An opportunity to purchase a superb Regency detached four bedroom country home having outstanding panoramic views. The property has large and mature gardens, is offered for sale with no forward chain and backs onto open farmland. EPC rating E.
This detached country residence has no immediate neighbours and is located on the edge of this small north Cornish village. In recent years, it has been sympathetically renovated and refurbished to a very high standard by our client and is now ready for immediate occupation. The layout is highly flexible with generous living spaces, period features and character including 'A' frame beams, wood internal doors and deep slate sills, as well as many modern comforts. Hillside would suit a variety of purchasers from large families to those who require additional bedrooms to become work from home spaces. The attached former barn has been converted and encompasses a large kitchen/dining room, utility room and a large luxurious master bedroom with en-suite wet room, all with vaulted ceilings and underfloor heating. The lovely mature gardens offer shelter and privacy with views spanning some 180 degrees, encapsulating the surrounding countryside around to the north Cornish coast which can be visible in the distance. We have no hesitation in recommending a viewing on this property which is available with no forward chain.
The property is accessed by the impressive front door which opens into the main reception hall. This area has access to the ground floor WC and the study, which is dual aspect and has a wealth of uses and therefore can be used as a ground floor bedroom if required. The triple aspect lounge is a very large space and has been opened up to now form a 'L' shaped room with the fire surround at the centrepiece which has a wooden mantle and inset a multi fuel stove on a slated hearth. Double doors lead into the conservatory which has lovely views over the garden and beyond. The luxuriously appointed kitchen has an impressive vaulted ceiling and is very well equipped with a quality handmade shaker kitchen in solid white oak and cream with granite work surfaces. There are many integrated appliances including an electric range oven with induction hob and a dishwasher. The kitchen also has a centre island unit, a double ceramic Piecrust Belfast sink with mixer taps and a ceramic tiled floor. Access to the garden is provided via a glazed wooden door. The dining area continues on from the kitchen making it an ideal entertaining space. Moving through is the utility room, a large walk in cupboard/boot room and the ground floor bedroom suite which again benefits from the dramatic vaulted ceiling, underfloor heating and is triple aspect. The view from the feature window is simply stunning. Again, access can be gained by the double wooden doors to the garden via the terrace. The room also benefits with an en-suite shower room/WC with a large walk in shower area with mains fed soaker shower unit.
On the first floor, the remaining three bedrooms are all large enough to accommodate a double bed, the largest on this level was formally two separate rooms having two windows and benefits from an extensive range of built-in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room/WC. The family bathroom/WC has a matching four-piece suite to include a panelled bath and a separate shower cubicle with electric soaker shower. The house has modern comforts such as oil-fired central heating, underfloor heating in the barn conversion, and external windows are a mixture of wooden sealed units and UPVC sashed variety.
Hillside has a gate providing access from the road which opens into the large gravelled drive which provides plenty of off road parking and turning for many cars. There is a garage/workshop which has power and light, as well as a separate section that houses the boiler and hot water system. The rear gardens are well maintained, attractive and mature, being mainly laid to lawn with various shrub and flower borders. They feature many mature specimen trees. The rear of the house has access to many patio and terrace areas and decking which are all perfect places to enjoy outside dining and relaxing when the weather allows. The whole environment is picturesque with cattle often seen grazing on the ever changing landscape. The views stretch for many miles towards the coastline and both the slopes of Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks. There is outside lighting and water.
Hillside is positioned in the small North Cornish village of Warbstow some eleven miles to the West of Launceston Town. The A30 dual carriageway can be found within ten miles from the property and has excellent road links towards Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.
