Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1 Hillpark Cottages, we believe, dates back to the late 19th century and has a wealth of character throughout the accommodation. Our clients who have lived in the property for some 27 years have vastly improved the cottage, most noticeably by adding a substantial single storey extension and a new roof in 2015. The comfortable home has outstanding far reaching views over the Kensey Valley and an early internal inspection is highly recommended.

Internally rooms include a welcoming reception porch with utility area and separate WC. The large dual aspect lounge has a feature fire surround with an inset wood burning stove which fires the heating system. Back in 1994 our clients completed a substantial extension at the side of the property which now comprises of the kitchen/dining room. This dual aspect light and airy room has a range of modern fitted kitchen units with wooden fronted cupboards, both wall and base, and has an integrated electric oven, touch screen hob and extractor. There are also relevant spaces for further white goods.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms with the master bedroom suite well kitted out with an extensive range of bedroom furniture to include wardrobes, cupboards, drawers and bedside units. The master bedroom also has the best of the breath-taking views along the Kensey Valley towards Dartmoor National Park. Both bedrooms share use of the family shower room WC which has a corner shower cubicle with electric shower. Virtually all of the external windows have been replaced with UPVC double glazed units.

Externally as the property is located at the end of the terrace it has a good sized garden which is level, consisting of a lawn with attractive raised borders well stocked with a variety of plants and perennials. There is also a hard standing area perfect for outside dining throughout the warmer months well placed to make the most of the far reaching views. A few steps away there is a large gently sloping area of land which is with the property having the opportunity to be used as a formal garden if so required. 1 Hillpark Cottages has an extensive range of outbuildings including a block workshop with power and light, two useful wood stores, a garden shed and a potting shed. Located near to the property there is an area designated for residents parking where a permit can be purchased from Cornwall Council.

The property is situated close to Launceston Town Centre which boasts a comprehensive range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 trunk road giving access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.
