The Location - The popular village of Luxulyan offers a range of local amenities including a post office, public house, primary school and church. There are open moorland and woodland walks within the Luxulyan Valley with its impressive Treffry Viaduct, which is within walking distance of the property. Only two miles from the Eden Project, Luxulyan Valley is approximately 140 acres in size and in recognition of its historic mining, gained World Heritage Status in 2006. There are many interesting walks and historic features, hence popular with walkers and historians. Within walking distance is the railway station, which can take you to either the South coast of Par or the North coast of Newquay. The town of St Austell is situated approximately 5 miles away and offers a wider range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities.

There is a mainline railway station and leisure centre together with primary and secondary schools and supermarkets. The picturesque coastal port of Charlestown and the award winning Eden Project are easily accessible and within a short drive. The town of Fowey is approximately 8 miles away and is well known for its restaurants and coastal walks. The Cathedral City of Truro is approximately 20 miles from the property.

The Property - Set behind a stone pillared entrance way in the heart of the village, The Old Vicarage is set behind a gated access and an impressive sweeping driveway leads around a central rockery to the ample parking area to the front and side of the property.

The impressive gardens are formal in style, laid mostly to lawn with mature borders and hedging surrounding the property, affording an excellent degree of privacy. The house is set in the centre of the grounds and surrounded by the lovely gardens, which benefit from sun in various locations throughout the day. A large timber workshop located to the side of the drive offers scope as workspace/storage space.

The house has undergone complete transformation by the present owners, who have created an impressive residence which they currently run as a successful B&B business. However, the flexible layout and spacious accommodation could equally be used as a family home with granny annexe for multi-generational living or separate accommodation. There is further potential for development in the form of a triple garage with 2 bedroom annexe above, and the owners have had plans drawn up which are available to view.

With great attention to detail, the accommodation flows well throughout the house and presented in beautiful condition. The attractive, formal sitting room has double doors opening to the pretty gardens and there is a multi-fuel stove for those chillier evenings. The formal dining room has space for an imposing dining table and the craft room could easily be transformed to a playroom or snug. There is a well-appointed kitchen, currently used specifically for the B&B business, however the owners have created a further, fabulous kitchen/living room, perfect for entertaining, with exposed beams, vaulted ceiling and striking slate floor. Doors open to a lovely patio to the rear and overlook the pretty gardens.

All Bedrooms are individual in style and offer stylish en suite facilities. Each room overlooks the private gardens.
