Additional attractions include a hospital, a bustling Pannier Market and a full range of schools both State and Private. Indeed Tavistock can claim to have everything adding up to a quality of life which would be hard to rival.

Description A characterful and imposing Grade II listed Victorian family home, of rendered stone elevations under a slate roof. The spacious, light and airy accommodation is arranged over four floors, and incorporates a lower ground floor two bedroom annexe with private front and rear access which could be incorporated into the main house, used as a separate letting unit providing income potential, or for use by a dependent relative.
The property retains much original character with period features including sash windows, fireplaces, original mouldings, architraves and high corniced ceilings, alongside modern comforts such as a gas fired central heating system. The property has undergone a programme of modernisation and renovation in recent years and the current owners have installed heating on the top floor, as well as replacing two bathrooms and installing a shower room on the ground floor, and there are a variety of new windows throughout the property. Externally, the fascia boards have been replaced, the roof repaired, two chimneys rebuilt and a variety of timbers replaced.
Outside there are level gardens to both the front and rear and there is a double garage which fronts onto Chapel Street, below which are further useful storage rooms.
