Peter Tavy

Desirable Dartmoor village
3 miles from Tavistock

Guide of 300,000 Freehold

An individually designed detached house set back from a country lane in the picturesque village of Peter Tavy which nestles down in the western flanks of the Dartmoor National Park just 3 miles from Tavistock.

Built in 1979/80 of traditional cavity block-work construction under a pitched slate roof, this character three bedroom home extends to 1290sqft and sits centrally in a good sized garden with adjacent 19’ detached garage and off-road parking for up to three vehicles.


Noteworthy internal elements are the generous rooms sizes augmented by large window openings. The central chimney stack offers a wood burner in the sitting room but offers potential possible for a cooking range to be fitted in the 24’+ kitchen dining room on the other side of the wall, if desired.


A stone-faced front porch with double-glazed windows leads into a hallway flooded with light from the first floor landing window. The sitting room to the right has a stone fireplace and wooden mantle and an inset multi-fuel wood burner and an 8’4” double glazed window looking out to the front garden. The spacious kitchen-diner ahead runs the full width of the rear elevation, currently with two single-glazed windows and a door to the back garden. There is potential to integrate these spaces by removing the adjoining stud wall.


The staircase (with under-stairs cloakroom) leads to the well lit landing with large airing cupboard and three good sized bedrooms and a bathroom. One double room with double-glazed windows looks out to the front of the house with built in cupboards and the single room has a useful built-in wooden cabin base for a mattress allowing more space for furniture. The second double looks to the rear of the house, with built in cupboards. The family bathroom offers both an oval shaped, roll top bath and separate shower.


The front garden offers privacy behind a Devon hedge boundary topped with beech and includes a pond and patio. A side pathway leads to the back garden which is of good proportion laid to lawn and backs onto a wild meadow bank. With the access from the kitchen/diner leading out into the rear garden this area would be an ideal spot to build a garden room subject to necessary planning consents.


The garage has double doors to the front and a separate access into the rear garden. A single-glazed window to the rear with a work station beneath houses the ‘Grant’ Oil combination boiler. There is a side passageway between the garage and house from which access via a loft hatch is gained to a restricted height loft space over the garage with a velux window offering potential for storage or conversion into a small studio.




The village of Peter Tavy, which may feel remote, is only one mile off the main A386 to Tavistock. It offers a vibrant community with an active village hall for many types of functions as does St Peter’s Church. The 15th century Peter Tavy Inn, renowned for it’s excellent food, is a popular freehold pub and well used by walkers who enjoy the many tracks following the River Tavy up to its Cleave and further on to White and Cox Tor.
