An exciting opportunity to purchase a detached house in need of refurbishment and modernisation. The house is believed to date back to the 1930's, with features such as tiled and wooden floors, generous double bedrooms and a wide staircase.

The property has a former 1 bedroom annexe with services connected, a range of outbuildings and an adjoining 21 acres in total of mixed use land. This is a small holding that offers enormous potential to create a wonderful family home and viewings of the house and land are highly recommended.


From the front entrance porch, a spacious tiled hallway leads from front to back, with a rear porch and ground floor cloakroom. The kitchen/diner has a part tiled and wooden floor, a Belfast sink, space for freestanding kitchen units and an electric Rangemaster oven. There is a wood burner in the dining room and oil fired central heating throughout the house. The dual aspect sitting room has a feature fireplace and wooden floors, whilst the family room could be used as a 4th double bedroom if required.

A handmade wooden staircase to the first floor offers 3 double bedrooms and a larger than average family bathroom comprising a freestanding bath, shower cubicle, wash hand basin, WC and corner cupboard. 2 of the double bedrooms have fitted wardrobes with undercounter storage in the other.


Detached from the main house is a former annexe built of mixed construction and has services connected to the building. This provides space and the possibility of completely refurbishing or rebuilding to create annexe accommodation or a holiday let to provide an income, subject to the necessary permissions. Currently, the layout has a range of kitchen units, an adjoining sitting room and a double bedroom with a former en-suite shower room.


The property is approached at the front by paved pathway cutting through a level lawn. There are further adjoining lawns to the side and rear with ample space that offers lots of potential to create beautifully landscaped gardens. There is parking and a car port alongside the gardens with a former greenhouse and adequate space to create further off road parking.

The stable block is constructed of wood under a slate roof, has power and water connected and comprises 3 stable blocks, a feed store and a tack room. There is a concrete yard, a separate lambing shed with a lean-to hay store and a detached barn with a steel sheet roof.

The land comprises a mixture of meadowlands, gently sloping pasture and mature woodlands. Known locally as Kit Hill Plantation and part of Larkworthy Wood, these mature woodlands provide an abundance of wildlife and colour throughout the changing seasons. The Henford Water river runs through the valley and land, with a stone bridge at the end of the track which provides the access into Larkworthy Wood. There is a separate road access point into the meadowland and adjoining pasture.


1) Please note that the property being sold has a right of access over the track running alongside the eastern boundary of the property, to get access to the property, buildings and land.

2) There is an opportunity to purchase the property with less land if required. For further information on either of these points, please contact the Stags Launceston Office.
