Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fine substantial and highly versatile detached residence has been heavily extended over the years and today is well worthy of an internal viewing. Our clients have lived in the cottage for around 12 years and made many improvements to the home and have kept the gardens up to an exceptional standard which is a credit to them.

Internally, the original part which is believed to date back to the 19th century has a wealth of character with beamed ceilings, window seats and in the lounge/dining room there is a lovely open stone fireplace with wooden lintel. The highly flexible accommodation also includes a fitted dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room with many integrated appliances including an electric oven with gas hob and extractor fan above. The main sitting room, has lovely parquet flooring and double doors opening out onto the delightful rear gardens and forms part of a substantial two storey extension. The extension was added to the property back in the 1970's, at this point the property was also significantly improved with the building re-roofed and another smaller single storey extension consisting of a utility room and WC added which concludes the ground floor.

On the first floor are the 4 bedrooms all of which are large enough to accommodate a double bed. The master bedroom suite has a walk in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room/WC. This room has a stunning view over the rear garden towards the surrounding countryside. The family bathroom has a shower attachment over the panelled bath. Trekenner cottage has many modern comforts such as mains gas fired central heating and all of the external windows bar the rear porch are UPVC double glazed.

One of the main features of the home are the well enclosed private and mature gardens which surround most of the cottage. There are plenty of places to sit and enjoy the sunshine and dine out during the warmer months. There are two ponds one with a water feature and large lawns. At the foot of the garden is a productive area which has been well designed consisting of an enclosed veg plot and a caged polytunnel. An orchard has many fruit trees and there are specimen trees and conifers and shrubs which include rhododendrons, azaleas, crocosmia and hydrangeas. A potting shed and machinery store are well used and a larger than average garage is found along with the driveway providing off road parking.

Trekenner Cottage is situated in the village of Trekenner which has a County Primary School. The nearby village of Treburley has a well-respected Public House/ restaurant and Garage. Treburley is approximately 5 miles from Callington. Plymouth with its International Ferry Port and wide range of commercial, educational and recreational facilities lies approximately 45 minutes' drive away. The main A30 trunk road to Exeter and beyond is approximately 5 miles distant at the larger town of Launceston which has an extensive range of shopping, schooling leisure and recreational facilities.
From Launceston Town Centre proceed along the A388 towards Callington. After approximately 4 miles take the right turning signposted Lezant/Trebullett. Proceed along this road and take the first left turn and continue up the hill until reaching the staggered junction in Trekenner. Turn left and immediately right and proceed for a short distance where Trekenner Cottage will be found on the right hand side.
