Lamellion, Liskeard, Cornwall
This beautifully presented COUNTRY COMPLEX is fully modernised and immaculately presented and
comprises an impressive four/five bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse with adjoining three bedroom cottage and a newly converted Barn, a one bedroom open plan holiday let.
Having a stunning setting overlooking its beautiful gardens and woodland beyond is Tiptoe Farm, an historic property dating from the early 19th Century and originally part of the Lanhydrock Estate. This beautifully presented country complex is fully modernised and immaculately presented and located in the peaceful hamlet of Lamellion, on the rural outskirts of Liskeard. The property comprises an impressive four/five bedroom Grade II listed farmhouse with adjoining three bedroom 'Tiptoe Cottage', a previous apple barn with full residential consent and the newly converted 'Tiptoe Barn', a one bedroom open plan holiday let. Adjoining the main house is a spa room with large Jacuzzi, shower and w.c. and attached to the barn there are two large, modern cavity block built garages, each with power, lights and heating.
The properties nestle in approximately 2.8 acres of beautiful landscaped gardens, an orchard and woodland which is carpeted by snowdrops, primroses, daffodils and bluebells in the spring.
Tiptoe Farm nestles in a glorious peaceful position in the hamlet of Lamellion. An ideal place from which to explore south-east Cornwall. The property is approximately one mile from the market town of Liskeard which boasts an interesting range of independent retailers and supermarkets and mainline railway station linking directly to London Paddington.
The nearest coastal town is Looe, an historic fishing port and tourist destination which centers around its delightful harbour and sandy beaches. Slightly further afield there are a plethora of fishing villages including Polperro, Polruan and Fowey together with sandy beaches and cliff-top walks on the Southwest Coast Path. Keen golfers can visit a number of local clubs including St. Mellion.
The central location also allows ready access to the spectacular north coast, with its renowned surfing beaches, whilst the splendour of Dartmoor is also within easy driving distance. The city of Plymouth lies within commuting distance and offers a fantastic range of shopping and other facilities.
The property is entered via a timber canopied open porch with dwarf stone walls and slate floor. The front door opens into the entrance hall which has a period tiled floor and stairs up to the half landing and first floor. To the left hand side of the hall is the sitting room which overlooks the front garden and has a large stone fireplace with inset gas fired coal effect heater and clome oven and built in monks niche with oak shelf.
Across the hall is another spacious reception room currently used as a library, but also a potential dining room. Here there is a further stone fireplace with inset wood burner and exposed stone walls to either side. The third reception room is used as a study and is located to the rear of the property. A door leads from here out to the rear of the property and the covered walkway which leads to the adjoining cottage.
Across the hall is the traditional farmhouse kitchen which is lovely and light with two large windows with a long window seat across the width of both and a slate flag floor. The room is recently re-fitted with a range of cream panel fronted floor and wall cabinets and worktops which incorporate a sink unit and there is an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. A Range Master Elan gas hob and electric double oven cooker is in the old fireplace opening.
Off the kitchen is a boot room, also with a slate flag floor and a built-in cupboard housing the meters and built-in storage seat. A part glazed door leads out to the parking area and further inner door leads through to the good sized utility room. This is fitted with a good range of pine fronted floor and wall cabinets and there is a Belfast sink, plumbing and space for a washing machine, fridge freezer and tumble dryer and a built-in cupboard housing the hot water storage cylinder.
Completing the ground floor is the spa room. This room has proved to be very popular with paying guests in the past and can be independently accessed and locked off from the main house. There is a large Jacuzzi seating 6-8 people and a shower and separate w.c. A particular feature of this room is the deep covered well in one corner which has lighting.
From the entrance hall stairs lead up to a half landing with high stained glass window and door into the family bathroom. This is a lovely room with vaulted ceiling, exposed roof trusses and thermostat controlled under floor heating. There is a roll top slipper bath, high flush w.c., wash hand basin and separate shower with glass bricks to one side and heated towel rail. The stairs then lead up to the landing with doors to the five bedrooms. Four bedrooms are all good sized double rooms and all have window seats. Two overlook the front garden and two, the rear. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room with underfloor electric heating. Bedroom five is currently used as a dressing room and has a wall of wardrobes to one side. This could be reverted to a bedroom if required by removing the wardrobes.
Previously the apple barn, this fully renovated and beautifully presented cottage has been used as an annexe but is now run as a successful holiday let and can be sold fully furnished if required. The downstairs layout makes it also very suitable for an elderly or mobility impaired person; the accommodation has recently served as an effective granny annexe. A door to the rear of the property opens into the kitchen area which is well fitted with a range of modern floor and wall cabinets with worktops over incorporating a sink unit and electric hob with filter hood over. There is a built-in double oven and integrated fridge and freezer and plumbing for a dishwasher. Opening off the kitchen is the lovely lounge/dining room with French doors opening to the garden and a turned staircase to the first floor. A further door opens to the ground floor bedroom which has a built-in double wardrobe and a door to the ground floor wet room which has a further door back out to the kitchen. The first floor landing has a Velux window allowing lots of light to flood in and there is a shower room and two good sized double bedrooms, one with a vaulted ceiling.
This single storey barn has recently been completed and is now furnished and ready to be let out. The property has a lovely high vaulted ceiling with exposed roof trusses and Velux windows. The open plan accommodation comprises a living/dining area with fitted kitchen to one side comprising fitted floor cabinets with worktops over, sink and range of integrated appliances. A step leads up to the bedroom area where there is built-in shelving and hanging space. To the far end of the room is a separate shower room with shower cubicle, w.c. and wash hand basin. A door opens from the main living area to a few steps which lead down to a good sized private gravelled courtyard.
Attached to the barn are two large cavity block built garages, one measuring 33' x 15'3" and the other 14'9" x 23'3". Each has a remotely operated roller door to the front, tiled floor, power and lights connected and central heating. The large garage can also be accessed via the barn and a further pedestrian internal door links the two.
The property is approached over a sweeping drive which leads past the neighbouring property to a large parking area. Here there is an outside store and the part glazed door into the boot room. A path leads around the rear of the house where there are raised planted flower beds and a further outside store room located under the bathroom with doors to either side.
The beautifully maintained landscaped gardens stretch down in front of the property and are stocked with many mature shrubs, plants and trees. There is a summer house with adjacent patio area. Fenced vegetable plots with poly-tunnel and a tractor shed and wood store with garden machinery which may be available by separate negoation. Outside the farmhouse and cottage is a large patio running the length of the buildings and this widens to one end where there is a large tiered pond with water feature and beautifully planted beds around. A couple of steps lead up behind the pond to a further raised seating area. At the bottom of the garden there is an orchard. Several paths then lead to the well maintained woodland where meandering paths lead through carpets of bluebells, daffodils and snowdrops in the spring.
