A wonderful example of a former mill located in a peaceful and rural location yet situated a short distance from Egloskerry. (contd...)
This lovely former mill is believed to date back to the latter part of the 16th Century and has been in the ownership of the same family for over 50 years.Today it is offered for sale with no forward chain. The accommodation has a wealth of character throughout and no doubt a buyer will relish the opportunity to update it to their own style and taste. In addition there is potential for a project to convert the substantial adjacent barns, which currently provide valuable storage, into potentially (subject to obtaining all consents) leisure, work, hobbies, holiday let or supplementary residential accommodation.
The property, which is not listed, has many rooms including a large light and airy south facing lounge and an imposing formal dining room which has beamed and wood panelled ceilings, wooden struts, slate floors and wall lights. The kitchen on the ground floor presents the perfect opportunity for a buyer to upgrade to their taste. Completing this level there is a large side entrance porch and shower room/WC.
On the first floor there are four bedrooms with a large master bedroom having two windows and like most of the first floor, a wooden floor. Bedroom four is located adjacent to the main bedroom which could be used as a nursery or a separate bedroom with its own side access to the rear garden. Bedroom two is also a large double bedroom with access up to the second floor attic area. Bedroom three stands adjacent to the family bathroom WC and is a single bedroom and like bedroom four enjoys a wonderful view over the surrounding countryside.
The attic is particularly spacious and is currently open, providing valuable storage. There are some old feature cruck beams.This area which has been previously used as a games/hobbies area could be adopted to create further bedroom space if so required.
Whilst the property needs a degree of updating, the current owners have invested in replacing all external windows and the front door, which are hardwood double glazed, handcrafted by a local carpenter. The Old Mill is warmed through oil fired central heating.
In addition to the substantial barns at the side there is off road parking for a number of vehicles and a front garden. Access can be gained around to the side and rear of the property where the gardens are larger and more extensive, stocked with a variety of shrubs, bushes and trees. From the rear garden a wonderful view can be enjoyed over the countryside where 50 years or so ago the main railway line ran from London to Padstow.
Egloskerry has a County Primary School and a Parish Church and is found approximately 4 miles from the market town of Launceston which offers a wide range of shopping, schooling, commercial and recreational facilities and lies adjacent to the A30 trunk road giving access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.For those applicants seeking coastal escape, the North Cornish coast can be reached by car fairly easily as it is approximately 17 miles away.
