The property is situated in an extremely quiet and private position along a no-through road on the edge of Harrowbarrow. The bungalow is surrounded by its own gardens and grounds, and benefits from some attractive views across neighbouring countryside. Harrowbarrow is a small village in East Cornwall on the edge of the Tamar Valley. It is served by a Post Office and shop, a pub and a primary school, and is within easy reach of St. Ann's Chapel and Gunnislake where there are further amenities including two fuel stations, a Co-op mini market and a train station providing a direct rail link to the city of Plymouth. Three miles to the northwest is the town of Callington, offering extensive amenities including two supermarkets and a Secondary School. The thriving town of Tavistock in West Devon lies some seven miles to the east. Tavistock offers a superb range of recreational, educational and shopping facilities as well as a bustling town centre and popular pannier market. The city of Plymouth lies some 17.5 miles to the south.

An exciting opportunity to acquire a detached bungalow in need of refurbishment, sat within its own gardens and grounds amounting to 2.6 acres in all, including an enclosed paddock of 2.12 acres. The property is situated in a private and peaceful location, making this a very rare proposition. The bungalow offers three bedrooms and two reception rooms at present, although opportunities to extend or remodel the accommodation may exist, subject to any necessary consents or approvals. There is no onward chain.

The accommodation is accessed via a porch into a dual-aspect sitting room with a stone fireplace housing a Woodwarm log burning stove. Beyond the sitting room is a separate dining room, which in turn leads to the kitchen. The kitchen provides separate access to both the front and rear of the bungalow. From the sitting room is a hallway which provides access to three bedrooms, the shower room and separate WC. The property is in need of complete refurbishment throughout.

The standout feature of this property is the amount of space accompanying the bungalow (see our location plan). The property is approached from the south via an unmade lane and entered through a 5-bar gate into an enclosed parking area. There is an attached single garage, whilst formal gardens surround the bungalow on three sides. From the back garden there is access to the adjoining paddock which amounts to 2.12 acres. Enclosed by banks and hedge boundaries, the paddock slopes gradually from Southeast to Northwest and this allows for some superb views from the uppermost point. In the southernmost corner is an old gated access to the unmade lane which leads to the property. Located just inside the paddock is an old greenhouse, now in need of repair.

1. We wish to point out that a public footpath runs along the full length of the unmade lane used to access this property, although it does not cross or enter the property at any point.
2. The agents are in possession of a mining report, arsenic report and concrete screening test:
- The property is free of Mundic Block.
- There are historic mine workings and features in close proximity to the bungalow.
- The soil around the property contains an extremely high amount of arsenic, making the land unsuitable for grazing, cropping, keeping livestock or growing produce without mitigation, remediation or replacement of the soil.

Viewers are strongly encouraged to seek their own advice in respect of these points before viewing. The reports are available by email, by enquiry with Stags Tavistock on

Mains water and electricity. Private drainage (septic tank). Please note that the agents have neither inspected nor tested these services.

Due to the condition of the lane which leads to the property and in order not to create a traffic jam within it on viewing days, we request that viewers park opposite its entrance, in the village hall car park. Please note that vehicular access can only be gained to the property from the south, which may be contrary to SatNav guidance.
