LOCATION
Set in an idyllic location with no near neighbours, Folly Cottage enjoys wonderful views across the open countryside of the Fowey river valley and the river itself is only a short walk away.

The village of Dobwalls is approximately 1.5 miles away which has a shop, post office, primary school and public house. The larger town of Liskeard and its wide range of amenities are approximately four miles away. Liskeard also has a main line railway station giving access to London Paddington.

THE PROPERTY
The house retains much period charm and has been updated by the current owners. There is oil fired central heating and double glazed windows throughout and the kitchen and bathrooms have been finished to a high standard.

THE ACCOMMODATION
The property is entered through a stable door from the entrance porch into the lovely kitchen/breakfast room. This has been refitted with custom made white oak effect floor cabinets with wood block work surfaces over which incorporates a Belfast sink with mixer taps. There is an eye level double oven with microwave over, electric induction hob and plumbing and space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer. The oil fired Sandyford Rayburn heats the hot water and radiators and can also be used for cooking. At the far end of the kitchen is the breakfast area which has dual aspect windows.

Off the breakfast area is the lounge which has a fireplace with inset woodburner and Clome oven to the side and windows to the front elevation. A door then leads through to the separate dining room which also has a fireplace with inset woodburner and Clome oven and there are stairs to the first floor.

The master bedroom is dual aspect and has built in wardrobes and an original fire surround. The en-suite bathroom has been beautifully refitted with a roll top bath with shower head taps, w.c., wash hand basin and a tiled floor.

There are two further double bedrooms and one single bedroom. Bedroom two has a large step up to a few stairs leading to an attic snug/study space with a velux window and eaves storage.

The family bathroom has also been refitted with a good quality suite comprising a roll top bath with waterfall shower head over, wash hand basin and w.c.

To the front of the property there is a driveway leading to a five bar gate which opens to a parking area in the garden. A footpath leads around to the rear of the house where there is an outside w.c. and a utility room with power and water laid on and a further outbuilding.

The beautiful gardens are private, laid to lawn and mostly bounded by mature hedging and trees to the rear boundary.

Here there are several vegetable beds and a lawn and part of this garden is filled with wild flowers under the tree canopy and a treehouse nestles amongst these trees. At the far end of the garden there is a timber store/garage with double doors on the front and a gate opens to the lane.
