This hugely impressive, modern family home is conveniently situated in the very heart of Tavistock, enjoying a good degree of privacy and benefiting from some far-reaching views across the town towards the Devon countryside beyond. The full range of the town's superb facilities and amenities is within easy reach.
Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating back to the 10th century. 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 focused around the Pannier Market and Bedford Square, in which regular farmer's markets are held. 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.
Offering approximately 5,000 sq. ft. of immaculately presented accommodation and sitting in 0.69 acres of landscaped gardens and grounds, this distinctively designed, contemporary house with a high-quality finish is truly a one-off. The versatile, family-oriented accommodation comprises 6 double bedrooms, 4 receptions and 6 bathrooms, with every room in the house being extremely well-proportioned. Externally, the interior is complemented by large landscaped gardens, a hot tub and triple garage. Adjoining the house, the attached annexe provides flexibility for dual-family occupancy or income generation, although it could also be incorporated into the main accommodation. Properties of this size and style, within such a sizeable plot, are exceptionally rare within the town.
The property is entered on the ground floor through brick pillars and a covered portico into a spacious reception hall with solid oak flooring; a separate cloakroom and boot cupboard can be found at the rear. The beautiful split staircase provides an impressive first impression to this statement home. To one side of the hall is a bright, dual-aspect drawing room with patio doors to the terrace, and an electric fire with marble surround and hearth. To the rear is a dual-aspect sitting room, currently used as a family TV room. Opposite the drawing room is the formal dining room complete with bespoke open-fronted cabinets and shelving. The superb kitchen, with its substantial range of units, Cookcenter range and black granite worktops, is very much the hub of this home, featuring a striking central island sufficient in size to seat 10. Beyond the kitchen is a generous laundry room with ample space for several appliances and a wall of full-height cupboards. A tiled shower room can also be found on the ground floor. At first floor level, the galleried landing is another spectacular feature of this property and provides access to four principal double bedrooms, the family bathroom and walk-in linen cupboard. The triple-aspect master bedroom suite is served by a beautiful, fully-tiled en-suite shower room and a large dressing room with doors to the south-facing balcony, from where one can enjoy the surrounding views of the town and local countryside. The second bedroom also benefits from a well-appointed en-suite. An additional feature of this property is the versatile annexe, which has been cleverly designed with interconnecting doorways on both floors, thereby opening up possible uses as either a self-contained 2-bedroom dwelling, separate guest accommodation or as additional living space. On the ground floor is a large, bright and open living space (currently set up as a gym), an open-plan bedroom and a spacious wet room (formerly a separate kitchen). Stairs lead to the first floor where there is a further en-suite bedroom with a dressing area, which, with a door to the landing, could be utilised as a fifth bedroom within the main house.
The house sits within a generous plot of 0.69 acres and is approached along a tarmac and gravel driveway, sufficient for parking numerous vehicles and leading to the triple garage (one double door, one single). Steps rise from the driveway to a large south-facing sun terrace enclosed by railings and leading to a timber deck with hot tub. The garden has been cleverly designed and landscaped with terraces and ramps to provide good access and to make the most of the spectacular views enjoyed by this property. There is a timber garden shed along with various raised and planted areas, mature hedges and shrubs providing privacy.
