Stanningfield was built in 1905 and is a fine example of an Edwardian 'Arts & Craft' style family house. The property has been refurbished by the current owners in recent years but maintains a wealth of the period features typical of the era. High ceilings with ornate cornicing, fireplaces, flooring and leaded glass windows are found throughout the house. The accommodation is bright and spacious with large windows to the front of the house making the most of the views over the river and countryside.

The ground floor comprises of a welcoming entrance hall with the main staircase and wood burning stove. To the right is an office/snug and to the left the main living areas. The sitting room has French doors out to a paved terrace, wooden flooring and an ornate fireplace with Art Deco style tiles and a beaten copper panel. The dining room is a particularly beautiful room with a large bay window and window seat enjoying the views, a full height inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and additional seating and an open plan kitchen to the rear. The kitchen has fitted wooden units, integrated dishwasher and fridges and a Falcon range with a gas hob. A utility room, with a separate cloakroom, sits off the kitchen and provides rear door access to the workshop, garage and parking area.

Upstairs off the half landing is bedroom four and a family shower room. On the first floor are the three further bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom has a dressing room, ensuite shower and French doors leading out onto a balcony. Two further bedrooms both have washbasins and bedroom two has the potential space for another ensuite if needed.

Stanningfield is set off a quiet no through road overlooking the Tamar, from the River Lynher to the surrounding countryside. The Tamar Valley is renowned for a warm climate and is rich in beauty and history and clearly deserving of its status as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

Saltash is known as the Gateway to Cornwall, as it lies just across the River Tamar from Plymouth and has a wide range of amenities, including a doctor's surgery, post office, primary and secondary schools, high street shops and a Waitrose. A train station provides links to the south and regular services to London on the Penzance to Paddington line. Golf can be found at the nearby St Mellion resort. The Michelin starred restaurant, Langmans, is in nearby Callington.

The historic naval port of Plymouth is 6 miles away and offers extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities including three theatres, Drakes Circus shopping centre, many sporting facilities and a fine university. The Barbican area has retail art galleries, numerous bars and eating places including the Barbican Kitchen and River Cottage Canteen at Royal William Yard. The port has regular cross-Channel ferry services to Brittany and northern Spain.

The A38 provides links to the M5 motorway and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are frequent rail services from Saltash and Plymouth to London Paddington in 3 hours. Newquay Airport offers an ever increasing number of domestic and international flights, including 2 flights a day to London City Airport.

Stanningfield is approached from the street into an enclosed walled drive and parking area for several cars to the rear of the house. There is also a double garage with a workshop attached.

A paved path and a few steps lead down to the main entrance of the house and continue past the house to the gardens and riverside. A paved terrace lies to the front of the house and is a perfect area for 'al fresco' dining and entertaining. Steps lead down to the gardens through a wisteria walkway and to the heated greenhouse and store room under the terrace. The south east facing gardens are set in 0.55 acres and features many seating areas and viewpoints. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and slopes gently down to the river's edge. Surrounded by established trees, palms and shrubs including roses and clematis the gardens are very private and peaceful. Paths meander through the orchard and lead to a summerhouse with decking and electricity making another ideal area for barbeques and entertaining family and friends. Further steps lead to the wooden boatshed, again with power connected, a decking area and riverside access. The land extends out over the fundus and riverbed by 1.32 acres. There is a mooring available by separate negotiation.
