Guide of 330,000 Freehold


Sitting within one of Tavistock’s most sought-after locations, in a quiet cul-de-sac, a late 1960’s cavity block-built three bedroom detached bungalow set in a beautifully established and private southerly aspect garden.

The property is approached via its gated tarmacadam driveway which leads to the a single garage and front forecourt. Entered into the central body of accommodation via a glaz ed wall into a gracious reception hallway with two wings either side providing living and sleeping quarters. To the left, passing the updated cloak and bathroom (with ’Mira’ sport over-bath shower) are the bedrooms all overlooking the front garden with the two doubles being surprisingly double-aspect.

Turning right leading off the hall is the well fitted kitchen boasting two floor to ceiling cupboards one housing a wall mounted British Gas central heating boiler. Onwards is the 27’ spacious sitting-dining room which opens on into a 13’ conservatory linking the delightful southerly facing garden to this well planned living space. This room benefits from a focal fireplace with a gas-fired insert and ceiling coving adding to its ambience.

Considered to be one of the finest spots in this desirable location, it is enhanced further by a ‘Plantsmans Paradise’ creating a spectacular landscaped garden within a practically rectangular garden. In essence this garden plot has a profusion of well-chosen plants within flower beds set within a two tiered lawned garden at the rear which backs onto natural Devon hedge boundary. Whist to the front a low wall and double wrought-iron gates lead onto driveway parking for 3/4 vehicles to a single garage with light & power and rear door to the rear garden providing ease of access for gardening. Behind the walled front garden is a rectangular lawn with a well stocked surrounding flower boarder. A further gate leads through the to front garden, on the opposite side of the driveway, into an inner courtyard area housing an aluminium greenhouse 8’ x 6’ with light and power and located just outside the kitchen door is an external water tap. Stepping into the back garden unfolds the delightful vista. Slightly raised on the left hand boundary, tucked away, is a timber garden shed.

SITUATION : Within about fifteen minutes’ walk are the varied amenities of Tavistock and in the opposite direction, Whitchurch down, and Dartmoor National Park beyond.
