Higher Truscott Farmhouse lies just a few miles from Launceston. Believed to date back over 200 years it has much character throughout. Our client acquired the property in 2008 and has made many significant improvements to the well-presented accommodation.

The internal rooms consist of a splendid farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room. The room has a wide range of fitted country style units with solid wood worksurfaces and many integrated appliances including a refrigerator and freezer and oil fired "Heritage" aga style oven which fires both the domestic hot water and central heating systems. The kitchen has a most attractive clome oven recess in the side wall and like many of the rooms has beamed ceilings, wooden lintels and slate floors. The main reception room (the lounge/dining room) is dual aspect and spacious with a lovely feature stone fireplace which dominates the room. Inset is a multi-fuel stove. The dining area also has a fire surround. One of the main additions has been the UPVC double glazed conservatory which offers a pleasant outlook over the rear garden. Concluding the ground floor is a good sized utility room with extensive cupboards and a modern re-fitted shower room /WC which has a double shower tray with electric shower. On the first floor there are four bedrooms all of which have feature fire surrounds of cast iron, slate or stone. A luxurious family bathroom/WC has a claw roll top bath and a high level WC.

The home has many wall lights and ornate period switches, solid wood latched internal doors, with the whole of the first floor having a polished pine floor. External windows are UPVC double glazed.

Externally, Higher Truscott Farmhouse has a block paved driveway accessed by a five bar gate. The beautifully kept and well-manicured gardens are well enclosed and perfect for those with pets or children to consider. They feature many gravelled pathways and flower beds well stocked with a variety of shrubs, bushes, perennials and climbing plants. There are many places suitable for storing pot plants and enjoying the sunshine. A lovely covered outside seating area is perfect for alfresco dining during the warmer months. A large summerhouse is used as an artist's studio and there are further useful sheds as well as outside lighting and a water tap. The gardens are suitable for those who would like a lock up and leave holiday/second home.

Truscott is a quiet rural hamlet located within 3 miles of Launceston lying well above the Kensey Valley which is a haven for dog walkers with its attractive narrow lanes and public footpaths. The seasonally operating Launceston Steam Railway sweeps through this beautiful valley. Close to hand are the nearby villages of Tregadillett and Egloskerry which collectively boast traditional village facilities including a parish church, country primary school, public house/restaurant. For those with angling interests there is coarse fishing available at the Hidden Valley Park. Launceston itself offers 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.
From Launceston Town Centre proceed down the A388 (St Thomas Road). Upon reaching the roundabout at Newport continue straight ahead heading up St. Stephens Hill to St. Stephens. Take the left hand turning signposted towards Egloskerry heading out of the town. Continue along this road for approximately 1 1/2 miles passing the right hand turning for Langore. Take the left hand turning at the crossroads towards Truscott. Proceed into the hamlet of Truscott bearing left at the T junction where Higher Truscott Farmhouse will be identified as one of the very last properties on the left hand side marked with a Webbers For Sale Board.
