landing, are the four double bedrooms and family bathroom. All of the bedrooms are complete with fitted wardrobes and have windows looking out over the rear garden. The master bedroom enjoys the use of a good size, fully tiled en-suite shower room and the rare, additional benefit of a fitted timber sauna - perfect for relaxing and cleansing after a long day. The second bedroom also has a shower room en suite, whilst the remaining two bedrooms share the use of the 4-piece suite in the family bathroom.OUTSIDE
The house is approached at the front over a short, paved pathway, flanked on either side by a well-kept lawn. To the side of the house is the detached double garage, with driveway space in front for up to 4 vehicles. A "Pod Point" electric vehicle charging point is located adjacent to the driveway on the external wall of the house. The rear garden has been thoughtfully designed for family use, being mostly laid to level lawn with planted and fenced borders. A large paved patio is located outside of the kitchen and adjacent to the conservatory, lending itself perfectly to al-fresco dining, barbeques and family gatherings. A good size timber storage shed is located to one side of the garden.GARAGE/STUDIO
The detached double garage has power and lighting, with twin electric roller-shutter doors to the front and a pedestrian door from the garden to the side. The garage has been converted into a dance studio by the present owners, including under-floor heating beneath a laminate floor covering, making this space ideal for use as a further home office, gym or hobbies/games room. Of course, conversion back to a garage is perfectly possible, as are other uses (STP).SERVICES
