Situation - The property enjoys a quiet location in the centre of the village and is approached from the parish road over a private driveway. The small rural community enjoy places of worship and a primary school. The historic and former market town of Launceston is 6 miles to the southeast and here one can enjoy a wide variety of shops surrounding an attractive town square, together with a choice of supermarkets and out of town stores. There are doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries available together with two thriving light industrial estates. Scholastic facilities within the area include Launceston College up to A-level standard and St Josephs private school with education for boys and girls to GCSE level. There is also access onto the A30 dual carriageway linking the Cathedral Cities of Truro to the west and Exeter and the M5 motorway to the east.
The City of Plymouth at the mouth of the River Tamar on the South Devon/Cornwall coast is approximately 30 miles and here there are excellent communication points with a mainline railway station, airport serving many UK and Irish destinations and cross channel ferry port with regular services to Northern France and Spain. Bude on the North Cornish coast is approximately 12 miles to the northwest and here one can enjoy some of the most picturesque and dramatic coastlines within the country and extensive cliff walks and sandy beaches.

Description - This deceptively spacious detached cottage is understood to date back to the 1800s, constructed of traditional cob and stone under a slate roof, and was once the former Post Office/village store. The accommodation, which offers dual occupancy, is clearly identified on the floorplan overleaf and briefly comprises a hallway with stairs rising to first floor and doors to the sitting room, dining room, annexe and dual aspect sitting room with open fire and dining room with solid fuel Rayburn. The kitchen comprises a range of wall and base units with inset stainless steel sink unit with mixer tap, space for free standing electric oven, fridge/freezer and space and plumbing for washing machine. There are two doors, one to the outside and the second to a family bathroom comprising pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and panel enclosed bath with shower over. The first floor offers four double bedrooms with a cupboard, currently used as storage which, subject to the necessary consents could be turned into a bathroom.
The Annexe offers its own access from the main hallway or from outside and comprises a front door to the dual aspect kitchen/sitting room with laminate flooring comprising a range of wall and base units with stainless steel sink unit, space for electric oven, space and plumbing for washing machine and a door to the bedroom. From the bedroom a door leads to a useful boot room with a further door leading to a shower room with pedestal wash hand basin, low level WC and double shower cubicle housing an electric shower unit. From the boot room there is access to the garden.

Outside - The rear garden is accessed from both the kitchen and the annexe boot room and is predominantly laid to lawn whilst being enclosed by a mixture of fencing and stone walling. There is a mature tree in the centre of the lawn providing shelter and shade and some herbaceous plants and shrubs. The front garden is low maintenance and mainly laid to shingle but could potentially provide further off road parking. There is an attached BARN 4.88m x 6.1m (16' x 20') to the side of the property offering storage or potential to turn into a workshop or studio.

Viewing - Strictly by prior appointment with the vendor's appointed agents, Stags.
