Full description

Tenure: Freehold

There has been a residence on this site for almost 100 years and the land has been in the ownership of the same family since the mid 1920's. Back in the late 1980's our clients (who still reside in the residence) demolished the former dwelling and re-erected in its place what is today a superior and substantial landmark property standing proudly in this small hamlet in the Inny Valley.

The internal rooms are spacious, light and airy and particularly flexible and all enjoy a view over the delightful gardens or surrounding rolling farmland. Part of the home which is currently used for storage was where our clients resided temporarily when the main house was being built and no doubt this area could be used as an inter-connecting annexe if the double garage was not required. The grounds are immaculately kept and a real credit to the owners, they offer an abundance of colour and have a good degree of practicality too. We invite you to view this residence at the earliest opportunity and see for yourself the tremendous versatility it offers.

The accommodation is extremely well presented throughout and includes a welcoming reception hall with stairs gently rising to the first floor. Rooms downstairs include a triple aspect lounge with open fireplace and attractive marble surround. The light and airy formal dining room also has access via a sliding door to the rear patio. The spacious billiard room is dual aspect and could make a separate sitting room or study. There are many integrated appliances in the kitchen/dining room which again is light, airy and 'L' shaped. There are a wide range of matching units (wood fronted) and included in the sale is a double electric oven, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Kitchen units continue into the bright dining area which has part glass roof and has an open fire surround. A WC, pantry and bathroom/WC conclude the ground floor of the main residence.

In 1998 a successful planning application provided consent to add a further room to the ground floor area. This room is very large and of an irregular shape and affectionately known as the "run through" room. Over the years its size has assisted with the rest of the rooms as being a valuable area for entertaining with family parties and special events. This room has the advantage of sun tubes to maximise on natural light and has both access to the front and rear gardens and links the important storage rooms and double garage which were formerly separate to the main house. Adjacent to the double garage is a storage room, large laundry room, utility room, bathroom and separate WC. It is suitable for those who have desires to use a ground floor annexe for a dependant relative or for those who wish to have extended family living in a self-contained but nearby environment. The garage area is large enough for two vehicles. The storage room has a staircase ascending to a useful attic area which is boarded.

Back in the main house the spacious first floor landing has access to the six bedrooms. The master bedroom suite like so many of the rooms is light and airy and enjoys an extensive view. This room has a wide range of built-in wardrobes and bedroom furniture and leads into the en-suite family bathroom/WC which has matching sanitary ware including a spa bath and a separate shower cubicle. Bedroom two is also dual aspect and has fitted wardrobes and an en-suite toilet. Bedroom three is also dual aspect and has the advantage of a shower room and glass doors adding extra light. The fourth bedroom has access to the roof terrace (above the run through room) which is fully secure with a non-slip surface and ideal for taking in the outstanding outlook over the rear gardens. It could also be a place, in the warmer months to have a bistro table and enjoy a morning, afternoon or evening drink. Bedrooms five and six, like the rest of the rooms have wash hand basins and could also house a double bed if needed. Completing the first floor is a family bathroom/WC along with a separate shower room and a walk-in airing cupboard.

A full staircase ascends to the second floor where there are three attic rooms built in to the roof space which have good levels of head height, roof windows producing natural light and built-in workspace. This area of the property houses many of the important telecommunications equipment such as the internal telephone exchange (there are almost 20 telephone points within the house) and TV aerials. Dighouse has many modern comforts such as oil fired central heating in the main residence and night storage heating in the garage area and windows and doors are UPVC double glazed. There are many built-in storage cupboards and various forms of lighting and the vendors have confirmed that the blinds and carpets will remain in place for the purchaser.

The external boundary of the property is well defined and is accessed via remote controlled entrance gates from the single lane council adopted road running through the hamlet. The block paved driveway provides off road parking for many vehicles and space for turning. It extends around to the side of the house and on to the rear of the house if needed. There is an extensive range of outside lighting both in the front and rear gardens, along with security cameras which constantly record and link through to a channel on every television in the property. There are also a significant number of power points within the garden.

The gardens extend predominantly to the rear of the property to take advantage of the morning and afternoon sun. They consist of an enclosed paved area which is a real sun trap and the perfect place for outside dining in the warmer months. They feature an ornamental pond with remote control awning over. There is a substantial garden store. A small tributary lines the side of the house and expands up into the garden with a feature bridge with many lawned areas at both sides well stocked with shrubs, bushes and perennials. A level cultivated area of garden has been created with the annual harvesting of good produce. There are a selection of fine specimen trees, fruit trees and natural hedge borders. Paved steps ascend up to the raised area of lawn where there is a well placed summer house, the perfect place for relaxing and looking back at the property and gardens in their full glory. There is also a useful garden shed and at the top of the garden a good range of three block outbuildings, all of which have the advantage of electric, light and water connected. These would be the ideal place for someone wanting to exercise interest in practical hobbies or could also be used for housing stock. At the top of the garden there is a lane which is accessed from the main road and serves the block outbuildings.

The property is situated in the rural hamlet of Beals Mill, which is within the attractive Parish of Stoke Climsland, within 1.5 miles of the village. Stoke Climsland benefits from a thriving community, with amenities in the village including the parish church, post office/general stores, village hall, primary school which is well regarded and a sports field and popular social club. The renowned Duchy College is also located at Stoke Climsland and offers a range of courses from agriculture to outdoor pursuits where students can study for a diploma, apprenticeship or a degree in a subject they enjoy. The larger town of Callington is some 6.5 miles from Beals Mill and caters for most other day to day needs with a senior school with an exceptional report, medical centre, library and a varied shopping centre with a new superstore which has been open for a few years.
