The house is located in a wonderful and hugely convenient position on the edge of Tavistock, within extremely close proximity of both Mount Kelly Prep and Senior Schools, and within just one mile of the town centre. Whitchurch Down is only 1.5 miles away, whilst the full expanse of Dartmoor is directly accessible on foot from the house through the neighbouring lanes, just half a mile further.
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 is 15 miles to the south and the city of Exeter lies 40 miles to the northeast, providing transport to London and the rest of the UK via its railway links and the M5.DESCRIPTION
This comfortable and characterful, extended period home provides spacious and extremely versatile accommodation complemented externally by some beautifully landscaped, mature gardens. An impressive, 3-storey Duke of Bedford cottage with several interesting, original features, the house offers a country lifestyle, with a superb sense of space and privacy, in conjunction with a huge degree of convenience. With the proportions and outside space to make it an ideal family home, the house would also suit those seeking an annexe or income opportunity, and there is plenty of scope to extend the property further if necessary.
