Trekelland Farmhouse, Lezant, Launceston
An elegant and substantial detached Grade II Listed farmhouse with 2.8 acres offering highly flexible accommodation. With plenty of character, the four bedroom home has a significant amount of outbuildings, gardens and a large paddock. EPC Exempt.
This substantial home which is Grade II Listed dates back to the 1600's and has a wealth of character throughout the residence. The property has a rich history and was we believe owned by the Church at some stage in the past. It has been in the ownership of the same family for many generations with our client having been in residence for over 50 years!
Today, the farmhouse has much to offer a wide variety of buyers and has great potential to consider using the many outbuildings for a range of purposes including the option to create an additional residence, subject to obtaining all necessary consents. In the mid 1990's the property was significantly improved and renovated by way of a grant and was re-roofed with many windows being replaced and the first floor ceiling re-enforced by what is a large feature RSJ. Externally, the gardens are a feature of the home and the adjacent large paddock gently descends down to a tributary of Lowley Brook amounting in total to some 2.8 acres which combines to make the purchase of the property an attractive proposition.
The following is a quotation from the home owner:
"We could tell about the swallows in the old barn, the soaring buzzards and the owls calling at night. Of long summer evenings when the bats emerge and silently zigzag the starry skies. But we'd rather tell of two brothers, riding their bikes around the farmhouse floors, again and again, iust because they could. Of family Christmases, both log fires burning to keep the cold at bay. So many good memories. The walls breathe softly, anticipating the next chapter within it's arms.....supposing who it might be.........."
The highly flexible accommodation can be accessed through many different points and comprises a welcoming reception hall which has access to one of the two staircases which ascend to the first floor. The main sitting room is a real feature of Trekelland Farmhouse and is dominated by the floor to ceiling inglenook fireplace which has a granite lintel and inset a traditional clome oven recess with a wood burner set on a stone hearth. The room, which was formally two, has two steps up to a dining area at one end with a further attractive fireplace at the side. As with many of the rooms throughout the property there are window seats and a slate flagstone floor. From here, another staircase ascends to the first floor. Moving through, the farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room is light and airy and has an oil fired Heritage (aga style oven) that is a cooking source and also configures and fires the oil fired central heating system. There are a number of cupboards and a walk in pantry is a useful storage space. For those who like to entertain formally, there is a large dining room that has parquet flooring and a tiled fireplace with storage recesses and cupboards. Completing the ground floor is a spacious utility room which has a double butler sink, traditional kitchen style cupboards and again is light and airy.
On the first floor are four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double wardrobe and a large into eaves storage area. Bedroom two has a fitted cupboard and bedroom three is used as a study and bedroom four is used as a hobbies room. All rooms share use of the large light and airy family bathroom /WC which has a matching four piece suite including a double shower cubicle with a mains shower.
The property has oil fired central heating with some vertical radiators which which maximise on wall space with most being of a cast iron design. The property has a warm feel and is highly flexible and would be able to adapt to many buyers living requirements.
Attached to the accommodation is the granary barn which is a useful storage space and has a separate access. This barn as it's linked to the main property, has an opportunity subject to obtaining all necessary consents to become a fifth bedroom if so required. Another key asset is the detached former hay barn within the drive which is substantial and has been used for many decades for useful storage. This barn also has a wealth of potential and again subject to consents could be an annexe or perhaps a holiday let which could derive a valuable second income, either way, once again, this illustrates the potential on offer by the acquisition of this fine residence.
Externally, Trekelland Farmhouse has a sweeping gravelled drive which has a useful single garage and a double yard store. The minute you enter the driveway you can see the property in all of its elegance. The gardens surrounding the property are well manicured and feature a range of attractive shrubs, bushes and perennials. A further useful store will be found and at the side an additional stone storage barn known affectionately as the "skinny barn".
From here, access can be gained by a gate to a further garden area with many specimen trees and then through to the main pasture paddock. The large field is well enclosed and slowly descends down to part of Lowley brook which is a tributary of the River Inney. The paddock is well enclosed and well drained and would be ideal for those who wish to keep stock. The whole of the area has the most wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.
The property lies deep in the heart of the North Cornish countryside. It is in Lezant Parish which borders the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
