Trinity House is a fabulously presented Grade II Listed property which has been completely renovated by the current owners to create an elegant family home with flexible living space. The house has retained its original features including large sash windows, decorative fireplaces with slate mantelpieces, high ceilings and cornicing. An integral apartment on the lower ground floor provides the potential for income, or would be very suitable for additional family members and guests.
The entrance into an elegant orangery leads into a spacious entrance hall from where the reception rooms are accessed. To the right of the entrance hall is the kitchen/dining room, featuring a wood burner and a Harrogate limestone floor. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of high specification fittings (all NEFF or AEG) including a steam oven, electric oven, microwave oven, proving drawer, induction hob, instant boiling water tap, waste disposal unit, kitchen island with floor-level heater fans and larder cupboard. There is also a large front aspect drawing room with original Victorian painted doors, a wood burner and a bay window with original shutters. To the rear of the ground floor is a snug with a wood burner within an original slate fireplace, plus a cloakroom with underfloor heating.
On the first floor there are three large double bedrooms, two with original fireplaces and fitted storage, and one with an en suite shower room. There is a large, contemporary shower room with a walk-in rain shower and electric underfloor heating, as well as a useful laundry room which could be converted into a further bathroom if required as the plumbing is in place.
The large master bedroom suite is on the second floor. This bedroom has the benefit of underfloor heating, a very good size dressing room and a spacious en suite bathroom with underfloor heating, a rain shower, porcelain tiling and twin basins.
Trinity House has an integral annexe on the lower ground floor, providing excellent potential for an income. It could also be used as flexible accommodation for additional family members and guests. There are separate entrances from both the front and back gardens. A spacious sitting room, featuring an original stove and Harrogate flagstone floor, provides the main living space. The kitchen is accessed from here; equipped with a microwave oven, fridge freezer, electric oven and a range of attractive fitted units. There is also a handy separate utility room. The good-size double bedroom, with an adjoining dressing room, has a large sash window that provides plenty of light and pleasant views of the gardens. A shower room with modern tiles and fittings completes the lower ground floor.
Trinity House is situated in the centre of Tavistock, just moments from a number of amenities including tennis courts, a recreational park, bowling club, library, cinema and theatre. Tavistock is a thriving market town adjoining the western edge of Dartmoor National Park. Facilities include a hospital, GP surgery, bustling town centre shopping area and historical Pannier Market. There are a wide range of well-regarded state and private schools within the area, including the renowned Mount Kelly private school, and the Plymouth grammar schools are also in close proximity.
The historic naval port of Plymouth is approximately 14.5 miles away and offers yet more extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities including three theatres, Drakes Circus shopping centre, many sporting facilities and a fine university. The Barbican area has retail art galleries, numerous bars and eating places, including the Barbican Kitchen and River Cottage Canteen at Royal William Yard. The port has regular cross-channel ferry services to Brittany and northern Spain. There is also a mainline railway service from Plymouth to London Paddington.
The cathedral city of Exeter, approximately 38 miles away, is the most thriving city in the South West. The city offers a wealth of cultural activities with the theatre, the museum, arts centre and a variety of good shopping, including John Lewis, Waitrose and many restaurants. A number of primary and secondary schools can be found in Exeter including Exeter School and The Maynard School, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best universities in the country.
Trinity House has ample space to park a number of vehicles to the rear of the house on its private drive. The front and rear gardens are beautifully presented and have been recently landscaped to an excellent standard. At the front, the house is set back from the road and there is an area of lawn with a good level of privacy provided by high hedging. To the side and rear of the property are terraced gardens with a variety of seating areas, ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, separated by trellises adorned with climbing plants. The gardens are southeast facing; enjoying the sun for much of the day. There is a vegetable garden area and an irrigation system is fitted to provide automatic timed water to the plants around the garden. A shed and a bespoke log store provide storage.
Within the gardens is a superb detached outbuilding, currently used as a gym and sauna with a family room above, but it could be adapted to suit a number of purposes.
