Hicks Mill, Polyphant, Launceston
An opportunity to purchase with no forward chain a character and extended detached three bedroom country home with 1.45 acres. The property has a range of benefits including extensive outbuildings, stables, garages, gardens, paddock and fishing rights on the River Inny. EPC rating F.
Hillside is a character detached home that has been significantly extended in recent years and would suit a wide range of purchasers including those that need large outbuildings for storage, work from home or have horses. The accommodation is spacious and highly flexible and would benefit from some updating. Externally there is plenty of parking a static caravan and lapsed planning to add a detached annexe. The property is close to village facilities in nearby Polyphant and also has good access to road networks including the A30 which is a mile or so away and opens up many commuter routes to large towns and cities. All in all we believe that this character home offers so much to many and therefore an internal viewing is highly recommended.
Beyond the painted stone exterior which is part rendered lies the accommodation which is accessed at the front by a pedestrian path. The welcoming and spacious entrance porch leads into the hallway where the stairs ascend to the first floor. At either side is the breakfast room and the dining area. The breakfast room has an exposed stone floor to ceiling fireplace with cupboards at either side where there is room for a good sized table. The dining area leads into the lounge which is light and airy and dual aspect, again it has a stone fire surround with open fire and useful shelving at either side, large windows and a further real flame effect gas fire. The layout is sociable and would suit those with large families or who like to entertain. Double internal doors flow into the study/snug which is light and airy and a multi-purpose room. It has a small balcony and stairs that descend down to the garden room which also has double doors to the garden. The kitchen has a range of matching units and an electric range style oven which is included in the sale. Like the dining room it has a slated floor and extends into the utility room with walk in pantry and ground floor WC. Concluding this level is a useful boot room with further cupboards which leads to the garden.
On the first floor are three bedrooms all of which have built in wardrobes or cupboards. Bedroom one has an extensive range of fitted bedroom furniture to include beside drawers, wardrobes and a dressing table and a modern fitted en-suite shower room/WC which has a mains shower unit. The modern family bathroom/WC has a mains shower unit. Hillside has modern comforts including LPG fired central heating and external windows and doors are UPVC double glazed with many of the internal doors being the traditional latched style and in keeping with the character and integrity of the home.
One of the key elements of Hillside is the outside gardens and grounds, which would suit a range of buyers. There is a private driveway leading to a vehicular gate which opens into the plot which is well enclosed.
At the front of the property is an attractive garden which has a range of shrubs, bushes and perennials offering welcome colour at various times of the year, adjacent is a feature pond and a wraparound impressive raised decking area which encapsulates the outlook over the yard and towards the field. This is the perfect place to sit and relax. There are further garden areas and a selection of young specimen trees.
A selection of outbuildings are found within the grounds and include two double garages and additional adjacent workshops, these areas are great for storage of plenty of vehicles and perhaps would appear to the mechanic or classic car collector. A further vehicular gate leads into the equestrian yard which has a modern wooden stable block on a concrete base consisting of two loose boxes, a feed store and tack room. The stables have power, water and light. Adjacent is a further area which was once used as a small barked turn out area and access to the paddock. A large three bedroom static caravan has been used for overspill accommodation and has its own decking area. Further outbuildings include a former stable which has water and light connected, sheds and stores and a storage container. It is worth noting that on 28th April 2015 conditional planning permission was granted for the erection of a detached annexe. This consent has now lapsed but a prospective purchaser may wish to consider re applying for same. The paddock is gently sloping, well boarded by fencing and mature trees, it is well visible from the house and has its own separate agricultural access and a mains water trough.
The field leads naturally down to the bank of the River Inny, where for the keen or amateur fisherman there are fishing rights on the River which contain species to include brown trout and migratory trout. The River complements the delightful location in which the home sits.
