This spacious, detached home is located on the edge of the Tamar Valley village of Chilsworthy, only a mile from the self-contained village of Gunnislake. Within Gunnislake are a Post Office, two general stores catering for day-to-day needs, a café, two primary schools, health centre, public houses and a railway station offering a regular service into the City of Plymouth. A more comprehensive range of shopping facilities can be found at the market town of Tavistock, 6 miles to the east, including a pannier market, leisure centre and many sporting facilities as well as access to the majestic Dartmoor National Park. The city port of Plymouth is some 18 miles to the south of the property with its deep-water marina, regular cross channel ferry ports serving northern France and Spain and a wide range of department stores.

This spacious and extremely versatile family home occupies a private position in the village of Chilsworthy, overlooking the Tamar Valley. Currently set up as a 4-bedroom home with separate home office and library, the house has several possible configurations depending on the incoming owner's requirements. With its elevated position, there are some simply breath-taking views on offer from every room at the front of the house, stretching across the Tamar Valley towards the countryside and Dartmoor beyond. The house is complete with off-road parking and a good sized, south-facing rear garden which offers fantastic potential. The house also benefits from PV panels which reduce the property's electricity bills and provide a tariff-based income.

The property is accessed on the ground floor through a porch into the entrance hallway, where there are doors to the sitting room, dining room and library, as well as stairs to the first floor. The large sitting room is dual-aspect, with a picture window to the front taking advantage of the stunning outlook, whilst there are patio doors at the rear leading out to the garden. The living room opens into the dining room, which in turn provides access to the kitchen. The kitchen is complete with a good range of fitted units and cupboards with worktops over, including an integral oven, separate combination microwave, oven and grill, an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer, a 4-ring induction hob plus extractor hood. Beyond the kitchen is the utility/laundry room and a ground floor cloakroom. Finally on the ground floor is the library, currently complete with a range of bespoke fitted shelving although this room could be converted to other uses very easily. At first floor level are four double bedrooms and the single/study room, plus a bathroom and separate shower room. Positioned at the front of the house, the principal bedroom is a good sized double and has two windows providing a great vantage point for the views. The family bathroom is tiled in travertine stone with underfloor heating, and complete with a jacuzzi-style bath with mains-fed shower over and marble basin set into a vanity unit. The separate shower room features a corner shower enclosure with Mira electric shower.

To the front of the house is off-road parking space for up to four vehicles. A stepped pathway leads to the front door and around the side of the house. Immediately to the rear is a sheltered patio, greenhouse and timber shed, and there are further steps up to the main garden. The top of the garden provides another point from which to take in the views and would make an ideal location for a summerhouse or home office. Finally, there is the possibility of additional vehicle access into the garden using the neighbouring service lane. In all, the garden offers huge potential for those with an active family or the hobby gardener.

Mains water, drainage and electricity. LPG-fired central heating. 40mbps superfast broadband. Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.

PV panels are fitted to the south-facing rear roof elevation. These significantly reduce the owners' electricity bills and provide an income through a feed-in tariff. The owners estimate the benefits of the panels to be around £800 to £1000 per annum
