THE OWNER'S WORDS
We love the setting of our house, surrounded by countryside and wildlife, with many footpaths and bridleways, great for walking the dog, cycling and horse riding.
We also like being close to the village amenities and the bus route, which has been great for our daughter.
We enjoy the spacious characterful feel of the house, as well as having the additional studio and stables, our own water supply and a fairy grotto!
This is a versatile spacious and comfortable family home, quiet and rural without being isolated.
A fine example of a period family home with fantastic versatility inside and out. Dating back to C.1880, the classically Victorian features infusing character and charm are evident throughout. High ceilings, picture rails, feature fireplaces in bedrooms as well as the ground floor and a beautifully maintained geometric style tiled hallway. In addition, the typically oversized windows of this era provide fantastic light which creates a superb sense of spaciousness in the already generously proportioned rooms.
Versatility is the key word for this home and the entrance to the rear is the first example of this. Approached from the parking area, this simple yet practical space forms the entrance, boot, coat and utility room and even space for a dog or two. Opening then to the kitchen with a farm house style feel and a good range of floor and wall cabinetry, inset electric oven, gas hob and tiled floor and room for a breakfast table. A double opening offers semi-open plan living and connects the kitchen to the first reception room. Those with a preference for open plan living could create a fantastic kitchen/diner reaching 23 with some modification.
The cosy first reception room with feature fireplace, slate hearth and detailed period ceiling rose, also benefits from stunning rural views. Across the hall is a wonderfully light living room that enjoys the same countryside views and has a slate fireplace and engineered oak flooring, creating a lovely family room.
The ground floor also offers an en-suite bedroom with external access adjacent to the studio. This offers a wealth of opportunity as a study/office or even incorporating this room with the nearby studio, that alone already offers annexe potential.
First floor accommodation comprises a family bathroom and four further bedrooms one of which is en-suite. With potential for modernization, the bright and well proportioned bathroom is a great room to put your own stamp on. All bedrooms are good doubles with characterful Victorian throwbacks, notably the ornate feature fireplaces. The two large east facing bedrooms boast far reaching countryside views towards The Roseland and Nare Head on a clear day.
Private gated access leads to a sweeping drive the mature gardens on the north side. The abundance of established shrubs, trees and borders are a fitting entrance to the private and peaceful setting for this rural home. Leading to ample parking, two car ports, very useful stabling doubling as storage and a fantastic studio with endless potential.
The tranquil landscaped plot of approx. 0.4 acre surrounds the property and includes a raised patio enjoying the rural outlook, lawned areas, fruit trees, flower beds, a pond and natural boundaries. It is easy to forget this location is just moments from the village centre.
Within walking distance of an active village with ample amenities stands a substantial family home, surrounded by countryside, wildlife and offering rural views. Providing seclusion without isolation.
Lanner offers a wonderful community centered around a village hall, church, primary school with nursery, local shops and of course, a great village pub, The Coppice Inn. The rural location is balanced by great transport links allowing for easy access across the county. For those who dont drive, there are also good public transport connections with bus links to Falmouth, Truro and Redruth where there is mainline train station to London Paddington.
Lanner is spoilt for choice for immediately accessible country walks. Many trails double as bridle ways and follow old railway and tram lines amongst the rich mining heritage which beautifully sculpt the landscape. Carn Marth is an area of approx. 38 acres and offers beautiful walks steeped in history and stunning views for miles around, from St. Agnes Beacon to The Roseland. The area is supported by The Carn Marth Trust, a charity who are committed to maintaining the land as open space for all to enjoy. Amidst these beautiful surroundings is the Carn Marth Amphitheatre, an old granite quarry converted into a unique outdoor theatre used for an array of local productions in the summer.
