Tenure: Freehold

This most attractive character residence stands in the heart of this small hamlet amongst beautifully manicured grounds. The principle residence has well-appointed and highly flexible accommodation of two bedrooms with large reception rooms enjoying stunning outlooks over the gardens and banks of the Lynher River. Perfect for multi-generational families the property has the added benefit of a single storey self-contained one bedroom annexe which was exclusively designed by our clients for an elderly relative. Suiting someone with hobbies or looking to work from home the multi room outbuilding has a whole host of potential uses as it has an office, WC and workshop and utility area. The whole setting has to be seen to be appreciated and is really something special with a woodland meadow spanning what is some 300 yards of riverbank with access fishing rights on the river. A true lifestyle opportunity living in this thriving community Chyberrio is a property which demands an early internal inspection.

Chyberrio was converted back in 1979 from a selection of outbuildings and has a history of being both a comfortable home and prior a holiday let. To this day there are the gratifying comments of many holiday makers who have loved their short stay in this beautiful location in the past. Our clients moved in to the property in 2007 having bought it in 2006 and have used it as their home since, having made a number of significant and substantial improvements to the residence whilst ensuring its character and integrity. Today it offers comfortable and character accommodation which would suit a wide range of buyers and those who wish to enjoy being part of the strong community.

Beyond the stone exterior lies the character accommodation which is presented in excellent decorative order and is served by a porch which opens into the welcoming reception hallway. A few steps lead down into the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is equipped with a wide range of matching wall and base wood fronted cupboards with roll top granite effect work surfaces. Included in the sale is an electric double oven, a Calor gas hob, extractor, a free standing slim line dishwasher and an under counter fridge. The kitchen like a lot of the ground floor has engineered oak flooring. Moving through, the formal dining room, like most of the rooms has exposed beams and has an attractive stone fire surround with a multi fuel burner, as well as room for a good sized table. It has access via a sliding patio door into the UPVC double glazed conservatory which has a breath taking view over the gardens, river and meadowland beyond and access into the gardens. Stepping out from the conservatory is a crazy paved seating area which is ideal for alfresco dining during the warmer months. The main reception room is unorthodox in shape but designed perfectly to once again encapsulate the views over the grounds. The main focal point is a striking fireplace added a few years ago which is sympathetic with a stone hearth and wooden mantle, inset is a multi-fuel burner providing a warm atmosphere. The lounge has light assisted from a roof window and further traditional window openings split by attractive vertical granite struts.

There are two bedrooms one of which is on the ground floor and has an extensive range of built in wardrobes and cupboards and is dual aspect. Adjacent is a modern shower room/WC which is fully tiled with a mains shower unit. Completing the ground floor are two useful built-in storage cupboards, one of which is under stairs. On the first floor the main bedroom has an impressive vaulted ceiling and a further fitted wardrobe. The main family bathroom on the first floor has two windows and is partly tiled with a shower unit over the panelled bath. Chyberrio is highly flexible, has attractive latched internal doors, UPVC double glazing and warmth which is generated by oil fired central heating. It has the added benefit of a 4 KW photo voltaic solar panel system which runs on the feed in tariff which generates an average income of £800 per year plus providing free electricity during periods of sunshine. This has approximately 19 years to go and the relative income will stay with the successive owner.

Externally, as previously mentioned our clients designed and converted a former outbuilding into what is today a very comfortable and attractive single storey self-contained one bedroom annexe, which was ear marked for a dependant relative with mobility difficulties. The use on the annexe at this time is purely ancillary to the main residence but it may be possible (subject to consents) to use for generating income by way of either a holiday or long term let. The accommodation within the annexe includes an open plan lounge/kitchen/dining room with fitted kitchen having a built-in electric oven and hob with a further free standing fridge included in the sale. There is a double bedroom and a shower room with a further useful utility area.

A further key element of Chyberrio is the large detached timber building which has many rooms within including, two storage rooms, a workshop, office, utility room and a cloakroom. It has storage within the attic and has been used for many hobbies. There is no doubt that a buyer with similar interests would find this of use and it could be perfect for those who require space to work from home which is separate from the main house. The outbuilding has power, light, water and drainage connected.

Chyberrio is approached from the road by a private driveway which is owned by the property. Double gates open into the tarmac and gravelled driveway which provides off road parking for several cars as well as a designated hard standing area for a caravan. There is plenty of outside lighting and a useful wooden log store and a generous single garage. The attractive gardens are a credit to the owners and are colourful with many places to sit and enjoy the pleasant outlooks with the river providing the perfect soundtrack. The grounds are mainly lawned with a wide variety of flower beds and shrub borders, well stocked with bushes, conifers and perennials. A good quality summerhouse is strategically positioned to capture the evening sunshine and it has solar lighting. Young specimen trees also feature along with a selection of granite posts providing what is affectionately known as a mini "Stonehenge"! There are a variety of wood sculptures created by the former owner of the property, who was a renowned sculpture with a real eye for detail. The grounds also have apple trees and a number of soft fruits such as currents and raspberries. A small water course that runs all year round meanders its way through part of the garden with a feature rustic stone footbridge over it. An above ground swimming pool measuring 18ft x 9ft (5.49m x 2.74m) is tucked away, enclosed under a dome roof and is heated through an air source heat pump and complemented by solar panels. Adjacent to this is a utility shed and a productive area of garden with raised beds for vegetables. For the keen gardener a potting shed with mature grape vine which produces a good crop will be found along with a poly tunnel. The remaining area of land is a large meadow with a woodland area which is a great sheltered habitat and a real oasis. Our clients have seen a wide variety of wildlife including Otters, Deer and Heron to name but a few. The river which is a major tributary of the Tamar is in its middle course and has species such as Brown Trout and Sea Trout as well as Salmon. The river bank is easily accessible and there are rights to fish along some 300 yards of River. The nearby ancient Berrio Bridge is highly visible from the garden.
