Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Goblins Green was previously two cottages and is one of the most individual and substantial homes in the small and popular village of Langore situated within three miles of Launceston town. It has been the home of our clients for over 43 years. During this time they have lovingly maintained it and completed a significant two storey extension to create what is today a large family home. Dating back to at least 1840 it is predominately of stone construction and has a wealth of character throughout. Principle rooms include the large lounge/dining room which extends to over 28 feet (8.53m) in length and has a feature stone fireplace at either end with clome oven recesses. The room also has many wall light points, a parquet floor and direct access to the garden. There is also a separate sitting room which is used more regularly having a brick feature fireplace with inset multi fuel burner. The kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy with a range of integrated appliances to include an electric oven and hob and refrigerator. A free standing dishwasher and washing machine are also included. A sun room is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the outlook over the gardens.

On the first floor the attractive and spacious landing has a feature granite window and leads off to all four bedrooms and the family bathroom/WC. The master bedroom suite has a lovely bay window with a stunning view and an en-suite shower room/WC.

Goblins Green has plenty of storage cupboards throughout, solid oak external doors and stripped pine internal latched doors. Many modern comforts including mains gas fired central heating and UPVC double glazed windows are enjoyed and add to the efficiency. Our clients inform us that all curtains and all fitted carpets will remain as part of the sale.

The property is approached via a private lane which serves the gravelled sweeping driveway which has plenty of off road parking. A single garage has power and light. The gardens are a major feature of the home and are beautifully manicured and developed by the owners over the 40 years in residence. Offering privacy, shelter and well defined borders (with all boundaries owned), they offer escapism in a tranquil habitat in which a number of bird species call home. There are many features of the grounds including a prominent weeping willow tree, along with a rowan tree and fruit trees such as crab apple and pear. A feature rose garden looks stunning along with various shrubs bushes and perennials including rhododendrons, camellias and azaleas and a welcome display of snowdrops, daffodils and bluebells in the springtime. There is a feature pond and many places to rest your legs, enjoy a drink and eat outside during the warmer months. Outbuildings are in the form of a large potting shed, small stone barn and a stone covered seating area, a favourite for watching the sun go down! A private gate links the foot of the garden to the road in the centre of the village.

The village of Langore is approximately three miles from Launceston town, which boasts a range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities including an 18 hole Golf Course at St Stephens approximately two miles away. The town itself 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. Further comprehensive amenities can be found in the Continental Ferry Port and City of Plymouth and the Cathedral City of Exeter.
From Launceston Town Centre proceed down the A388 (St. Thomas Road). Proceed straight ahead up St. Stephens Hill at Newport and upon entering St Stephens take the left hand turning towards Langore and Egloskerry. Proceed along this road taking the second right hand turning for Langore continuing down the hill into the village. Turn right into Menheniot Crescent and then immediately left along the private lane which at the end the property will be found.
