Situation - The property lies in the select rural hamlet of Illand less than 3 miles from the self-contained village of Lewannick with its post office/general store catering for day to day needs, well respected local pub, primary school and thriving village hall. The former market town of Launceston is 5 miles from the property with a wide range of shopping facilities including 24-hour supermarket, doctors, dentists and veterinary surgeries together with places of worship, fully equipped leisure centre and two testing 18-hole golf courses. The property is located between the North and South Cornish coasts, within 2 miles of the vital A30 trunk road which links the Cathedral Cities of Truro and Exeter and allows access to a range of independent and state schools. Exeter provides access to the M5 motorway network, mainline railway station serving London Paddington and international airport.

Description - The property is a stunning example of a stone and slate period farmhouse, which has been the subject of considerable expenditure and improvement. The property offers a wealth of character features including exposed stone walls and beams, inglenook fireplace and flagstone slate floor. Modern conveniences include oil fired central heating and superfast broadband.

Accommodation - The accommodation is clearly illustrated on the floorplan overleaf and briefly comprises an entrance hallway and study with flagstone slate floor, living room with inglenook fireplace with woodburner set on slate hearth and sitting room with exposed ceiling beams and woodburning stove. There is a rear boot room and entrance porch, cloakroom and utility room with exposed wood work surfaces with underset Belfast sink and space and plumbing for appliances. The triple aspect, farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room is a later addition and comprises a range of base Shaker style units with slate and granite work tops and inset double Belfast sink with drainer, integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher, fireplace recess with oil fired Aga and double doors opening to the patio.
The first floor offers five bedrooms and two contemporary family bathrooms.

Outside - The property is approached via the country lane to an extensive driveway providing off-road parking for vehicles and access to the STUDIO, currently divided into two, with light, power and broadband connected. To the front of the property is an attractive walled garden. To the side is a patio and WORKSHOP 6.4m x 4.8m (21' x 15'9") with power and light connected. The side garden is mainly laid to lawn, with vegetable garden comprising raised beds and greenhouse. There is a SMALL DETACHED STONE AND SLATE FORMER OUTHOUSE. The grounds continue to a pasture paddock, landscaped sports pitch, orchard, chicken run, TIMBER SHEDS and two DETACHED STABLES, with power and light connected.

Detached Two Storey Barn - The barn is of stone construction beneath a slate roof and has undoubted potential for conversion, subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents. 13.72m x 4.17m (45' x 13'8" (internal measurements). The barn is currently used as a hobbies room with a pair of staircases rising to two timber mezzanine levels.
