The pretty Stannary town of Tavistock sits on the banks of the river Tavy, offering a wide range of shopping, banking, leisure and schooling facilities, including both Tavistock College and Mount Tavy public school. The nearby maritime city of Plymouth is approx. 17 miles away and the Cathedral city of Exeter is approx. 45 minutes drive away.
Sitting on the western fringe of Dartmoor National Park the property offers easy access to open moorland for those who enjoy hill walking or mountain biking and there is a large park in the centre of town borded by the river on one side and the old canal on the other, offering pleasant walks and recreational areas. The town centre is a minutes level walk making it ideal for those requiring easy access.
A substantial period home offering three double bedrooms and at the rear of the property is a south facing courtyard garden, which the vendors inform us is a pleasant sun trap during the summer months. Off road parking for one to two vehicles. Beyond the courtyard is a further area of three visitors parking spaces, which are shared between this property and a number of other properties within this select close which is set away from the rear of the property.
