Property description

Description This beautifully appointed, large country house nestles in a quiet corner of the Tamar Valley and enjoys commanding views over the river and the surrounding countryside. The spacious accommodation has been sympathetically altered and improved in recent years and offers highly versatile living space which can be easily tailored to suit a variety of family needs. The house could easily be divided to accommodate two families, whilst there is also a separate detached cottage within the grounds which can be used as a holiday let to provide income or for business use. The house stands in its own extensive grounds and gardens. There is a heated swimming pool, sheltered terrace, ample parking and three garages. Sixteen photovoltaic panels were installed on the roof of the property in early 2014. 

Townlake is a small hamlet that lies close to the ancient crossing point of the River Tamar at Horsebridge where there is a village pub, The Royal Inn, renowned for good food.  

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.

Plymouth is only 15 miles away with fast Inter City rail links to London, Bristol and the North. There are also ferry services to Roscoff, Brittany and Santander, Northern Spain.
