This appealing period property is located in an elevated position within the heart of Tavistock, benefitting from an interesting outlook across the surrounding townscape. Located half a mile from the town centre, the full range of Tavistock'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, 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. The cathedral city of Exeter lies some 40 miles to the northeast, providing railway and motorway connections to London and the rest of the UK.

A very comfortable and conveniently located period home forming part of a characterful building of some historical note, which once served as the town's hospital. Approximately 200 years old in its current form, there are records of a building being located on the site as far back as the time of Tavistock's famous Benedictine Abbey. Today, this three double bedroom home offers attractive and well-balanced accommodation, presented in excellent condition and complemented externally by ample off-road parking, a front lawn and a very pretty walled courtyard garden.

The accommodation is bright, well-proportioned and maintained in excellent condition throughout, with character elements including high ceilings with decorative mouldings, window seats and flagstone slate floors. The property is accessed through a shared front entrance lobby into a side hallway, from where there are doors to an inner hall and a rear porch, with the latter leading out to the courtyard garden. Off the inner hall are the reception room, kitchen and a useful WC. The reception room faces the front and benefits from the southerly outlook towards the town, and there is a secondary pedestrian door leading out to the front drive. The breakfast kitchen is equipped with an excellent range of cupboards and units to three walls, with solid timber work surfaces. Appliances include a range cooker and dishwasher, with additional spaces for laundry appliances. From the hallway, stairs lead to the first floor landing which provides access to each of the three double bedrooms and the shower room. Additionally, there is ladder access to the vaulted loft, which currently offers substantial storage space and may also offer potential for conversion, subject to any necessary consents or approvals. The loft has power connected and is naturally well-lit by a porthole window to the front and a Velux to the rear.

The property is approached across a private entrance into a large forecourt, where there is private off-road parking space for up to three vehicles. In front of the parking area is a small enclosed lawn, from where one can take advantage of the outlook across the town towards neighbouring countryside. At the rear of the house is a very pretty, walled courtyard garden which is block paved, with a deep raised border on two sides featuring two beautiful specimen Japanese Acers and one large Wisteria. In one corner is a timber garden shed.

All mains-supplied services are connected to the property, with gas central heating throughout. Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.

We understand that the property is subject to a small flying freehold. For further details, please contact Stags.
