Unique and versatile country residence situated within unspoilt countryside between Launceston and Bodmin Moor.

Location

Set in peaceful countryside two miles to the south of the village of South Petherwin, and just four miles south east of Launceston, Hornacott is an historic family home set within just over an acre of private gardens.

Nearby South Petherwin has a pub, two churches and an excellent primary school. Locally, there are several well regarded pubs and restaurants, including Coombeshead Farm (within walking distance of Hornacott and featured in The Times top 50 for Sunday lunch), the Springer Spaniel at Treburley, the Race Horse at North Hill and the Elliot Arms at Tregadillet.

Description

HISTORY

Hornacott dates back to around 1735 and has had several additions and renovations since, most notably in 1800 (spacious sitting room and master bedroom) and 2009 (kitchen). The current owners have had the south facing property for 23 years, prior to which the house had been owned by one of the cast of the original Poldark series.

THE PROPERTY

Hornacott boasts many original features and has been updated and extended to now provide highly versatile accommodation with five bedrooms in total. The accommodation includes an area which can be used for guest or a dependent relative.

The Georgian drawing room is dual aspect with an open fire, while the dining room in the older part of the house has an open fireplace and original flagstone floors. A snug with wood burner, bespoke kitchen with granite worktops, a pantry and utility room complete the ground floor.

There are four bedrooms in the main part of the house, including the master bedroom with 'Jack and Jill' en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom and a shower room, while the attached guest 'annexe' has a further bedroom and sitting room.

Countryside views are enjoyed from Hornacott and for those wanting an historic and characterful country home, yet close to major towns, this is a thoroughly charming lifestyle choice.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS

Immediately outside the kitchen is a west facing courtyard garden defined by the ruins of an old outbuilding, enjoying all day summer sunshine. The majority of the garden is laid to lawn, very well stocked by a wide variety of flowering plants and shrubs, many mature trees and plenty of areas to explore and enjoy, including a Finnish barbecue cabin / garden studio (with power connected) situated at the very far end of the garden providing the perfect ‘get away from it all’ space.

A stream runs near the lower boundary and there is a driveway extending to the road side (suitable for parking a motorhome etc). The main parking area for the house is situated adjacent to the workshop / store and there is a detached garage with further storage beneath. Finally, on the other side of the lane, there is an additional garage and parking space.
