This expansive house is located in Gulworthy, 1.5 miles to the west of Tavistock. Gulworthy is a hamlet and civil parish largely situated within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and forming part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area offers a very quaint and peaceful, semi-rural lifestyle in some extremely beautiful, verdant surroundings. The hamlet is centered around St Paul's Church, plus the neighbouring parish hall and Ofsted Outstanding-rated primary school. There is quick, direct access into Tavistock on the A390, upon which this property sits (please see our location plan and the available Street View). Tavistock is a thriving market town in West Devon, rich in history and tradition dating 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. Plymouth, with its coastal access, is 16 miles to the south. The cathedral city of Exeter lies 37 miles to the northeast, providing railway and motorway connections to the rest of the UK, plus an international airport.

This sizeable detached house is a substantial and truly individual period home with great character, superb room sizes and a large garden with excellent potential. Formerly a Public House and most recently a Guest House, the property totals almost 3,000sq.ft, with each of the four large double bedrooms benefitting from its own en-suite bath or shower room, making it an ideal prospect for B&B use. The master suite, in particular, is huge and also has its own external door to an area of private garden, whilst another of the bedrooms is on the ground floor and thereby offers great annexe potential. The reception rooms are equally as spacious, with a large living room, separate dining room and newly fitted kitchen, plus a utility and workshop. Externally, there is lawn garden, good off-road parking and an additional area of 0.26 acres, formerly a car park, offering further possibilities or simply extensive additional parking.

The property is accessed via steps to the front porch which leads into the sizeable living room, at the far end of which is the newly fitted kitchen complete with a smart range of modern units and cupboards. Off the sitting room is the separate dining room which has patio doors to the garden and also leads to the ground floor en-suite bedroom. An inner hall from the living room leads to a utility room and another ancillary area, formerly the commercial kitchen, which is now empty and could be adapted for a number of different uses such as a play room, office or gym. To one side of the utility is a good size workshop. At first floor level are three further double bedrooms with en-suite facilities, each of which enjoys attractive views of the surrounding countryside. The master bedroom is an extremely large, triple-aspect room, over 28ft in length.

To the front of the house is a fenced parking area sufficient for several cars. Opposite is a further area (see our location plan), formerly the pub car park, which could accommodate numerous vehicles, including a motorhome, truck, boat or trailer, and which may also offer other possibilities, such as the space on which to build a garage or other outbuildings (subject to planning). The main garden extends away on the house's northern side, being mainly lid to lawn and enclosed by hedging and Devon banks. Smaller areas of garden can be found to the side ad rear of the house, offering very private and sheltered space from which to take in the views.

Mains water, gas and electricity are connected. There is gas central heating throughout. Private drainage via septic tank. Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.
