Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This semi-detached property has a most appealing location in this rural setting extending over a quiet country lane ending at Pill Farm, yet is within a short walk of Coulson Park and the River Fowey and also within easy walking distance of the heart of the town beyond. Lostwithiel is renowned for its good range of local shopping, restaurants, public houses and its thriving community spirit. Nearby is Restormel Castle set above the Fowey River Valley and maintained by English Heritage.

The front door opens into the entrance conservatory with a further inner door leading into the reception room which is of good size and has an open beamed ceiling, a staircase at one end leading to the first floor, attractive display shelving and an old fireplace (boarded off) with deep granite hearth.

An internal glazed door then opens into the most attractive kitchen with its range of fitted floor cabinets in Shaker style with laminate worktops and incorporating a stainless steel sink unit, electric cooker, a brushed aluminium ducted extractor hood and space for a refrigerator. A large window has a very pleasant outlook over the rear courtyard and a door leads into the good size utility room with plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine, the oil fired central heating boiler and extensive shelving. A second door from the kitchen leads into the rear court with double glazed UPVC sliding patio door onto the courtyard and also extending then into the extensive areas of storage and workshop which has a second door leading out onto the lane and a further door then leading into the large integral single garage with up and over door.

On the first floor there are three bedrooms, the first to the front being the large principal bedroom with view over the river, a built in wardrobe and having a double glazed door opening onto the large decked balcony area with wonderful outlook over the river. The second double bedroom to the front also has fine views over the river and a built in cupboard and the third bedroom is to the rear and has a most private outlook over the gardens. Off the landing there is a built in airing cupboard with modern hot water storage cylinder and immersion heater and next to this the bathroom with modern suite comprising a panelled bath with glazed shower screen and electric shower fitting, fitted wash hand basin, low level w.c., vertical heated towel rail/radiator and part fully tiled walls.

Radiators are provided to the accommodation from the oil fired central heating boiler.

The gardens are very well screened from the railway line to the rear and its very extensive and mature gardens are quite delightful. The property also has an integral single garage with inspection pit and adjoining this area plenty of further storage and also has a little used but useful drive further along the lane into the garden which could be adapted for further vehicle parking. The gardens have an extensive range of shrubs, lawns and fine screening also from the lane below and has small outbuildings including two aluminium frame greenhouses. There is an additional pedestrian access from the garden alongside the garage without the need to go through the house itself.
From the town centre travelling down Fore Street, with the Co-op just ahead of you, turn right into Quay Street. Follow the street alongside the river and then under the railway bridge into Coulson Park. Continue through Coulson Park and take a turning to the right under the railway bridge and then the first turning to left. Continue along this lane and Pill Cottages will be found on the right hand side.
