  • Grade II Listed four bedroom cottage.
  • A wealth of character and charm throughout.
  • Substantial reception space including a large garden room.
  • Modern kitchen and bathroom suites.

This stunning Grade II Listed detached country residence has a wealth of character throughout and offers high quality accommodation that is substantial, flexible and would suit a wide range of buyers. Its charm and heritage is visible as it is believed to date back to the 17th century.

There is a substantial outbuilding in the garden used as a workshop/garage/gym (which had, in 2018, benefited from planning consent to be demolished and a new three bedroom property constructed in its place, but this has lapsed). It offers ample parking and secure storage, with a separate area that could be used as a gym or home office.

Beyond the attractive stone exterior lies the accommodation which sits under a slated roof. It is served by many external doors, but most frequently used is the door into the useful side entrance lobby that connects to the kitchen and a ground floor modern shower room/WC. The traditional cottage style kitchen has a range of matching cream wall and base units to include wooden work surfaces with drawers underneath. Included in the sale is an electric oven and hob, a refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. The kitchen also features the recessed Aga (which is currently decommissioned). The room has modern down lighting and a tiled floor. Moving through, the dining room is used on a daily basis, is dual aspect offering plenty of natural light. There is room for a good sized table and, in the corner, is an attractive period fire surround.

There are two separate reception rooms to the front of the cottage. The living room features stunning vertical beams, tiled floor, beamed ceiling, window seat and an attractive former fireplace and represents the oldest part of the house.

The lounge has a striking inglenook stone fireplace which has a wooden lintel, clome oven and a wood burning stove, set on a brick hearth. When lit, this provides a lovely feel to the room which has a slated floor. At each side of the fireplace are two attractive storage recesses and corner display plinth with a window seat. In the middle, are the stairs that are accessed by a door and ascend to the first floor as well as an external door to the garden that was once the main entrance to the property. The garden room, which was added some years ago, is often used in the warmer months for casual dining and relaxing whilst enjoying a splendid view over the gardens. It has a poly carbonate roof and provides access to the utility room and general store, as well as the garden.

On the first floor, the split level landing has access to all bedrooms. The master bedroom suite is a large room with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and benefits from a walk in dressing room and an en-suite shower room/WC, which has a large shower tray. The second bedroom also has a lovely ceiling with exposed ‘A’ frame beams. These rooms, like bedroom four, enjoy a delightful outlook over the gardens and surrounding countryside. The rear section of the first floor features a spacious landing, with an airing cupboard to the side, which would be a great place for a study. Adjacent, the third bedroom is a good size and has an outlook to the side. The luxuriously appointed bathroom is fully tiled and has a tiled floor, modern down lighting and features a matching modern bathroom suite with a large bath with shower taps and a separate large shower cubicle with electric shower unit.

The property, which has many modern comforts includes updated electrics, and a heating system which is supplied by a modern oil boiler. External windows and doors are wooden to retain the character feel with the sills being large enough for useful storage or seating.

The total plot size amounts to approximately 0.5 of an acre. The gravelled driveway has parking and turning for many vehicles and at the side a pedestrian gate provides access to the garden. The gardens are a major feature of the property. They are very well stocked with many colourful plants and trees, including an Indian Bean tree.

The gardens are attractive, well established and feature a wide variety of large specimen shrubs and perennials. This very interesting garden has many gravelled pathways which are flanked by colourful shrubs, railway sleepers and patios feature in the landscaping and there are many spots to unwind and relax, to catch the sunshine, as they enjoy a southerly aspect.

The large garage/workshop is perfect for those with hobbies or to house a collection of classic cars or bikes. It could also be developed separately for other uses subject to a planning alteration with lapsed planning for a separate property, which was granted in 2018. A useful stone garden shed will be found along with the boiler shed at the rear and a useful second driveway providing additional outside space and parking.

Higher Welby lies just off the B3254, North of Launceston. Village amenities such as a Village Hall and County Primary Schools can be found at both North Petherwin and Boyton within a few miles of the property. The Stumble Inn bar and restaurant is approximately 1.5 miles away providing in-house food and a takeaway service. Launceston which is approximately 7 miles distant, has a range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 dual carriageway given access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction. For those with coastal interests the North Cornish Resort of Bude can be reached within 9 miles, which is known for its miles of sandy beaches, surf and cliff top walks.

For further communications the Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 49 miles distant or about an hour’s drive and has a more extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities as well as access to the M5 motorway, mainline rail network to London (Paddington) and further north. Exeter is served by an excellent regional international airport. The continental ferry port and city of Plymouth is approximately 33 miles from the property and again offers extensive facilities as well as regular cross channel ferry services to France and Spain.
From Launceston Town centre proceed down the A388 (St. Thomas Road) upon reaching the roundabout at Newport continue straight ahead heading up St. Stephens Hill out of Launceston and into St. Stephens. Continue through St. Stephens along the B3254 heading through Yeolmbridge for a further 6 miles or so, taking the turning on the left hand side signposted West Curry. Proceed along this road towards the very end where the gated entrance will be found on the left.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see: https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/en-gb/about-checker#Answer_0_2

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
