Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fine town residence known as Highway was built in the 1930s and has been the home of our client for almost 30 years. Located along a private driveway which serves just a few other similar styled homes and accessed by a sweeping pedestrian path it has character accommodation that would suit a wide range of buyers. Rooms include a welcoming reception hallway, a dual aspect lounge with lovely bay window and a separate a formal dining room both of which have feature fireplaces picture rails and ornate cornicing. The modern kitchen/ breakfast room was refitted in 2009 and has a large space for a breakfast table. The kitchen has a built in double electric oven and a gas hob. A significant improvement back in 2003 was the addition of a glorious UPVC double glazed conservatory which has a laminated floor and access to the side garden. The conservatory is accessed from the study which could be enclosed to provide a third bedroom if so required. The dual aspect main bedroom has another bay window and a built in wardrobe and bedroom two is also a good sized double dual aspect room with wardrobe. Both bedrooms share use of the family bathroom/ WC which has a shower over the panelled bath. There is an additional separate WC and a useful utility room. Highway has a large loft space, plenty of storage cupboards, mains gas fired central heating and is mainly UPVC double glazed. The rooms are lovely and spacious with the principle rooms facing south being light and airy as they are often washed with natural sunlight. The home is presented for sale in excellent decorative order to a neutral colour scheme. The vendor has informed us that there are a number of items of furniture at the property, in particular within the conservatory that may be available and included as part of the sale.

Externally there are well manicured gardens which are a credit to the owner. At the front there is an open plan lawned garden flanked by a selection of mature shrubs. At one side a feature ornamental pond and water feature provides the perfect soundtrack for enjoying the colour of the garden in particular the stunning camellias and rhododendrons. At the rear is a useful workshop and outside WC, power points and water tap. At the other side a large potting shed along with a patio provides a further area for "al fresco" dining during the warmer months. All areas of the grounds enjoy one of the best views we have seen encapsulating Launceston Castle and Dartmoor national park. An additional plot can be found behind the tarmac driveway, the detached single and a useful garden shed. This area is lawned and includes what was a cultivated vegetable plot and an orchard. Whilst planning consent for a dwelling has been turned down in the distant past, it is worth knowing that this area has potential to be used for other uses subjective to obtaining the relevant consents.

All in all this special property has a variety of unique selling points and we recommend an early internal inspection.

The property is situated within one mile of the ancient former market town centre of Launceston which boasts a 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. Also from here accessible are the cities of Plymouth and Exeter both of which have wider city facilities and superb transport links further afield and Plymouth with its Continental Ferry Port access to both France and Spain.
From Launceston Town Centre proceed down the A388 (St Thomas Road). Upon reaching the roundabout at Newport continue straight ahead up St Stephens Hill and proceed passing the entrance to St Cuthbert Close and the St Cuthbert Mayne Catholic Church. Turn left and park in the Church car park. Then walk up the drive on the other side of St.Stephens Hill. The property will be found on the left hand side.
