Location

East Berriow is located within a delightful rural location set in a gently sloping south facing valley, that eventually feeds down to the River Lynher. The property is protected from the north-west by rising farmland that continues on towards the spectacular Bodmin Moor. There are beautiful southerly views of gently undulating farmland and partly wooded valleys flowing down from the house towards the valley.

The villages of Bathpool, North Hill, Rilla Mill and Upton Cross are all within easy reach and provide a range of local amenities such as primary schools, village stores, public houses, restaurants and places of worship. The larger towns of Liskeard and Launceston provide a good range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities as well as direct access to both the A38 and the A30 dual carriageway which provides fast access to Exeter and the M5.

The property's unrivalled setting is ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits with superb walking, riding and fishing in the area, and both the north and south coasts of Cornwall within striking distance.

Description

HISTORY
East Berriow is steeped in local history, dating back to the 16th century, first built for a high ranking yeoman, and as the first house in North Hill it collected taxes from surrounding villages. Its original detached cider press barn is still intact and the original stables have now been incorporated into the house. It is listed in the book 'The Cornishmans House: An Introduction to the History of Traditional Domestic Architecture in Cornwall'.

THE PROPERTY
East Berriow is a simply stunning property which has been beautifully restored and improved with lots of love and careful thought. The property has a very interesting history and enjoys a Grade II * status. The entrance hall sets the scene with beautiful oak beams and lovely old arch topped doors. The sitting room is truly spectacular with mullioned windows and a beautiful wood burning stove all furnished with gorgeous antiques. The dining room boasts a marvellous open inglenook fireplace complete with a cloam oven. There is a clever link to the barn which houses the charming farmhouse style kitchen. There is a family bathroom that would look at home in the best of spas.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms over the barn, with three further bedrooms in the main part of the house. The exterior of East Berriow compliments the interior being just as attractive. The best angle to view the property is from the lane looking into the courtyard, from which it is stunning in its surroundings. The entrance has plenty of parking leading to the garden. To the side of the garden there is a former barn with huge potential for further development. This leads onto a small paddock and a little copse which was probably at one time a kitchen garden.

Square Footage: 2930 sq ft
