Property description

Situation A ground floor apartment located in a purpose-built warden assisted retirement complex, on the northern fringes of Tavistock within easy level walking distance of the town centre and all the amenities therein.

Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of the Dartmoor National Park and was in 2004 voted the winner of a nationwide survey undertaken by the Council for the Protection of Rural England involving 120 other market towns. Among the assets taken into consideration were history, architecture, community spirit, planning sensitivity, recreational facilities and individuality of shops and businesses. 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.
