Advance to Go (and collect $200)

Santa brought us an incredible and unique present this Christmas.  A personalised Monopoly board with the property squares filled by Dartmoor tors, towns and landmarks!  With the Moor's combination of railway stations, water works and hotels, there is no shortage of sites perfect to convert to Monopoly sites.

The "fast-dealing property trading game" has resulted in some great purchases of des-res's in perfect locations, but WITC notes another real life property worthy of a Dartmoor monopoly board:  Tavistock Railway Station.  With a price-tag of at least £1.25 million, this is worthy of the Mayfair square.  It is a truly stunning site to own though.  Grade II listed, with 3 five-star holiday cottages, this is more than a house - it is a business opportunity.

You might have seen the property on TV, when then the current sellers developed it on Channel 4's show 'Property Snakes and Ladders' in 2008.  Beautifully decorated, and in a spectacular position in the West Dartmoor town.  Estate agent Fine & Country's brochure is here.

Whether you'll have any say, as owner, in the plans for the re-opening of the Plymouth to Tavistock railway line is another matter!
