SITUATION The pretty hamlet of Hellescott, well known locally for its pretty bridge that crosses the River Ottery is a short distance outside the village of North Petherwin, which has a primary school, village hall and is approximately four miles northwest of Launceston. The Parish Church is one of the oldest in Cornwall. On the outskirts of the village is the Tamar Otter Park and nearby to the village is The Countryman Inn, which is well known for being family friendly and its good food and beer garden.

Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles. 

DESCRIPTION Described on the 'British Listed Buildings' site as a farmhouse, now private house and gardens walls to front, rendered and painted stone, rubble and cob, partly slate hung on right hand gable end, rag slate roof with gable ends, stone rubble end stack, the left hand slate projecting.

The cottage was listed in January 1989. We believe the property dates back to Tudor times and is presented in wonderful condition. Like so many cottages in the area the traditional front door is now used as the back door and vice versa. A real feature of the entrance hall is the wide stairway that leads to the first floor, with two stunning main reception rooms, galley kitchen, useful utility/cloakroom, study and store room. On the first floor is a split level landing with pretty bathroom and walk in airing cupboard, which houses a modern 'Worcester' central heating boiler, two absolutely stunning double bedrooms and a single bedroom. 

As you drive up the farm track for a very short distance the five bar gate leads to a private driveway, which in turn leads to a large tandem garage. As you walk around to the rear of the property you start to appreciate the substantial gardens, which include a mixture of stunning lawned areas, fantastic flower and shrub beds, mature trees and hedgerows and a copse area leading down to an attractive gulley. We believe the gardens are approximately 0.6 acre. The property is situated gable end onto a quiet country lane.
