SITUATION Situated in the historic heart of the extremely popular West Devon village of Lifton, which boasts the most amenities of any of Launceston's villages, with a Post Office/general store, two hotels, both with public houses and restaurants, doctors' surgery, primary school, the ever popular Lifton Farm Shop/Strawberry Fields which offers local produce and a very popular restaurant, an 'Olde Worlde' petrol station in Tinhay at the end of North Road and a further restaurant. It is a very active community based village with football and cricket teams playing at the local playing fields, a very active Beaver, Cub and Scout unit and both a Methodist Chapel (Liftondown) and Church of England church. There are active groups and societies within the village, including a history group, WI, garden society, book club, art group, Lifton Singers and many other activities. The village website is

Launceston is the ancient capital of Cornwall and boasts a number of historical buildings including the Norman castle and Victorian Guildhall and Town Hall. There is a wide variety of shopping available both in the town centre and the out of town retail park (both independently and nationally owned) together with a range of service businesses, medical facilities and schooling at both primary and secondary levels (private and state sector). The town has a good sports centre, many clubs and societies catering for a wide variety of interests and two 18 hole golf courses within 3 miles.

Access to Plymouth, Exeter, Truro via road are all within an hour's travelling time. The city of Plymouth offers sea and rail links being approximately 29 miles from Launceston. The city of Exeter has rail links and an international airport being approximately 40 miles from Launceston. 

DESCRIPTION Town Farm is an end-of-terrace, four bedroom period cottage in need of renovation and having the benefit of uPVC double-glazing. Works required would include total re-decoration, new kitchen/bathroom suites, re-wiring and a new heating system. Also included is a barn conversion which is surprisingly spacious and, although only one bedroom, is of a good size. Again, it is in need of renovation with structural works required. Adjoining this is a good size garden with potential for a building plot, subject to planning permission. With plenty of off-road parking, this property has great scope as a two or three generational property, with brilliant development potential. Both structures are, we believe, part cob built and due to the amount of cracking, we would suggest that professional advice is sought from a builder/surveyor etc., to ascertain the level of work that is required to bring the properties' structures back up together. We understand that Kencott, in particular, has one defective wall that is in need of definite repair or rebuild, but general works are required throughout the properties and whoever expresses an interest in them would need to view these properties with their eyes wide open. It is our opinion that the rear lawn of the property is a potential building plot and architect's advice should be sought if someone wanted to pursue this line of enquiry. The property is offered with vacant possession.

AGENTS NOTE Both structures are, we believe, part cob built and many of the problems related to the properties are down to cement based materials having been used in the past. As cob needs to breathe and flex, neither of which cement based products allow, we would suggest that professional advice is sought from a builder/surveyor etc., to ascertain the level of work that is required to bring the properties' structures back up together. 

SERVICES Mains water, electricity and mains drainage.
