A beautiful cottage set within nearly 1 acre of gardens. Ideally located just 2 miles from Launceston and the A30.

This beautiful, secluded home is accessed via a private gated entrance which opens to a substantial parking area for multiple vehicles, an oak framed car port and large, 30'x20' workshop.

The rural setting is very private, and the extensive gardens surround the property to all sides. Reaching approximately 1 acre, they consist of large lawns, an orchard, fruit and vegetable garden and numerous established trees and shrubs. This creates a wonderfully tranquil and safe environment for a family.

Having started life as a stone stable block, the building has been excellently transformed and extended by the current owners into a substantial and versatile family home.

Ground floor accommodation comprises 3/4 spacious double bedrooms with 3 very well equipped en-suites. The option of a fourth bedroom would require a simple stud wall to close in the room and create a corridor to the other rooms. Alternatively, the current use is an additional reception area.

The sizeable master bedroom boasts an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe.

There is an external level access to the first floor from the rear of the property which leads into the open plan kitchen/diner, alternatively, the stairs lead straight up the centre of this open plan space.

A separate study off the sitting room is ideal as a home office or children's play room
