Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This fine detached residence known as Barton Villa is believed to date back over 250 years. It has a wealth of character throughout the well-proportioned and highly flexible accommodation. About 18 years ago a substantial extension was added to create a luxurious master bedroom suite. Today this lovely home would suit a wide variety of buyers and is ready for immediate occupation as it is offered for sale with no forward chain.

Beyond the attractive exterior lies the accommodation which features a welcoming reception hall which serves the Farmhouse style kitchen/dining room. The kitchen area is of a country style with solid oak fronted wall and base units with roll top granite effect worksurfaces and glass display cabinets. There are integrated appliances including a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, electric oven and an oil fired Rayburn set within a stone fire surround which fires both the central heating and domestic hot water systems. The kitchen has modern lighting, a tiled floor and the dining area has space for a large table. This area leads out to the large conservatory which has a solid roof and a splendid outlook over the garden, making it the perfect place to sit in to enjoy leisurely time all year round. The impressive lounge is triple aspect and has a feature stone fire surround with inset a wood burning stove. The fire creates a lovely atmosphere and along with the recessed drinks area is the ideal place to entertain. Completing the ground floor is the utility room, downstairs WC, porch and a useful study which could be used as a play/hobbies room or an occasional sixth bedroom.

On the first floor there are five further bedrooms, four of which are double in size. The master bedroom suite makes up a large part of the extension and is luxurious with two windows at the front elevation and a generous en-suite bathroom/WC which has a separate shower cubicle. The remaining bedrooms share use of the family bathroom/WC which again has a separate shower cubicle as well as a bath.

Barton Villa has a wealth of character throughout including beamed ceilings, slate sills, and wood internal doors. Many of the rooms are light and airy and often washed with natural sunlight. It is clear to see how it would make a lovely home, as it has done proudly for our clients over the past 29 years!

Externally, the property is approached by a private drive which leads to the car port and parking area. There is a further open fronted garage which has been used as a wood store. A selection of outbuildings will be found including a large workshop with double doors, a store, potting shed and a further large shed perfect for those who need space to carry out their hobbies. The well-manicured front gardens are a credit to the sellers, being level they are well enclosed and feature a wide variety of shrubs, bushes and perennials. There is a crazy paved seating area well positioned to capture the afternoon sunshine. At the rear there is part of a field which is enclosed to one large paddock. The paddock backs onto open farmland and has a pleasant view overlooking the Ottery valley.

Barton Villa is positioned in the small North Cornish village of Canworthy Water some ten miles to the West of Launceston Town. The A30 dual carriageway can be found within eight miles from the property and has excellent road links towards Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction. Within a few miles from the property there are village amenities found at the nearby Wainhouse Corner and at Hallworthy there is a public house.
