Description

An exceptionally versatile house with land set in a fantastic location on the side of the Tamar Valley with a magnificent panoramic view to Dartmoor. Approached by a sweeping drive from the gated entrance and past the large double garage, there is ample turning and parking for vehicles. There is also a lower gated entrance to the garden/paddock and a pedestrian gate in front of the house.

Ground Floor

The front door leads into a large entrance hall which has stiars to the first floor. To the left a door opens to the original bungalow kitchen. From here, off an inner hallway, are three good size double bedrooms; two with garden and valley views and a well appointed bathroom and separate shower room. The snug is a lovely winter sitting area with double side multi fuel burner, the other side of which opens to the adjacent dining room. The kitchen is bespoke with fitted double oven, electric hob and extractor. Also included are dishwasher and refrigerator as part of a large range of storage units. Again, the valley and Dartmoor views are wonderful.

Ground Floor Cont/d

The other side of the entrance hall leads down two steps to the annexe which comprises of a large bed/sitting room (currently used as a studio) with separate glazed entrance to the front and window looking up the drive. There is an adjacent kitchenette and individual toilet and shower. The annexe is Council Taxed as an individual unit and can be locked to be self contained from the main house so offers great income potential. Also on the ground floor, accessed from the rear of the entrance hall is a conservatory/garden room with access to the garden from two entrances. It contains a utility area and plenty of room for seating and a table to enjoy the morning sun.

First Floor

Upstairs is a sizeable sitting room with large patio door to a balcony over the garden room. This area has the best panoramic views and the balcony is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy breakfast/lunch or the moonrise over Dartmoor. There is a roller canopy to shield the morning sun, if needed. At the back of the sitting room is a large study with dual aspect winodws to the front and up the drive. Also accessed from the sitting room is a large boarded loft area over the original bungalow. This has great potential as a master bedroom with en-suite or further development subject to the necessary consents.

Cellar

Beneath the house is a very useful cellar area which is currently used as a workshop. It allows underfloor access to services below the original bungalow and has multiple power points and lighting to all useable areas. There are also power feeds from here to the pond area and greenhouse.

Outside

The property lies just outside of the village of Chilsworthy on a very quiet lane. The land runs to a total in excess of 8.5 acres consisting of a large garden and paddock, 5.3 acres of pasture comprising of three fields with mains water plus 2.3 acres of deciduous woodland. There are two open fronted shelters at the field entrance which have both been recently reclad.
The garden is very well maintained and has two wooden sheds, a greenhouse and two large vegetable/fruit cages with a variety of established fruit trees, bushes and raised beds. There is also a pond with recirculation pump, fountain and small waterfall as well as secluded paved sitting areas. The fields are currently let on annual licence for grazing but the whole would be ideal for equestrian or self-sufficiency purposes. The grazing licence can be terminated on one month’s notice or could be continued by agreement. The woodland provides more than enough timber for the log burner.

Vendor's View

“Life over the past years in Chilsworthy has given us a time of wonderful scenery, wildlife and starry skies. Sitting on the balcony in the sunshine having breakfast or lunch has a calming effect. To be surrounded by kind neighbours is a plus and they really helped us to settle in. This is such a quiet corner of the beautiful county of Cornwall and we will be sad to leave”.
