Property Description

Nestled within the heart of Launceston, known for its historical charm and local community, this highly individual three storey, three bedroom semi-detached 'Gothic style' house presents a rare opportunity for those seeking a unique home.

Designed and built by the renowned local architect Otho Bathurst Peter (who also had a hand in designing other well known buildings including the Town Hall, Craigmore House and the Southgate Arch) in the late 19th century, who resided at the property until his death in 1937.

The house is imbued with the timeless allure of Gothic architecture, boasting intricate details including coving, Gothic surrounds around the solid pitch pine internal doors and the pointed arches around the windows. There are ornate embellishments such as original marble fireplaces, geometric porcelain floor tiles, a slate floor in the kitchen and a stunning original staircase. Our clients have, over the last 30 years or so, loved and cared for the property, retaining the original feel and charm throughout. They have re-lined all four chimneys, replaced the felting in the gulley and re-nailed the inner roof slates and there is now main gas fired central heating fired by the Rayburn located in the kitchen.

Enjoying a pleasant and accessible location, the new owners will benefit from easy access to the amenities of the town, including shops, cafes, and cultural landmarks, all within a short stroll from the property, including Launceston Castle and grounds via one of the best Georgian streets in the UK, Castle Street.

Spanning three floors, this beautifully designed home offers generous living spaces, with period features, including a formal dining room, drawing room and a library. The interior exudes warmth and character, with ample natural light filtering through the large windows, which offer views from the second floor over the Kensey Valley and Launceston Castle.

On the second floor, the accommodation comprises three well-appointed bedrooms, providing ample space for family living or hosting guests. The kitchen and bathroom are found on the ground floor, with the kitchen featuring the Rayburn.

Step outside to discover a pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the property, providing a good space for outdoor entertaining.

With its captivating Gothic architecture, convenient location, and versatile living spaces, this semi-detached residence presents a unique opportunity to the right buyer. There is no onward chain and a viewing is highly recommended.

The ancient town of Launceston is 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. For further communications the Cathedral City of Exeter is approximately 42 miles distance, and has a more extensive range of shopping and leisure facilities, as well as access to the M5 motorway, mainland 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 25 miles from the property and again offers extensive facilities as well as regular cross channel ferry services to France and Spain.

There is joint, front and rear access with the neighbouring property. There is no parking being sold with the property. There is easy access to car parks with yearly permits available and there is on-street parking in Tower Street, on The Walk or along the stunning Georgian street, Castle Street.
