Property Description

This two bedroom detached, stone cottage has been within the careful ownership of our vendors for 21 years. They have spent much of their time there bringing the cottage up to date without losing any of the extensive character, which includes such things as a slate floor, an inglenook fireplace with exposed stone in the living room and painted beams on the ceilings throughout the ground floor. The windows have recently been updated with attractive UPVC white double glazing and all the doors have been replaced with no maintenance UPVC items.

Inside, there is a useful porch which leads into the main lounge/dining room. This room is partially divided into two separate areas. The lounge, like the dining room is dual aspect, it is dominated by the stone fireplace with a recently installed wood burning stove situated on a slate hearth. The dining space is generous in size and leads into a compact kitchen that enjoys a few pitch pine fronted floor based units with a Belfast sink set into a slate working surface. There is an array of open shelving and space for a dresser or a free standing cupboard. The electric oven will be included within the sale. The kitchen conveniently has a door to the garden as does the utility room which has a butler sink, slate work top and further cupboard space. There is plumbing and space for a washing machine, freezer and tumble dryer. A spacious WC on the ground floor could have space for a shower to be installed if desired.

Upstairs, there is plenty of eaves storage which is easy to access from the landing. Both the double bedrooms have built in wardrobes. One of the bedrooms enjoys an en-suite WC with the other benefiting from a tiled and glass shower cubicle.

The bathroom has a centrally placed freestanding role edged, claw feet bath and features a hand basin situated above a pine plinth.

Most of the heat for this home is generated by the wood burning stove and wall mounted electric heaters.

Outside, there is a formal front garden mainly laid to lawn with seasonal mature planting. Covered space for two cars is provided by two open fronted pole barns. There is a further range of open fronted pole barns providing ample storage for logs or garden machinery plus a timber shed.

The 3.25 acres of land are accessed via a wooden bridge crossing a stream leading up to a productive poly tunnel with adjacent chicken enclosure. Beyond is a mature orchard with various fruit trees with a metal gate leading into the wildlife meadow planted with specimen trees and a small copse. It was previously a registered small holding.

Beales cottage lies tucked away in quiet countryside between Yeolmbridge and North Petherwin approximately 4 miles north of Launceston which offers a wide range of shopping, commercial, educational and recreational facilities. Half a mile or so away is the B3254 between Launceston and Bude making the coastal resort of Bude (renowned for its coast line walks and sandy beaches) reasonably accessible. The A30 dual carriageway is found within 5 miles of the property giving excellent access to Truro and West Cornwall in one direction and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction. Further comprehensive shopping, leisure and transport links can be found at either the Cathedral City of Exeter (47 miles) or the Continental Ferryport and City of Plymouth (31 miles). Miles of countryside walks can be enjoyed direct from your front door.
