House Network are delighted to present this lovely Grade II listed property situated in a conservation area, restored with love and care.
The Old Hall is of mainly Victorian Gothic design, with some Arts and Crafts elements, and was formerly the Sunday School to the Wesleyan Chapel, which was demolished in the 1960s. The current owners bought The Old Hall as an almost derelict building, with redundant and dilapidated external buildings. The old external buildings have now been demolished and a new extension created that is sympathetic to the original design. This now forms the master suite of bedroom, changing room and bathroom.
The main hall itself has been retained, and is utilised as the kitchen, dining area and lounge areas. The whole building has been extensively re-worked, to include underfloor and ceiling insulation, complete re-wiring, central heating and plumbing. The current owners have managed to retain the original sense of light and spaciousness of the property, while at the same time renovating the interiors to an exceptionally high standard.
Set in the Fowey valley, Lostwithiel is a famous stannary town of medieval origin. The 12 century Restormel Castle lies within the parish, and is a rare example of a shell-keep castle. The 14th century Grade 1 St Bartholomews church also lies within Lostwithiel, and the clocktower chimes can be regularly heard. Lostwithiel also has a charming 14th century bridge over the river Fowey, which becomes the focal point for various community-based events during the summer months. Lostwithiel station is on the main line to Paddington, and is also only 10 minutes from the A30.
The property measures approximately 229 sq mtrs (2456 sq ft).
