3 1

'Orchard Hill' is a detached three bedroom bungalow situated on a third of an acre plot in Tavistock. The property sits in an elevated position on a unique plot with mature gardens - giving a secluded feel but with views over the town and towards the Moors. There is also a private pathway at the end of the garden leading directly to West Street, meaning you are only a minutes walk from all the high street shops and cafe's, whilst still retaining a quiet and peaceful surrounding.

You enter the bungalow to a large porch area, with double doors taking you in to a bright sitting/dining room with bay window over the garden. Next is the kitchen which requires some modernisation but has some integrated appliances. A long central hallway takes you to a shower room, separate WC and useful study area. The three bedrooms are all good size doubles, with one currently being used as a reception room.

Externally, the gardens are split level and a real selling feature, with a paved terrace running along the front of the property. There are several lawned areas and a pond with plenty of mature trees to create interesting focal points. To the side is a patio area plus three outbuildings, one used as a utility room. Steps lead up to a single garage and off road parking for one vehicle. Steps from the rear of the garden lead to a gate onto West Street.
