Property Description

Lower Crockett Farm is an exceptional property which offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of rural paradise on the edge of the coveted Tamar Valley. Whether seeking a private family retreat, a hobby farm, a home for multi-generational living/a separate holiday let or for a luxurious countryside residence, this stone cottage and barn exceeds expectations with its charming features, expansive grounds, and idyllic location.

The heart of the home, the farmhouse style kitchen/dining room, is equipped with a traditional AGA stove, offering warmth and character, alongside modern amenities including integral appliances such as a wine fridge, dishwasher, a ‘Neff’ oven and hob and a washing machine. A spacious pantry ensures ample storage space for culinary enthusiasts, with a central island adding useful work top space and storage in addition to the wide range of matching wall and base units, and has a practical parquet style tiled floor and a double Belfast sink.

There are three gorgeous reception rooms. The generous family room, currently used as a formal dining room, has a hugely impressive Inglenook stone and granite fireplace, with a Delabole slate hearth and a wood burning stove, as its focal point. This leads through to the living room, which has a very different feel as it is part of the original 18th century stone cottage. In fact, this one of the individual factors within the property, the difference in feel from the original stone and granite cottage to the converted barn.

The living room has a beam ceiling and fantastic, inglenook fireplace with two clome ovens and a wood burning stove. The sitting room is currently used as our client’s study, and features another fireplace and wood burner. Completing the ground floor is a rear lobby, front porch, store, bathroom and a separate cloak room/WC.

Offering convenience and comfort, the property features four, first floor, beautifully appointed bathrooms (two en-suite), each designed with meticulous attention to detail, modernised to provide stylish amenities featuring double shower cubicles, vanity units and high quality sanitary ware, tiling and splashbacks.

There are six bedrooms in total. Four of these are located in the cottage, along with the large family bathroom and a separate shower room/WC. The hallway connects through to a light and airy galleried landing, benefitting from a vaulted ceiling with exposed A-frames, which is another room in itself, ideal for a study or library. There are two further double bedrooms, both with an en-suite, vaulted ceilings, and exposed A-frames. These bedrooms also benefit from Juliet balconies, and the master bedroom has doors opening onto the rear patio, ideal for a morning coffee.

Ensuring year round comfort, the property is equipped with an efficient oil fired heating system with two boilers servicing the cottage and barn, and the AGA in the kitchen providing all year round warmth. The majority of improvement works were carried out under the watchful eye of our client, with a well-regarded local builder undertaking most of the work; this included some roof repair/replacement, complete renovation/redecoration of the barn, re-building a chimney, upgrading the cottage with the inclusion of engineered wood windows, installing Fibre to the property and completely transforming the outbuildings. This is not to mention the creation of the farmhouse style kitchen and the modernisation of the four bathrooms. Fibre optic broadband is connected to the house, ideal for working from home.

Several stone outbuildings now house top quality workshops with specialised, hard wearing flooring and updated electrics - providing ample space for hobbies, small-scale businesses and storage. The double garage/workshop has two automatic roller doors, and the single storey stone workshop could be easily returned to looseboxes, if desired, as the three doors have been left in situ.

For car enthusiasts, the six car garage (which has been completely re-built, using traditional materials in keeping with the surroundings) would be a great space for securely storing classic cars or motorbikes, with hard wearing modern flooring and five double sockets on each side, for ease of maintenance and working.

The garage, house and outbuildings are nicely situated around a central, brick paved courtyard, offering ample parking for numerous cars, lorries or larger vehicles.

The brick paved drive leads through to the large agricultural barn. This offers a huge space for storage, or for stock, and is presented in good order. There is a separate tractor access to the barn and fields, which is very useful indeed, and just in front of the barn is a well enclosed orchard. From here, there is good access to the fields, which are ideal for grazing or to keep horses on.

The remainder of the expansive grounds includes a mix of informal gardens and woodland, perfect for leisurely strolls or outdoor activities. Tucked away in the woods a bridge leads over the stream, to a woodland glade. The shepherds hut is located here, and was used as an art studio. This is included in the sale and is a real ‘get away’ from life, in an idyllic, very quiet spot, with just the sound of the birds and the noise from the stream. The woodland is a mix of younger broadleaf trees, planted via a grant under previous ownership, and ancient woodland towards the bottom of the valley. There is separate road access into the woodlands as well. A dedicated kitchen garden and greenhouse offer opportunities for self-sustainability and gardening enthusiasts, with a colourful garden stocked with mature trees and perennials to the front and side of the house.

The southerly orientation provides ample natural light and stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Far reaching view can be enjoyed over the Tamar Valley, with Dartmoor in the distance, and towards Kit Hill in the opposite direction.

The property is conveniently located, within close proximity to village amenities in Stoke Climsland. This thriving rural community boasts a village Primary School, a Social Club and a Post Office with sports groups, scouts and the well-known Duchy College all close to hand.

The larger town of Callington is some three miles away and caters for most day to day needs with a senior school, a medical centre, a library and a choice of supermarkets. Other commercial and recreational facilities can be located in either Launceston or the Devon Stannary Town of Tavistock . There are private Schools with St Josephs (Launceston) and Mount Kelly (Tavistock) within a 20/25 minute drive. At Launceston, access can be gained to the A30 dual carriageway which provides good links to Truro and West Cornwall, in one direction, and Exeter and beyond in the opposite direction.

The continental ferry port and the city of Plymouth is within a 40 minute drive and provides excellent, sea and rail connections, and offers a plethora of cultural, recreational, and commercial opportunities.
