Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Located within a delightful rural setting with direct frontage to the River Fowey and set within a plot in excess of an acre, this detached three bedroom former school house has been tastefully converted to provide an excellent standard of accommodation, whilst maintaining many of the character features associated with such a wonderful building. Such features include the multi paned sash windows, exposed former fireplace within the sitting room, delightful exposed beams within the study, intricately designed with dual cross members and king posts linked by cross bracings. The kitchen, sitting room and hallway all benefit from oak flooring with further stripped wood floors in the bedrooms. There is additional oak detailing throughout the property, with the sitting room housing a fireplace with multi fuel stove, in addition to the former feature fireplace, and bespoke oak staircase. The kitchen includes a Rayburn, is fitted with solid wood block working surfaces, and in turn leads to the utility room via the adjoining lobby. Externally there is a large double garage/workshop with inspection pit, lean to storage shelter and summer house with decked veranda, overlooking the three ornamental ponds, and towards the river. The gardens have in majority been laid to lawn and run alongside the river for nearly a hundred metres, incorporating a wooded copse which continues until the edge of the boundary and an additional shaded seating area. A viewing is recommended at the earliest possible opportunity in order to appreciate the advantages of this beautifully presented home, set within such an idyllic location and is in close proximity to Golitha Falls and Sibly Back Lake, which is surrounded by the Bodmin Moor and offers a wide range of activities beside or on the water. Additionally the property is within 3 miles of The Standing Stones at Minions and St. Cleer Village and is within 5 miles of the main shopping town of Liskeard.
