Priddacombe Farm, Bolventor, Launceston
This stunning moorland residence is located at the end of a mile long private track in a beautiful location amongst amazing wildlife and views. It has three bedroomed accommodation with a log cabin and many outbuildings.
This fine moorland residence originally dates back to the early 19th century and sits deep within Bodmin Moor with only one neighbouring home. It enjoys a wonderful south facing aspect with breath taking views over the open moorland. We understand that the residence burnt down over 30 years or so ago which resulted in the construction of the cottage on the former footprint. This was undertaken using reclaimed materials and was done sympathetically to the area. Today this fine home continues to offer real escapism and would be perfect for those who want tranquillity yet not isolation, as within a few minutes by car the A30 dual carriageway can be accessed and 1.5 miles away at Bolventor a farm shop offers day to day supplies. There are large well-kept gardens and grounds amounting to about 1.3 acres, a stable block, re-roofed double garage and attractive tree lined level driveway.
Internally, rooms include a lovely dual aspect lounge/dining room which is flooded with natural light. It has a lounge area which is dominated by the wall mounted "Danish Scan' wood burning stove which is a lovely focal point within the room and sits next to two wooden display mantles with a slate hearth beneath. There is a beamed ceiling and Canadian maple wood flooring adding to the warm feel of the room. The dining area has a built-in 'L' shaped oak bench with storage within. The study is flexible dual aspect and lovely and light and ideal for its purpose. It can be used as an occasional fourth bedroom as and when needed. The wonderful kitchen is well equipped with a range of painted units incorporating wall and base units with a plate rack. There is a splendid oval shaped centre island unit with wood units below with a polished granite top perfect for the keen cook. Integrated appliances are aplenty with a "Lacanche" dual fuel range cooker with hob and extractor above. In addition there is a "Baumatic" electric oven and a "Neff" microwave. The room has modern spotlighting and tile effect flooring and features hand painted Mexican tiled splashbacks. From this room double doors lead out to the rear patio which is the ideal place to enjoy alfresco dining whilst taking in the beautiful surroundings during the warmer months. Completing the ground floor is a recently improved useful utility room and a separate WC.
On the first floor are three bedrooms with bedrooms one and two enjoying the finest of the outlook over the countryside. Bedroom two has a large built in wardrobe with hanging space. Bedroom three is a single room which has a built in double wardrobe and also has additional fitted bedroom furniture. The spacious family bathroom/WC has a matching suite including a panelled bath and a separate shower cubicle with mains shower unit. The airing cupboard houses a recently installed pressurised hot water tank and immersion. On the first floor the windows have attractive wooden shutters and deep sills.
Improvements undertaken to the house in recent years include adding a new oil fired central heating system as well re-roofing the building, extensive re-decoration has been undertaken throughout and enhanced the overall appeal of this home. The property benefits from super-fast broadband which is a huge advantage in a location such as this.
Priddacombe Farm is approached from the track by two five bar gates which serve the long tree lined attractive driveway which sweeps around to the gravelled parking area which has room for numerous vehicles. There are attractive gardens which consist of a paved seating area which is well placed and encapsulates the vista across the Moor where an incredible display of wildlife will be regularly seen.
One of the key attributes of Priddacombe Farm is the log cabin which would be ideal for those who work from home or who have hobbies such as playing music, craft, or model making. It would also make a good games area or gymnasium. The log cabin has power, light and a phone line.
A selection of outbuildings include a detached double garage which has been re-roofed with double doors and a stable block. The stable block consists of a tack room and two loose boxes which all have a good concrete base, power and light and overlooks the small paddock which we understand amounts to just under 0.9 of an acre.
Despite the unique, remote and isolated location, close by the Jamaica Inn has a farm shop supplying essentials and newspapers. There is excellent walking and riding out available on the moor and the highest Cornish peaks of both Brown Willy and Roughtor are in the backdrop of the residence. The A30 is about one mile away and has excellent access to both Launceston and Devon to the East and Bodmin and further into Cornwall to the West. The ancient town of Launceston regarded as the 'Gateway to Cornwall' has a range of educational, recreational, commercial and leisure facilities, as well as a Norman castle and attractive town centre. Recently works have been completed at Temple and now a dual carriageway is enjoyed all the way to Bodmin providing easier access to extensive town facilities and the main line railway station (Bodmin Parkway) which is situated approximately 20 minutes' drive from the property and has daily services to London (Paddington) and further north. For further communications the Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 53 miles distance, or about a 1 hour drive and has a more extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities, as well as access to the M5 motorway. Exeter is served by an excellent regional international airport. The continental ferry port and city of Plymouth is approximately 31 miles from the property and again offers extensive facilities as well as regular cross channel ferry services to France and Spain.
The following is a quotation from the home owners:
"Tranquility surrounds Priddacombe Farm. Here we are nestled within a historic landscape which has panoramic views of open countryside and big skies. These skies bring wonderful sunrises, sunsets and star filled nights.
The landscape attracts much wildlife ranging from murmurations of starlings in the winter, to the flight of swallows and songs of skylarks in the summer.
Coming home and turning off the A30 we are met by spectacular views of Brown Willy and Roughtor and feel the stresses of everyday life melt away."
