This delightful period family home is filled with bright, inviting and proportionately spacious rooms that can accommodate various lifestyles, appealing to couples and families of all sizes, as well as those who wish to downsize or find a place to stay in the sought after stannary town of Tavistock.
Refreshed and re-painted by the present owners, the house emanates warmth, comfort and versatility, complete with charming details like exposed stonework, traditional fireplaces and original wooden floors. Externally, there are attractive terraced gardens at the rear of the house that have been carefully designed and landscaped with a number of spots for leisure, recreation or gardening. On the top level of the terraces, one can find spectacular, almost 180° views of the city and surrounding countryside. The property is being offered to the market with no chain.
On entry, one is welcomed by a mosaic-tiled hallway with two doors on either side to the reception rooms, a rear door to the courtyard, access to the kitchen and stairs to the first floor. The sitting room has a delightful open cast iron fireplace and exposed floorboards, while the dining room is complemented by an impressive stone fireplace with a multi-fuel stove and slate hearth.
Through an opening in the dining room, one can enter the kitchen, which is filled with bright, elegant cabinetry and timber worktops, a Hoover electric oven and Hotpoint induction hob, and space below the counter for a dishwasher. A door from the kitchen leads to the courtyard with its utility outbuilding.
On the half-landing is the spacious family bathroom with a panelled bath, heritage basin and WC, plus a heated towel rail. Ascending to the first floor, there are three charming double bedrooms, the largest being the master, featuring a working open fireplace (which used to be two rooms), as well as an en-suite shower room.
To the rear of the house, there is an enclosed courtyard with stone steps leading up to the gardens. From the courtyard, there is also access to a cellar storage area and a useful utility outbuilding with electricity, lighting and space for laundry appliances. The gardens have been separated into several sections, including two big wooden decking areas bordered by stone walls, planted borders and raised lawns that could be ideal for growing vegetables. On the topmost terrace, one can find a quiet and secluded area to appreciate the stunning panorama of the city and surrounding countryside.
