Full description

Eagle House is a significant and elegant Grade II* listed Georgian townhouse for sale on the Devon Cornwall border and includes 15 bedroom suites, a conservatory, ballroom, terraces, woodland and lawn. The property leases a small car park next to the Castle. It is mentioned by Pevsner

Eagle House was used as a prison for Napoleonic Naval Officers. It is thought that they are responsible for the French Eagles proudly standing on top of the gate pillars.

The property has recently had planning permission granted to change the planning use from Hotel (C1) back into a single residential dwelling (C3) under Cornwall County Council reference PA15/04616. Although previously used as a hotel, it has retained a vast majority of its original Georgian features including ornate plasterwork, mouldings and fire surrounds. The property enjoys far reaching rural views.

The property is approached directly off Castle Street through ornate wrought iron gates. Steps lead up to the front porch and leads into an impressive stair-cased hallway that has C18 plasterwork. Off the hallway is a small sitting room. To the rear of the hallway is a drawing room and dining room. The drawing room has an impressive and ornate fireplace and bay window. Beyond the drawing room is a conservatory.

Stairs from the hallway lead up to the first floor landing off which are four bedroom suites. On the second floor there are a further four bedrooms suites.

Stairs from the hallway also lead down to the lower ground floor where there are seven bedroom suites, a commercial kitchen, a ballroom/function room and a laundry. French doors lead out onto a lower terrace.

There is a small garden in front of and beside the house and partial woodland behind the house that drops steeply down a bank.
