IMPOSING PERIOD HOUSE situated in an elevated position on the fringe of town, offering deceptively spacious accommodation over three floors, with exceptionally versatile layout offering scope for a 4/5 bedroom home, with annex potential on the lower ground floor. The property has been much loved by the current owners, and retains many original features such as moulded cornices, ceiling rose, attracted period fireplaces, along with a combination of gas fired central heating, partial double and triple glazing and photo vortex on the double garage roof, which should assist with the overall running costs of the property with the owners being early adopters of the higher tariff. The house itself is possibly one of Tavistock’s iconic properties, set up a long private drive off Butcher Park Hill with exceptional views over the viaduct and Tavistock town towards the open countryside beyond. There is ample parking for numerous vehicles including a detached double garage and open covered carport. There is a productive vegetable garden, lawn gardens with flower and shrub borders as well as an open fronted veranda running around three sides of the property and decked sun terraces beyond, taking full advantage of pleasant views over the town. Tavistock itself is a bustling market town on the fringe of Dartmoor National Park and within easy striking distance of Maritime City of Plymouth, as well as the Cathedral city of Exeter, and the nearby towns
