It’s certainly a house that stands out, in fact the owners commented on the attention it gets from people passing. Located at the top of Fore Street and ideally located for enjoying the town’s amenities (being only a minute on foot), the house was designed over 3 floors and is unlike any of the neighbouring houses making it a unique opportunity. With an open plan ground floor (it’s understood to have been many things in the past including shops and offices), 4 bedrooms and a garden with parking, it’s got the recipe for appealing to a range of buyers. The house, although unique, isn’t listed and benefits from uPVC double glazing and mains gas central heating.
Upon entry from Fore Street, an entrance vestibule with storage buffers the living spaces from the pavement to the front – perfect for those with pets or children. The open plan ground floor offers a light space with two windows on the front elevation and double doors at the back to the garden. High ceilings add to the feeling of space. There is a well fitted kitchen with a large Range cooker (available by separate negotiation), which is a practical and social space. The living room could be used as a dining room and the living room then be housed on the first floor should separate spaces be preferred. On the first floor is a stylish bathroom with separate shower and a free-standing bath. The master bedroom with storage has a lovely bay window and as previously mentioned, could be used as another reception room. Up again and there are the further 3 bedrooms.
Outside, to the rear of the kitchen, a wide pathway leads to the enclosed garden. There are a couple of sheds for storage and then a gated area with parking for a vehicle. There is access via a small lane owned by No.1 which allows access to the parking/garden. The garden is easy to maintain with decking and gravel, ideal for pots and the larger area is approx. 8m x 6m plus additional spaces.

NORTH TAWTON is a small town, built alongside the banks of ‘The River Taw’. Settlements in and around the ‘Taw Valley’ experience a haven-like quality, between the often steep-edged hillsides – a contrast to other areas of more open farmland. The town has a selection of shops, a primary school, The Fountain and The White Hart pubs and an undeniably pretty square. For more choice, by way of facilities the larger town of Okehampton is only 5 miles up the road – where access to the A30 dual carriageway (a link to the City of Exeter) can also be found. North Tawton, as with many Devon towns has a prime medieval church, with a west spire adorned with oak shingles. The town is also known for its superb creamery. The Taw Valley Creamery (est 1974) produces award -winning cheeses, revered locally and nationally.
