You enter the property via the south facing conservatory and are welcomed with a gentle warmth and views of the garden, perfect for taking a break after a walk in the countryside whilst admiring the pleasant vista. Entering through a solid wooden door into the large entrance hallway, you will see the original staircase which is a masterpiece of bygone carpentry skills. The dining room is the first room you come to and benefits from an open fireplace to warm the room on a winter's night as well as a beautiful original ceiling rose which accentuates the high ceilings. Double doors open up to the modern aluminium and glazed veranda which overlooks the garden. The living room has a bay window with sash windows overlooking the rear garden and a wood burner creating a cosy ambience. Beyond the living room is an office, ideal for working from home if you can manage to focus without being distracted by the wonderful outlook.
The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted in a country style with a range of cream coloured units with an engineered granite worktop, incorporating microwave and steam ovens together with a warming drawer and a fitted dishwasher. There is space for an American style fridge/freezer and a large freestanding range cooker. At the rear of the kitchen there is access to storage under the stairs. A door leads to a utility space with storage and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer and on to the back door. The boiler room is located off the utility room and houses the biomass boiler and the thermal heat store tank.
As you climb the intricate staircase, you will find a storage cupboard on the half landing as well as access to a shower room with WC and basin which is adjacent to the smallest double bedroom. Continuing up to the spacious landing there is the family bathroom with whirlpool bath, WC and basin and four further bedrooms which are all double rooms. Both the master and second bedrooms benefit from wonderful far reaching views over the garden, woodland, Lydford Gorge and to Cornwall on the very distant horizon. The master bedroom also benefits from an en-suite bathroom.
The annexe has its own front door as well as access from the hallway in the main house and comprises of a living room with a gas fire and a kitchen/dining room with wooden units including integrated oven and gas hob. The double bedroom offers plenty of wardrobe space and the bathroom has a bath, sink and separate WC. This annexe could offer a potential income stream as a holiday let or could also suit a dependant relative.
Outside, the property benefits from a large garden which has been landscaped over the years to create a range of distinct zones including a level area for the children to play out or to enjoy a spot of croquet. An area of fruit trees, a greenhouse and raised beds provide the opportunity for you to work those green fingers and grow some home produce. Beyond here is a natural leat which enters a pond full of wildlife and is surrounded by mature shrubs, bushes and a large mature Magnolia. The garden then leads to the property’s woodland which starts to drop down the side of the valley all the way down to the eastern footpath at the National Trust's Lydford Gorge. The woodland is part of the Lydford Gorge Site of Special Scientific Interest and is a semi-ancient woodland comprising mostly of mature Oak and Ash trees. The final 'piece de resistance' is the approximately half acre paddock which gently slopes to the stream with post and rail fence and has its own access from the private lane.
A biomass boiler (fuelled by logs and/or wood pellets) powers the central heating system and hot water. Two solar hot water panels also heat the hot water. A 'Calor' gas tank powers the gas hobs and gas fire.
