Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1, Higher Larrick is a proudly positioned and attractive country home which nestles in the heart of this quiet hamlet. It was constructed we believe about 250 years ago, and has a wealth of character throughout. Our clients have resided in the home for 44 years and have made several improvements during this period. The most significant was a substantial extension added at the side of the house in the 1990s.

The following is a quote from the vendors:

"We have loved living here, and leave with regret. It's been a joy to have country walks straight from the door, or on nearby Bodmin Moor, and to visit the spectacular North Cornish coast half an hour's drive away. Our four children had an idyllic childhood here, playing with their friends, making dens on Larrick Common, or rafting down the river! They've all moved away to work now, and we're moving to be near them."

There is an entrance porch and a welcoming reception hall. The lounge has an imposing open granite fireplace with wood lintel, a superb Delabole slate floor and a beamed ceiling. The dining room also has plenty of character, with a slate floor, beamed ceiling and an open fireplace. The dual aspect kitchen was converted from a lean-to building and today has a range of units, a tiled floor, an integrated electric double oven and a calor gas hob with extractor fan over. Moving through, the former kitchen is now a useful long utility room which again has a range of matching units with an attractive mural on the wall. It gives access to the rear porch. Beyond the utility room is bedroom four and the adjacent shower room/wc which has a mains pressure shower unit. This ground floor bedroom is ideal for guests. There are two staircases. The main one gives access to bedrooms one and two. The master bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and a large walk-in cupboard with a deep storage recess. Bedroom three has its own staircase and also has an interconnecting door from bedroom two which could be blocked up if so required. The L-shaped family bathroom/wc has a coloured four piece suite and a built-in airing cupboard. The cottage has oil fired central heating and virtually all the windows are sealed unit double glazed.

One of the key advantages of the property is the detached slate-roofed stone barn. The barn has been partially converted, with two rooms on the first floor used as offices, and storage on the ground floor. This would be perfect for a buyer who would like to work from home or who has a hobby which requires a lot of space. The barn has a courtesy door at the rear, a power supply, water and telephone line. There is also potential (subject to obtaining all required consents) to change the barn into ancillary accommodation or possibly a holiday let which could provide a second income stream.

At the rear of the cottage there is a hard-standing area providing off road parking for one or two vehicles. The well-maintained gardens are established and attractive and feature a variety of shrubs bushes and perennials. There are also some young specimen trees.

A few steps away access can be gained to the paddock which has a separate vehicular access via a sweeping track to a hard-standing area 26'3" x 24'7" (8m x 7.5m) that offers potential for a garage or stabling. This area used to have a mobile home sited on it and there is a foul drainage connection to the septic tank. There are a number of outbuildings in the field including a Nissen hut, a small shed and a workshop with power. There is a fenced-off area used as a vegetable garden, and a small orchard with several fruit bushes and apple trees.

This is a real lifestyle opportunity and we have no hesitation in recommending an early viewing.

LOCATION
The hamlet of Higher Larrick lies deep in the heart of the North Cornish countryside. The village of Trebullett is a mile away, and within a few miles are the villages of South Petherwin, Lezant and Coads Green which afford general amenities. In Lezant parish is a County Primary school, parish Church, Chapel, and the Springer Spaniel public house. The ancient former market town of Launceston is within 5 miles and features a wide range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 trunk road giving access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.

The city of Plymouth is within 24 miles distant offering a wider range of facilities as well as the city of Exeter within 46 miles and Exeter International Airport within 53 miles. Both cities have excellent transport links to other areas of the country.
From Launceston town centre proceed along Western Road to Pennygillam roundabout, taking the third exit towards South Petherwin on the B3254. About a mile beyond South Petherwin turn left at the sign to Trecrogo and Trebullett. About two miles further on towards Trebullett, keep right at the sign: Larrick ¼. No.1 is the first cottage on the right in the hamlet (opposite Barton Larrick).
