The property is located in the highly popular hamlet of Grenofen on the southern fringes of the Dartmoor National Park, with excellent road access to Tavistock town centre and the city of Plymouth. This is an enviable and most convenient location.
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. The town offers a superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, including the independent boarding and day school, Mount Kelly. The largely 19th century town centre is focussed around the large Parish Church, the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. Tavistock straddles the river Tavy and borders the eastern edge of Dartmoor National Park, 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 which is, naturally, particularly appealing to sailing enthusiasts. 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
A detached three bedroom bungalow in a truly enviable position, offering breathtaking, panoramic views across the Walkham Valley. Built in 1975 of traditional cavity masonry beneath a concrete tiled roof, this is the first time that the property has been offered for sale on the open market. The property sits amongst its own gardens on all sides, with an adjoining paddock to the south beyond a substantial patio sun terrace, and features parking for several vehicles in addition to an attached garage.ACCOMMODATION
The property's flexible accommodation is illustrated on the floor plan overleaf, being accessed through a glazed front door into the entrance hall, with three useful built-in cupboards, one housing the combi boiler. The kitchen comprises a comprehensive range of wall and base units with worktops over, built-in eye-level double oven, electric hob and inset 1-1/2 bowl stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap. A door leads from the kitchen to the utility lobby which has space and plumbing for a washing machine, and space for a chest freezer. Doors lead to the dining room, which offers stunning far reaching views across Walkham Valley, and the family shower room comprising a corner shower cubicle housing an electric shower, close coupled WC and pedestal wash basin. These three rooms would lend themselves to use as an annexe or a guest/holiday letting room.
The dual-aspect sitting room, very much the property's centrepiece, has been positioned to take advantage of the incredible panoramic views over Walkham Valley, with sliding patio doors leading outside to the substantial, south-facing sun terrace, whilst also featuring a multi-fuel stove set into a stone hearth.
There are three double bedrooms, two offering built-in wardrobes and the incredible views on the bungalow's southern side. The family bathroom comprises a panel enclosed bath with shower attachment over, wash basin set into a vanity unit, heated towel rail, part-tiled walls and an enclosed cistern WC.OUTSIDE
The property is approached via the parish road and accessed over a private road which leads to the driveway, offering off-road parking for several vehicles. The gardens are mainly to the rear of the property although the front garden offers a herbaceous bed with mature shrubs. The rear garden is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by hedging and fencing. A huge patio extends along the rear of the property which would be ideal for alfresco dining whilst taking in the the panoramic views. The patio has been built with an extension in mind and would meet the necessary specification for foundational stability, should someone want to extend. There is a useful WORKSHOP with power and light that houses the equipment for the private borehole water supply. Beyond the workshop is a vegetable patch with raised beds making it ideal for the green-fingered enthusiast.
The paddock adjoins the garden and is bordered by a mixture of wire fencing and natural Devon hedging. The field would lend itself to either the equestrian enthusiast or someone wanting a smallholding. The whole plot extends to apprximately 2.2 acres.SERVICES
