Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Moor villa is an individually designed substantial town residence constructed in 1980 and stands in a convenient location a short distance from the town centre and all amenities. It has well presented accommodation which has been extended over the years and has been lived in by our clients since 1998 comfortably housing three generations of their family in both the 2 double bedroom adjacent bungalow and the recently improved, well-proportioned 1 bedroom two storey annexe. Today this executive house could again suit those needing to accommodate an extensive family or could be suitable for deriving an income through long term letting or bed and breakfast on a full or self-catering basis.

Internally, the main house has a lovely large dual aspect kitchen/dining room which is a sociable space. The fitted kitchen has integrated appliances including an electric oven hob and extractor. The room also houses the gas fired Rayburn which fires both the central heating and domestic hot water systems. The dual aspect lounge like many of the rooms has a stunning view across the Kensey valley via a balcony, feature fireplace and period plastering to include ornate cornicing and ceiling roses which was the trade and profession of our client.

On the first floor accessed off the spacious landing there are four bedrooms with the master bedroom having an extensive range of built in furniture. All rooms share use of the large family bathroom/WC which has a corner bath and separate shower cubicle.

Many years ago a purpose built bungalow was added to provide two bedroom single storey accommodation for a family member with the benefit of two further ground floor storage rooms and a WC with access to the garden. The well presented accommodation includes a lounge and modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances, two bedrooms and a family bathroom/WC. It is completely self-contained and has its own oil fired central heating system.

The annexe has recently been re-decorated and re-carpeted and was also a later addition, being built over two storeys in line with the gradient at the back of the house. Again being self-contained it has well presented and comfortable accommodation including a modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances. It shares the gas central heating from the main house.

Both the annexe and bungalow are rated separately for council tax but could if needed be an integral part of the main residence. The whole of the property has been UPVC double glazed along with the soffits and fascia boards which have also been UPVC clad.

Moor villa has a sweeping driveway with plenty of room to park many cars and turning space. There is a single garage and many outbuildings including a timber gymnasium and large workshop. Stretching the bottom of the main house is a large cellar which has useful storage and is a great place for hobbies and storage etc. There are a further two sheds.

Launceston, the Ancient Capital of and acknowledged gateway to Cornwall sits astride the A30 one mile from the Devon/Cornwall border, in an area of considerable beauty and charm with easy access to both North and South Coasts as well as to the cities of Exeter, Plymouth and Truro. Dating back to Celtic times the whole of Launceston is steeped in history and is dominated by its Castle built by Brian de Bretagne the first Norman Earl of Cornwall in the 11th Century. Once the site of the Royal Mint and the only walled town in Cornwall the Launceston of today has much to offer and to reward both business and leisure interests. There is a town trail for visitors to follow which highlights the ancient architecture and historical features including the 16th Century Church of St. Mary Magdalene which has one of the most lavishly carved exteriors of any Church in England. There are three other churches as well as a Methodist Chapel and Kingdom Hall, three Primary Schools, one private school and Launceston College, so both spiritual and secular needs are well served. The town has a range of shopping, commercial and leisure facilities, with supermarkets, its retail park and leisure centre. Nearer to the property is the challenging 18 hole golf course and many delightful walks along the Kensey Valley.
From Launceston Town Centre Proceed down the A388 (St Thomas Road). Take the first right hand turning into Wooda Road which then turns into Dockacre Road. Continue along this road passing a large Edwardian house on the left hand side where the pull in and drive for Moor Villa will then be found on the left hand side.
