North Tawton is perfectly situated for those looking for a central Devon location. There’s easy access to the A30 at Whiddon Down making light work of driving to Exeter or Okehampton plus fairly equal travel times to the North and South Devon coasts and not to mention Dartmoor being a stone’s throw away. Combine all of this with a small but lively town containing shops, cafes, doctor and pharmacy to name but a few, it’s an ideal base from which to enjoy all the county has to offer.
Located in a central location and within easy reach of the town's amenities (without needing to drive), this spacious home is beautifully presented and very much ready for a new owner to move into and enjoy. The property is believed to date back to as early as 1690 and there’s still plenty of character and charm to be found, whilst the property also offers the mod-cons of 21st century living with mains gas central heating and even an en-suite to the main bedroom. It is Grade II listed and the front (original) part of the house is thatched with slate covering the more modern rear extensions.
The layout is traditional with a central hallway and 2 receptions rooms, both generous in size with plenty of light from the front. The kitchen overlooks the rear garden and has room for a breakfast table. There’s a useful utility and shower/WC room too which completes the ground floor. From the dining room, stairs rise to the first floor landing which provides access to the 4 bedrooms, all of a good size with 3 overlooking the front and the master bedroom and en-suite to the rear of the property.
To the rear is a beautiful garden (approx. 25m x 10m) with a lower paved seating area and stone steps up to the lawned garden. The planted beds are an abundance of colour in the Spring and Summer and soften the fenced boundaries. There’s a useful greenhouse and a workshop/office/store with power and light which is approx. 2.5m x 4m with a stable door and decked veranda. It’s worth noting that there is a gateway for ease of access to the park behind, ideal for families!
There isn’t any off-road parking but the road to the front is unrestricted (no time limit) and just a few metres up the road is a car park too.
Please see the floorplan for room sizes.

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.
