This sizeable bungalow is located on a substantial, south-facing site on the northern fringe of Calstock, enjoying picturesque open views to the south, towards the River Tamar and Calstock viaduct, and Cotehele House to the southwest. The property benefits from a high degree of privacy whilst also being within easy reach of the village centre, amenities and transport links. A former inland port on the tidal path of the River Tamar, Calstock is now enjoyed by sailing enthusiasts who use the quay and mooring facilities, with the village enjoying a good community spirit and a regular, 30-minute train service to the City of Plymouth. The Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), along the Devon/Cornwall border, offers superb opportunities to discover the region's rich heritage. The thriving market town of Tavistock in West Devon, with its superb range of shopping, recreational and educational facilities, is just 7.5 miles away to the northeast.

A former organic market garden, the property is set within approximately 4.4 acres of gardens and grounds, and offers immense potential to be adapted for a number of uses including as a smallholding or equestrian facility (with some adaptation), providing an idyllic country lifestyle. The bungalow itself is interesting in design and provides 3-bedroom accommodation suitable for a variety of lifestyles, and this is further expanded by the addition of an attached, self-contained 1-bedroom annexe which is finished to a modern standard and would be ideal for two-family occupancy. Around the site are various outbuildings, including a workshop, machinery shed, several stores and a large greenhouse.

This flowing accommodation is currently arranged into the two distinct areas that form the main accommodation and the separate annexe, providing perfect multi-generational living. Whilst strictly speaking a bungalow, the property has been designed over three levels creating an interesting and individual living space. The main residence has three good sized bedrooms serviced by a family bathroom and separate shower room, a large kitchen/dining area, sitting room with wood burner and an open-plan sunroom with direct access into the garden. The modern 1-bedroom attached annexe has a sizeable sitting room, separate kitchen/dining area and en-suite double bedroom, with underfloor heating throughout.

The principal feature of this property is undoubtedly the south-facing gardens and grounds, extending to approximately 4.4 acres in all (see our location plan). Formerly a productive organic market garden, the grounds still retain an apple orchard filled with local Tamar Valley varieties, an area of natural woodland and wild meadow, as well as more formal gardens. The quiet and secluded nature of the property provide the perfect habitat for wildlife and would be the perfect home for a nature enthusiast as well as keen gardeners, budding smallholders or for more commercially-orientated purposes, returning the property to a working market garden.

Many of the original buildings remain from this property's former life as a market garden - all of which have power connected - including a substantial greenhouse (although in need of some repair), a large workshop, storage sheds, machinery/tool store (with power, water and an inspection pit), static caravan (used as a games room) and useful shipping container. These buildings offer significant potential for a variety of applications.

Mains water (separate meters for the bungalow and grounds), electricity and drainage. LPG-fired central and under-floor heating. Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.
