Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This old historic town is renowned for its fine range of antique and curio shops, good restaurants and public houses and an excellent range of local shopping. Being located on the lowest bridging point of the River Fowey with its historic Norman bridge, the town also benefits from a mainline railway station linking Paddington to Penzance with regular stops for the commuter. Close at hand are beautiful country walks including the moors adjoining Coulson Park, an outstanding and protected area for birds and wildlife divided by the meanders of the River Fowey.

The Old Tannery is a fascinating detached home set in a high walled and private garden with vehicle parking yet only a few yards from the heart of the town and Fore Street via Guild Hall Lane. The property was originally owned by the Foster estate and sold by them in 1929.

The property has been substantially refurbished including reroofing in recent years and is provided with gas fired central heating but will benefit from further internal updating to some rooms.

The house is approached through double gates into a parking area and then to the garden and the front of the house. This can also be accessed through a high wall and door, which then leads into a rear and partly covered passageway giving access into the kitchen, stone built workshop and then to the rear hall accessed via the utility room.

First, the kitchen / family room which has a range of Treyone oak floor and wall cabinets incorporating a stainless steel sink unit, 5 ring gas hob with a wide extractor hood over, fitted electric oven and plumbing And space for a dishwasher and water connection for an American style fridge freezer (not included). A wood patio door leads to the rear and a very wide set of folding glazed doors lead into the large conservatory. Like the kitchen the floor is finished with slate effect vinyl and with its sheer scale and good quality construction, this also makes an ideal reception room and is used as a dining room by our clients and looks over and has two doors to the private garden.

From the kitchen an opening leads into the sitting room with a fine slate surround Victorian fireplace and a further door to the hall. The hall has a stable type door from the garden, stairs up and door leading to the second reception room. This also has an open Victorian fireplace .A wide opening leads to the rear hall with floor to ceiling windows and then to the recently refitted high quality shower room with sky light window, full height wall tiles, shower cubicle, basin and w.c. Next is the utility room with Belfast sink and skylight window. The workshop in the rear passageway also houses the gas fired central heating boiler heating radiators in the house.

On the first floor, most if not all rooms are finished with floor boarding and bedroom one is accessed by its own rear landing. This very large room has dual aspect windows. From the main landing doors open to bedroom two, a double room with old slate surround fireplace, bedroom three also a double bedroom with an old fireplace surround and a fitted wardrobe. The bathroom has a roll edge bath with ball and claw feet, a basin, high level w.c. and built in airing cupboard with storage cylinder and immersion heater.

Having high walls and many mature trees including several apple, a walnut tree and trailing vine. An old large store with the remains of a granite staircase (walled off many years ago) that would have led to the neighbouring garden as mentioned above. The garden could do with reducing in the scale of trees but is quite captivating and could be further cleared as was once the case for parking more than one car.

On entering Lostwithiel on the A390 from the south, as you enter the 30mph speed limit, continue down the hill. The Restormel Lodge Hotel will be seen ahead at the bottom of the hill and continue on the main road a few yards to the left after the hotel and take the first turning right into South Street. The property is set in Guildhall lane, the first turning to the left. As this lane is not a through vehicle route and only driven on by those with available parking, in the first instance for viewers we would recommend walking to the property from a car park or side street parking.
