SITUATION Situated in the parish of Virginstow outside of the village itself and set in the beautiful north west Devon countryside on the Cornwall/Devon border, enjoying fantastic views across its own land.

The village of Virginstow is extremely small and boasts the Church of St. Bridget The Virgin which is sited on a ridge with commanding views over Cornwall. Only the font now remains of the 12th Century Church which was entirely rebuilt in 1851. A short distance from the property is the popular Percys Country Hotel which is both a hotel and restaurant. Virginstow is 5 miles north of Lifton and 6.5 miles north, north-east of Launceston. Primary schools are available within the villages of St.Giles on the Heath and Lifton. The nearest village is Ashwater which has a post office/general store and a very popular public house. The property is 10 minutes drive from the A30 dual carriageway.

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.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links being approximately 29 miles from Launceston. The city of Exeter has rail links and an international airport being approximately 40 miles from Launceston. 

DESCRIPTION "Location, location, location" - and what a location! Oakcroft has no immediate neighbours and has its land completely surrounding it. The main feature of the property, other than the stunning kitchen, is the fact that it is heated via a ground source heat pump meaning extremely low running costs as the property is super insulated and the current vendor runs the property at a constant 22 degrees. With accommodation comprising: entrance, sitting room, dining room, cloakroom/WC, shower room, utility room and a wonderful kitchen with quality wooden units and a number of high quality appliances, along with a stunning matching dresser. On the first floor, the master bedroom has a generous ensuite shower room, the guest room/bedroom two also has an ensuite shower room, there are two further double bedrooms and a wonderful family bathroom. Outside, there is a large block of outbuildings that are predominantly block built with three phase electricity and the paddocks are stock-proof fenced. The property is currently set up as an equestrian property with approximately 4.25 acres. Although the location is extremely rural, easy access can be gleaned to the A30, the village of Lifton with its abundance of amenities, as well as St Giles-on-the-Heath, with Launceston town being less than 20 minutes' drive away.
