Property description


Taking its name from the Swiss resort which has panoramic views overlooking Lake Lucerne, the property enjoys a most enviable position set back from one of Launceston's most prominent roads, yet within a level walking distance of the town and local amenities. The individual Architect designed house is set within approximately one acre of secluded, private gardens. The house is set in a prominent position within the grounds, adding to its feeling of space, great seasonal colour is provided by the impressive array of mature Acer trees, magnolias and camellias. The orchard and rear garden draw a vast amount of wildlife.

But the jewel in the crown of the property is its stunning, unimpeded views overlooking Dartmoor and the Tamar valley. On entering the house there is a spacious welcoming hallway set over two levels, which leads to the generous living room with feature fireplace and wood burning stove. A bay window seat offers wonderful views which includes the famous Brentor Church. Sliding doors open to the dining room with its own fireplace and picture window of Dartmoor. The dining room and lower hall lead to a spacious kitchen with a breakfast bar and extensive work surfaces. The kitchen leads to a useful utility room, with a back door to the sheltered outside enclosed space. There are two large store rooms and a gardeners W.C. Access to the front and rear gardens are through their own gates.

Adjacent to the house are several landscaped features, adjoining the living room through patio doors is a small sunny south facing patio, adjoining the kitchen is a larger patio with views towards the front garden. To the North side is a substantial lawned area with a built in gazebo and patio for table and chairs. A path leads past the Acer woodland with its bespoke summerhouse, to the Orchard which contains a garden shed for storage and its own summerhouse.

On the first floor all 3 bedrooms have views over the Tamar Valley and Dartmoor. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom is dual aspect. Off the spacious and airy landing area is the family bathroom with luxury built in shower cubicle.

Launceston is an ancient town steeped in history with the imposing Launceston Castle overlooking the town and surrounding area. Referred to as 'the gateway to Cornwall' Launceston is centred one mile (1.6 km) West of the River Tamar, which constitutes almost the entire border between the Cornish peninsular and Devon, the A30 is ideally located on the fringe of Launceston connecting to the rest of Cornwall with great access to the beautiful coastline whilst providing great access to Plymouth and Exeter and beyond. The town itself offers a variety of individual businesses from boutiques to fine food shops, blending with occasional national outlets including Tesco, WH Smith and Costa coffee. Local facilities include a leisure centre, medical facilities and well regarded primary and secondary schooling.
