Full description

A most impressive country residential smallholding with no near neighbours, ideal for those seeking peace and seclusion. 4 Bedroom house, 3 reception rooms, 2 bedroom holiday cottage, gardens, swimming pool, vacant possession. 11 Acres (4.4 Ha or thereabouts)


In a peaceful yet accessible rural backwater with no close neighbours, approached from a quiet parish road over a private driveway of some 150 yards. Being secluded but not isolated, it finds itself 1.5 miles from the small moorland village of St Cleer with its pub, post office and places of worship. The market town of Liskeard is 5 miles away where one can find a variety of shops, a supermarket out of town stores, educational facilities to A Level standard together with doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries. There is a main line rail station with services to Plymouth and Exeter, culminating at London Paddington. Also a branch line meanders through a picturesque river valley to the port of Looe on the south Cornish coast. Other coastal beauty spots such as Polperro and the Bodinnick Ferry to Fowey are within 20 miles. Access to the A30 dual carriageway to the north and the A38 to the south are both within 8 miles.
