Internally the property oozes character and charm and viewing is highly recommended.

This property is located in a small rural hamlet of Frogwell approximately 1 mile south west of the town of Callington. Only seconds from good transport links but enjoys rural countryside views and relative peace and privacy.

This property is situated in the town of Callington which is a small town situated in East Cornwall, just 10 miles from the larger towns of Launceston and Tavistock, and 14 miles from Plymouth which is therefore within commuting distance via the Tamar Bridge at Saltash. Amenities in Callington include a varied shopping centre, Churches, schools of repute, medical centre, library and bus services. The Kit Hill Country Park is within a mile of the town, providing bracing walks, breathtaking views and landmarks of historic interest. There are also nearby golf courses at Launceston and St Mellion.

East Frogwell Barn is a most handsome detached barn conversion that has been lovingly restored and converted by the current owner. The property is Grade II Listed due to the original exposed beams and beautiful arched windows to the front. Sympathetically converted and includes an abundance of character and charm throughout.

On the ground floor the main entrance is a solid wood double door into a reception hall with exposed roof trusses and vaulted ceiling and galleried landing to the first floor. Slate flooring and exposed beams and stone work makes an impressive first impression. A door leads to a storage cupboard currently used as a workshop/hobby room. There is a fireplace and wood burner and central returning bespoke staircase. A door leads into the main central living room with stunning exposed ceiling beams, arched double glazed window to the southerly aspect, fireplace with cast iron wood burner. A generous sized room and currently accommodates an office suite.

Continuing through to the dining room with exposed beams. Second staircase to first floor, cupboard under stairs and door through to kitchen. Two further double glazed arched windows to front bring in plenty of natural light. Spacious enough to house the largest of dining tables.

The large kitchen/breakfast room is over 30 feet long and is the heart of the home. It extends down to a breakfast/dining area with double doors to a meter/storage cupboard, sliding doors to a pretty courtyard area. Central to the kitchen is an amazing arched stable door leading to the front southerly level garden. The kitchen is equipped with an electric hob, eye level ovens and al oil fired Aga. Plenty of matching eye level and base kitchen units and a sink with mixer tap and drainer.

There are two staircases to the firt floor. From the reception hall the stairs lead into the main dressing room for the main bedroom and includes a range of wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors and shelving. This room could be altered to become a fourth bedroom if required. Leading into the main bedroom with two sliding patio doors to Juliette balconies to the front and rear aspects with a wonderful view to the front. A good size bedroom with a generous amount of wardrobes and cupboards. Leading on to the main en-suite with a large corner jacuzzi bath, tiled floor, heated towel rail, low level WC, linen cupboard, windows to front and rear, sink with worktops and cupboards under.

A further landing leads to the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. The 3rd bedroom is a good size double with a window to the rear aspect.

The property is currently approached immediately to the front with a hard standing for two cars and bricked paviour around to the side offering further parking and access to the rear garden and timber garden shed.

To the front of the property there is a well maintained level garden with a southerly aspect. Includes patio areas, level lawn, raised beds and with a sunny aspect and great place for external entertaining or relaxing. The pretty courtyard area (accessed from the kitchen) is a relaxing area to enjoy alfresco dining and has been greatly improved recently by the current owner. Overhead is a slate pitched canopy providing shelter from the elements. A level area into the bank houses the oil tanks which fuels the central heating and Aga.

To the rear is a further driveway and this area will need to be approached as potential. Some of the drive has been laid to tarmac with the rest of this area to be completed. However this offers an excellent opportunity to be finished to suit the lifestyle and requirements of a purchaser. There are also areas where landscaping will need to be completed, again this can be completed to suit the taste and plans of a purchaser. The level area (and completed drive) leads to an approximate 300 square metre detached barn. A separate electricity supply feeds to the barn and this space could be an exciting opportunity for a purchaser who wants an impressive workshop or works from home in an engineering capacity or a car enthusiast. Two metal electric roller shutter doors lead into comprehensive workshop space and subject to an further consents could be used as an ancillary/holiday accommodation. This building cannot be split from the title of the main house or sold off as a separate dwelling.
