A highly attractive period home and income opportunity to create a wonderful country lifestyle in idyllic surroundings together with your own woodland and extensive gardens extending to in all 3.6 acres. The current owners have recently heavily invested in the refurbishment of the detached barn and annex to provide high quality letting accommodation which is now in it's first full season with strong forward bookings. The accommodation within the house is spacious and laid out with four bedrooms over two floors. The layout provides ample opportunity for two family occupation either using the annex or within the main accommodation. An internal access could also be renewed between the house and annex also if required.

The property is found half a mile from the pretty village of Pillaton, amongst rolling Cornish countryside. The village provides a public house, village hall and church.

Wider amenities can be found in Saltash, 5 miles, and the historic city of Plymouth 7 miles. Cornwall's southeast coastline lies 10 miles away with an abundance of attractive and interesting beaches and coves with excellent access. Mainline railway station is provided at Saltash with the quicker London service from Plymouth taking, on average, 3 hours 36 minutes.

An impressive first floor kitchen/dining/living space open to the roof with exposed 'A' frame beams. Kitchen area recently refitted with grey shaker-style cupboards and living space with wood burning stove. Stairs lead to the ground floor hallway with stable door opening onto the garden. Bedroom with French windows opening onto the garden, refitted luxury en-suite shower room with walk-in drench shower, large panelled bath, wash hand basin and low-level WC. To the rear is a gravelled garden and paved area.

Granite posts with 5-bar wooden gate open onto a large gravelled drive leading to the garage. The driveway continues down to the front of the property providing ample parking space for multiple vehicles. Sloping lawns and walled hedges and beds surround this area. The double garage has extra length providing open plan space, storage and power and light connected with doors to the side and rear. The gardens extend from the rear of the property providing level lawn, steps that lead up to a higher garden area, accessed also from the first floor boot room, to a higher lawned terrace with surrounding hedging. Beyond this is the kitchen garden with detached greenhouse, raised vegetable beds and gas storage tank. Wonderful views can be enjoyed from this point across the surrounding countryside to Dartmoor in the distance. To the lower side of the house is an outbuilding with open area suitable for a multitude of purposes including workshop and storage, power and light connected. Adjoining utility space with sink unit with mixer tap, space and plumbing for washing machine and separate cloakroom with low level WC. Beyond this a wide grassed pathway and walkway leads through to the paddock area whilst lawns and steps lead down to the woodland with a pond and fenced enclosure. Beyond this pathways wind and meander down through wonderful dual wooded valleys into the mixed deciduous woodland, providing the most wonderful backdrop and resource for peace, quiet and enjoying nature at its natural best. The higher paddock, previously referred to, has been left to revert to nature with wide pathways and grassy areas amongst the trees. To the far end is a small orchard with a mixed range of fruiting apple trees.

The holiday letting business, now in it's first year since the full refurbishment of both the properties is attracting strong bookings. The owners are using their own newly built website and 2 separate agents to manage the marketing. It has to be said the contemporary and characterful presentation of both properties makes them a highly attractive prospect for this improving domestic holiday and short break market.

Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil central heating in the main house and annex and LPG in the barn.
