Location


Set in an enviable and secluded location, on the northern outskirts of Tavistock, the property lies within convenient (0.5 mile) distance of the town centre and occupies a south facing position from which it commands a stunning prospect over Tavistock and the surrounding rolling countryside of South West Devon as far as the foothills of Dartmoor in the distance.

Straddling the fast flowing River Tavy below the western edge of Dartmoor, Tavistock stands in an area of tremendous natural beauty. This is a classic Westcountry market town with a good and interesting range of shopping facilities including notable boutiques and delicatessens, various state schools and renowned public schools including preparatory and a senior college. Recreational facilities include nearby golf courses, cricket, rugby, football, tennis club, The Wharf Cultural Centre and indoor sports.

The wide expanses of Whitchurch Down and the Dartmoor National Park are accessed approximately 1.5 miles from the property and provides boundless leisure opportunities.

Plymouth has a fascinating and historic waterfront, with a wide range of shopping and recreational amenities including a cross channel ferryport and a main line railway station (Plymouth to London Paddington 3 hours).

There is a branch line railway at Gunnislake (5 miles) which provides a useful commuting facility.

Description


In the same family ownership since construction in 1928 this is the first time that Everest has been available on the open market. The property represents a unique opportunity to purchase a detached family house privately located at the end of a long drive.

In addition to the colourful gardens the property benefits from approximately 12 acres of pasture land with a stream providing natural water on the western boundary. The land will appeal to those with equestrian or smallholding interests.

The house retains many original features and has the modern conveniences of full uPVC double glazing and gas fired central heating. Whilst found to be well presented, there is no doubt that some purchasers may see opportunities to improve or even perhaps extend the accommodation depending on individual needs. The house is well proportioned with accommodation extending to 2018 sq ft (187.4 sq metres).

The entrance door opens into an 18ft sun room. Formerly a verandah providing a fine vantage point from which to observe the garden and views during inclement weather.

The reception hall serves the principal living accommodation including a dual aspect sitting room with open fireplace and wide bay window.

The dining room, again with a dual aspect, open fireplace and French doors opening into the sun room.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a gas fired Rayburn Royal with back boiler which serves the hot water system.

The rear lobby opens into a very useful utility room with separate WC, fuel bunker and convenient access to the integral garage.

At first floor level there are four bedrooms, together with a family bathroom. Bedroom two has a store room off providing the potential for an en suite shower room or dressing.

Outside


The property is approached over a private driveway providing ample parking and leading to the integral garage with electric up and over door. Light, power and water connected. The drive continues past the property with an additional:-

Garage/tractor shed 19'6' x 12'6' (5.94m x 3.81m) With up and over door and having light and power connected.

The gardens


The gardens are a particular feature of the property extending to approximately 0.85 acre and predominantly laid to level lawn with established tree and shrub bed borders and a fine south and west aspect.

Adjacent to the south side of the house there is a gravelled terrace with an electrically operated awning from the sun room. Steps rise to a raised patio with brick built open fronted summerhouse beneath which is a fascinating old air raid shelter.

Part of the garden is laid over to a productive kitchen garden with various fruit trees and outbuildings including:-
workshop 13'3' x 7'3' (4.04m x 2.21m)

pottng shed/greenhouse 10'7' x 7'5' (3.23m x 2.26m)

The land


The 12 acres of pasture lie to the north and west of the garden and is contained within three enclosures. A stream lies on the western boundary with the ability for livestock to take water. Immediately to the north of the pasture there are a further 20 acres of land, again laid to pasture, and available to purchase by separate negotiation. This additional land has the benefit of a further road access and there is also a small range of derelict farm buildings within the first field.

Services


Mains water, electricity and drainage. Gas fired central heating. Gas fired Rayburn serving the hot water.
