Full description

Beautifully presented accommodation with two/three reception rooms, three/four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Historic former station and station masters house. Superb views over the Tamar Valley. Landscaped gardens with ponds. Fantastic triple garage and workshop with annex potential. Parking for several vehicles. Grazing areas with field shelter. Leisure facilities with swimming pool, sauna and spa bath. Approximately 2.5 acres in all.

Old Luckett Station is a unique property being the type of historic home that rarely comes onto the market. The superbly presented house in approximately 2.5 acres is private having stunning panoramic views over the countryside and yet is only three miles to the nearest town which is Callington. In a recent survey (November 2016) Callington was voted the third most desirable town to live in the United Kingdom.

Plymouth being some 17 miles to the south either by road or from the branch line station at Gunnislake which is some 3 miles away. Senior schooling is in Callington and there are several leisure facilities in the area including the golf and country club at St Mellion which is approximately 5 miles away.

The house itself is presented beautifully and has been stylishly updated in recent years having two/three reception rooms (including impressive 33’ living room), three/four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

On the opposite platform from the dwelling, the former ticket office has been tastefully rebuilt and is now used as a leisure complex with heated swimming pool, spa bath, sauna and shower facilities.

Incorporated in the 2.5 acres are pony paddocks, field shelter, various attractive garden areas with ponds, seating areas with stunning views, two workshops, triple garage plus workshop with conversion potential and a studio offering ancillary accommodation.

Luckett Station on the old Southern Line was one of the stations along the East Cornwall Mineral Railway transporting both merchandise and passengers. With the decrease in usage of rural railways in the second half of the twentieth century, the viability of the line diminished and it was proposed for closure. They only retained the line from Plymouth to Gunnislake via Bere Alston and Calstock. The short section of the original East Cornwall Mineral Railway approaching Gunnislake is therefore still in regular passenger operation. The other stations including Luckett Station closed on 5 November 1966.
