Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Thornbank was built in the early 1970's by a popular local builder of the time for himself and his family to live in, so offers a few little extras which include a large under house storage area which has power to it and a large window by the stairs that helps to make this detached property a light and airy home.

The present owners have enjoyed living there over the last thirty years but are now keen to down size from this family house. They have made many improvements which include UPVC windows and doors and in more recent times the addition of a conservatory to the rear elevation which can be accessed via the separate dining room on the lower ground floor. They have also converted the original integral garage into a bedroom which boasts both access to a shared shower room and direct access to the drive outside making a perfect area for a dependent relative. This area of the house has a separate door enabling discrete access without disturbing the rest of the household making it ideal for paying guests if required. There is extra storage in the room provided by a mezzanine gallery above the bed. The spacious lounge on the lower ground floor is very light due to the large double glazed sliding doors providing a view over the established garden. The kitchen is also on this level and has a vast array of oak fronted units which are both floor and wall mounted with space and plumbing left for a dishwasher and washing machine. A gas hob and double eye level oven are also included in the sale. The next floor above, level with the main entrance door, is the light, bright and welcoming entrance hall and landing allowing access to bedroom four which benefits from a fitted wardrobe, and the shared tiled shower room with a built in cupboard and a door into bedroom three.

A further flight of stairs raise to the top level leading to both the large double bedrooms which both have large hand basins, fitted with wardrobes and have far reaching views over and above the popular residential area beyond. The last room on this level is the family bathroom which has a large white corner bath with shower over and matching hand basin and WC. The heat for the home is generated by a gas fired hot air system and windows are UPVC double glazed throughout.

Outside there is access to all sides of the property via gravelled paths and a tarmac drive providing off road parking for three vehicles at the front. The private rear garden is enclosed by timber fencing and mature trees with a gravelled and paved sun patio.

This property is situated within a popular established residential area just outside the town close to a bus route and schools along with the town facilities. It would suit buyers looking for a convenient family home.

Launceston town centre boasts a 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. Closer to hand there are day to day shopping facilities found at the nearby Texaco Garage in Western Road.
From Launceston Town Centre proceed along the A388 (Western Road) and take the first turning on the right hand side continuing down the hill and take the second left hand turn into Meadowside. Proceed up the hill following the road around taking the first right hand turn into Highfield Park Road. Thornbank will be identified as one of the first few properties on the right hand side.
