St. Cleer Road, Liskeard, Cornwall
This spacious and beautifully presented five bedroom Edwardian House was designed by architects The Henry Rice Partnership in the early 1900's and is set over three floors with many period features. Tucked away in a small cul-de-sac set back from the main road sitting in walled gardens to the side and rear, the property offers spacious family living with the second floor attic room having a bathroom and kitchenette which could generate income from Air B & B if required. A planning application is also being submitted for change of use for the garage to a detached holiday let.
The property lies on the fringe of the market town of Liskeard which has a wide range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities including a fully equipped sports centre, mainline railway station serving London Paddington (via Plymouth) and access to the A38 trunk road which links the town of Bodmin with the City Port of Plymouth. At Plymouth there is an excellent range of department stores, cinemas, deep water marina, cross channel ferry port serving northern France and Spain. To the north some 15 miles is the former market town of Launceston where there is access to the A30 trunk road, which links the Cathedral Cities of Truro and Exeter. At Exeter there is access to the M5 motorway network. To the south of the property is the picturesque south Cornish coast with the towns of Looe and Polperro and therefore the property represents a most useful base to explore both the north and south Cornish coasts.
An iron gate opens from the road to a sloping footpath with iron railings that leads up to the front garden and open front porch which has attractive period floor tiles and a substantial door which opens to the entrance lobby with a similar tiled floor and inner door to the hallway. This has oak flooring and a lovely split staircase to the first floor with under stair storage. At the far end of the hall there is a rear lobby with door to the garden and an extremely useful large walk-in storage cupboard with window to one end.
Both the living room and dining room are spacious and very light with large bay windows to the front and additional side windows. Both have marble fireplaces with an inset multi fuel burner to the living room and a gas fire to the dining room. The kitchen/breakfast room is a lovely family space with French doors leading out to the large conservatory to the side. The kitchen is fitted with a good range of floor and wall cabinets with granite worktops incorporating a sink unit and there is a matching central island unit with wooden work surface. There is a useful walk-in pantry, space for an American fridge freezer, a Range cooker and plumbing and space for a washing machine. Off the kitchen is the utility room which has further built-in floor and wall cabinets, sink unit, stable door to the garden, cupboard housing the gas fired central heating boiler and a cloakroom with w.c. and wash hand basin. Completing the ground floor is a separate study.
Stairs lead up to the first floor where they split off to the left to bedroom three. This is a double bedroom with dual aspect windows and a sink in one corner. The main staircase turns and leads to the spacious main landing where there is a further staircase to the second floor.
The master bedroom is a lovely room with a wooden floor, bay window to the front and a wall of fitted wardrobes. The en-suite shower room is a good size and has a shower cubicle, twin vanity sinks, w.c. with hidden cistern, plenty of built-in storage and a tall split window opens out to the front balcony which has iron railings.
Alongside is bedroom two which has a window to the side and a sink unit. Bedroom four is L shaped, has dual aspect windows and has a sink and tall split window opening to the balcony. The family bathroom has a white suite comprising a panelled bath with shower over, w.c., wash hand basin and airing cupboard housing the hot water storage cylinder. Alongside is a separate w.c.
The second floor attic enjoys lovely views across rooftops to countryside beyond and could be used as a self-contained unit perhaps providing additional income from Air B & B if required. There is a living area with kitchenette off which opens to a bedroom area with en-suite bathroom.
The raised front garden is accessed either via the footpath or a flight of stairs next to the existing garage. The garden is laid to lawn and is beautifully stocked with maples and other established shrubs and trees. To one side a high gate opens to the side garden and to the other side a wide gravelled footpath leads to a further gate to the rear. The walled rear garden is level and mostly laid to lawn. There are seating areas finished with gravel and paving and many more mature shrubs, flowering plants and trees.
