A five bedroom detached house situated in a private position, within walking distance to Tavistock town centre and Whitchurch Down. Set within just over three quarters of an acre of gardens, the accommodation is versatile and previously the current owners had used part of the ground floor as an annex providing multi-generational living.

The ground floor accommodation comprises of a sitting room, large dining hall with fireplace, garden room, plus kitchen/diner with French doors out on to the garden. There is also a downstairs shower room and large store room. Upstairs are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom, with many of the bedrooms having lovely views over the garden along with far reaching views over Tavistock and surrounding countryside. 

The current owners previously used part of the ground floor as an annex for multi-generational use. Off the sitting room is a second kitchen which if not required could be removed and used as a study, there is separate access to the side of the property giving independent access.

The sitting room is a very good size with a feature fireplace and an extension on the back acts as a bright dining room with double aspect windows and French doors out on to the terrace. There is a modern kitchen with plenty of storage off the sitting room. The annex also has a double bedroom with fitted wardrobes plus a shower room.

The gardens are a real feature of the property and equate to just over three quarters of an acre. The 'entertaining area' can be found directly outside of the house, with several sets of French doors leading out to a large raised terrace, which runs the full width of the house. This is an ideal sunny spot to sit out and enjoy views over the rest of the garden. There is also an attractive wooden summerhouse currently used a pottery studio. Slate steps take you down to a well manicured lawn flanked by borders with paths meandering down to the rest of the garden. There are plenty of mature trees and shrubs and the rear of the garden has the more practical areas hidden away, including compost heaps, storage shed, log stores and a wildlife pond. To the front and side of the house is a further storage shed and lawned area. There is a driveway for several vehicles with a turning circle, plus a single garage to the side.
