Situation - The property lies on the fringes of the parish of St Giles on the Heath which has at its centre a Post Office/general store catering for day to day needs, small public house, well respected primary school and thriving village spirit. The property lies less than three and a half miles from the former market town of Launceston, known as The gateway to Cornwall with its 24 hour supermarket, wide range of shops, doctors, dentist and veterinary surgeries, together with places of worship, fully equipped leisure centre, two testing 18-hole golf courses and access to the vital A30 trunk road, which links the cathedral cities of Truro and Exeter. The coastal resort of Bude is some sixteen miles to the North with extensive sandy beaches and cliff top walks and provides access to the A39, the Atlantic Highway, to explore the majestic North Cornish coast. To the east there are views of the fabulous Dartmoor national park with its excellent range of outdoor leisure facilities available.

Description - The property is detached and can be found in good decorative order throughout. The property has been the cherished home of the vendor for the last 14 years and provides a spacious family home with extensive views and no near neighbours. The property is a Cornish unit of non-traditional construction with external oil fired boiler providing central heating and double glazing throughout. The bright and airy accommodation is clearly illustrated in the floorplan overleaf and briefly comprises a most comfortable kitchen/breakfast room with a range of base and eye level units, lounge/dining room with slate fireplace, cloakroom, family bathroom, 4 bedrooms and a large boarded loft which provides undoubted potential for conversion subject to gaining the necessary planning permission and/or building regulations.


Outside - Access is via double wrought iron gates onto gravelled driveway providing parking for several vehicles. Gardens are laid mainly to lawn to the front and side of the property with well defined hedge and fence boundaries providing both peace and privacy. A wide range of mature shrubs and specimen trees provide colour throughout the year. There is a most impressive backdrop of views over farmland to Dartmoor beyond. Fenced former vegetable garden.
