A delightful and historically interesting semi-detached property set in a rural hamlet with easy access and views over Bodmin Moor. Far larger than first appearances, the house has a great deal of character and space for a large family.
Trenhorne House was originally built in the sixteenth century near an ancient abbey, facing the Northeast side of Bodmin Moor. Substantial transformations took place in the eighteenth century, leading to the creation of two upper floors. A further extension took place at the turn of the century, creating a Victorian wing to the house. This wing is a separate property today.
The house is composed of a sixteenth century lower ground floor dining hall of approximately 14 x 35 feet. Among its features, this room contains an original granite fireplace with bread oven, and original slate flooring. Attached to the dining room, an old dairy room has been converted into a kitchen and utility room of approximately 17 x 9 feet. The water supply comes from a local spring.
The first floor opens to a double drawing room of approximately 14 x 35 feet. This room contains two slate fireplaces and pine flooring and is loosely divided into two seating areas. The drawing room is adjacent to a conservatory of approximately 14 x 14 feet. This is elevated over the garden offering good views of the surrounding area.
A study or fourth bedroom is on this floor, as is a family bathroom.
On the second floor there are two double bedrooms with en-suites and south facing gardens and a third bedroom/library and additional family bathroom. The two main bedrooms, directly above the drawing room, have extensive views over the Bodmin Moor.
The house has a private garden of sufficient size for a children's playground, and a private driveway. The garden and the house have commanding views over Bodmin Moor.
The property is situated in the hamlet of Trenhorne on the eastern edge of Bodmin Moor. It is just under 2 miles from the self-contained village of Lewannick with its post office/general store, well respected local pub, primary school and thriving village hall. The nearby village of Coad's Green has a primary school whilst Launceston, the historic capital of Cornwall, is some 6 miles away offering a range of amenities including shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.
An ideal central location for touring the whole county, there are long sandy surfing beaches and sheltered coves to explore to the north and south. You will be spoilt for choice with attractions to suit most tastes which include Launceston Steam Railway, Tintagel with its Arthurian Legends, The Eden Project, Bodmin Moor for its lovely walks and numerous National Trust properties and gardens, to name but a few.
The market town of Tavistock on the edge of Dartmoor is 16 miles distant whilst Bodmin Moor is just a mile away. The Hamlet is well placed for access to both the A30 and the A38, linking to the major towns of Exeter (47 miles) and Plymouth (22 miles) respectively. The countryside here is unspoilt and the views are simply stunning. Often the only audible sound is birdsong.
