An attractive two storey wing houses the entrance hall with a large solid timber front door. Most of the rooms are dual or triple aspect providing plenty of natural light to the interior and there is a superb feature drawing room which was the latest extension.
The semi open-plan accommodation on the ground floor provides for an entrance hall leading straight through to a large dining room with a turning staircase to the first floor and a superb feature stone fireplace with woodburning stove. The dining room, is in turn semi open-plan to the drawing room which enjoys triple aspects with lovely views over the gardens and glazed door onto a south west facing terrace. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a lovely sitting room, a kitchen/breakfast room and a cloakroom and boot room/utility. An attractive turning staircase ascends to a huge galleried landing area which is opulent in its spaciousness and provides a lovely sitting/reading area above the front door in a bay. The large double master bedroom has a luxury refitted en-suite bathroom. The principal guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room in white and there are two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and an interconnecting studio/dressing room/occasional bedroom 5, accessed through one bedroom.
Ref: LCAA5942 4 The annexe is the conversion of a former garage and currently provides a modern facility for guests comprising a bed/sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room and a modern white shower room. The grounds are a particularly delightful aspect of the property being well stocked and landscaped providing a profusion of colour through the spring and summer. A subtly contoured driveway enters the grounds via a five bar timber gate hung between granite pillars and winds its way down to the house, affording the house privacy from the road. To the right of the driveway are tiered lawned gardens held back by natural stone walling planted with a variety of rockery loving flowering plants. A large slate screed and paved area provides a delightful south west facing terrace from which to enjoy the daily sun and adjacent to which is an attractive pond. The grounds in all extend to approximately 1.2 acres with the house set reasonably centrally within the grounds which are mainly lawned and well planted with a variety of flowers and shrubs. The boundaries are clearly defined and comprise mature hedging and trees.
LOCATION Situated just a short distance from the Cornish village of St Mellion, made famous by its superb Jack Nicklaus designed 18-hole golf course, the farmhouse enjoys a delightful and peaceful rural hamlet setting with easy access through the lane network to the towns of Callington and Saltash, both of which provide adequate day to day shops and facilities including primary and secondary schools in Callington. Saltash has a mix of high street shops and a Waitrose supermarket. Saltash sits on the south bank of the River Tamar providing access to some excellent sailing and pleasure craft facilities in the safe day sailing waters of Plymouth Sound and the Tamar’s associated rivers and creeks*. On the other side of the River Tamar is the city of Plymouth providing an extremely wide array of
Ref: LCAA5942 5 leisure, commercial and retail facilities that are within easy reach. There is a mainline station in the town of Saltash and in the town of Liskeard, to the south west, both of which provide a direct link to London Paddington with approximate travel time of 4½ hours. * The property is just to the west of the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty ‘AONB’ and just to the east of the National Trust’s Cadsonbury. Also close by is the National Trust’s medieval Cotehele Estate. The former farmhouse is ideally located within easy reach of the A38 which provides a largely dual carriageway link all the way northwards to Exeter where it joins with the national motor way network. The south Cornish coast is a short drive away to the east providing access to the South West Coastal Footpath which connects beautiful sandy beaches with picturesque fishing villages such as Looe which still has an active fishing fleet and where daily fishing trips can be booked from the harbour.
