Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situated with outstanding far reaching views over the village of North Tamerton and the Tamar Valley Webbers Fine and Country are thrilled to being to the market two substantial detached residences. Consisting of Tamar View House which is an elegant period three bedroom residence and an adjacent detached three/four bedroom character cottage. They both have an extensive range of outbuildings with commercial opportunities, formal gardens and paddock in all extending to some 1.15 acres.

Tamar View House is a particularly elegant and significantly improved period residence having a wealth of original features throughout and has been extensively improved by our clients over the past five years or so. Including the further detached character three to four bedroom cottage known as Tamar View Cottage, the whole set up will be perfect for those looking for multi-generational family living or looking to derive a valuable income. There is an extensive selection of outbuildings and stores which all have a wealth of opportunity for commercial or business usage (subject to consents).

TAMAR VIEW HOUSE
This impressive period residence dates back to the Victorian era and has a wealth of original features including an attractive front porch and hallway with a tiled floor. There are two reception rooms including a dual aspect lounge with stone fireplace and the formal dining room having a feature fireplace with a tiled inset and slate hearth. The kitchen/dining room is large enough to house a standard table and has an oil fired Aga with a fully fitted painted kitchen with display cabinets and has access to the side porch, boot room, ground floor cloakroom/WC and utility room.

On the first floor there are three large light and airy double bedrooms, including the stunning master bedroom which is dual aspect with a dressing area. The well-equipped family bathroom/WC has been updated in recent years.

The property has sealed unit wooden external windows and warmth which is generated by oil fired central heating. The residence is ready for immediate occupation and presented in good decorative order. Tamar View House has an outside store room as well as a useful office/hobbies room with power and light. Much of the accommodation has stripped floorboards, picture rails and other typical Victorian features.

TAMAR VIEW COTTAGE
The cottage has undergone extensive improvements in recent years to include replacing the roof and installing many UPVC double glazed windows. This detached three to four bedroom cottage has split level accommodation including a light and airy kitchen/breakfast room which is a good size with a range of fitted units and an electric cooker included in the sale. It has access via UPVC double opening doors out to the private gardens. From here steps ascend down to the formal dining room which like most of the property is typical of its age with beamed ceilings, exposed woodwork, latched doors and window seats. In addition to the formal dining room the lounge is a most pleasant room with two windows and a feature fire surround with wooden mantle, stone hearth and inset a wood burning stove and feature clome oven. Concluding the ground floor there is the fourth bedroom which has an en-suite shower room/WC and fitted wardrobe.

On the first floor there is a good size landing providing access to all rooms including the master bedroom which like bedroom two is large enough to accommodate a double bed and has built-in wardrobes. The third bedroom is a single room and like the others shares use of the family bathroom/WC.

The property is finished in neutral decor, has mostly UPVC double glazed windows and warmth is provided by oil fired central heating. Due to its character and charm and accessibility for inland and coastal locations on the east Cornwall/west Devon border, the cottage has in the past been used as a holiday let. It has its own private garden which has been significantly developed in recent years to include a split level decked seating area, patio and garden shed. There is separate off road parking for the cottage.

GROUNDS
The plot is made up of an initial large gravelled parking/turning area, formal garden and garage. The house has its own extensive garden which consists of an open plan lawn area well stocked with a variety of shrubs, bushes and specimen trees including an orchard area and greenhouse. Well enclosed and private the grounds extend to a more productive cultivated vegetable area and through to the paddock where there is a feature pond and a splendid outlook encapsulating the Tamar Valley and North Tamerton with the Parish Church standing proudly on the landscape. The paddock has entirely natural boundaries and there is a chicken run.

OUTBUILDINGS
In addition to the office/hobbies room and garage there are two garden sheds and an extensive selection of more modern outbuildings which we understand were purpose built for food manufacturing with a freezer room. It may be possible for a purchaser to consider running a business from home (subject to consents) or using the buildings to work from home or for hobbies. All in all the set up of Tamar View House and Cottage is an opportunity not to be missed and with its extensive flexibility, character and charm, we would have no hesitation in recommending an early internal inspection.

LOCATION
The town of Holsworthy is approximately 4.5 miles away and holds a market each Wednesday in its characterful square and has a range of small businesses and a Waitrose supermarket. The village of Whitstone lies approximately 5 miles distant with a very good local stores / sub post office and county primary school. The village of Bridgerule is also quite close with a county primary school and general stores. Launceston to the south provides access to the A30 leading to West Cornwall and the international airport at Newquay, and east to Exeter, its international airport and the M5, whilst further to the south lies Plymouth and its international ferry port. The coastal resort of Bude lies approximately 14 miles distant on the rugged North Cornish coast with cliff top walks and sandy beaches. The major North Devon towns of Bideford and Barnstaple lie to the north and are within an hours drive. The property lies approximately 4 miles from the B3254, the road linking Bude to Launceston and although the location is very rural Tamar View House is within 15 miles of 3 major towns with facilities including supermarkets, primary and secondary schools, vets, doctors and medical centres. The closest major hospital is Derriford at Plymouth, or the North Devon hospital at Barnstaple. There is a minor injuries unit at both Stratton and Launceston.
From Launceston proceed north along the B3254 towards Bude. Continue passing through St Stephens, Yeolmbridge and Langdon Cross. Take the right hand turning signposted towards North Tamerton (3 miles) and continue along this un-classified road down into the village. Continue passing the Methodist and Parish Church on the left hand side and at the bottom of the hill continue over the River Tamar. Keep left and as you continue up the hill towards Holsworthy where Tamar View Cottage will be identified on the right hand side with Tamar View House tucked away and less visible from the road.
