Bathpool, Cornwall, Launceston PL15
Ref No: KE014-LI-SA32
Sitting comfortably within beautifully landscaped gardens, this attractive 5 bedroom character cottage benefits from a separate 2 storey studio, large garage and off road parking.
Steeped in history dating back at least 200 years, Lewarne Cottage has been under the stewardship of the current owners for the past thirty years. Situated in the attractive village of Bathpool, this five bedroom detached cottage has been substantially extended over recent years and now forms a most comfortable family home. In addition to the principal residence there is a further detached studio known as the Doghouse which offers considerable scope for additional living accommodation, subject to gaining the necessary consents.
The accommodation is full of warmth and charm throughout with features such as beamed ceilings, open fireplaces, exposed stonework and wooden lintels throughout many of the rooms. Approximately 18 years ago our clients substantially extended the accommodation at the rear of the property adding a large dining room to the ground floor together with a master bedroom, shower room & WC to the first floor living space.
The principal rooms include a sitting room with a stunning granite and stone inglenook fireplace and open fire, charming snug with a feature fireplace and inset wood burning stove and a formal dining room which opens out to the rear gardens. The bespoke kitchen has a range of built-in cupboards together with an oil fired Aga that also serves the domestic hot water system. Additional rooms include a side entrance porch which supplements the front porch and a useful ground floor WC. To the first floor there are five bedrooms, three of which formed part of the original cottage to the front and have the advantage of built-in wardrobe whilst the two remaining bedrooms can be found at the rear of the property located either side of the family bathroom/WC and the separate shower room/WC adjacent to the master bedroom.
The Doghouse is a detached former Cow Shed which was converted at a similar time of the large two storey extension to the principal residence. Having had many uses in the past including use as an office, storage and first floor artist studio, this two storey building has the advantage of a toilet and basin and offers a great opportunity for creating additional living space, subject to obtaining all necessary planning consents.
The gardens are well maintained, colourful and have been carefully landscaped by the present owners. The front garden is predominately laid to lawn and well enclosed by stone walling and a wrought iron pedestrian gate. Receiving the sun for most of the day the front garden has a glimpse of a view across to Bodmin Moor in the distance. At the side of the property there are a couple of useful wood stores. The rear garden has two greenhouses and a garden shed. Being predominately laid to lawn with mature beds and borders that include various shrubs, bushes and perennials, the rear garden also benefits from having a pretty patio area, corner seating area. From the first floor of the property at the rear a view can be enjoyed over the garden across the Lynher Valley. There is off road parking for at least three vehicles and a large detached garage/workshop with power and light.
