Full description

Extremely well presented, detached country residence. The property is very spacious with great flexibility and provides an income as there are two letting annexes within the accommodation. Parking as well as four car garage/workshop, stores, small stable and chicken run. The gardens are beautiful with patios and a paddock with a pleasant rural outlook.

The property has a southerly aspect over its gardens and paddock with the main accommodation being on the upper level which gives an enhanced view over the surrounding countryside with the property formerly part of the nearby Trengrove House in addition to which there are just a handful of nearby properties that form Trengrove which is surrounded by fields and just set apart from the hamlet of Merrymeet. Merrymeet is on the A390 road, conveniently within some 2 miles of the south east Cornish town of Liskeard, which apart from the normal facilities also has mainline station and is alongside the A38 trunk road. From Merrymeet the A390, to the east, connects to the town of Callington which is some 7 miles, whilst the city of Plymouth which is the major retail centre for the area is some 21 miles away where there is also a cross channel ferry service.

The property has adequate parking for the accommodation, separate external access to the letting units and most attractive mature gardens and paddock lying on the south side of the property. The size and layout of the accommodation gives it great flexibility and could easily accommodate two families living under one roof, home with superb granny annex as well as an income unit or various permutations. The property is well presented both inside and out and is a credit to the present owners and viewing is highly recommended.
